Description

With In Focus Sacred Geometry, learn the fascinating history behind this ancient tradition as well as how to decipher the geometrical symbols, formulas, and patterns based on mathematical patterns.

This accessible and beautifully designed guide to sacred geometry includes an 18 × 24–inch wall chart of the main sacred geometrical shapes and their unique, innate arrangements.

People have searched for the meaning behind mathematical patterns for thousands of years. At its core, sacred geometry seeks to find the universal patterns that are found and applied to the objects surrounding us, such as the designs found in temples, churches, mosques, monuments, art, architecture, and nature.

Learn the fundamental principles behind:
 
  • Interpreting the sacred symbolism and principles behind shapes
  • Calculating numbers used in sacred geometry
  • Applying the golden ratio and Fibonacci sequence to objects
  • Translating symbolic and geometrical letters and alphabets

The In Focus series applies a modern approach to teaching the classic body, mind, and spirit subjects. Authored by experts in their respective fields, these beginner’s guides feature smartly designed visual material that clearly illustrates key topics within each subject. As a bonus, each book includes reference cards or a poster, held in an envelope inside the back cover, that give you a quick, go-to guide containing the most important information on the subject.
With In Focus Sacred Geometry, learn the fascinating history behind this ancient tradition as well as how to decipher the geometrical symbols, formulas, and patterns based on mathematical patterns.

This book is organized and aesthetically pleasing. It contains quite a bit of information but makes the factual material digestible by breaking up larger chunks of text with charts and tip boxes. One thing that stuck out to me while reading this text was the way the author takes the sacred geometry concepts and makes them applicable by offering an exercise or meditation so the whole book isn't just heavy in theory and history and fact. I don't see myself making this a classroom title, but I could see myself working it into a library display in our school library due to the narrow scope of the material.

I love books like this that are concise but touch on a myriad of topics. Sacred Geometry has always been interesting to me, but I didn't know much about it. This was a great overview and allowed me to identify points that I wanted to further my interest. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who's interested in dipping their tow into Sacred Geometry.

Excellent reference guide on the topic of sacred geometry. Practitioners and believers will likely use this started text less than individuals new to the field, but it is a robust introduction and could serve as a reference tool for many types of readers. Authors and writers who focus on science fiction and fantasy may also want to buy a copy as a tool for future projects/writings.
