2) New Products

DVD of a presentation I gave last summer in Ashland now 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 7 Hermetic Laws, etc.)


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

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 new
gradient wipe transition images! I'm still working on some sample clips, so stay tuned!
They just moved to the top of my project list so you will be able to see what I'm talking about
(in case 'gradient wipe transition' doesn't mean anything to you! :-)


4) Website(s) of Interest

In case you haven't seen this wonderful TED talk by Jill Bolte Taylor suffice it to say that it is
well worth the 18 minutes of your time to watch. Rather than list a lot of links, I'll just focus on
one superb one this month. Here's my blog commentary about it, duplicated here:

Thanks to Joline S., Daniel H. and Dianna R. for all independently encouraging me to watch
this VERY inspiring TED talk by Harvard-trained brain scientist, Jill Bolte Taylor. When I get
2 or 3 "messages from the universe", I've learned to REALLY pay attention! :-) Now it's
my turn to encourage you to watch it (if you haven't already.) Her insights go way beyond our
tiny little brains in our tiny little bodies in this tiny little galaxy... to the spiritual 'energy' that
encompasses us all, and is ever present within us, linking us as one.

This powerful talk is a perfect complement to the wisdom in A Course In Miracles and
Gary Renard's fun introductions to that wisdom, reminding us that We (with a capital "W") are
not bodies
, even though "we" have them, and a timely reinforcement to our awareness that
exists beyond the ego (which tends to manifest in left-brain bias as Jill demonstrated) that
Eckhart Tolle is sharing so eloquently in his class (just watched class #2 as of this writing) with
Oprah Winfrey, who is also hosting a radio show and pre-recorded audio with
Marianne Williamson.

OK, just one more link to a bit of geometric nostalgia...a bit of reminiscing about living in a
geodesic dome
, which we built 3 (hard to imagine!) decades ago

5) Book(s) of Interest

Sacred Geometry: Philosophy and Practice (Art and Imagination)
by Robert Lawlor - This classic brilliant work expores the depth of meaning underlying form,
with classic constructions and superb illustrations. This is one of the books that rekindled my
interest in sacred geometry in 1991, thanks to Gregg Braden for introducing it to me then!

6) Movie(s) of Interest

The Ron Clark Story - an inspiring movie about a school teacher with unyielding vision;
be sure to watch the "Special Features" to hear Ron and get his contagious enthusiasm for
making a positive difference.


7) Music of Interest (new category! :-)
1 Giant Leap - This beautiful, soulful work of art (actually a DVD) also belongs in the world
music category, yet the commentary seamlessly woven into this flowing art makes it a powerful
documentary (really in its own genre) as well!


8) Affiliate(s) of the Month

9) Quote(s) of the Month

"Do I want the present moment to be my friend or my enemy? The present moment is inseparable
from life, so you are really deciding what kind of a relationship you want to have with life."
- Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, p. 201

"You are a non-local being, having a local experience"
- Gary Renard

"If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite."
- William Blake, (1757-1827) England

10) Image(s) of the Month (with just the tiniest bit of advertising ... again - 1 more to go :-)
This Flower of Life pattern is also featured (with numerous variations) on pages 85-91 of 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! :-)
