Similar geometric elements and numbers are shared through seemingly unrelated parts of the natural world. How can the fossil of an ancient cephalopod be mathematically proportional to cauliflower growing today? These same elements are also shared between many religious symbols, structures, and ideologies. Why are a Christian cathedral and Buddhist mandala constructed with the same laws of symmetry? By observing the mathematics of our world, understood by many peoples from many worldviews, we can discover for the underlying patterns which connect us all. This Session will give bring an interactive experience of sacred geometry originally by compiled by religious scholar Robert Lawler to the Ripple Interfaith Conference. We will begin with me giving a short introduction on why sacred geometry is important to me, and hopefully pique some interest with exciting examples. Then, in small groups or individually we’ll solve some geometry problems corresponding to real religious art and natural processes, solved and annotated by Robert Lawler. Afterwards, we’ll have a discussion about what this could mean in the context of our different spiritualities. This is not just a seminar for math enthusiasts, but artists, scientists, and anyone else interested in learning how the many paths of faith can lead to a singular truth.
