Product Description
Geometry is one of a group of special sciences - Number, Music and Cosmology are the others - found identically in nearly every culture on earth. In this small volume, Miranda Lundy presents a unique introduction to this most ancient and timeless of universal sciences. Sacred Geometry demonstrates what happens to space in two dimensions - a subject last flowering in the art, science and architecture of the Renaissance and seen in the designs of Stonehenge, mosque decorations and church windows. With exquisite hand-drawn images throughout showing the relationship between shapes, the patterns of coin circles, and the definition of the golden section, it will forever alter the way in which you look at a triangle, hexagon, arch, or spiral.

Small Books, Big IdeasHistorically, in all known cultures on Earth, wise men and women studied the four great unchanging liberal arts -numbers, music, geometry and cosmology-and used them to inform the practical and decorative arts like medicine, pottery, agriculture and building. At one time, the metaphysical fields of the liberal arts were considered utterly universal, even placed above physics and religion. Today no one knows them.

Walker & Company is proud to launch Wooden Books, a collectable series of concise books offering simple introductions to timeless sciences and vanishing arts.

Attractively simple in their appearance yet extremely informative in content, these unusual books are the perfect gift solution for all ages and occasions. The expanding title range is highly collectable and ensures continuing interest. In addition, the books are non-gloss and non-color, appealing to a greener book-buying public.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun, basic, no knowledge needed
This is a small but fun book - no mathematical knowledge needed, somefun geometric figures to draw using just a ruler and compass (and if you don't have an urge to draw some figures with a ruler and compass, I'm not sure why you're looking at this book!).

One curious line struck me (p. 46 ): "Everything is made of light, all matter is, ...". I don't think she should confuse people with her physics, since I don't know what universe she's talking about here. The rest of the book seems accurate -I wish she'd stuck to math a little more and mysticism a little less, but the book does have "sacred" in the title, so I can't really complain.It was interesting enough that I might look for more books in this series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sacred Geometry
As an Art Teacher, I found this a great book for breaking down the somewhat complicated subject of Sacred Geometry.Get a ruler a protractor and follow the author's instructions and what was once difficult will become much easier to understand and practice.You will need a little background of basic geometry to get started but the effort is well worth it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fast start
This is the book that you want to read if you want to get to know the basics in a fast way. Well written and nice presentation. Well worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to Sacred Geometry principles.
This book will appeal to students of many esoteric traditions as an introduction or review of sacred geometry principles. It is written for the layman and the pictures help to explain the text. A nice, short book which can be read in one evening over a cup of tea.

4-0 out of 5 stars easily describes the symbolism in common shapes and patterns
Ever since reading "Sacred Geometry" I am much more aware of the shapes that surround us in our everyday life. This was a concise, compact book that easily describes the symbolism in common shapes and patterns. I only wish it had more information.

5-0 out of 5 stars well written - good examples.
this book has a good balance of the practical and the metaphysical for someone looking to understand the inner workings of geometries in more detail.it is the most comprehensive of the books i have found on the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Text Book of Secret Geometry Proofs ("One" not used in schools)
This is an amazing book.This book may appear to be a small book but it is not.Yes it is small physically but spiritually, it is a very condensed text book.The author takes you on a journey of sacred geometry.Reading thru the text is relatively easy but it is time consuming to go thru the proofs.....but well worth the time, effort and work.The author goes back in time to a state of existence when the concept of zero meant literally nothing; when the first number was "One".One meant and still means "Unity".The author provokes the thought of what would our perception of the world be today if the concept of "zero" did not exist?Does it really exist or have we blindly accepted everything that we were taught by those that were here before us?

"The notion of zero also had its effect on our psychological conceptualizations.Ideas such as the finality of death and the fear of it, the separation of heaven and earth, the whole range of existential philosophies based on the despair and absurdity of a world followed by non-being, all owe much to the notion of zero."

The author recommends that you recreate the proofs thru his process of instruction of actually drawing the sacred geometric configurations.The author goes thru many geometric exercises described as workbooks of geometric configurations to prove secrets of creation or of God; following these workbooks results in experiencing creation itself.

"The primary geometric forms are considered to be the crystallizations of the creative thoughts of God, and the human hand, manipulation and constructing these forms, will learn to position itself in the essential poses of gesture-language."

"Why, it may be asked, cannot Unity simply divide into two equal parts?Why not have a proportion of one term, a:a?The answer is simply that with equality there is no difference, and without difference there is no perceptual universe..............An asymmetrical division is needed in order to create the dynamics necessary for progression and extension from the Unity."

Sacred geometry is the crystallization of music frozen in time where music represents time and sacred geometry represents space.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Book of Wisdom to Be Read Slowly
Very, very insightful intro to sacred geometry. If not familiar with this topic, I would suggest one first read the book to get your feet wet in a new way of perceiving what's around you. Then go back, re-read it slowly, and carefully do the math (which isn't difficult, really) and make the geometric constructs on graph paper like the author suggests.You have to do the exercises for it all to fully sink in, and achieve greater comprehension.This book is quietly profound. I only wish it was longer and for this talented author to get into the deeper end of the pool.Lawlor's commentary is often provocative and compelling.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Rare Resource
If you have been looking for the secrets of the Pythagorian Brotherhood, then look no futher - this is the book.Robert Lawlor takes you step by step into the realm of Hermetic Knowledge and connects it all together.

Product Description

A fascinating and inspirational look at the vital link between the hidden geometrical order of the universe, geometry in nature, and the geometry of the man-made world.

