A SUMMARY
Golden ratio, golden mean, divine proportion, phi, 1:1.618..., 'precious jewel', golden section, divine cut - and the list goes on. This unique ratio (logos) has intrigued and inspired the world's greatest minds. We see it embodied in the art and architecture of the ancients. It permeates the fruits of the world's manifold sacred/cultural traditions; the majority of the fruits that we eat also embody a fivefold quality! Euclid (325 - 265 BC) first defines what seems to have been hitherto a revered sacred secret occasionally alluded to within the oral tradition. It is one of the fundamental patterns of creation and informs the cosmos at every level of being. It hovers around the famous Fibonacci sequence (1.1.2.3.5.8.13.21.34.55...) and phyllotaxis patterns. Da Vinci and Durers' meticulous studies of human proportions reveal an abundance of phi forms. The research of two contemporary astronomers/cosmologists, John Martineau (UK) and Hartmut Warm (GER), reveal and confirm an array of golden ratio relationships within our Solar System and beyond! The five 'Platonic Solids' reverberate with it's presence ... SacredArtofGeometry's (SAOG Studios) Golden Ratio, introductory one-day course, is primarily practical i.e. this 'divine ratio' is experienced through the doing of it as we make, model, and weave forms and patterns that sing with 'golden meaning'! Each activity is presented in a gently guided, step-by-step manner; the course is thus suitable for those with no prior geometry/mathematical experience and also those more familiar with the subject. ------------------------------------------------------- Participants requiring accommodation/meals may contact Emerson College directly for details and availability: Telephone: +44 (0)1342 822238 Web: http://www.emerson.org.uk/sacred-geometry Alternatively, for a list of local B&B/Hotel options and a wide range of Airbnb options are also available locally, please contact the mentor using the purple 'Contact Mentor' button.
