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

29-31 May: Ambarvalia

Ambarvalia is a rural procession (Ambarvalia means "country walk") to honour agricultural and rural Gods/Goddesses. During the Roman Ambarvalia the suovetaurilia sacrifice was made: it was the sacrifice of a pig, a bull and a ram for the land's purification. After that in every farm and village country parties were held.

The sacred ministers who made this sacrifice were the Arvales: they called themselves Fratres (Brothers). These sacred ministers were devoted to Earth's cult with secret rites held in a sacred wood dedicated to the Dea Dia thorugh an arcaic Latin language. Their symbol was a spike.

During this festivity period today we may pay tribute to Earth and her fruits, to agricultural activities and to those animals which with their death give us life.