The Da Vinci Code has awakened the public to the powerful and very ancient idea that religious truths and mathematical principles are intimately intertwined. Sacred Geometry offers an accessible way of understanding how that connection is revealed in nature and the arts. Over the centuries, temple builders have relied on magic numbers to shape sacred spaces, astronomers have used geometry to calculate holy seasons, and philosophers have observed the harmony of the universe in the numerical properties of music. By showing how the discoveries of mathematics are manifested over and over again in biology and physics, and how they have inspired the greatest works of art, this illuminating study reveals the universal principles that link us to the infinite.

5-0 out of 5 stars An added layer to the Geometry you learned in school
Tight, neat and succinct chapters throughout this book show that the ancients assumed the world was a Cosmos in the sense it was ordered and could be understood.Skinner begins with arithmetic, and Pythagorean number theory, highlighting the Lambda and it's relationship between the order of the planets and the notes on a stringed instrument. Skinner continues on through Geometry as it applies to the Universe, the World, the Landscape, and Man himself.Interestingly, for example, the Yard is a function of Time as well as Length, for example.Early Temples and other constructions are shown to have a relationship to either the Zodiac, the Earth, or Man, sometimes all three simultaneously!Sadly to my knowledge, we have lost the Art of Sacred Geometry for use in our Temples, but the Work has continued on in our mundane architecture, where Skinner presents modern day examples of these principles being applied by modern architects.

Don't let this one slip by if you've developed an interest in the subject!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not useful for education
I bought this book hoping that I could use some of the connections with art in a mathematics course on Geometry.After a more careful reading, I must agree with the previous reviewer who notes the weakness of the mathematics in the book.In addition to the errors regarding irrational numbers, the author misunderstands the concept of fractal geometry and how it truly does relate to chaos theory.On page 59 the author makes the case that the two are unrelated.In fact, the Mandelbrot set, for example, is defined by the boundary between chaotic and ordered recursive behavior.It is all too clear that the author is no mathematician.I appreciate his efforts to connect Geometry to mystical human endeavors, but I wish he had co-authored with a mathematician.I cannot recommend this book for use in mathematics education.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sacred Geometry: Deciphering the Code
Skinner's foray into the fundamentals of sacred geometry lays a sound historical foundation for the mysteries yet to be discovered in other works.Skinner provides the bread crumbs that can lead the serious student down the rabbit hole of Euclid, Plato and the rest of my fellow ancient Greeks as well as the non-Greeks like Kepler, et al. For a modern take on the subject,see Bucky Fuller's friend, Keith Critchlow, and his Order in Space, as well as Robert Lawlor's take on the subject.If your interested in the actual implementation of such designs with your own square and compass (which is the real way to discover the deepest mysteries), check out the Wooden Books series (with an emphasis on the texts: Sacred Geometry, Platonic and Archimedean Solids, A Little Book of Coincidence) or just buy them all like I did.If you are feeling really adventurous and are willing to suspend your disbelief at concepts and experiences that may seem... strange to today's average human, then check out Drunvalo Melchizedek's Flower of Life (Volumes 1&2). Dru dropped some geometry gems in there, no doubt.

Also check out the Geometry Junkyard website for more geometry fun!I found that the hands down best way to grasp the relationships between all geometric forms including (but not limited to) the regular polyhedra is to find the free "Nets" online [...] Then, simply print 'em out and glue them together.Of course, if one can draft the nets with a compass oneself, even better.... but then one wouldn't be reading this review,would one?No book can compare to actually holding such shapes in your hand.

I enjoyed Stephen Skinner's work even though he was often frustratingly vague and lacked a significant depth to some of the more interesting math and geometry to be found all around in nature.However, its an all around good book... Its got a great beat & I can dance to it.

Perhaps I can even excuse Skinner's horrendous blunder on Page 9 that labeled a famous DaVinci rendering of a pentagonal dodecahedron as a "regular icosahedron." (Really Stephen, for shame)!

2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty, thought provoking, but full of errors
I was attracted to the high quality of this book and many illustrations and diagrams which aid in understanding.The book is arranged in short, readable, 2-3 page chapters per topic which can mostly be read separately as you have time.

Unfortunately, a number of errors in the text and poorly written descriptions of the diagrams actually detract from understanding the subject.This is especially true if you want to better understand the relatively simple geometry or math behind the beautiful shapes and natural patterns.The sidebar on the quadratix and custructing root rectangles are frustratingly incomplete for no apparent reason.Other reviewers have pointed out other silly mathematical errors in the book.The author gives you plenty to think about, but you'll have to look elsewhere for accurate description of the concepts.

Perhaps the author was not able to clearly explain understand some of math he didn't understand and the publishers certainly rushed the book to market without a mathematical proofreading.Maybe a second printing will correct these flaws in a book with great potential.For now, I'm glad I picked it up off the clearance rack for under $10.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book
I would have given the book more stars, unfortunately the last few sections of the book are too christian for my own tastes. The book is well written and presents the information well, but it does fall apart in the end. With all the material of sacred archeological sites, I dont know why the Author chose to stay within the scope of christian churches, when most people who pick up this book are more intrested in the true sacred. ...

Product Description
Understanding the role of sacred geometry in cosmology and human affairs

• Explains how ancient societies that grasped the timeless principles of sacred geometry were able to create flourishing societies

• Illustrates the social and spiritual values in the natural progression of number

• Contains more than 300 full-color drawings showing the interplay of number and sacred geometry

Galileo described the universe as a large book written in the language of mathematics, which can only be read by those with knowledge of its characters--triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures. The laws of geometry are not human inventions. They are found ready-made in nature and hold a truth that is the same in all times and all places and is older than the world itself.

