Why Sacred Geometry?

Succulents_880Sacred Geometry is the study of Sacred Proportions, using the Golden Mean and other sacred shapes.

Sacred Geometry is basically the study of proportions present in nature: flowers, shells, human body, or natural crystals, for instance.

The great cathedrals of the world, the genius of Leonardo  Divinci, the mathematical perfection of a snail’s shell are all examples of sacred geometry.  Rather than planting the vegetables in rows, they are grown in circular communities.  The orchard, for abundance, is grown in a figure eight or loop of infinity so that it trees are in perfect mathematic measurements apart from each other, yet still in community so that they will produce infinitely!

Herbal gardens are designed with the same care understanding that all of creation is in perfect order and that co-creating done on these sacred patterns produced health and abundance.

Here is a great explanation of the Labyrth by Michael Rice:

Is it true that being aware of the natural flow of energy and planting a garden in these sacred geometrical patterns can beneficially impact the fruits, vegetables, people and communities around it?

When a Feng Shui practitioner, Cheryl Leigh Gama, combined her ability to “tune-in” to nature with her love for art, music, physics, geometry and organic gardening, she followed her heart and created a Sacred Geometry Garden. The outcome was phenomenal; she produced $600 worth of food monthly from a circular garden with an 11′ diameter. (That’s only 90 square feet!) Even before optimal organic soil amendments were added, this Superfood garden grew vibrantly and when the produce was Brix tested with a refractometer for nutrient density (on a scale of 1-10), the veggies scored from 4-10.

The new book, Sacred Geometry Gardens: The Heart of Superfood Gardening, is a step by step manual for building a garden that is efficient, rich in nutrients, and is a fulfilling gardening experience. It takes you on a journey of self discovery and connectedness with our Earth. Cheryl Gama provides a hands-on/how-to presentation of practical, organic gardening methods that produce nutrient-dense “superfoods” at home on any size plot of land. It’s easy, simple and can be done with ordinary gardening tools and soil specific organic amendments. Whether you are an experienced organic gardener or a beginner, Sacred Geometry Gardens will give you the opportunity to easily build a beautiful garden with love and universal harmony.

In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. These inevitably follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form and its vibrational resonances. They are also symbolic of the underlying metaphysical principle of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. It is this principle of oneness underlying all geometry that permeates the architecture of all form in its myriad diversity. This principle of interconnectedness, inseparability and union provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a blueprint for the mind to the sacred foundation of all things created.
