AUGUST 31, 2015
Damanhur New Year's Eve is celebrated on August 31st every year, as September 1st is the beginning of the Damanhurian calendar year. During this celebration, the Stellar Hawk ritual takes place, with members of the Popolo Spirituale each lighting a candle to represent themselves. These candles are placed together in a large hawk shape, forming a constellation.
This is a symbolic moment of connection between our Popolo and other points of life in the universe that are considered to be connected with our intention of spiritual awakening.