In How the World Is Made John Michell explains how ancient societies that grasped the timeless principles of sacred geometry were able to create flourishing societies. His more than 300 full-color illustrations reveal the secret code within these geometrical figures and how they express the spiritual meanings in the key numbers of 1 through 12. For example, the number 8 and its octagon are symbols of peace and stability, the holy 7 and its seven-sided figure are connected to the world-soul. He identifies the various regular shapes and shows their constructions; their natural symbolism; their meetings, matings, and ways of breeding; and their functions within the universal order. Some are musical and structural, others relate to life and humanity. In the process of making these discoveries, Michell helps us see the world in a new light. Disparate shapes and their corresponding numbers are woven together, resolving themselves into an all-inclusive world image--that “pattern in the heavens,” as Socrates called it, “which anyone can find and establish within themselves.”

5-0 out of 5 stars Sacred Universal Order
Something ancient stirred within me the moment I saw the cover of this book. Not surprising really, since sacred geometry is a nature-made creation story that predates language, homo sapiens, or even the world itself. According to Galileo, "the `grand book' of the universe was written in the language of mathematics and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures, without which it is impossible to understand a single word of it."

What makes sacred geometry sacred, is that it connects us with the only world order "in which human nature can happily exist...the cosmological expression of ideal harmony and proportion which constituted the base behind every ancient lasting civilization."

This book is beautifully written and contains over 300 color drawings that illustrate the archetypal patterns that numbers and shapes represent, and how they illuminate social and spiritual development, both in contemporary and historical worlds.

As someone who is mathematically functional, but not sophisticated, there is perhaps more "mathematics" explained in this book than I enjoy or appreciate. But this is a personal bias and in no way reflects the quality of information, knowledge, and wisdom offered in this fascinating and compelling look at sacred universal order.

Product Description
Is there a geometric design to the universe? The ancient Greeks, Mayans, Egyptians, and others believed so, as evidenced by their use of nature's recurring mathematical patterns in architecture, music, and language. Today, this "sacred geometry" finds new expression in the creations of Dutch graphic artist Janosh, whose work has swept across Europe. With SacredGeometry, he shares the life-changing gift revealed to him in a series of meditative visions he received from an energetic intelligence he calls the Arcturians. How does it work? "The geometric forms," Janosh explains, "provide an extra dimension to our natural senses, activating our physical, emotional, and spiritual evolution." Sacred Geometry gives you all the tools you need to realize your highest aspirations, including:* 33 stunning contemplation cards, each with a hologram and its corresponding theme--plus a display easel* 100-page tracing-paper pad and pencil for a kinesthetic experience with the holograms that "imprints" their underlying messages into your consciousness* 80-page hardcover journal for deeper reflection on the qualities and goals you are working towardAlso featuring an 89-page study guide explaining the principles and practical applications of sacred geometry, and a music CD by neuropsychologist John Consemulder for relaxation and focus while contemplating Janosh's art, Sacred Geometry will assist you in the activation of your ultimate potential. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars sacred geometry
I am only beginning to learn of sacred geometry and this explains it simply. It is more for meditation and if you use it, creates thought provoking results. It also comes with a pad for tracing and that can be meditative as well. It is not appealing to all but it is fun.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Sacred Geometry Kit!
"Soon after I created the first images, I began receiving information about the significance of these holographic and geometrical visions. This information was delivered intuitively, and I was told that I was receiving it from the Arcturians--highly intelligent entities from another dimension. These entities exist in a different yet parallel frequency, and communicate with our intuitive senses rather than through written language." - From the Sacred Geometry study guide

From Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man to crop circles, nautilus shells to Egyptian pyramids, patterns involving sacred geometry permeate our world. Even sunflower seed heads, pinecones and growth patterns in trees reflect nature's fractals. The organizing principle of sacred geometry spans architecture, paintings, Sanskrit poetry, and even musical compositions.

During the Harmonic Concordance of 2003, Dutch graphic designer Janosh heard the call to meditate for worldwide peace. This was unusual, considering the artist was not at all interested in spiritual topics or meditation at the time.

Several days later, he began to have visions of transparent energies captured in three-dimensional form and began reproduce them through is art. After posting the artwork on his website, he received surprising feedback: apparently, the images were identical to crop circles...a phenomenon he'd of course heard of, but never pondered nor studied.

In the innovative Sacred Geometry kit published by Sounds True, Janosh incorporates a variety of materials designed to help individuals embody and experience the messages of sacred geometry, including a 33-card deck, a pad of 100 tracing papers, soft cover 89-page study guide, specialized 80-page hardcover journal and a pencil.

The breathtaking cards measure 6 ¼ x 4 ¼ inches, with one side showing an explosion of vibrant hues imbuing pearlescent spheres, shimmering lines, and mesmerizing spirals with kaleidoscopic wonder. The other side of the cards depicts a keyword and geometric patterns of squares, lines and circles called "energetic silver codes".

The combinations of multi-color holograms with the codes are called Keys "because they unlock potentials that already exist inside of us". Janosh calls this collection the Keys of the Arcturians.

This box set, which has an easy-open magnetic lid, also comes with a relaxing hour-long musical CD by neuropsychologist John Consemulder, as well as small portable easel for displaying a particular card for meditation or oracular insight. The 8-track CD, featuring vocals by popular Dutch DJ/MC Renske Skills, provides a wonderful backdrop for tracing the silver codes, contemplating the cards, or playing on its own.

