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

This next weekend, I'm assisting with (and VERY enthused about) a
3-day experiential workshop with Nouk Sanchez and Tomas Vieira,
authors of Take Me To Truth: Undoing the Ego in Ashland, Oregon from Nov. 13-15, 2009.
The topic is “Love Without Limits: Applying the Principles of ACIM Daily ," and promises to be as inspiring
and insightful as their superb book is. Tomas & Nouk will reveal why…
“you will never consistently experience what you really want until the one unconscious saboteur is revealed and released!”
I had the pleasure of meeting Tomas & Nouk in San Francisco at an ACIM
earlier this year where I also had the happy opportunity to hear Gary Renard,
Tom & Linda Carpenter, Lyn Corona, Martha Lucia Espinoza, Earl Purdy and many other wonderful folks.

BTW, if you would like to get regular updates on events and musings about A Course In Miracles and related
pure non-dualistic links, writings and other media, you might want to subscribe to the (free) ACIMblog bulletin here.

The ongoing exhibit of all 12 of my "Martineau Solar System Series" giclée prints (plus a few
extras) is STILL on exhibit (and has been since July, 2009 at the Peace House in Ashland, Oregon. I'm donating
20% of all art and book sales generated there to the Peace House. I'm not sure how much longer the art will be
there, so if you'd like to support my art AND make a charitable contribution to a great cause, now's the time! :-)

On June 20-25, 2010, I'll again have the pleasure of assisting Dr. Leonard Laskow for a fourth time with a
seminar at Esalen Institute on a particularly lovely portion of the Calif. coast;
"Awakening Your Healing Heart"; highly recommended as are all his works. I'll include another reminder about
this event when it draws closer, I just wanted to provide plenty of advance notice for those who haven't experienced
one of Dr. Laskow's superb seminars, or for that matter the food, baths, scenery, community and amazingly
fun ambience of Esalen Institute.

I'm STILL working 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. Now that we've moved to Ashland, Oregon,
and getting settled in, I'm looking forward to focusing more time on this long-overdue 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. I'm getting closer to another local workshop soon! 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

The Seventh Hermetic Law (Generation or Gender) ... is the topic for my most recent article on the
Spirit of Ma'at website. I posted this in the last three bulletins, but in case you missed the series of articles,
it contains brief excerpts from my upcoming book, The Geometry Code. I've listed the articles in this series on
my Resources pages, as well as my Events page.


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

Enhance your edits: Geometric Video Patterns (Gradient Wipe Transition Images) for Final Cut Pro!
OK, this one has been out a while! :-) I'll admit that, but these are real gems and you can be instrumental
in 'discovering' them from their current position of relative obscurity! :-) Also, there are lots of new
subscribers (1100 as of today!) so I'm guessing many of you haven't checked these out...


4) Website(s) of Interest

Lawren Freebody's Photos - Fractal Art Collection II

I might have shared this a while back, but still amazing that 5 new fundamental geometrical theorems
(first new ones since the era of Euclid) were discovered by Gerald Hawkins by examining crop circles.

Another great resource mentioned earlier that bears a fresh review (and introduction to new subscribers):
All Uniform Polyhedra provided by Dr. R. Mäder.

Thanks to Tomas (see elsewhere in this edition) for connecting me with Lindsay McAuley, who authored
this interesting site about Geometric Anthropometry.

5) Book(s) of Interest

I've been re-reading "Take Me To Truth: Undoing the Ego" by Nouk Sanchez and Tomas Vieira (see my Events section
above) and I'm amazed at how profound the inspiration seems now with the second reading! One of
those "they must have re-written it" examples. Here's a quote from page 89 that I particularly like that emphasizes the
principle of oneness (even transcending interconnectedness): "...there is no other. You are it.Whatever you give,
all the love, forgiveness, patience, trust, allowing, accepting and non-judgment all go to you. Because in the end there's
only you reflected in every single interaction you have with another."

6) Movie(s) of Interest

I"m going to depart from movies this time (only because I haven't had time to see many lately!)... But I did get a
treat and saw two amazinlgy great local plays by Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Equivocation and
The Servant of Two Masters. If you get a chance to see either of these, you're in for a treat! Thanks to Becky and Barbara,
respectively for gifting me opportunties to enjoy these superb events.

7) Music of Interest

A recent favorite Pandora channels are Brian Eno (composer of the now classic Music for Airports)
and Gustav Holst (composer of the true classic "The Planets".)

8) Affiliate(s) of the Month

With the longest night of the year approaching, why not have your computer screen glowing through
the twilight hours (and during the day for that matter!) with ever changing mandalas from
LightSOURCE. Mika's genius for making exquisite screen savers, CDROMs and DVDs of sacred
imagery is evident in every one of the LightSOURCE offerings, including ... dare I say :-)
... in the GeometryCode screensaver (and eBooklet, don't forget the eBooklet!)

As a reminder, the eBooklet is a sampler of the ideas from the forthcoming GeometryCode book

9) Quote(s) of the Month

“When our ego-self resists What Is it is defending itself against Reality. It does this at serious
cost to our peace of mind because in its resistance it tells us that life is wrong. And if that
message is repeated often enough, we lose trust in life, in others, and in ourselves."
- from page 42 of "Take Me To Truth: Undoing the Ego" by Nouk Sanchez and Tomas Vieira

10) Image(s) of the Month - Venus And Mars Per Martineau
This pattern is similar to hundreds of patterns found in SGDS and, like all in this series, is available from zazzle in
apparel (many different sizes, styles and colors), greeting and note cards, framed and unframed prints/posters.

11) 2009 (now annual) multimedia CONTEST!

I've decided to make the Sacred Geometry Multimedia Contest an annual event, so you NOW have
until Dec. 31, 2009 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! :-)

Thanks again for your patience during our move! The intent is to resume more frequent (e.g. monthly)
bulletins! :-)
