Subjects covered during the first year, which sees the Elements as the main theme: the four elements we contact with our external senses. Air, Water, Earth and Fire, but also other elements of Alchemy and Selfica.

You will learn the approach to health, disease, and especially to healing, according to Damanhurian principles. It’s a deep and synergistic personal path of self-healing, made of theoretical and experiential phases in which the group becomes a suitable container for growth and self-knowledge. The path  leads to an awareness of what it means to heal others, and therefore heal ourselves.


it's the matter handled by the school psychologist. Its goal is to educate the students in the therapeutic relationship. In this area ​​theoretical and practical phases alternate in a harmonic dance in order to produce change and real transformation.


this field deal with all the typical themes of holism, according to the vision of the School of Thought of Damanhur: mind-body-soul connection, and the practical settings for prevention and prophylaxis, along with suggestions, the importance of the mind, the energy levels and fields of influence in which we are immersed, and more.


starts where Quantum Physics ends. It is a subject that explores the nature of the reality surrounding us, the nature of the soul and of the different parts that compose it: Inner Personalities, Inner Senses that belong to the divine origin of the human being, reincarnation, the laws that govern the universe and life, the structure of time, the Cosmogenesis, spiritual ecosystem, magic and magical technology. .... all topics and themes which are then resumed and deepened in subsequent levels over the three years of school.


through the use of Expressive arts, such as emotional theater and figurative arts, like working with clay and the creative use of color, art therapy becomes a useful tool for the future Healer to deal with matter and shape it, but also to give space and expression to emotions.


the dream is a fantastic working tool for the therapist. It is often there, in that suspension of consciousness, that our soul is able to communicate with the mind and the body, activating mechanisms of self-healing. Students learn to interpret their personal dreams language according to gradually deeper levels of depth and symbolism, and the language of  dreams that emphasizes the course of illness and healing.

introduced in Damanhur through the research of Falco - Oberto Airaudi, Selfica was widely used in Atlantis and traces are to be found in Egyptian, Etruscan, Celtic and the ancient Arabian cultures. It’s a discipline that creates structures based on the spiral and the use of metals , colors, special inks and minerals that focus and direct vital energies and intelligences. Selfic energies belong to a field of our universe characterized by ultra-light speed, and when they are called inside an object it's as if they undergo a sort of deceleration, which on our plane of existence is manifested as synchronicity. They draw to us useful conditions and in exchange the self intelligence has the opportunity to experience a different world than their own. In the school we treat theoretical basis and have some practical application of Selfica .

To these basic materials are added:

  • experiential Anatomy and Physiology
  • use of meditative paths in the magical atmosphere of the Sacred Woods Temple in contact with the Ether element, a lesson of Psychoneuroendocrinology
  • elements of dietician and nutritional education.



This teaching unit is dedicated to the resolution of conflicts, to overcoming one's own limits, and to the exploration and definition of therapeutic relationships. Students and teachers have the opportunity to work together and confront the themes and issues that emerge from beginning to work as a healer. In depth studies of the nature of health and illness are also included to increase students’ knowledge and awareness in this field.



The last training phase, which leads to true therapeutic maturity, through an ever more aware use of the energy and of a magical-spiritual view of life. In this level, students study different ways of laying on the hands, and other systems of healing that complete the training of the healer, for example, Damanhurian massage.
