Sacred Geometry - The Gateway to the Heavens

With Karen L French.

11:45 - 12:45 in the Great Nave - Five key spiritual messages in one symbol – The Gateway to the Heavens

A few simple shapes combine to make the universal, powerful model called the Gateway to the Heavens. Discover the meaning and purpose of these shapes and how they mould your reality and your perception of it. No mathematics is needed to understand and experience their incredible power and discover how you can use them to enhance your experience of reality. Change the way you look at your world and your place within it.

2:30 - 3:30 in the Great Navestarts with a guided visualisation: Animal Insight
The objective of Animal Insight is to open your Eyes and Mind to intimately experience the Elements by using the Triangle. This is done from the vantage point of other sentient beings that live in these Elements to share their perspective on reality and gain some interesting insights into yourself.

Then mini-workshop:Feel the Gateway to the Heavens Within You
By assuming a few very basic, non-strenuous body positions called sacred geometry stances you can experience the dynamics of geometry within you. There are many ways these stances can be used such as to gain personal insights and for spiritual healing. In this workshop we will focus on experiencing those that are within the powerful Gateway to the Heavens model.
