Upcoming Radio/Webcast Interviews

Saskia Roell will do an interview with me on her Your Soul Guidance show on Transformation Talk Radio Wed., 12 Sept. 2012, 7AM; MDT. Radio station WBLQ has a live stream or you can listen via 1230 AM in the vicinity of Westerly, Rhode Island.

Recent Radio/Webcast Interviews/Podcasts/Videos

I’ve been updating the Events page with upcoming, ongoing, and past radio and internet interviews, presentations, and more.

Among the recent past interviews I’ve participated in (with free audio archives online that you can listen to) are:

… and many more on the Events page.
I always enjoy talking about the non-dual Metaphysics, Psychology, Symbolism, Philosophy and more contained within the book “The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation” which is available here.

Recent presentations/workshops

Thanks to Judy Kitt, all the resourceful, helpful staff of FMBR (Foundation for Mind-Being Research) who hosted my Sacred Geometry presentation in Palo Alto, CA, (July 27, 2012) and a workshop the following day, and all who attended! As soon as the video(s) of the presentation are made available, I’ll post them on the site.

Thanks also to Scott Bultman and all attendees of the 2012 Froebel USA Conference in San Francisco where I gave a (multimedia) presentation on The Geometry of Interconnectedness and Inclusion which included some new imagery and insights not given publicly before in prior presentations. As soon as the video(s) of that presentation are made available, I’ll post them on the site, also.

Folding Circle Books

Bradford Hansen-Smith … and Red Hen Books and Toys

RedHen Books and Toys (headed up by Scott Bultman who invited me to the Froebel Conference mentioned above) offers many unique, hard-to-find educational materials, toys and books such as Bradford Hansen-Smith’s circle folding videos, books and supplies.
I had the (long-awaited) pleasure of hearing a presentation by Bradford at the Froebel Conference, as well as participating in an experiential hands-on demo-workshop of his superb circle folding work. Highly recommended for geometers, as well as parents, educators, home-schoolers, and anyone wanting to rekindle their enthusiasm for how something as simple as paper plates (an economical way to experiment quickly) can be a tool to impart an entire philosophy of wholeness. Check out Bradford’s website (with introductory video) and his extensive gallery of folded-circle creations, …

… and cool videos about folded-circle creations. If you know ‘kids’ that like to play with ‘transformer’ toys, have them watch the last video in particular on this page and get very inspired! Exquisite morphi-gami! If you find these inspiring, make sure you click on the 5 FaceBook video links at the bottom of the page, too!

The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation - front cover artwork
You can read all about The Geometry Code book, including an overview, the intended audience, and much more here. If you enjoyed what you read in The Geometry Code book, I’d very much appreciate positive reviews on The Geometry Code – Amazon page here. If you are looking for a book that emphasizes the patterns and shapes (and briefly touches upon the metaphysics of interconnectedness) Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook is also available.

(2) Websites, Books, Videos, Imagery, Music and Quotes

Colleague Michael Schneider has a new DVD: Constructing The Universe: A Journey From 1 to 12 which is on it’s way to me as I type this. I’ll review this sure-to-be-wonderful DVD in an upcoming installment of this bulletin.
I frequently recommend his classic book A Beginner’s Guide to Constructing the Universe: Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science as an excellent companion (with complementary approaches) to SGDS for those new to the study and exploration of sacred geometry.

Karen Carty has some lovely fine art inspired by sacred geometry and a page devoted to it’s art/science.

Vandorn Hinnant’s LightWeavings website also has some superb sacred geometry-inspired fine art. Check out Vandorn’s gallery 1.
Vandorn Hinnant's Root Three Fractal SpiralGram 15
I particularly like the “Root Three Fractal SpiralGram 15” art made from nested equilateral triangles rotated 90 degrees in each fractal recursion: “The Truest I/Eye”. Black Art in America features Hinnant’s work here with a slide show.

Transcendence Design has some neat art based on Flower of Life tessellation (a.k.a. tiling, grid, or space-filling shapes).
