Quando in un bosco ne percepisci la bellezza e diventi tutt'uno con il bosco, allora, intuitivamente, sei in armonia e in pace con le Dee e con gli Dei. Essi sono parte della nostra vera natura, la nostra Natura Profonda, e quando siamo separati dalla nostra vera natura, viviamo nella paura. Percepire questa normalità vuol dire dare un senso reale al vivere che è insito in tutte le cose.

Intraprendere la Via Romana al Divino significa iniziare un percorso di risveglio: praticando l'attenzione e la consapevolezza continua ci incamminiamo lungo una strada sapendo che ciò che conta è il cammino per sè più che la destinazione.

When you, entering a forest, perceive the beauty of the forest and you feel to be in a complete harmony with it, then, intuitively, you are in peace with the Deities. They are an essential part of our real nature, our Deep Nature, and when we are separated by our real nature we live in the fear. Perceiving such normality means giving a real sense to our lives.

Undertaking the Roman Via to the Deities implies a path to awakening: with the practice of continuing consciousness and awareness we undertake our walking knowing that taking the path is more important than the destination itself

Dec. 18th - Dec. 22nd: Saturnalia

Saturnalia encompass a festivity period dedicated to Saturn or "primordility": Saturn is linked to the idea of a past "Golden Age" without social divisions, wars and great freedom and happiness.

Saturn is defined as "Time preceding Time": he is named also "the Perfect", "the Eldest" or "the Sower" because in this period, after the sowing, seeds rest under the ground.

Saturn has a peculiar role within the Roman Traditional Pantheon because tradition states that Saturn, after being deposed by Jupiter as Lord of the Universe, found refuge in Latium (the region where Rome was founded) where Janus reigned. Janus was the sole God who gave hospitality to Saturn teaching also to Saturn the art of sowing. For this reason Latium, and in a broad sense Italy as a whole, were named "Saturnia Tellus" (Land of Saturn).

During Saturnalia anything is permitted and possible because Saturn is the idea of total freedom and licit. During this period the main activities are suspended and time is completely devoted to celebrations and parties.

These days are inspired to freedom of expression and great conviviality meeting friends and families to share joyful meals accompanied by wine and cakes.

This ancient festivity has been transformed into Carnival.
