with Daniel Docherty

Cost: £225

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.
And time allowing … with copper leaf and 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 …

‘The dance of venus course was a mind-blowing, heart-opening experience!’

‘Thank you for a magical course where time and space merged and disappeared!

Thank you for your kindness, poetry, patience, gift of sharing the spheres, planets and other joys … I travelled out of my comfort zone and into magical realms of remembering and letting go. I have been transported way beyond any expectations …’
