Welcome to the Crop Circle Explorers:
All those who enter here are asked to – “Trust Yourself!”
We’ve all experienced synchronicities of one kind or another. They can be curious coincidences, being in the right place at the right time, picking-up the phone to someone we were just thinking about, or they can be a complete eclipse of consciousness – a profound meeting of the inner and outer worlds. But just what are these strange events? What do they mean and why do they seem so very attracted to to the crop circles and other so-called paranormal events?
Our culture largely dismisses synchronicity, we often set them aside, sometimes embarrassed by them. It difficult to articulate our synchronicities. That profound sense of import, connectedness and meaning that they evoke is actually very hard to convey to others. Yet, what if we could find better ways to share these meaningful connections to others, to empower ourselves and others to talk about these amazing experiences? What a force for positivity and personal and cultural empowerment that would be!
In the half-day workshops we will look at the anatomy of synchronicity; what actually happens? We will also look at the qualities of synchronicities, their differing intensities and depths.We will even consider why it is so very hard to effectively communicate our own synchronicities to others and what we might to do to improve that.
In these workshops we will dive-deeply in to one of the most ubiquitous, yet mysterious of human experiences – you’ll never look at this subject in the same way again!
If you haven’t already, please join our newsletter for first notice about bookings openings and new course programmes.
Explore more Deeply
As with all our Crop Circle Explorer courses, our Synchronicity School workshops aim to dive-deeply into our core subject matter – Synchronicity.
We will be using a blend of formal lectures and group sharing (including small break-out groups) to explore some of your own synchronicities.
The transformation of personal and human consciousness
In equal measure, we will also be giving time to looking at and sharing how these amazing occurrences impact us personally. We will look at the role of synchronicity and intuition in our lives and how we might follow our synchronicities to live a more immersive and meaningful life. Finally, as we slowly immerse ourselves in our experiences and become more attuned to them we’ll look at the way in which this phenomenon could be part of a wider and deeper transformation of human consciousness – using our own experience of them as a guide.
All of this while having fun in a tribe of like minded people!
An heartfelt invitation…
We invite you to join us on this adventure; together we will explore synchronicity – experience the magic and connectedness it embodies – co-creating a community of like minded explorers we hope to create a joyful journey of discovery out of which new insights might emerge, both for you personally and in regard to the phenomenon as a whole.

About your Hosts
Karen Alexander Karen is a long time circles researcher of over 30 years (1990-present day), who has for many years brought a thoughtful and introspective touch to researching the crop circles. A highly respected and influential speaker and writer, her work seamlessly fuses sacred art, spirituality, psychology and philosophy – the scholarly and the intuitive. Karen is perhaps best known as the writer behind the annually published Crop Circle Year Books (1999 – 2019) and Crop Circles: Signs, Wonders & Mysteries (Arcturus, 2006 & updated in 2009 & 2013). She is also known for her hand drawn images and paintings of the crop circles which are widely admired and collected. Karen has a background in counselling and psychotherapy and has facilitated and taken part in a number of groups and projects over the last 25 years looking specifically into crop circles and their connection with consciousness.
Geoff Fitzpatrick was introduced to mandalas whilst studying the pioneering work of Carl G Jung and has spent the past 15 years exploring the intersection of geometry, spirituality and psychology through these symbols. Working with mandalas has opened Geoff to the profound power geometry possesses to influence states of consciousness. The construction of sacred sand mandalas during Geoff’s Mandalanature sessions opens people to a deeper aspect of themselves by blending creativity, geometry and mindfulness in a unique and special way. In addition to his studies at Trinity College and the Milltown Institute, Geoff has trained with Dr. Stanislav Grof MD learning a psychotherapeutic technique called Holotropic Breathwork. Dr. Grof’s cartography of the psyche informs the Manalanature model entirely. Geoff is also a regular visitor to the crop circles, to experience their spaces and contemplate their geometries. Geoff combines his love of Mandalas, consciousness and the circles to form a unique view of this phenomenon.
