TWO-DAY COURSE: The Dance of Earth & Venus

TWO-DAY COURSE: The Dance of Earth & Venus

A life-changing two-day course with Daniel Docherty.

The dance of Earth and Venus results in one of the most beautiful and breathtaking rhythms and patterns of the solar system. Every eight Earth years (13 Venus years) they dance a pentagonal form in space akin to the pip-star inside your apple or the petals of a primrose flower!

During this course we will learn how to draw this incredible pattern using the traditional tools of compass and straight-edge; we will explore the key aspects of Earth and Venus cycles that determine such extraordinary heavenly harmony.

With watercolour paint made from malachite and azurite - which in the Hermetic/Alchemical tradition have forever been associated with the planet Venus - we will create stunning mandalas embodying the Earth/Venus dance.
