Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of the universe and is manifested in every aspect of our lives on many different levels. It touches our senses through architectural design, mandalas, music, flowers and plants, animals and insects, crystals, stars and galaxies, the sun and the moon. It is also discernable in the microcosm of cells and molecules, DNA strands, atomic structure. It speaks of a holographic universe where all is interconnected in a multidimensional reality. It is concerned with the structure of life and the essential harmony and balance of a functioning universe. It speaks of the human energy field and systems and models of the functioning of our subtle bodies. It speaks of infinity and of creation. It speaks of light as the activating force of structures and forms, including the physical human body.

The word ‘Geo-metry‘ comes from the Greek words Geos meaning ‘Earth’ and Metro meaning ‘To measure‘, which together literally translate as ‘Measuring of the earth’ or ‘Earthly measurements’, an art which was traditionally restricted to the priest-hood. Sacred Geometry has been the concern of humankind since the beginnings of time and is the endeavor of trying to understand the patterns, cycles, structures and forms of life to celebrate and live in harmony with the spirit. From the Megaliths and Stone Circles of pre-historic sites to the Egyptian, Sumerian, Indian, Chinese, Inca and Maya civilizations, these traces of sacred geometry have remained with us until the present day. It was the Greeks who worked out the basic principles of geometry, with a revival in Europe during the Renaissance period. Its study has continued right up to modern day quantum physicists and researchers.

With the development of sophisticated technological instruments, particularly in recent decades, our ability to measure the universe has been extended far beyond our physical senses to what is invisible to the naked eye, both on the macroscopic level of stars and galaxies but also on the microscopic level of cells, atoms and particles. It is sacred in that it brings us into contact with a spiritual awareness and what could be called unity consciousness – that we are the central point of the universe, an integral moving part of it and that we are capable of creating in harmony with its universal laws.
