    About Sacred Geometry

    10 minute read
    Mary Page says:
    Hebrews and then Jews developed geometric figures that they used during meditation to invite God's creative energy into their lives and are known as sacred mathematical archetypes. They were used to recreate devastated towns, to guide in the wilderness, and to comfort when occupied. Students like to talk about their churches and pastors and this gives the opportunity to do so.
