four shapes that look like commas arranged in a circle

In Focus Sacred Geometry: Your Personal Guide

by Bernice Cockram Author

Sacred geometry has been around for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks discovered the ways in which certain shapes, angles, and numbers appeared in the natural world, whether in the shell of a snail, or in the smoothness of a river stone eroded by water. These shapes, angles, and numbers also appear in religious contexts, including mosques, synagogues, churches, Buddhist temples and more, and represent a mode in which humanity has tried to understand the way that the divine or transcendent shows up in our material, everyday existence. In this book you will learn how to interpret the sacred symbolism behind different shapes, calculate the numbers used in sacred geometry, apply the golden ratio and the Fibonacci sequence to different found objects in the world around you, and translate symbolic and geometrical letters and alphabets. Author Bernice Cockram has provided a comprehensive introduction to this ancient field of study, and you too can begin to appreciate the sacred in the shapes you encounter every day.
