Global Arts Retreat - Nevada City, California 11-18 July, 2008
I'll be conducting Sacred Geometry Presentations (morning) and Workshop (afternoon)

collective awakening. Download the flyer here. For registration and details, contact
Dana Andersen.

2) New products

A DVD of a presentation I gave last summer in Ashland (well-received) is available online!
The Geometry Code: Symbolic Wisdom of Natural Law Within Us
Purchases of this DVD directly supports RVML (Rogue Valley Metaphysical Library),
a very worthy organization!

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

Digital audio download:
Sacred Geometry and Sound Healing :
How Ancient Hermetic Laws, Quantum Physics and
Universal Symbolic Archetypes all converge in Your Optimum Wellness

For those of you who weren't able to attend my presentation at the Globe Sound Healing Conference in Woodland Hills in January (or those who would like to listen to it again any tim at your leisure!), I've uploaded an audio transcript of my presentation. The GeometryCode logo (6 circular images surrounding the central one is the perfect backdrop for listening to this talk as we explore the 7 Hermetic Laws, etc.)

Enhance your edits: Geometric Video Patterns (Gradient Wipe Transition Images) for Final Cut Pro!
If you use Final Cut Pro (or know someone who does) ... check out these gradient wipe transitions!
Examples here soon!

4) Website(s) of Interest

More "best of the blog" excerpts this month: You may not have been overwhelmed (depending
on your musical taste) by elephant music (although I kinda like it) ... but even the most jaded
might have to admit this elephant art is pretty amazing!

A sequel to the Women In Art video, this silver screen sister clip also reveals the formless soul of the
feminine beyond form

The first two links above typify interconnectedness. Here's another with a focus on geometry, and geodesics in particular (with a fair amount of reminiscing!)

Thanks to Kay Kinneavy for sending these news items:
Labyrinth expert Robert Ferre will be in Tualatin, Oregon for a weekend of labyrinth events April 25 - 27, 2008
These events are sponsored by Labyrinth Network Northwest.
There will also be a Labyrinth walk for children on April 21, 2008 4-6:30 pm at St Paul's Episcopal Church, 1444 Liberty St. Salem, Oregon.

Thanks to Nassim (and his colleagues) for sending this news; the paper also has a diagram (Fig. 2b) showing approximate golden ratio relationships between data points on the graph, including: The BigBang, Atoms, Solar Systems, Galaxies and the Universe:
A new paper “Scale Unification - A Universal Scaling Law for Organized Matter” by Nassim Haramein, Michael Hyson, and Elizabeth A. Rauscher was recently published as a result of the proceedings of a physics conference - the Unified Theories Conference in Budapest, Hungary in 2006. The paper reveals that a scaling law can be written to demonstrate that scales ranging from the universal structure we live in to the atom and subatomic particles that make up our world can be described under the conditions of a black hole. Some of the most important calculations are found between equations 4 and 18 which are simple equations describing the nuclei of the atom (the proton) interacting with the vacuum structure and obeying the conditions necessary to be described as a black hole. Remarkably, the resulting circular velocity of such a system in Hertz yields the gamma ray emissions typically associated with atomic decay. This is a very exciting result, as in this case the atom is described in a completely classical way (or semi-classical) with very little quantum physics involved.

5) Book(s) of Interest
Order In Space by Keith Critchlow - One of the oldest books in my library; this is a superb
reference for primary patterns by a master geometer. When I sent him a review copy of my
Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook in the mid 90's, his only concern was that readers would get the erroneous idea that they needed a computer to explore sacred geometry. In order to emphasize
the text I had already written, in response to Critchlow's appropriate concern, I underlined this
sentence on page 5 (and have been giving hands-on workshops ever since whenever there's interest):
"I strongly encourage experimentation and particularly duplication with your own hand."

6) Movie(s) of Interest
Who Killed the Electric Car - a great documentary ... What's so difficult about sustainable mass
(and personal) transit until we perfect teleportation, anyway!

7) Music of Interest

Trivia dept.: When I recently did search for "sacred geometry" online, and then narrowed the
search to include lyrics, I found quite a number (almost 23,000 as of mid April 2008!) of
songs with the phrase: from Sting to Hayley Westenra (whose May It Be and Prayer songs
I reported on in last February's bulletin.) If you have a favorite song that has "sacred geometry"
in the lyrics, please let me know!

Source Books - Robin and Jerry Miner feature an excellent selection of books, videos and
related material; they get our enthusiastic endorsement...and have for over a decade!


9) Quote(s) of the Month

"You are not the ego, so when you become aware of the ego in you, it does not mean you know
who you are––it means you know who you are not. But it is through knowing who your are not
that the greatest obstacle to truly knowing yourself is removed."
- Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, p. 189

"So much of our suffering is because we create a certain image of ourselves, and the world doesn't
agree with that image. The less we identify with our "self," the less self we have, and the less it's
going to be insulted."
- Dr. Charles Tart, author of Altered States of Consciousness

"Matter as we know it is hardly a fragrance of a whisper."
- William A. Tiller, Ph. D.


10) Image(s) of the Month (with just the tiniest bit of advertising ... again - last of this series of 4
This pattern is similar to hundred of hexagonal patterns found in SGDS


11) 2008 (now annual) multimedia CONTEST!

I've decided to make the Sacred Geometry Multimedia Contest an annual event, so you NOW have
until Dec. 31, 2008 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!


12) Request for Submissions

If you would like to stay connected and network with kindred souls online, check out
LinkedIn. 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! :-)
