The subject of Sacred Geometry springs to life in the hands of Michael. As an architect, he takes a holistic approach to design, based on the understanding that everything is connected, alive and conscious. His company, Holistic House Plans, is the world's largest online resource for building and space designs based on the natural harmonic principles of biological architecture, sacred geometry and feng shui. Each design is unique, and has emerged from an expression of natural patterns, symmetries, shapes, universal symbols and ratios.

This practical hands-on retreat workshop is open to all to attend, the only prerequisite is an open mind, enthusiasm for sustainable eco sensitive environments, and a desire to reach for your highest potential as a designer, feng shui practitioner, architect and for anyone wishing to create soul-satisfying 'sacred spaces'.

Michael is an amazing teacher.  He not only has complete practical knowledge and understanding of this amazing art, but also conveys it with an openness of heart and clarity of purpose. He has inspired every person who attended his workshops over the past years.

Sacred Geometry, or spiritual geometry, is a universal language of truth, harmony, beauty, proportion, rhythm and order. Architects and designers draw upon concepts of sacred geometry when they choose particular geometric forms to create pleasing, harmonious, and spiritually uplifting spaces. This workshop is designed to present a good grounding in the science and art of Sacred Geometry, as well as many practical applications and exercises.

Ireland has some of the most spectacular sights in the world with awesome natural scenery that has a seriously magnetic effect. Around every corner is something different - a charming village, an eccentric castle, an archeological wonder or an awesome view.

The famous Ring of Kerry is without doubt Ireland's most popular scenic drive. It is part of the mystical & unspoilt region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. This experience will provide an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland

We pass through Limerick, a jewel of a county, its villages and towns are renowned for their beauty, and are magical, romantic and rewarding little spots, which will seduce you with their charm.

The Cliffs of Moher are truly awe-inspiring, considered the most outstanding coastal landscape along with the most  amazing views in Ireland.

We stay the night in the Bantry Region in the heart of West Cork. A region of lush vegetation, palm trees and semi-tropical flowers. Hemmed in by high mountain ridges, an azure blue sea and cascading mountain streams, it is a place of unparalled beauty where the landscape changes with every mood of wind and sky.

"It was an incredible experience to be involved in the design and the actual building of a sacred geometry based structure. I saw from start to finish how it should be done!" David Hughs, designer

"expanding myself in this direction has been such a energy change in many ways. I am looking forward to continuing playing in this area to see where I go with it. I will be applying it right away to a client's play yard". -Colleen Brand, interior designer

"the illustrating of how everything around us can be fractally connected from macro levels to micro.. .from actual physical exercise to intangible energy is simply fascinating. Michael Rice teaches and makes things easy to understand. I liked the balance between thoery and practical exercises. The big context as well as the nitty gritty of drawing applications. The show (slides) and tell (stories), Depth and breath of information as well as the flow was fantastic!! My perspective of the world has been greatly enhanced"  -Denise/landscaper

"Very enjoyable, incredibly informative, superb educator, Makes information highly accessible. Teaching using multiple approaches, engaging listening, drawing collaboration, tactile, body movement. Effectively embedded his sacred knowledge in each and everyone of us. What a gift. Handing a complex body of knowledge and sharing its practical application- through architecture showed us all where this could go. Having the personal experience of coming into alignment, dropping through the worm hole-priceless." -Sally Grisedale

"the incredible presentation and drawing the geometries. Very lovely energy and awareness that Michael brought. A lot of heart opening wisdom. Loved how everything came together- the bio, living, consious cosmic implosion of knowledge".  -Marjory Mejia, architect designer

"I feel far more confident in what is possible to build. Curves and organic shapes were made remarkably easily on this workshop, that in itself was powerful but the speed at which it was done is truly astounding. Mel (the master builder) showed us all the tips and techniques he has built up over the years on building organic structures. Thanks Mike" - Louise, architect
