Oracle Press is pleased to represent authors and artists from The Federation of Damanhur in Italy, a sustainable spiritual community that is home to 1,000 residents. Damanhur was founded in 1975 by Oberto "Falco" Airaudi, spiritual guide and author of the Initiate Trilogy, which is required reading at the Damanhur Mystery School.
Dying to Learn is the first installment of a futuristic trilogy in which humans are living in a dystopian world. Capitalism has failed, a great cataclysm has occurred, and an “End Times” of our own making has left our planet in chaos.
In this wasteland, an Avatar named OroCritshna has come to Earth to teach and to guide the resurrection of the human race. He alone possesses knowledge of our history and divine potential. Humans, once again, must attempt to spiritually ascend, but OroCritshna finds few who are ready to become Initiates. Will you understand his messages of Truth, Love and Light?
Reborn to Live is the second installment of the Initiate series. Monk Vadusfadam assumes the duty left to him by Master OroCritshna: To awaken human beings to their divine origin and help them spiritually ascend. However, time is of the essence. Vadusfadam must quickly gather a new crop of Initiates to defend Earth against the Forces of Darkness.
Vadusfadam then leads the new Initiates through a labyrinth of imagery and interior challenges that are designed to detach them from the material plane and support their quest for enlightenment. The new Initiates must learn the rules of the “Game of Life,” free themselves from illusion, and reach self-awareness … before it’s too late! At the end of the book, multiple conclusions are proposed to test the dedication of the Initiate.
Seven Scarlet Doors is the final installment of the Initiate series. Monk Vadusfadam leads a small army of Initiates in a battle against the Forces of Darkness. During this spiritual quest, the Initiates must survive dangerous tests and solve metaphysical riddles that will unlock the Seven Scarlet Doors, which represent the stages of enlightenment.
The reader is invited to follow the clues and participate in this interactive journey, as Vadusfadam and his graduating class of Initiates steadfastly progress along the path to wisdom and eventually emancipate the entire human race. By the end of the story, the enlightened Initiates are “New Humans” ready to seed the “New Era.” An e-book – Road to the Central Fires: Prequel to Seven Scarlet Doors – is available as a FREE download when you order all three books in the Initiate trilogy (See below).
Road to the Central Fires is a prequel to Seven Scarlet Doors, the last book in the Initiate series. It is available as a free e-book to everyone who purchases all three of the Initiate e-books or texts. The prequel tells of one night around a campfire spent at the side of Time Monk Vadusfadam, and it provides additional clues that some Initiates may find helpful in decoding the trilogy. The eight dreams described in the prequel set forth principal steps toward inner-alchemy and enlightenment, as taught at the Damanhur Mystery School. Simply email Laura with proof of purchase to receive your free e-book of Road to the Central Fires in PDF, EPUB, or MOBI format.
The Bral Talej cards are based on an esoteric language that is believed to be the matrix of all languages. The cards contain sacred symbols set against vibrant illustrations, which create a resonance that allows the user to easily read the message inherent in each card. With practice, the cards serve as a “bridge,” to translate human events and thoughts into spiritual concepts which can then be used to reach higher levels of consciousness. This mystical deck contains 112 cards and an explanatory booklet written in five languages (English, Italian, French, Spanish, and German). The booklet also diagrams seven divination spreads.
The Bral Talej cards were created by Shama Viola and Oberto (Falco) Airaudi, founder of The Federation of Damanhur in Italy. Shama designed the divination system and Falco painted the background images. Damanhur also is the recipient of a United Nations sustainability award.
