1) Events: Interviews, Seminars, Workshops, Classes, Exhibits

Interviews with Deborah Pietsch of Wake Up:Shift Is Happening

Here are 4 interviews Deborah Pietsch of Wake Up:Shift Is Happening did with me a year ago; we had fun talking about sacred geometry, the 7 Hermetic Laws, and a bit of pure non-dual metaphysics! Enjoy!
Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4

I'm looking for another local (or regional) venue to exhibit of all 12 of my "Martineau Solar System Series" giclée prints (gallery, performing arts venue, cafe, bank, science museum, public business office, etc.) (since they don't look nearly as nice stored in the big cardboard box in my living room :-) Suggestions appreciated! :-)

On Sep. 12-17, 2010, Dr. Leonard Laskow will present his wonderful seminar "Opening To Oneness Through Love"
at Esalen Institute on a particularly lovely portion of the Calif. coast;
highly recommended as are all his works, as well as the food, baths, scenery, community and amazingly
fun ambience of Esalen Institute.

I'm STILL continuing to work on the 2nd book; meanwhile if you haven't already, check out the 8-part article
series (links on my Events and Resources pages) which are moving closer and closer (thanks for your
patience!) to being fully expanded into the Geometry Code book. I'm focusing more time on this latest labor of love! :-)

If you are interested in sacred geometry workshops in the Ashland or Medford, Oregon area (or vicinity) please let me know! Here's my list of current and past events. If you have a local, regional (or global for that matter, as long as my expenses are covered) venue to suggest, please let me know!
==================================================================

2) New Products, Articles and Tutorials

I'm STILL continuing to work on the 'behind the scenes' foundational architecture for a brand new website... Stay tuned!
Meanwhile, not long ago I made a FaceBook page for GeometryCode.com (just do a search on "GeometryCodeCom".)
This new FaceBook page actually has a bit easier access to 4 main product categories (some of you might not have known I had that many! :-) ...

The Martineau Solar System Series...
Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook (probably the most familiar to readers of this bulletin) ...
The Geometry Code - Meditation Tool, ScreenSaver, and eBooklet ... and
Sacred Geometry Video Patterns (Gradient Wipe Transitions for Final Cut Pro)

==================================================================

3) Recent Introductions ... (Even Still Fairly) New :-)

I recently introduced a new Twitter page for GeometryCode ...
and there's vast unexplored 'twee-territory' to explore! :-)

==================================================================

4) Website(s) of Interest

Trimble has a really well done (fascinating) tutorial on how GPS navigation works; the geometry of triangulation among other fun techy topics is explored.

==================================================================

5) Books, Movies and Music of Interest

Inception (I've now seen the movie 3 times, so I'm recycling last months review again, with an addition ... :-)

One additional clip has been added to this article ( Inception and Forgiving the Dream We Made Up ) from last month; a very surreally peaceful music video by Fiona Apple, demonstrating the 'center of the cyclone' peace that arises when one doesn't take the dream too seriously; in this whimsical case, when the diner she is in is being ransacked and looted.

Inception and Forgiving the Dream We Made Up is a blog post I made in response to other excellent blog musings about the film Inception (which not only features the idea of living in a dream and projection, but even refers to forgiveness and unconscious guilt! Not bad for a 'mainstream' movie! :-) Even the 'totem' (device for figuring out if you're dreaming) was sort of a top-like shape like you'd imagine fitting between two tori (donut shapes) stacked on top of each other.
==================================================================

6) Affiliate(s) of the Month: Astrologix

Astro-logix offers a unique system of glow-in-the-dark hubs and day-glow cylinders to make a phenomenal variety of 2D and 3D geometric models.

==================================================================

7) Quote(s) of the Month

"Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... It is a good thing to proceed in order and to establish propositions (principles). This is the way to gain ground and to progress with certainty. ... I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility can be proved, either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason, or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is a fact in nature." – Gottfried Leibniz, 1670)
==================================================================

8) Image(s) of the Month - Cross section of a Great Icosahedron


A version of this image (with different colors) is featured on the cover of Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook
==================================================================

9) 2010 (now annual) multimedia CONTEST!

I've decided to make the Sacred Geometry Multimedia Contest an annual event, so you NOW have
until Dec. 31, 2010 to send me entries (inspired by Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook, or other
images or ideas on the site) to win a free GeometryCode screensaver and eBooklet!

==================================================================

10) Request for Submissions

If you would like to stay connected and network with kindred souls online, check out my pages on
Twitter, LinkedIn and FaceBook. I'm enjoying connecting with both recent and long-time friends and colleagues
and discovering new friends of friends (and soon friends of friends of friends... :-)

As always, please let me know how I can support you. Please send me any interesting items about
sacred geometry or related interests (since everything is interrelated!
Thanks for your interest & support! :-)

BTW, I always appreciate enthusiastic reviews on my Amazon SGDS book page, and it's a good
"win-win" way to cross-promote your work as well.
