Damanhur Mystery School

Not just another course.

Esoteric schools across the ages have quietly worked behind the scenes to help seekers answer these fundamental questions. For a millennia, these secret societies kept safe truths about the nature of our universe and the ancient civilizations that have called this world, home, so that the Great Work--the culmination of the spiritual path, enlightenment, the liberation of the human soul from the unconscious forces which bind it--could continue, individually and collectively.

Today, in a time when so much has been revealed, the difficulty is in finding a trusted source of timeworn knowledge. And even when you find it, how do you apply what you learn to go from theoretical education to practical illumination?

The Damanhur Mystery School.

Over the course of three years, the Damanhur Mystery School provides tools to comprehend the laws of the universe, the unknown history of humanity, the development of the subtle body, and more: pieces of the mosaic of Life that empower you to orient your work and trust your body's ability to guide you toward optimum health, ultimately giving direction to your existence.

Who are you?
Why do you exist?
What are you here to do?

An experience like no other:

  • Receive ancient wisdom through courses, discussions, individual coaching, and group support pulling in critical elements from Damanhur’s deep-well of practical expertise. 
  • Receive ancient wisdom actively being used today for planetary and cosmic advancement.

Tigrilla Gardenia
Nature-Inspired Mentor & ICF PCC Credential Coach

Fascinated by nature since her earliest memories, Tigrilla Gardenia turned that passion into her vocation. While curating a career in music engineering and technology, as well as her creative endeavors in acting, singing, and dancing, a chance casting unleashed Tigrilla’s spiritual journey. Unable to hold back the transformation, she stepped away from the safety of the corporate world, and launched her own production company.

Simultaneously, her spiritual studies blossomed into a growing Kabbalah and Practical Spirituality practice. Tigrilla’s explorations eventually landed her in one of the world’s largest spiritual communities, Damanhur, in Italy, where she began her plant reawakening.

As a World Ambassador for Plant Advocacy, Tigrilla’s studies focus on Plant Neurobiology, Vegetal Cognition, Social Innovation, Esoteric Teachings, Plant Music, and EcoSystem Thinking. She helps multipotentialites, creatives, and naturepreneurs confidently lead the Naturally Conscious lives they seek in collaboration with the plant kingdom (kin-home).

She continues to live, flourish, and further her own spiritual development in community, as well as guide others in their own personal journeys.

Crotalo Sesamo
Master Teacher | Spiritual Healer | Esoteric Researcher

From a young age, Crotalo nurtured a passion for archeology, natural medicine and esoteric studies—eventually meeting, at age 18, the visionary founder of Damanhur, Federation of Spiritual Communities, Falco Tarassaco (Oberto Airaudi). Falco personally prepared Crotalo to continue his alchemic art (called “Selfic paintings”).

As a longtime Ambassador of Damanhur, Crotalo travels the world, constantly teaching, hosting tours, offering private energy healing/divination sessions, and opening centers and reference points for the community. He has been responsible for the Damanhur Mystery School since its inception. In 2016, Crotalo was invited to speak at the United Nations as a representative of Damanhur. All the while, he continues his own research into the realms of social, spiritual, economic, political, educational and organizational aspects of community life.

Frequently Asked Questions

While it is recommended to participate live in order to ask questions and connect directly with the instructor, we know that is not always possible. For this reason, recordings will be available after each online course. This gives you an opportunity to recover the lesson on your own time and even watch it again to go deeper into the subject matter. You are welcome to ask questions via the comments or ask in the follow-up integration session.

All program fees are included in the school cost for the year. Travel, Room and Board, and any non-school related activities offered during the retreats are not included. 

Several of the courses require specific activations that can only be done in the Temples of Humankind and other sacred spaces in Damanhur, in Italy. For this reason, the first and third year retreats will be held in Damanhur. The second year retreat will be held in a US location to be determined by the group.

Exact retreat dates will be set by the students, in accordance with the school directors, within a two-month window offered to give space for maximum participation.

Recommended accommodations, transportation, meal options, and extracurricular activities will all be presented to you by the school. We offer a wide-range of opportunities to fill your specific needs and make it as easy as possible for you to come in person. We can also recommend a travel agent to help plan your flights, if desired.

In the event that you cannot come to the in-person retreat, every opportunity will be made for you to participate remotely. Please keep in mind that some activations and experiences can only be held in designated sacred spaces in Damanhur–such as the Temples of Humankind–or in a group setting. In that case, the school directors will help you organize next steps based on your specific circumstances. Please Note: it is possible that you will have to wait to participate in select future activities until you complete the required step.

Coupon code will be sent to you. If you did not receive it, please contact Tigrilla directly in an NCC message.

  • Up to 15 days prior to the first lesson, full refund minus 10% processing fee.
  • If you choose to cancel during the first year, you will be charged $350 per school month enrolled plus a 10% processing fee on the balance.
  • Less than 90 days prior to retreat date, no refunds available.

Curious about Damanhur and your instructors? 

Founded in Italy in 1975 as a social and spiritual expriment, Damanhur is a living laboratory for the future, a federation of intentional communities, and a worldwide movement that inspires others to live a life of purpose. The spiritual and esoteric paths guide the actions of every Damanhurian and those who choose to study with us.

Falco Tarassaco (Oberto Airaudi, 1950-2013), visionary founder of Damanhur, was a philosopher, healer, writer, and artist active in the field of esoteric research and new sciences. At the heart of Falco’s spiritual vision is the conviction that every human being has a divine nature to reawaken through conscious interaction with others. His teachings encourage the awakening of your Inner Guide through study, experimentation, and the full expression of individual potential, love, and connection with Life.

One characteristic of all Damanhurian teaching is the freshness, even when learning ancient wisdom. Our secret is the community—the container in which we actively experiment modern application of age-old philosophy and explore new paths. Being in a classroom with a Damanhurian teacher means studying and sharing with a fractal of an entire Popolo (People) currently applying the lessons in their own lives.