The study guide explains four ways to use the Sacred Geometry set: as an intuitive oracle, an intentional oracle, for subliminal messages, tracing codes and self-inquiry with the Sacred Geometry journal. The hardcover journal details a fascinating and accessible process for selecting a "Key of the Week", as well as a "Support Key" and "Question of the Week".

The unique journal provides spaces to record these Keyes, as well as your weekly reflection. Arguably the most interesting part of the Sacred Geometry journal is the section delineating each day of the week where you record a reminder (something that happened that day), your feeling, and +/- to circle if your overall mood for the day (positive or negative). This helps you keep track of your week, especially in light of the Keys you've drawn or are meditating upon.

I've had great success with the Sacred Geometry kit and recommend it highly. I particularly enjoy tracing the silver keys, especially since carpal tunnel prevents me from coloring mandalas. I find tracing the keys even more relaxing and centering than coloring mandalas, and much quicker to do.

My husband is fascinated with the images from the deck, and my 9-year old son uses the easel for displaying a card when he does his homework. A "Crystal" child with a sensitive system, my son sometimes resists certain exercises during homeschooling, and his chosen cards seem have a positive affect on him.

If you're interested in sacred geometry, holograms, fractal art and tactile meditation tools, the Sacred Geometry kit from Sounds True would be perfect for yourself--as well as a gift for those you love.

The information The Cards held are singing along with Nature's Gifts ( everything around us that we see, use, eat, experience)& Time/History therefore what is given to you is insightful, withsound information.The information allows one to be aware of The Mystical depth to delve into.Thank You

3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful illustrations...
While I think the cards are very beautiful, and the descriptions are insightful, I think I was looking for a little more information related to Sacred Geometry.A little more "ummph", I guess as to the meaning behind each illustration and geometric form. Perhaps better used as a spark for meditation, but in terms of "meaning" behind sacred geometrics, I was disappointed.

Product Description
In this ground-breaking new work, Gordon Strachan explores the magnificent structure of Chartres Cathedral and its influences on the medieval master builders. Using Chartres as a starting point, Dr. Strachan shows how the origins of the Gothic style—the pointed arch—may lie in Islamic architecture. He goes on to a fascinating and detailed consideration of how a particular architectural space affects us, and how sacred geometry creates sacred space.

Beautifully illustrated in a large format, this is an inspiring and informative book for anyone interested in religious architecture and spirituality. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely superb
I visited Chartres cathedral nearly forty years ago and the effect was powerful. I reverberated for several days. And honestly certain memories of the two days I spent there are as clear as any. It was one of the first intimations that there is a spiritual or, just say, another dimension that one can actually live and breathe in.
I hope that the last sentence will alert architectural students andenthusiasts who see no difference between a High Gothic cathedral and a six story parking lot that this is not a book they will enjoy. It's for people who have been touched by this magnificent building or other deep aesthetic experience, and for them is highly recommended. It is clear, fully comprehensible and feasible. The only thing I would have left out is the part about chakras, which is interesting but was and could not be sufficiently explored to merit inclusion.

The space a great cathedral created is an artistic phenomenon never again achieved in western art, as far as I know. It is a place of palpable silence where one can have a complete immersion in peace, despite one's fellow tourists. All western prayerful spaces come from this.

No book could encompass Chartres. After all, it's not the place per se but the truth it reveals that constitutes its being, and this is for us an infinite study. But there are many new and interesting insights in this book ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction
I own other books by Gadalla and this one is of similar quality, with the exception that this is only 27 pages. With such a small book, it is impossible to cover any subject exhaustively. But, that said, Gadalla manages to provide an excellent introduction to the correlation between Sacred Geometry and Numerology. He also covers how all this fits in with what he terms "Egyptian Harmony". For further study on Egyptian Harmony, read his books "Egyptian Harmony" and "Egyptian Rhythm".

This, and Miranda Lundy's "Sacred Geometry", are good first steps on the road to understanding Sacred Geometry. For a more exhaustive study, you can then tackle Leonora Leet's "The Universal Kabbalah". Leet focuses on Sacred Geometry as it relates to the Jewish Kabbalah. Gadalla, by contrast, is of Egyptian descent and, predictably, focuses on ancient Egyptian (Kemet) influences. ... Read more

Product Description
A Magical Mystery Tour of Math History

Much of what we know as math comes to us directly from early astronomer magi who needed to be able to describe and record what they saw in the night sky. Everyone needed math: whether you were the king's court astrologer or a farmer marking the best time for planting, timekeeping and numbers really mattered. Mistake a numerical pattern of petals and you could poison yourself. Lose the rhythm of a sacred dance or the meter of a ritually told story and the intricately woven threads that hold life together were spoiled. Ignore the celestial clock of equinoxes and solstices, and you'd risk being caught short of food for the winter.

"As thoughtful as it is readable, Renna Shesso's Math for Mystics is the book I wish I had when I first started trying to make sense of the mathematics that underlie so much of modern magic and traditional occult lore. Not the least of its virtues is the way it makes magical number theory accessible even to those who think they don't like or can't handle math. It provides a first-rate introduction to a fairly neglected branch of magical lore."
-- John Michael Greer Grand Archdruid, Ancient Order of Druids in America and author of The Druidry Handbook

Renna Shesso's friendly tone, delightful "math lore," meticulous research, and clear information makes math easy to understand. This marvelous book begins with the simplest lunary and planetary math and then tackles the most enigmatic of numerical esoterica such as Platonic Solids, the Golden Section, Luna's Labyrinth, and Benjamin Franklin's favorite way to pass the time, "Magical Squares," akin to the 17th century Sudoku.

