June 12-21 Special on most LightSOURCE products!

Mika Feinberg (the artistic and programming genius behind all the LightSOURCE products) &
I are both fans of each other's work. In 2006, we began a dialogue that evolved led to the
Geometry Code screensaver (which includes my eBooklet distillations from the upcoming book)
after numerous enthusiastic phone calls and emails. Since we completed our collaboration, both
PC and Macintosh versions of the original LightSOURCE have been updated to the latest higher
resolution technology (LightSOURCE 2nd Edition) to provide even more dazzling imagery
than the original.

If you've been meaning to get one of the exquisite screensavers from LightSOURCE... or perhaps
a DVD, CDROM, fine art Giclée print or note card, t-shirt, poster, or a digital download...
NOW is the time! During the month of June 2008 until June 21 use this promo code ( 47728 )
on any of these items from (by special arrangement with
you will receive a 20% discount! (Note: this does not include 3D forms, pendants or the
Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook
). I've been reviewing the few titles of LightSOURCE DVDs
and CDROMs that I hadn't seen before and they are all quite lovely! The newer releases (including
the completely remastered LightSOURCE 2nd Edition) have superb high resolution and even
smoother animation for an outstanding audiovisual experience! The LightSOURCE 2nd Edition DVD
(with Deep Time Dreaming with Hemi-Sync
)  is even more dazzling, and this enhanced resolution
and smooth flow carries over in the companion  LightSOURCE 2nd Edition screensaver/meditation tool.

Mika's superb sense of color and animation virtuosity encompasses a variety of related products.
Among the others, my personal favorite is his Sacred Gaiametry which features some of the most
inspiring crop formations. I find that these culture-independent patterns have a way of speaking to
our inner sensibilities directly, bypassing the intellect and touching a more transpersonal awareness.
Adding animation offers an even greater dimension to these universal archetypes, speaking to us of
how our nature is intrinsically interwoven. Blossoming Lotus (screensaver and DVD) and Hanta Yo
screensavers are also quite lovely! ... Just remember to use: coupon code: 47728.

Global Arts Retreat - Nevada City, California 11-18 July, 2008
I'll be conducting Sacred Geometry Presentations (morning) and Hands-On Workshop (afternoon)
on Saturday, July 12, 2008 as part of a week long retreat on using the Arts to catalyze
collective awakening. For registration and details, contact Dana Andersen.

Gary Renard 2-day Intensive Workshop - Medford, Oregon - 16-17 August, 2008; details here!
I'll be attending a workshop with Gary Renard, author of Disappearance of the Universe and
Your Immortal Reality, engaging (and joyous!) introductions to A Course In Miracles. His podcasts
are great fun (the first part with schedule updates, and more great content about quantum forgiveness
as the session progresses.

If you are interested in sacred geometry workshops in the Medford, Oregon area by myself and/or
Richard Feather Anderson, please send me an email with what you would like to see presented,
demonstrated (hands-on), explained, etc. and prefered dates, times, venues, logistics, etc. Thanks!
I'm working with Richard to see what we can schedule for Summer & Fall of 2008. I'm always
open to doing more workshops when there's interest, so please let me know! Here's my list of
current and past events

Exhibit: 9 of my “Martineau Solar System” series framed giclées prints will be on exhibit this summer
at Rogue Federal Credit Union, 415 Lithia Way, Ashland, Oregon; details forthcoming


2) New products

More on the way! :-)


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

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!

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
Seven Hermetic Laws, etc.)

Enhance your edits: Geometric Video Patterns (Gradient Wipe Transition Images) for Final Cut Pro!


4) Website(s) of Interest

My SGDS book was featured in a recent article by artist Robert Burridge on the Golden Section.
My wife and I have attended several of Bob's (always fun, engaging and richly useful) art classes,
most recently combined with a fabulous trip to Guatemala last fall where Nancy painted and I did
journaling in my notebook for my next book. In response to Bob's quick overview of the golden ratio,
I ended up doing an impromptu class on sacred geometry there overlooking gorgeous Lake Atitlán
from our hotel (for those who wanted to know more than Bob's very simplified system
of dividing a canvas into thirds to do a rough golden proportion) and it was well received. I'm
working on a smallish book geared to artists with lots of hands-on illustrations, step-by-step
instructions and classic constructions for 2D and 3D artists; stay tuned! (If there are particular items
YOU would like to see explained or illustrated in a book on sacred geometry for artists, now is the
time to get your requests in! :-)

Visions Of Energy: Impressions of The LIFE Force and Landscapes of the Inner Eye by
Vandorn Hinnant ... some elegant visionary art with lots of sacred geometric inspirations!

