Eight Video Lessons with Tiffani Gyatso

Recordings are available for viewing for one year from the date of purchase

From a honeycomb to the bud of a flower to the neural network of the brain, all forms of life are composed of intricate patterns underlined by a basic matrix. Everything in the universe is connected. Through Sacred Geometry we can trace patterns of Creation and by contemplating it we can relax our sense of unity in the perfection of chaos and order.

Sacred Geometry is a vision - by understanding life through all of its creation, we realize that sacredness is all around us, from the new formation of a life cell to the decomposing organic bodies. Drawing geometry aligns our mental function, our emotional hearts and the energy of action to the purpose of opening to that sacred space, beauty and serenity.

 In Across the Silk Road we will learn the principles of geometric construction and how to combine repeating motifs to create a beautiful tessellation as it is done with big panels and tiles. In each of our eight meetings we will be guided step by step through the process of creating the mandala on a blank paper, through the process of coloring in vivid colors. 

All mandalas are inspired by the deep wisdom and vision of the Middle Eastern traditions, which is elaborated in its architecture and various expressions of art from Morocco all the way to India.
