What is Sacred Geometry?

  • Sacredness

    It's about perceiving the perfection of form rather than calculating mundane quantities. Seen through this truthful lens, geometry can be a vehicle to the transcendent.

  • Ingenious Techniques

    Gain the requisite skills to draw accurate equilateral triangles to enneagons and everything in between. Construct the golden ratio, square the circle, and more.

  • Become a Geometer

    Expand your consciousness through the elegant time-tested experience of drawing. Master the art and science of sacred geometry and become a certified geometer!

  • All the skills needed to construct precise drawings are covered so no experience is required.

  • Course can be taken with compass, straightedge, pencil and paper or by using a free iOS app.

  • Students completing the course are issued printable certificates to be proud of.

  • Multilingual Subtitles

    All video lessons have English, French and Spanish captions. / Toutes les leçons vidéo ont des sous-titres français traduits automatiquement. / Todas las lecciones en video tienen subtítulos en español traducidos automáticamente.

  • Bonus Material

    Course includes printable visual mnemonics for particular sacred geometries. Many chapters have surveys and informal quizzes to help you contemplate the content. Ask questions and comment in course discussion groups.

  • Group Coaching

    Every one of Scott's paid courses includes a scheduled webinar where you can see his screen, chat with him and read what other students write in realtime — a great way to get your specific questions answered.

Self-Paced Course Details

Experience Scott's high-quality, high-impact course in time-released lessons (one chapter per week), which hopefully keeps you engaged but not feeling overwhelmed. 

Most of the course consists of Scott's screen-captured HD quality videos (with subtitles in English, French & Spanish) that you watch and then practice what is explained on your own—either on paper or using a drawing program (Scott uses a free iOS app which he explains how to use in the course).

This course also includes printable PDFs, optional quizzes and student surveys. You can ask questions and comment using the course's built-in discussion groups in most chapters. 

Each course comes with scheduled group coaching webinars (using zoom.us) every 4-6 weeks or so where students can interact with Scott in live chat. Enrolled students will periodically receive emails with weekend webinar dates. If you miss one, catch the next webinar when it is scheduled. 

*Course and webinar access expires after one year from the date of enrollment.

Social proof: testimonials

Master of Geometry

by Alex Fray

Scott is a true master of geometry so to learn from him was a privilege, and he was a great teacher.
by Jukka Masalin

Co-Creator

by Jukka Masalin

Some years ago I stumbled across something called Secrets In Plain Sight [Scott's films]. It made an impact on me that could only be expressed as awe. Since then I have never looked at reality the same. Learning to do perfect geometry with just a compass, ruler and a pencil gave sensations of the true nature of being a co-creator.

Ancient Wisdom

by Angie Kinsella

Exploring an ancient wisdom through sacred geometry, a truly wonderful way to spend your time and energy. These experiences are an incredible reminder of the sense of power in community and the ripple effect of positivity that can create in the world.

Deeper philosophical meaning

Morgan

I am currently in the middle of a sacred geometry course. It is taught by a master geometer named Scott Onstott. It is amazing! I am using a compass and straightedge and I am learning so much about structure and shape and deeper philosophical meanings of individual numbers. I can't recommend it enough. You can take a free course to get a taste of the larger course. Do it! You will love it.
