Short courses and symposia in the practice and philosophy of Sacred Geometry and the arts of the Quadrivium
"The higher purpose of geometry is to participate, body, soul and spirit, in the objective universal laws that govern and cohere our universe. This activity can lead us directly to the centre of our own understanding which unifies us with the whole." Keith Critchlow (16 March 1933 – 8 April 2020)
We wish, first and foremost, to acknowledge our deep gratitude to two legends:
Keith Critchlow and
To be their students, and sometimes colleagues, is, has been, and ever will be, the greatest honour.

In August 2018 a filmed interview took place at SAOG Studios with the late Professor Keith Critchlow.
It was made to mark the 70th birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales.
It contains manifold insights pertaining to the Sacred Art of Geometry ...

Sacred Art of Geometry Studios
Founded in 2015, SAOG Studios has quickly established itself as a leading educational centre with an international reputation and following. Our focus is to realign the Arts and Soul Sciences and our connection with them to the Sacred. We invite you to join us at the alchemical melting pot that is SAOG Studios, set in the heart of the idyllic Emerson College campus and surrounded by the Ashdown Forest and High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (a stone's throw from London, Brighton and Gatwick Airport!), to experience how Sacred Geometry, the language of the 'ever-true - the eternally existent', can be a powerful means to this end.
It is a rare week/weekend that passes without Daniel Docherty (Programme co-ordinator and senior tutor), or colleague(s), offering some soul-nourishing fare, whether an exploration of the principles and practice of mandalas, patterns of the planets or islamic geometric design. You will just as likely find us diving into the wonderful world of natural pigments, paints and inks or the art and craft of labyrinths. We have been enjoying collaborative courses with our storytelling colleagues over the past couple of years and also pilgrimages to sacred sites such as Chartres, Glastonbury and Avebury ...
A number of courses have become firm favourites and they tend to feature regularly in our course calendar alongside new offerings.
We look forward to welcoming you to SAOG Studios sometime soon ...
