Speaker Bio & Workshop Description
Scott Olsen, Ph.D., is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy and Religion at the College of Central Florida, and author of the award winning The Golden Section: Nature‚Äôs Greatest Secret, and the soon to be published Divine Proportion.¬† A life-long student of the Ancient Wisdom, he has studied under physicist David Bohm, world religion expert Huston Smith, sacred geometers Keith Critchlow & John Michell, and esotericist Douglas Baker. A member of the Theosophical Society in America, Scott lectures widely on the Perennial Philosophy (in both its ancient and modern forms) with special emphasis on the Divine Proportion and transformative states of consciousness.
Back by popular demand Dr. Scott Olsen will be concentrating on the underlying principles and practical application of Sacred Geometry in one‚Äôs everyday experience. With a close eye on the foundation and future of the Ancient Wisdom.
As a group we will examine the sacred geometric structures underlying the Cosmos and Nature, and their transformative impact on our present worldview or paradigm.¬† Particular attention will be placed on developing a practice in which one learns to embody the harmonies that surround us and that we can consciously construct.¬† Participants will resonate and attune with the sacred ratios and proportions of Nature by doing two-dimensional drawings and three-dimensional geometric constructions.
These hands-on constructions will be combined with a stimulating presentation of how sacred number infuses the solar system, plants, animals, and the sciences.¬† We will see how the same underlying numbers that control the flora and fauna are at work in the mathematics and aesthetics of our own bodies, and the cosmos. Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of creation and the genesis of all form, it is the modern bridge between science, physics and spirituality. It has always been used in the construction of religious structures such as churches, temples, mosques and sacred art.
