Sacred Geometry and Self-Empowerment: Saturday 9 August

Sacred Geometry and Self-Empowerment: Saturday 9 August

Metamorphosis – Evening Presentation by Jonathan Quintin There is a profound order to the universe. This order stands independent of chaos, space, time and even creation itself. Yet it can be mathematically verified and shown in pictures. Sacred geometry is the means in which we can engage with this order. The primary shapes, patterns and forms that emerge from the circle and sphere are encoded with the laws of creation. They are keys that can unlock our minds to more of who we are and open us to the greater whole. The presentation includes...

Sacred Geometry One Day Workshop: Sunday 7 September

Sacred Geometry One Day Workshop: Sunday 7 September

With Jonathan Quintin There is order to the universe: an exquisite order that stands independent of chaos, space and time. It exists in the form of mathematical principles and can be known to us through geometry.
