The designs on the prayer flags are geometric patterns that were found in fields of wheat, barley, flax, and oil seed rape growing in Wiltshire UK.
I began looking at the crop formations using the internet in 2008. In July of 2009 I decided to go see them for myself.
The designs I selected to hand screen on silk are formations that I feel a resonance with or have a first hand experience of visiting.
The geometric patterns you are seeing here are crop formations designs of 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.
There are of course so many more, about 70 on the average in Wiltshire England alone.
To view some of these fantastic designs visit www.temporarytemples.com where photographs of the formations are archived by year.
Retreat leader, Siri Karta Kaur, certified Kundalini Yoga teacher and artist returns to experience the magic of Wiltshire each summer. After first visiting the crop formations in 2009, Siri Karta’s interest in the geometry of the formations became the central focus of her artwork. She explores the fields of Wiltshire, spending time in both stone circles and the crop circles, loving the experience of energetic frequencies offered by the land and the people she meets there.
If you are curious about the crop formations and want to experience them for yourself, this retreat is a great entry point. The yoga offered is appropriate for all levels, even to people who have never done yoga before. Staying in comfortable accommodations (shared twin rooms) in the center of Wiltshhire, (where 50 – 80 crop formations appear each year) is a great start. The beautiful Martinsell Centre has its own organic farm, quiet rooms, and a large room for yoga practice. The nutritious food made at the centre will support us in our practice and journey. The option for fresh detoxifying juices is also available.
Daily sunrise and sunset meditations will be offered. The physical yoga kryias offered will be tailored to suit the group of 8 participants. The emphasis of our work will be to release fear and realize our power. We will have meditations on sacred geometry, as well as individual painting projects as meditation. We will be updated on the latest crop formations in the areas and travel there as a group for exploration.
The retreat will consist of 5 days practicing yoga together and taking to the fields with a small group of adventurers to visit the new crop formations and ancient stone circles. Back at the retreat center we will be making sacred geometric art and enjoying delicious organic vegetarian meals, all while staying in the beautiful accommodations of the Martinsell Centre, near Pewsey.

Formation 2011 Temple Farm Wiltshire
This painting depicts what the stone circle looked like before the Roman invasion and christianization of England, that led to the destruction of many megalithic monuments in the British Isles. The crop formations all point to these sacred sites across the farmland of the UK, calling us to remember the earth energy.
