Spring glimpses at SAOG Studios

The past few weeks at SAOG Studios have been full of special moments ...

not least our 5 May 2019 Weaving the Cosmos course which saw a full cohort of students weave an array of baskets, spheres and willow tatzas. The course begins with an introduction to Order in Space and the most primary of 'Creation' patterns in 2D. The crucial role played by Five and the Golden Ratio is directly experienced when participants need to bring their hexagonal weavings into the round - it makes full sense when doing it!!!

Come and experience it for yourselves ... 

Next course: Weaving the Cosmos: Sacred Geometry and Hexagonal-Weave Basketry: 14 March 2020

A further May 2019 highlight was SAOG Studios first week-long Mandalas of the World course. The constellation of course participants was itself a mandala of the world with locals and Londoners together with students from Brazil, Hawaii, California, Sth Africa and Switzerland. 

A very rich week of sharing interspersed with walks through bluebell woods and wildflower meadows!!

SAOG Studios next week-long Mandalas of the World course: 4-8 February 2020

This course has been a total joy, and it has been full of spiritual and cosmic revelation. The way Daniel teaches perfectly fits the way that I learn best. He treats the material with such reverence and poetic beauty. I feel this week has opened up a path for me, and I feel it will play an important part in my life from now on. I always felt barred from the artistic world, not feeling in any way that I possessed artistic talent but this course has given me access to an artistic passion. I only wish I had been introduced to this way of understanding and practising sacred art earlier! Thank you so much. 

John Wadsworth:

PhD research student at CCCU and author of Your Zodiac Soul: Working with the Twelve Zodiac Gateways to Create Balance, Happiness & Wholeness 

Thank you so much for the magical time spent with you and our fabulous group;  for the oh so special teachings and sharings and for this brilliant glow that surrounds the memory of our time spent together!!!

I’m dreaming geometric shapes every night and am excited to play with my new compass….
