Circle folding play with grandkids

Tetrahedral Fractal 550w
Recently our grandkids Arianna (pictured with the tetrahedral fractal on her head; we later added a nested octahedron inside the 4 tetrahedra) and Nicholas were here for some (paper plate) circle folding practice. We went through some of the exercises/shapes from the Series Book 1 of Bradford Hansen-Smith’s Explore Folding of the Circle which includes the five platonic solids, three primary polyhedra (including a spherical version of Bucky Fuller’s vector equilibrium a.k.a. cuboctahedron) and ‘one principled pattern.’
His excellent books provide both the theory and background for teachers and/or home-schoolers, as well as lots of inspiration to explore further. Here is an example photo and illustration from that first geometric exercise book.

Class: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws: Denver, CO Nov 5, 2012

Universal Geometries of Inclusion: How Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Become Reminders for Kindness - Denver class 5Nov2012
On Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, from 7-9PM (Mountain Time) I’ll be giving an evening multimedia class/presentation: “Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation” at Shining Lotus Metaphysical Bookstore, 2178 S. Colorado Blvd., Denver, CO 80222 I will share LOTS of visual multimedia imagery, animation and more, along with plenty of theory on the mystical underpinnings of sacred geometry, the seven ancient Hermetic laws of truth, take-home lessons from modern physics, and how the non-dual metaphysics of inclusion, kindness and forgiving our self-judgments is key to sustainable happiness! 🙂 There will be a book-signing after the class; both of my books, Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook and The Geometry Code, are available from Shining Lotus Metaphysical Bookstore. Space is limited to 20 participants, so please contact me ASAP if you’re interested and want to pre-register.

Thanks for your generous support for The Geometry Code book!

Many of you either bought a copy of The Geometry Code book on June 5th (the official ‘launch day’) or shortly thereafter. MUCH appreciated!!! The Kindle version is looming even closer the upcoming ‘radar’ too.

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.

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 workshops, presentations, exhibits and 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.

Colleague Michael Schneider has a new, lavishly illustrated and animated DVD: Constructing The Universe: A Journey From 1 to 12 which I just watched in its entirety… brilliant, yet very easy to follow and clearly explained, beginning at the bare basics and culminating in compelling cosmologies. Each of the first 12 counting numbers receives a first class tour through realms mundane to mystical, deepening our appreciation of numbers and their geometric interconnections from many disciplines, traditions, and perspectives. I always learn something new and interesting from his work. I highly recommend it!
I also 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 or mystical geometry.
Here’s an example photo taken from our TV screen (the actual image quality is MUCH better) showing how nested circles defined by a dodecagram and an equilateral triangle compose the geometry of the classic labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral.