For anyone who tried to understand the Fibonacci Sequence of numbers from Dan Brown's (son of a mathematician) The DaVinci Code, this book is for you!

"In times past, math was seen as magic for its power and associations. It was even banned by authorities who thought it a threat--a power that no one else should hold. In this book, that ancient magic is relived, and the power yours."
-- Jeff Hoke, author of The Museum of Lost Wonder ... Read more

A book of trivial information for the brain that needs to be filled with numbers, formulas, and the mysteries of the universe (as we know it).Wait... if we know it, it's no longer a mystery.Not a book I would necessarily want to read again.

3-0 out of 5 stars For beginners should be added to the title
The book has some interesting ideas in it that can be found in other books on sacred geometry. As the title of this review states, it is for beginners. But be observant around the section on magic squares, there is a big error there. The same square is reproduces for each of the planets and I'm sure the author is embarresed over this. Over all an easy read with basic material.

Was the author too rushed to get this Sacred Geometry 101 essay to the printer, to proof read it first?Obviously, the author and publisher has no integrity.I usually resell some of my books on Amazon.com but not this one!I care too much about mycustomers to pawn this piece of garbage on them!

Product Description
You are the Architect of Your Own Destiny

Expand your awareness of the universal patterns that shape your life with the Sacred Geometry Oracle. Now, for the first time, you can use this ancient wisdom as a tool for meditation, divination, and self-exploration.

When we get to the point, run around in circles, or go off on a tangent, we're already interpreting our lives in geometrical terms. The same sort of awareness can be turned to the subtle and communicative designs of sacred geometry, making them into symbols that serve as a bridge between our intuitive awareness and the world of our experience.

This Oracle includes:

·Thirty-three cards, each bearing an important diagram from the lore of traditional sacred geometry
·An illustrated guidebook that presents the meaning of each card, how to cast and interpret readings, and meditation suggestions
·Step-by-step exercises for constructing traditional geometric forms and patterns (with the help of your own geometer's tools: compass, straightedge, pencil, and paper), and tool-storing space in the kit box

3-0 out of 5 stars sacred geometry divination
I am glad someone has finally produced a set of cards with the book for sacred geometry.I especially liked the way both sides of the energy field are addressed as in positive and reversed.However I had hoped for images that were noticeably missing like the flower of life, tree of life, a 9 pointed star.I felt that certain common sacred images should reasonably be expected on a set of sacred geometry.

4-0 out of 5 stars What Your Geometry Teacher Should Have Told You
I remember Geometry as being the second most boring class in high school, Algebra being the worst. I got this oracle because I liked the look of the cards. Not pretty pictures of kings and queens and knights, like a standard tarot deck, but simple geometric forms that kind of glow and reach out to you. The exercises in the enclosed book are simple to do and put me in the mindset of a ancient geometer. With a few basic tools--pencils, straight edge, etc., you can draw all the forms illustrated on these cards. I'm sure you can go deeper into this subject, but for a novice like me, this wasgreat beginning. As for being an oracle, I am not into divination and do not use it as such, so you're on your own as far as that goes. My main gripes are that the box it came in started coming apart on day one, and I had to find another box so I wouldn't lose my cards. I also think that the book was missing a page. This book-card set is not like a tarot deck, but is for those who like a hands-on form of "yoga."If you are into yantras or mandalas, you might give this a try.

My advise is, don't buy this deck.There are better ones on the market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Heavenly Inspired
I highly recommend this Sacred Geometry Oracle. The cards are fantastic and the companion book helps understand how each symbol may significant to you. This book can help guide you if you are a begineer, regular practioner or advanced.

In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. These inevitably follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form and its vibrational resonances. They are also symbolic of the underlying metaphysical principle of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. It is this principle of oneness underlying all geometry that permeates the architecture of all form in its myriad diversity. This principle of interconnectedness, inseparability and union provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a blueprint for the mind to the sacred foundation of all things created.

Product Description
An in-depth look at the role of number as a bridge between Heaven and Earth

• Reveals the numerical code by which the ancients maintained high standards of art and culture

• Sets out the alchemical formulas for the fusion of elements and the numerical origins of various sacred names and numbers

• Describes the rediscovery of knowledge associated with the Holy Grail, through which the influence of the Heavenly Order is made active on Earth

The priests of ancient Egypt preserved a geometrical canon, a numerical code of harmonies and proportions, that they applied to music, art, statecraft, and all the institutions of their civilization. Plato, an initiate in the Egyptian mysteries, said it was the instrument by which the ancients maintained high, principled standards of civilization and culture over thousands of years.

In The Dimensions of Paradise, John Michell describes the results of a lifetime’s research, demonstrating how the same numerical code underlies sacred structures from ancient times to the Christian era. In the measurements of Stonehenge, the foundation plan of Glastonbury, Plato’s ideal city, and the Heavenly City of the New Jerusalem described in the vision of Saint John lie the science and cosmology on which the ancient world order was founded. The central revelation of this book is a structure of geometry and number representing the essential order of the heavens and functioning as a map of paradise. ... Read more

Product Description
The Sacred Geometry of Washington, D.C. shows how a system of number and geometric proportion, employed in the temples and cities of many of the great civilizations of the past, is present in the original design of the United States capital. In 1791, as the immense new Federal City took shape upon the landscape, it had to define and balance the powers of the People, the States, the Judiciary, the Legislature and the President. The architect had to give symbolic form to a new democratic republic. But, over the centuries, imbalances crept into this plan. Nicholas Mann describes this story in fascinating detail and asks: if the symbolism of the capital city is intended to be a true expression of America’s heart, its innermost values, what can be done to restore the balance and integrity of its original, visionary principles? ...

