Geomancy is a process of attunement to

multi-dimensionality of the landscape

In our culture, we tend to think of ourselves as separate from the environment.  We also tend to see our environment as purely physical, even though we now recognize ourselves as multi-layered: with emotional, mental and spiritual awareness.  Geomancy invites us to see ourselves as part of the earth whole and the whole of earth existing as multi-dimensional.  Geomancy teaches us a method and a language with which we relate to the multi-dimensional world.  Simply, Geomancy is learning the language of the Earth. Specifically, we learn to recognize and even communicate with various aspects of Earth’s consciousness, such as the elements, known as ‘elemental consciousness’ or ‘beings,’ or the Earth’s energy grid sometimes known as ‘ley lines.’  The ancient Chinese referred to this grid as ‘Dragon lines.’  Geomancy is related to the Asian art of Feng Shui, but uses Western terminology.

We practice Geomancy in the tradition of Marko Pogacnik and Ana Pogacnik.  They have initiated a gloabal movement to remember the lost art of Geomancy, the Earth’s language.  With close to 100,000 students worldwide, known as LifeNet, we are recovering our inate ability to communicate with nature.  Enriching and rewarding work, we are part of a mass transformation in human consciousness to awaken to the divinity of the earth and human potential beyond our current conceptions.  View a piece relating to Geomancy by Marko, below:

Even modern science (especially quantum physics) now tells us that what we perceive as solid is actually dense energy- vibrating so fast it is perceived by us to be solid. Energy is everywhere, comprises everything seen and unseen (even space is now known to be energy), and energy differs qualitatively. We can choose to organize our lives, create and build our structures based on information from the existing energetic grid- informed by the consciousness of nature.  This is a more efficient and harmonic process than simply applying one’s mental projections to the landscape, as is common in conventional architectural practice.

How this relates to your piece of the pie

Exploring and defining energy qualitatively, helps to determine most harmonious site development plan, identifies potential problems before they arise, aids in efficiency- and most importantly- deepens our understanding and connection with the landscape.

For purposes of comprehension, we can divide the energetic landscape into two categories:

  1. Energy centers- exist as ‘vortexes’ or places in the landscape that energetically serve particular functions, much like physical organs or chakras in the human body.  Ley lines and where they cross fall into this category.
  2. Manifestations of consciousness- we use the Western traditional language of devas, angelic presence, and elementals. Elemental ‘beings’ are soul entities or consciousness of the earth’s elements: earth, water, fire, air. I have never met an elemental being of space. I have met one responsible for effects of plastic, surprisingly, which lead me to conclude the elemental kingdom is much larger than has been documented.  An Angelic focus is a place we find that the ‘oceanic consciousness known as angels’ is concentrated in relationship to earth, according to Ana Pogacnik. Every human being has innate ability to connect with such spiritual forces; it is a matter of purity of intent and an ability to function outside of the rational mind.