Here's some thoughtful writing (newly available) about Spiritual Inquiry by colleague
(and dear friend!) Dr. Leonard Laskow... it sure resonates with me! :-)

In honor of sunnier days, and rising dinosaur fume prices, here are a few links on sustainability;
the heart of which is realizing our intrinsic interconnectedness, of course!
We all have a Bright Future! Explore the abundantly helpful site of colleague Randy Bisenz,
showcasing solutions for a better tomorrow.

Here are some useful classes from friend Shaktari Belew and abundant links on going beyond
mere sustainability to thriving communities; mirrors of happy dreams!

For many years I 'subbed' as a DJ on KVMR-FM (a great community radio station! I recently
discovered my friend Michael Stone's show Conversations which has archives online you can
listen to his shows about 'commitment to co-creating a more socially just, environmentally
sustainable, and spiritually fulfilling world for us all.'

Anyone familiar with sacred geometry has likely experienced the seminal, prodigous and
wide-ranging work of Drunvalo Melchizedek. My first article for their online Spirit of Ma'at
ezine was published in 2004. This May 2008 article on "Take Home Lessons From Modern Physics"
has a brief intro overview. Stay tuned for more articles in this series...
Synchronistically, local artist friends Sally & Brian (are holding/hosting a Flower of Life
Workshop at their home in Talent, Oregon.
I've been writing a series of articles that are chapter excerpts from my upcoming
Geometry Code book which are appearing monthly in The Spirit of Ma'at ezine.


5) Book(s) of Interest

The Most Commonly Asked Questions About 'A Course in Miracles'
By Gloria Wapnick, Kenneth Wapnick
Some very relevant answers to questions that cover lots of ground in this world; The Wapnick's
insight and depth of understanding of the course shine throughout this helpful Q&A collection.


6) Movie(s) of Interest

Lars and the Real Girl
A surprisingly compassionate film about non-resistance and community;
not really about what it appears on the surface; isn't life like that! :-)


7) Music of Interest

Continuum by John Mayer
This album has a song I'm particularly fond of, "The Heart of Life". The lyrical gems for me are
"Pain throws your heart to the ground; love turns the whole thing around; I know the heart of
life is good" and "Fear is a friend who's misunderstood." The first lyric seems obvious (although
we seem to be able to ignore that unshakeable knowingness sometimes - A Course In Miracles
uses the analogy of a child's nightmare). The second lyric about fear being a misunderstood friend
reminds me of a quote (not sure of the attribution) about the egoic mind being a useful passenger
(mirror/warning system) but a lousy driver. Move over ego! :-)


8) Affiliate(s) of the Month

CafePress - The snazzy (I'm biased, but I like it :-) logo from the GeometryCode is emblazoned
on a wide variety of products including all sorts of apparel, mugs, coasters, aprons, keepsake boxes,
framed tiles, mousepads, hats, tote bags, journals ... much more ... even a teddy bear and a dog t-shirt!
If you want to surround your space with some neat geometric symbols, this is one way to do it! :-)
More importantly, you can read up on the meaning behind the symbols here.

BTW, if you have a favorite image from my Martineau Solar System Series that is (at present
only available via Zazzle,) or my Sourcebook that you'd like to see colorized, or any other geometric
image I've generated, for that matter just let me know, and I'll add it to my products from CafePress, too!


9) Quote(s) of the Month

"How necessary it is to cultivate a spirit of joy. It is a psychological truth that the physical acts of
reverence and devotion make one feel devout. The courteous gesture increases one's respect for others.
To act lovingly is to begin to feel loving, and certainly to act joyfully brings joy to others which in turn
makes one feel joyful. I believe we are called to the duty of delight."
- Dorothy Day

"The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook."
- William James

"People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and
future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion."
- Albert Einstein


10) Image(s) of the Month

This is one of the images in my Martineau Solar System series. This image,
Venus and Earth Orbits Per Martineau, depicts the octagonal relationship between the orbits of
these two planets. This image is available as a print (framed or unframed in a variety of sizes and
options), greeting card or apparel.

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! :-)