Product Description

Between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries Japan was totally isolated from the West by imperial decree. During that time, a unique brand of homegrown mathematics flourished, one that was completely uninfluenced by developments in Western mathematics. People from all walks of life--samurai, farmers, and merchants--inscribed a wide variety of geometry problems on wooden tablets called sangaku and hung them in Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines throughout Japan. Sacred Mathematics is the first book published in the West to fully examine this tantalizing--and incredibly beautiful--mathematical tradition.

Fukagawa Hidetoshi and Tony Rothman present for the first time in English excerpts from the travel diary of a nineteenth-century Japanese mathematician, Yamaguchi Kanzan, who journeyed on foot throughout Japan to collect temple geometry problems. The authors set this fascinating travel narrative--and almost everything else that is known about temple geometry--within the broader cultural and historical context of the period. They explain the sacred and devotional aspects of sangaku, and reveal how Japanese folk mathematicians discovered many well-known theorems independently of mathematicians in the West--and in some cases much earlier. The book is generously illustrated with photographs of the tablets and stunning artwork of the period. Then there are the geometry problems themselves, nearly two hundred of them, fully illustrated and ranging from the utterly simple to the virtually impossible. Solutions for most are provided.

A unique book in every respect, Sacred Mathematics demonstrates how mathematical thinking can vary by culture yet transcend cultural and geographic boundaries.

4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book with just one minor thing missing
It's a beautiful book, interesting and lovely. I enjoy mathematical problems and I enjoy studying Japanese culture. This book satisfies both my interests!

There is just one minor thing that's missing - the Japanese names are written entirely in Romanji. When I first started reading the book I kept wondering what is "sangaku" in Kanji. Most of my Japanese friends have not even heard of it. After much searching, I discovered the kanji for sangaku is ZZŠz, or mathematics tablets. The same romanji, "sangaku", could also have been these two kanji, ZZŠw, study of mathematics.

I hope the next edition of this book would include kanjis or at list an index of the kanji, it makes life easier for students of Japanese.

Bottom line is, this is an excellent book, and anyone interested in Japanese culture would be interested in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Like pirahnas on a hapless animal
I have been using a number of the Sangakus from Sacred Geometry in my High School Pre-Calculus classes to get things rolling at the start of the class. The kids are loving them! Watchingthe kids last class get the problem and go to work on it reminded me of watching piranha's go after a hapless animal-- maybe a bit less graphic. The problems are just great-- they really hook the kids, really get them trying stuff, and they do a fantastic job of building up and connecting their skills. Of course I am having a great time with them too!

Further, the book is just a pleasure to read. Everything about it-- prose, graphics, mathematics, quality of production-- is just top notch.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
The last (for the moment) title of Fukagawa&Rothman is really excellent. Not only the printing is superb, but the mathematical content is also outstanding. Strongly recomended to every lover of geometry...

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Brilliant One
I am always interested in what Tony Rothman has to say. He is the real deal, teaches physics at Princeton, Harvard, etc., who comes up with revolutionary insights you just can't find anywhere else. SACRED MATHEMATICS is a revelation and a tremendous challenge, another brilliant one in this writer's repertoire.

I began my Rothman studies after reading INSTANT PHYSICS, which pretty much brought me up to speed in what had always intrigued yet baffled me. Then I was amazed with his majestic DOUBT AND CERTAINTY followed by the jaw-dropping, myth-busting EVERYTHING'S RELATIVE. I couldn't get enough so I started backtracking and discovered the Pulitzer Prize nominated A PHYSICIST ON MADISON AVENUE and SCIENCE A LA MODE, where he maybe first established his continual theme of treating science with the skeptical irreverence it often deserves. In between, I discovered articles in SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, DISCOVER, ISAAC ASIMOV'S SCIENCE FICTION MAGAZINE and THE NEW REPUBLIC, not to mention some weighty scientific papers and reports. Finally, I found his science fiction novel, THE WORLD IS ROUND, with which the movie industry might finally have the tools to do justice.

Tony Rothman is a great and gifted writer and SACRED MATHEMATICS is a beautifully illustrated book of art, religion, history and geometry. I see from his web site that a novel about The Great Seige of Malta is next. I anxiously anticipate that and hope that both APOCHRYPHA and the plays there mentioned will soon be published.

I strongly recommend SACRED MATHEMATICS and, in fact, everything written by Tony Rothman to anyone, who in a world too often full of nonsense and lies, cherishes instead reality and truth. Rothman's voice is beautiful and unique.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Mathematics
For anyone who truly loves mathematics, this book is a must have.
Simply put, the book tells the story of sangaku, geometry problems which were painted in color on wooden tablets and displayed at Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines throughout Japan. Most of the sangaku were composed by people from all walks of life-priests, farmers, children women, samurai, etc.-between 1600 and 1900. Approximately 900 of the old tablets have survived and even today one is occasionally found at an abandoned temple/shrine. Tony Rothman has assisted Mr. Fukagawa Hidetoshi, a retired Japanese high school teacher, who is one of the world's foremost experts in sangaku, in producing a beautiful book. Various chapters discuss Japan and temple geometry, the Chinese foundation of mathematics, Japanese mathematics and mathematicians of the Edo period. In addition, the book contains over 200 sangaku problems ranging from very elementary to extremely difficult. The book also contains extensive excerpts from the diary of Yamaguchi Kanzan, a Japanese mathematician, who treked through Japan during the 1800s collecting sangaku problems. Finally, there are chapters on East and West, Japanese attempts to handle differentiation and integration, and inversion. The book contains numerous diagrams which accompany the problems and there are 16 color plates. In summary, this book captures a beautiful form of vanished mathematics which was artistic/religious in nature. Mr. Fukagawa Hidetoshi and Mr. Rothman are to be congratulated for producing a superb book which tells the story of this vanished mathematical/religious art form. Buy your copy today. This book contains enough history, mathematics, art, and religion to keep one's intellect perplexed for years. ... Read more

Product Description
“Anything dead tends to remain within the three ordinary dimensions, while anything living constantly transcends them” (Rudolf Steiner).

