Dr Jonathan-Paul DeVierville and Karen Alexander sat down with Geoff Fitzpatrick for our inaugural podcast chat…
Run Time: 118 mins
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, Dublin 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.
Geoff will be a co-presenter at our Geometry Workshop and a Speaker at the Temporary Temples summer crop circle conference this August!
Some of our Favourite Geoff Quotes!
The crop circle experience is like falling in love.
When drawing crop circles stuff happens!
All their power is held in their authorlessness and mystery.