Here’s what some of our fellow Crop Circle Explorers have had to say about our courses and workshops
Karen and Geoff hosted a wonderful deep dive into this many-layered phenomenon through an intensive geometric exploration of a single crop circle over four weeks. I found the focused drawing experience fascinating, group sharing profoundly moving, and the guided meditations stellar. I highly recommend Crop Circle Explorers – their next session is not to be missed! – Scott Onstott
This course was a perfectly balanced mix of lectures, group-sharing, Mandala work and guided meditation. Each part designed to enhance the other. I enjoyed it very much. – Peter van den Burg
Karen Alexander and Geoff Fitzpatrick present a window into crop circle research that expands possibilities and becomes personal for those who participate in their workshops. My own delight in this subject was nourished by their intimate knowledge and genuine open interest. The ability to interact with other sincerely dedicated crop circle enthusiasts was also truly valuable. It helps to know we are not alone, with each other as humans and beyond! – Marién Grace, Director-Bay Area Crop Circle Study Group
Delving into the crop circle geometry was mental therapy, encouraging calmness and focus of the mind. I found the process a meditative experience especially so when combined with Geoff’s playlist. I thoroughly enjoyed working and sharing with fellow enthusiasts from around the planet. Highly recommend this journey – Darren
It is a wonderful thing to stumble into the world of crop circles, to find admiration and awe, wonderment and zeal in these living creations made manifest in pattern adorning a field of grain. So much the more astonishing to then learn that these formations arise from, and are underpinned by, a whole canon of metaphysical structure ensconced in Number. In fact, geometry is Number in Space. I realized, after some years of feeling adrift, that my high school sophomore year geometry class had received an impoverished rendition of the subject, that we had been short-changed. My fellow students and I heard nothing about the magical qualities of number, only numbers’ secular usefulness in measurement and calculation in agriculture, commerce and war, without regard for its basis in nature. In the crop circle and sacred geometry arena, people who teach, inform, motivate and support other aspirants are few, and the best are rare. Karen Alexander and Geoff Fitzpatrick are two of them. They run a tight show that should be experienced by multitudes. Do everything you can to join them and you too shall be rewarded with spiritual enrichment. – Mark
First of all, I am so profoundly grateful for the opportunity to join the group and actually engage with the crop circle. It was a happy day when I stumbled upon the link to the course. I really appreciate the time and dedication you have given to providing a connection to these beautiful and mysterious creations. I was very excited about the drawing. Your instruction, Karen, was great. Very clear and patient! In preparation I had done a few online mandala/Islamic pattern classes because it’s been ages since I used a compass, and it was much harder than I imagined. But at some point I realized it was OK if it wasn’t perfect, and then I could enjoy it more. Geoff, I also really appreciated your cheerful presence and loving guidance. I loved your insights into the geometry of this circle. And the soundtracks were great! Listening to the other participants too was so interesting and inspiring. All in all, it was a very rich experience – Meryl
I attended Temporary Temple’s online conference in the autumn of last year and having enjoyed it very much, was enthusiastic about any future events which might be organised; I was keen to find out more when the new Crop Circle Explorers course was advertised.
All the details and information about the course were set out on the website, along with clear aims and objectives; booking and paying for the course was straightforward. Once the course commenced, communication was good and included instructions about materials for the coming week, where to find things and also prompts for our own follow up homework between sessions. Care was taken to remind participants about what to expect the following week. The course was meticulously planned and I felt supported at each step. Over the four weeks, time was allocated for presentations by the course hosts, geometry sessions, meditations and sharing / listening to the experiences of others. Karen and Geoff worked to provide a warm, welcoming and safe online space where everyone was heard with respect. The shared ideas and unique insights into the Calstone crop circle went beyond anything I might have expected. It was great to take time in this way to meet and share ideas with others who are also interested in the complexity, beauty and mystery of the crop circle phenomenon – Julie
Beloved Karen and Geoff, I just have to tell you how thrilled I was to see those perfect petals encircling the radiating design. I’ve been drawing petals freehand for 25 years without thinking about the purity of the exact and balanced form and what it lends to the mandala. I’m definitely loving this crop circle now.And I am fascinated with the process of compass and straightedge without resorting to protractor and other gizmos to figure out the measurements for the forms. Love it. And, Geoff, your enthusiasm for your Mandala Nature process is wonderful and engaging. Thank you for describing it so thoroughly and with such love. Great exploration, you two. Thank you – Ansula
I find these courses very interesting and exciting, because I feel drawn to this phenomenon of exploring crop circles and nobody else is even interested among my friends. During these courses we can talk about anything connected to the crop circles. Many people with different backgrounds can give their different points of view. The range is from scientific measuring angles, ratios, etc. to the mystical thoughts invoked when you do a journey to the heart of a particular circle. Connections have been projected to the Universe or astrologically proposed. The possible understanding is infinite and maybe beyond our human comprehension – Sandra
This was my second course with Crop Circle Explorers and it was a great experience – unique in fact. I came away feeling as though I had visited the Ogbourne St George formation in person after perusing the maps and wonderful panoramic photographs of the Wiltshire landscape, shared by Karen in her introduction to the course. I gained an appreciation of the setting of the crop circle within the larger context of its relationship to the ancient landmarks and monuments, of which there are many within the area. I really enjoy the balance of presentations, meditations, geometry lessons, mandala-making and sharing time in these courses; there are also excellent resources which are downloadable to keep. The course coordinators, Karen and Geoff are warm and wise hosts who welcome each participant and create a group ethos where experiences relating to the crop circle may be shared and respectfully heard. It’s a privilege to meet with others from around the globe in this virtual space, all brought together by a common interest in the crop circle phenomenon. – Julie E
