Saturday, February 24th, 6pm (Pacific) | “The Magician’s Jewel”: Art, Biogeometry, and Transformation, with Susan Griffith-Jones


The Magician's Jewel is a large, exclusive multi-dimensional structure that’s been designed to hold the quintessential, heart essence meaning of the Vajrayana path (the Diamond Way) of Tibetan Buddhism in a symbolically awe-inspiring, immersive and interactive exhibition piece.

Joining us from her home in the Indian Himalayas, Susan Griffith-Jones will explain both the meaning of ‘The Magician’s Jewel’ as it has revealed itself to her so far, as well as request those of you who would wish to continue on this journey with her, to attend an in-person workshop later on in the year, in the Bay area, in which we will dive deeper into the more intricate parts of its mechanism in a dialogue about building its prototype.

About "The Magician's Jewel"

The Magician's Jewel is a large, exclusive multi-dimensional structure that’s been designed to hold the quintessential, heart essence meaning of the Vajrayana path (the Diamond Way) of Tibetan Buddhism in a symbolically awe-inspiring, immersive and interactive exhibition piece.

Comprising outer and inner parts, carefully measured shapes and angles have been combined to form one magnificent installation that not only holds the symbolic forms and colours of the highest tantric yoga of Tibetan Buddhism, but of many other genres of knowledge too, including Universal Harmonics, the Platonic Solids, Sacred Geometry, Optics, Crystalline structures, Electrical Engineering, Biogeometry and many more.

Describing the processes of Birth, Life, Death and In Between in a lively, visual rendition of Bardo Thodol (The Tibetan Book of the Dead) first exposed by the great Indian saint, Guru Padmasambhava millennia ago, the participant first explores the Bardo of Life in the large park layout surrounding the device and then enters the central installation piece of TMJ to experience the other 5 Bardos; those of Sleep, Meditation, Death, Reality and Becoming.

Inside the heart of the structure, that has been built to resonate its subtle meaning to the beholder, splendid interactive sound and light displays dazzle the participant, who will now ascend a winding spiral travelator while passing through 12 viewing platforms that are large enough to allow people to comfortably move around on, a full chromatic octave of harmonic resonance that leads to a chamber resonating the sound of AUM at its apex.

An inner route ensues in which participants don Augmented and Virtual Reality glasses then follow a pathway through varying chambers and inner spaces of the installation, going through key visualisation processes that are carefully designed to enhance the experience as well as create a multi-dimensional space at the very heart of this installation.
