Sacred Geometry

 

Sacred Geometry is an art of memory which employs geometric forms as symbols for the organisation of theosophy or divine wisdom.

Although there are many examples of sacred geometry for the purpose of readings I tend to work with the five platonic solids. These are also referred to as the regular polyhedrons or cosmic volumes.

For those of you who are interested in learning more about sacred geometry I run workshops on a regular basis.
