SACRED GEOMETRY – PRINCIPLES AND PRACTISE
Four independent modules on principles and practice of Sacred Geometry.
Geometry is the study of the ideal patterns that describe everything we can see and touch, and even think about.
Through the study and practice of Geometry we discover the inherent proportion, balance, and harmony that exists in any situation and ground ourselves in the experience of self-awareness. The cosmic creating process is deep within us and can emerge through our hands with the help of the three traditional tools of the geometer-the compass, the straightedge, and the pencil. To the ancients these tools represented three divine attributes that designed the patterns of the world
- SG1 – The Birth of Form – The Vesica Piscis and the First Forms
- SG2 – Nature’s First Pattern – The Flower of Life and Platonic Solids
- SG3 – Beauty and Harmony – The Fibonacci Numbers and Golden Proportion
- SG4 – Decoding the Yantra
SG1 – The Birth of Form – The Vesica Piscis and the First Forms
The Vesica Piscis was recognized and applied in ancient art and architecture as a functional symbol of the fusion of opposites and as a passageway through the world’s apparent polarities. It is an opening to the womb from which geometric forms are born.
Using a geometer’s tools, we explore the birth of the first forms and examine their principles in the world around and within us.

SG2 – Nature’s First Pattern – The Flower of Life and Platonic Solids
Literally appearing as a beautifully balanced and perfectly proportioned flower, the Flower of Life is recognized in many cultures around the world. As a symbol, the Flower of Life is considered to demonstrate the whole of the universe as well as its diverse components working together in harmony. It is known as the genesis pattern and the secret symbol created by drawing 13 circles out of the Flower of Life contains 13 informational systems that are able to give us access to everything ranging from the human body to the galaxies
The 5 Platonic solids (Tetrahedron, Cube or (Hexahedron), Octahedron, Dodecahedron and Icosahedron) are ideal, primal models of crystal patterns that occur throughout the world of minerals in countless variations.
In this module, we take a journey to construct the Flower of Life and through the emergence of the Metatron’s Cube within it, we discover the Platonic solids and the magic of creation.

SG3 – Beauty and Harmony – The Fibonacci Numbers and Golden Proportion
Named after the thirteenth-century Italian mathematician who drew attention to it, the Fibonacci Series appears in many places in natural phenomena, and a number of studies document its appearance in nature, art and design. The ratio between the
Fibonacci numbers gives rise to the Golden Mean Proportion. It can be said that wherever there is an intensification of function or a particular beauty and harmony of form, there the Golden Mean will be found. It is a reminder of the relatedness of the created world to the perfection of its source and of its potential future evolution.
The self-replicating symmetry of the Golden Proportion appeals to us because we unconsciously sense its internal balance, recognizing in the harmony of these relationships the harmony within ourselves. The Golden Proportion resonates with the core of life, reminding us of our own infinite depth and beauty. In this module we experience hands on and through study the Golden Mean Proportion in nature, art and architecture

SG4 – Decoding the Yantra
Yantra literally means “instrument”. Yantras are constructed on the immutable laws of sacred geometry, being symbolic representations of the energy patterns of a deity and are powerful ‘centering’ devices for harnessing the divine energies. Every
Yantra becomes the dwelling place of the deity it represents. Yantras carry spiritual significance, and point the user to higher levels of consciousness.
The act of drawing and painting Yantras teaches the mind how to concentrate, how to be one-pointed. Yantra drawing requires accuracy, exactness, discipline, concentration, neatness and patience. The geometrical forms of the Yantra activate the right hemisphere, which is visual and nonverbal. In this module, we deconstruct the Yantra and its symbolism and learn how to create a Goddess Yantra using the principles of Sacred Geometry.
