What does your sacred symbol look like? Join Gina Gruenberg and Rodi as we combine the math of sacred geometry with the ancient art of Henna, also known as Mehndi. A temporary way of decorating the body (or other materials), Henna offers an opportunity to study geometric shapes, patterns, and symbols that have been used worldwide since ancient times. Sacred geometry is based upon the premise that certain patterns, ratios, and geometries are consistently repeated in nature. Students will study the mathematics and history underlying sacred geometries of many cultures. Throughout the course, we will mix henna, devise applicators, and learn application methods. The end goal is the creation of personal sacred geometric symbols. Visiting Instructor Gina Gruenberg is a graduate of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec and of Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York. Like Rodi, she believes that play is essential to learning. As an educator, artist and acupuncturist, Gina is dedicated to exploring and thinking outside of the box.