The point, line, plane and solid objects represent the first three dimensions, but a kind of reversal of space is involved in the ascent to a fourth dimension. Steiner leads us to the brink of this new perspective—as nearly as it can be done with words, diagrams, analogies, and examples of many kinds. In doing so, he continues his life-long project of demonstrating that our objective, everyday thinking is the lowest rung of a ladder that reaches up to literally infinite heights.

The talks in this series and the selections from the question-and-answer sessions on many mathematical topics over the years are translated into English for the first time in The Fourth Dimension. They bring us to tantalizing new horizons of awareness where Steiner hoped to lead his listeners:

“Part of the charm of the fourth dimension is that it is a geometrical concept that interests popular culture as much as it does mathematicians. In both its popular and scientific applications, the fourth dimension has had both gnostic and agnostic exponents” (from the Introduction). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Familiarity with Steiner is a pre-requisite
I wholeheartedly recommend "The Fourth Dimension: Sacred Geometry, Alchemy, and Mathematics" to everyone familiar with the work of Rudolf Steiner. Regrettably, the previous reviewer had not studied the basic Steinerian concepts thoroughly enough to comprehend much of the rich and meaningful material in "The Fourth Dimension".First reading some of Rudolf Steiner's basic Anthroposophical books ("Knowledge of the Higher Worlds", "An Outline of Occult Science", "The Philosophy of Freedom", "Theosophy", "A Road to Self Knowledge", "Anthroposophical Leading Thoughts") will help the reader more fully understand his lectures.Keep in mind that the lectures were never intended to be published and read by the general public.Many books are available to read for free online at the Rudolf Steiner Archive (rsarchive.org).

2-0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfying
I suppose at the time this book was written, 100 years ago, that Steiners worlds seemed revelatory.But for anyone with exposure to metaphysical concepts like higher dimensions this book does not deliver.

This book was not written by Steiner but is a collection of his lectures on the subject of The Fourth Dimension.And the publishers choice of including the words sacred geometry and alchemy is somewhat misleading.Steiner is a controversial figure because much of what he talked about is hard to follow. In this book Steiner spends many lectures in which a great deal of the current lecture/chapter repeats the previous content.

In this book much of what he talks about does not agree with my own intuitive perceptions of higher realms or with what I have heard from others experiences.For instance, Steiner followed a train of thought that said that in order to go past any dimension, especially the third, that you need a kind of dimensional mirror to shortcut the limitations of the current dimension and add the next dimension. And in the case of getting past the the third dimension this lead Steiner to state that numbers in the fourth dimension (Astral realm) must be read backwards.If you see the number 782 in the Astral realm that must really be the number 287.Now keep in mind that while explaining all of his ideas about the fourth dimension Steiner never really tells you how to perceive it.There are no practices or techniques to use.Later in the book Steiner seems to either clarify or reverse himself when he says that the fourth dimension is time, something most people in metaphysics would be more likely to agree with rather than reversed numbers.

Steiner does go on to imply that animals seen outside of you in the Astral realm are really symbolic or occult representations of your internal state.This much agrees with shamanic views of power animals or spirit helpers.

The majority of the book is a series of question and answer topics.This area covers a wide range and is not organized into topics so it's a bit like a fishing expedition.

For me this was the second Stiener book I have tried to read the first being Egyptian Myths and Mysteries.While the Egyptian book had much more information or facts I was still left thinking 'so what' or 'how can that be proven' to many things Steiner claimed. I also have in my stack of books Biodynamics by Steiner and from flipping through that book it seems that will be a more meaningful book to me as I have an interest in sustainable agriculture and the spiritual forces involved.

From what I can tell thus far Steiner was greatly influenced by Goethe.So any future attempts I make into Steiner land will include either the book(s) Stiener has written about Geothe or other books by/about Goethe.

Finally, from my overall experience of Steiner, I believe he was a genuine man, sort of a prophet of his time.But as a civilzation I believe much of what he has said we have reached at least by a great deal of the metaphysical community consciously and by many of more of us unconsciously.So for most of my metaphysical peers many of the Steiner books will be difficult reading seemingly sparse of usefull information.

My final concern is that when people progress along the spiritual path there is no single version of the reality, short of the ultimate truth, that people all journey with.Though advanced souls may experience the astral plane they each do so from a unique viewpoint.So when people take Steiners views and make something like the Waldorf educational system, I take pause with some concern.I believe that there is some value in Waldorf, but like the body of Steiners works I have read thus far, I have to say that some of what I hear sounds squirrely.

So to my fellow spiritual seekers I say that I have realized that I am lookiing for spiritual nuggets to add to my understanding, not for someone to follow or model my walk on.And in the case of Steiner the nuggets in his field seems to be sparse. Be well.

P.S. If you were looking for an introduction to Sacred Geometry, the Lawlor book is at least four dimensions better. ... Read more

* A 64-card deck with original artwork by nationally recognized visual artist Francene Hart.

* Allows readers to balance their energy fields and access higher levels of consciousness.

* Comprehensive guide includes spreads, card explanations, and reflective insights from a wide variety of sacred traditions.

