The Sacred Geometry Intensive 2017 will be co-hosted by Scott Onstott and Geoff Fitzpatrick.
45-minutes from the Dublin International Airport, the Transpersonal Institute is a fully restored Georgian residence with room for 32 guests, nestled in 24 acres of wooded parkland.
- Access extraordinary states of mind simply by drawing with pencil, straightedge & compass and adorning what you’ve drawn with natural materials.
- Move beyond talk into life-changing transpersonal experiences in a safe space where you can connect with your own inner-healing intelligence.
- See how everything around you is in a very real way interconnected by perceiving all-pervasive patterns of geometric order surrounding our lives.
- Learn to properly draw with compass and straightedge even if you have never drawn before. Everyone can do it!
- Enjoy a deeply rewarding sensation of satisfied completion with every drawing.
- Use the traditional tools of the Tibetan Masters—chak-purs.
- Interact with the archetypal forces operating just below the psyche’s surface.
- Harness the power of mandala to move beyond the thought stream of the mind.
- Feel group connectedness when co-creating a large mandala.
- Honour the impermanence of all things through a letting go / gratitude session.
- Give yourself time, space and permission to set aside the outside world for one weekend and explore geometry in a way that can facilitate a reconnection with your essential centre.

The Transpersonal Institute hosts courses on Counselling, Dance Therapy, Holotropic Breathwork, Psychotherapy, Shamanism, Voice Work, Yoga, and more.
Consider visiting the Hill of Tara and Newgrange on your own, or with new friends you meet after at the workshop. These sites are close—only 20 and 35 minute drives from the venue, respectively.
The Hill of Tara is topped by the coronation stone, aka the “stone of destiny” where the High Kings of Ireland were crowned. Newgrange, and its sister-site Knowth, contain Europe’s largest and most important concentration of prehistoric megalithic art. You can go inside the long narrow passage of Newgrange in small groups and see a simulated winter solstice sunrise illuminate the interior, a memorable experience.
Comfortable shared accommodations are located in separate wings for men and women while private rooms have limited availability.
Delicious vegetarian food is served exclusively.
What People Are Saying About These Workshops
If you find yourself attracted to the insights and messages you get from watching Scott Onstott’s ’Secrets in Plain Sight’ and reading his wonderful books and other writings — go to his workshop. Most likely, like me and others who attended his Sacred Geometry Workshop in Ireland, you will find your experience will be profound in ways that transcend the talk of geometry. Scott himself is an inspiration beyond description, and you will likely find yourself in the midst of people who seem to be your real family instead of strangers who have just met. If Geoff Fitzpatrick conducts his Mandala Workshop at the same time, you are in for a spiritual experience of great magnitude. Go! -Beverly Spicer (United States)
It’s difficult to put into words how deeply transformative and empowering it is to do a workshop with Scott and Geoff. Together they strike a beautiful balance at profound information with experiential practice. Coming together with like minds at one of their events is an experience that will deeply move you and bring a resounding faith and trust in humanity. Everyone expressed a strong sense of gratitude and joy during their journey here. Cannot recommend this highly enough! -Lewis Murphy (Ireland)
What a fantastic workshop experience. The emphasis on concentration, contemplation and meditation gave a great structural framework in which to explore the incredible shared insight of the group, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in geometry and the powerful effect it has on consciousness. Geoff is a brilliant facilitator, and I am sure in the distant future Scott will be considered as one of the great minds of our age. Maybe that time will be sooner than we think. -Harry Webley (UK)

About the Presenters
I studied architecture in university and started my career doing manual drafting. Later I transitioned to using CAD software and worked as a designer in many prominent architectural and engineering offices in San Francisco. As an admirer of great design, I was fascinated by the crop circle phenomenon. In my spare time I drew crop circles and I can attest that the geometry itself slowly upgraded my consciousness.
In 2010 I ended up writing, producing and narrating the Secrets in Plain Sight films, now seen by more than 9 million people (as of Feb ’17). These films reveal how sacred geometry underlies much of the world’s great art, architecture and urban design. I’ve written 7 books since and sacred geometry plays a central role every time.
I have come to realize that geometry is the universal language because the universe—in all its manifold complexity—is literally geometry imagined in the universal mind.
When we draw geometry for the sake of geometry, we reflect the macrocosm in our own personal microcosms. Simply by drawing or decorating a geometric mandala, we get in tune with that which is above; it feels authentic, true, is healing, allows us to see others in their essence, connects us with our higher selves. In a word it feels sacred. It’s not political, religious or something to over-intellectualize. Working with geometry is a transformative and unexpectedly mysterious experience. -Scott Onstott
…the greatest teachers for me have been the shapes themselves. The geometric symbols that date back into our prehistory and their origins dwell in the very fabric of what creates the universe itself.
Nothing has exposed me to more mystery or opened me to greater depths of inner experience than working with these symbols. The sum total of my seeking, the knowledge gleaned from the courses, workshops of all kinds, powerful peak experiences and exposure to enlightened teachers can be distilled down to one very simple thing.
I believe there is a greater wisdom available to us at all times…Nothing comes close to the experiences that unfold when I am connected to this higher wisdom. Nothing changes my life more, it frees me from patterns of attachment, opens me to greater depths of feeling, fills me with more gratitude, awakens me to the interconnectivity of existence, provides power in times of challenge, clarity when confusion visits and overwhelming feelings of being protected and loved. It is my view that one minute spent experiencing this higher wisdom will lead to more transformation than reading 100 books or attending 1000 courses. This has become a guiding principal for me, a core value.
It is in this spirit I present mandalanature.com. It is my wish that through sharing and distributing these shapes that my work will stand to help others open to their inner depths and experience their own mandala nature! -Geoff Fitzpatrick
Sacred Geometry Intensive 2016
Sacred Geometry Intensive 2016 was held in Dunderry Park, Co. Meath, Ireland from Oct. 14-16. This event was co-hosted by Scott Onstott and Geoff Fitzpatrick of mandalanature.com.
Scott led the group in creating sacred geometry drawings with compass & straightedge on Saturday and on Sunday Geoff led in co-creating a large group mandala with colored sand, stones and other natural materials.
Geoff Fitzpatrick has been hosting group mandala workshops for about 10 years now, and it was an honor to co-host my first workshop with him in his native Ireland. What an amazing experience! -Scott Onstott
Past Speaking Events
Scott Onstott was a presenter at the 10th annual Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge, which was held in Palm Springs, California from September 30-October 2, 2016. He spoke to an audience of about 200 people about the sacred geometry of the Great Pyramid, and shared his passion for illustrating the many layers of its encoding—a world wonder that still has much to teach us about the comprehensive and extraordinary wisdom of the ancients.
DVDs and digital access to all speakers presentations at the conference are available at cycleoftheages.org
