The Sacred Geometry Diploma Course considers sacred geometry from a range of perspectives. In addition to outlining the background and basic meanings of numbers and shapes, it outlines the use of sacred geometry in the arts and architecture. Although the emphasis is on the Western tradition, the course also looks at sacred geometry in other traditions, including within Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and in traditional Chinese thought.
With the Sacred Geometry Diploma Course, you will learn the history of sacred geometry and where and how it has been applied. You’ll also learn about some of the key figures in its history.
The meanings of numbers (including the Fibonacci numbers and irrational numbers) and simple shapes are explained – giving you an understanding of the basis of the symbolism of more complex figures. You are introduced to the basic meanings of shapes early in the course, and this discussion is advanced later with more detail of the religious and spiritual significance of such shapes. Numerous examples demonstrate the use of sacred geometry in architecture and the arts.
Complex shapes such as the Flower of Life and Vesica Piscis are discussed in detail within the Sacred Geometry Diploma Course, with information given regarding their derivation, use and symbolism in different cultures. In addition, you will learn about the Platonic solids and the associated 3D shape of Metatron’s Cube.
You will read about the cycle of the planet Venus and the meanings associated with its orbital pattern and the associated image of the rose, which has been used extensively in Christianity. The Music of the Spheres, a theory that postulates that proportions in the movements of celestial bodies create a form of music, is also described.
Examples are given of how the Fibonacci numbers and golden ratio appear in the natural world and a brief explanation is given on the theories behind feng shui – the traditional Chinese art of arranging the environment to direct energy in a positive way.
The Sacred Geometry Diploma Course concludes by discussing mandalas and labyrinths and their spiritual meanings and use.
