Symbolic geometry creates beautiful visual metaphors to illustrate the important questions of our time, such as “Who are we?”, “Where are we?”, and “Where are we going?” In this hands-on, interactive class, we will work with geometric motifs, and create geometric diagrams, from four different traditions to explore these questions in the arts, crafts and architecture of our time.
•Western mystery traditions in Gothic architecture, including the rose window of Chartres Cathedral
•Yantras (mystical diagrams) and mandalas from Tibet and beyond, showing us how to invite the sacred into our lives
•The alignment of Stonehenge, Newgrange, Celtic knotwork, and the spirals found on ceremonial objects and manuscripts
•The mystical geometry in Islamic art, which creates the garden of paradise using patterns that illustrate flowing water, flowers, and the star grid of the night sky
Join us to connect with the beauty and profound mystery of symbolic geometry, and invite the sacred into your life.
Note: If you have previously taken the Sacred Geometry class with these presenters, you will find new material offered here. Please bring a compass, a ruler, pencils and a pad of drawing paper.
