The Oracle Institute

Damanhur was founded in 1975 by a group of visionaries who had a dream of economically and spiritually revitalizing what was once a small depressed town. Today, Damanhur helps to run green cooperative businesses that employ local townspeople who have embraced a new paradigm of peace, joy, and compassion.

Past Life Workshop

(Two Day Class)


Commence a journey toward the memories, talents, and possibilities contained within you! Recall of past lives will come to the surface during this highly creative and fascinatingly interactive experience. Damanhur uses a series of inner dynamic activities that help guide and reveal clues to specific past lives. By the end of the workshop, you will receive information about two of your past lives.

Ambassador Shama Viola will facilitate the class, which is enhanced by the Oracle at Damanhur in Italy, who studies and meditates upon your biographical data and photos provided in advance of the class. Shama then uses guided imagery, movement, drawing, music, and meditation to facilitate the reawakening of your prior life memories.


Space is Limited:


Because of the research done by the Damanhur Oracle in Italy and individual attention from Shama, this class is limited to 12 people.