Sacred geometry is the key that unlocks all of the world's art, science, and architecture. Called the language of light, its images and shapes are embedded in DNA, mandalas, pyramids, crystals, atoms, and hieroglyphs. Anyone who has ever gazed at a spider's web, meditated on a mandala or yantra, visited a pyramid, walked a labyrinth, or peered through a microscope has felt the effects of sacred geometry. Now the Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck introduces an entirely new way for you to gain access to this wisdom and unlock its power.

With splendid use of the full color spectrum and gentle natural forms, artist Francine Hart has created potent, compelling images accessible to both advanced and novice students of divination. The accompanying text includes a detailed interpretation of each card, sample spreads, and an excellent introduction to the science of sacred geometry. Working with these images balances human energy fields, allowing readers to access higher levels of consciousness, gain insight into life's challenges, and restore their connection to the world. ...

"Often termed the `language of light', Sacred Geometry has the ability to balance human energy fields and contains a complex informational system that can be used to access healing and growth in many dimensions." -Francene Hart

When you have constructed a mandala, walked through a labyrinth, visited a pyramid, beheld a medicine wheel or engaged in a spiral dance, you have felt the effects of Sacred Geometry. According to artist and author Francene Hart, Sacred Geometry in an ancient science and a sacred language-a study of shape and form, wave and vibration, microcosm and macrocosm. It is geometric archetypal patterns that gather and repeat, echoing the oneness of All That Is.

Sacred Geometry also serves as a bridge between the left and right brain, the Yang and the Yin. This "blueprint for all creation" is a complex informational system-a vehicle to transcend duality consciousness, move beyond third-dimensional reality, balance human energy fields, and evolve consciously.

After years of studying the wisdom of ancient mystery schools and secret societies-as well as receiving and heeding intuitive Guidance-artist Francene Hart created the Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck as a means for accessing the holographic view of past, present and future. Her intent is for individuals to find their personal place in this holographic universe and gain insights that are outside the scope of the rational Western model.

The Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck contains 64 cards, each with a specific theme. The expression of this "language of light" is through shamanic-like illustrations, familiar geometric patterns, spiritual symbols, and simple shapes. Some of the cards and themes in this deck:

* Vesica Piscis - Birth Portal
* Sri Yantra - Meditation
* Square - Earth, Male
* Medicine Wheel - Connection to Nature
* DNA - Conscious Evolution
* Leonardo's Vitruvious Man - Divinity of Humankind
* Dodecahedron - Divine Thought
* Earth Grid - Fellowship
* Kabbalah - Tree of Life
* Steam Cave - Elemental Forces

This boxed set also includes a 143-page companion book, which features seven spreads-described at length-and a comprehensive treatment of each card in both the upright and reversed position. Some cards are symmetrical and harmonious, and thus mean the same thing upright and reversed.

Every time I've used the Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck, I have found it to be amazingly insightful and accurate-regardless if I used the cards in a complex spread or just for a one card meditation. In my experience with Cartomancy, I have found that when one individual creates both the images and divinatory meanings of an oracle or tarot deck, it somehow carries more intuitive "weight". Perhaps because the years of study and wisdom are infused into the whole of the oracle-both art and meaning-this combination really packs a wallop in terms of delivering clear, powerful Guidance. The Sacred Geometry Deck is no exception.

If you enjoy exploring the realm of Sacred Geometry and are seeking integration, balance, and increased awareness, this deck and book will be a wonderful companion on your journey to conscious growth and personal empowerment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Creative
This is a beautiful deck featuring the artwork of Francene Hart at http://www.francenehart.com.

29 cards out of this deck of 64 are beautiful pieces of artwork that incorporate sacred geometry. I have to admit to being biased already as I am a fan of the artist, but these cards just took my breath away. The rest of the cards in the deck are simple drawings of sacred geometry, and even though they don't have the detail and artistry of the other cards, they are elegant and effective.

The book is filled with information and I believe anyone interested in the field of sacred geometry would find it highly enjoyable.And as it is not a tarot deck, but an oracle deck, it is wonderful for either the beginning or advanced reader. I would highly recommend the Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck to anyone interested in working with a powerful tool of personal transformation.

2-0 out of 5 stars Functional
This book has very good directions on how to draw mandalas.If someone was desiring a good geometrical foundation from which to begin practicing drawing mandalas, this would be a good source.It contains very little of the mystical role mandalas can have for people.In that regard, I found it disappointing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous teaching
This book is just wonderful.I bought it a few weeks ago and am finding that the instructions are clear, without excess wordiness.If you want a book on how to make this type of mandala, this is a terrific one.She doesn't expound on spirituality or get side-tracked in any way.This is a very, very good how-to book.I am very glad I bought this book and am going to buy more for family members.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great place to start.
I am currently finishing my first mandala from this book. The instructions are very clear. This is a great starter book for mandala drawing if you like geometric, structured designs. If you like mandalas that have more of a flowing look to them with organic and biomorphic shapes you probably won't like this book. I personally like both styles so I've found this book enjoyable. Also, reading the author's biography is inspiring. Ms. Bartfeld seems like a person with lots of kindness in her and one can feel that in her writing and presentation. For content, this book deserves five stars. For physical presentation I had to rate it four stars. The printers who printed the book for Ms. Bartfeld were very unprofessional. They made corrections to printed text by simply slapping labels with the correct text over the misprints and errors. This method is sloppy looking and amateurish. My advice to you, Ms. Bartfeld, is to find yourself a different printing company. Your book is delightful and deserves better treatment. ... Read more
