Astrogeomancy Courses

Astrogeomancy is a new field of study developed by Xavier de la Huerga. It is a reconstruction of the ancient science that was used to build stone circles, pyramids and cathedrals. It considers the subtle influences of the Cosmos and the Earth in habitable spaces, the environment and the human soul. Astrogeomancy combines Exact Sciences and the Intuitive Worldview of our ancestors to develop a capacity to hear and understand the silent voice of the Cosmos.

Weekend Astrogeomancy Initiation Course

June 14, 15, 16

Astrogeomancy synthetizes knowledge from Astronomy, Numerosophy, Music Theory, Sacred Geometry, Sacred Metrology, Calendar Science, Alchemy and Astro-Mythology, into the unified whole that it used to be thousands of years ago.

An essential science lost in time

This transdisciplinary fusion of science, art and spirituality was practiced by the high megalithic cultures and their descendants for the planning, location and construction of settlements. This fusion helps to determine the dimensions and orientation of dolmens, pyramids, temples and monuments, to design their calendars, rituals and ceremonies, as well as all kinds of objects. 

In this way, our ancestors aligned their societies and their lives with profound principles, in resonance with the cosmic environment of the Earth. 

Other influences include mysterious geometric and mathematical correspondences, vibratory architecture of music and the archetypes that inhabit the microcosm of the human soul.

What will you learn with Astrogeomancy?

During these courses you will...

∆ Learn in practice and apply to your designs, what is the Golden Ratio, Vesica Piscis, Quadrature of the Circle, Tetraktis, the Soli-Lunar Magic of the Pythagorean Triangles, as well as other elements and philosophical principles of Sacred Geometry.

∆ Build a clinometer and learn how to use it in conjunction with a compass and a free astronomy program to calculate stellar alignments and positions, predict the rising and setting of stars, conduct mapping and surveying, and integrate astrogeomantic concepts into your projects.

∆ Understand the recent discoveries in Neuroscience concerning the functioning of the cerebral hemispheres and illuminating the mystery of the ancestral cosmovision that was based on a form of awareness where perception of oneself is experienced (not intellectualized) as inseparable from the Cosmos.

∆ Explore the geo-spiritual function of megalithic monuments and their historical legacy. The tremendous astrogeomantic and architectural sophistication of Carnac, Stonehenge, Sacsayhuaman, Baalbek, Gobekli Tepe, Puma Pumku, Avebury, the Great Pyramid of Egypt and other structures.

∆ Create an astrogeomantic structure both on paper and on the ground. Learn the basics of energetic harmonization and symbolic alignment of inner and exterior spaces.

∆ Get introduced to the complex and precise system of ancient sacred metrology. Its mysterious internal structure reveals that it is a natural numerical system, not invented, but discovered. Its practical application compliments perfectly with sacred geometry.

Beyond this living bubble we call Earth, there is beauty, harmony and order of a transcendental magnitude. We are not isolated from this cosmic order, the Earth's protective atmospheric and electromagnetic membrane is permeable. Through solar, lunar and stellar light, cosmic rays, gravitational waves from the galactic center, tides, geomagnetic storms... in addition to other less measurable influences that belong to the more subtle dimension of morphogenetic resonance; our interdependence with the exoplanetary environment is obvious, but it is constantly overlooked. 

Astrogeomancy and Permaculture

Both permaculture and astrogeomancy are based on the observation of nature. While permaculture focuses on the behavior of Earth's ecosystems and "listens to the land", astrogeomancy looks at the patterns of our Cosmic neighbourhood and "listens to the sky". 

The integration of astrogeomancy with permaculture results in designs imbued with a spiritual dimension, symbolically and conceptually meaningful and aligned to the cosmic archetypes that live within us and shape our world.

About the Teacher

Xavier de la Huerga is the founder and director of Aula Misterica, an educational organization dedicated to the research, recovery and dissemination of ancient astrogeomantic wisdom and techniques. Aula Mistérica also promotes pilgrimage, as well as demographic redistribution through rural repopulation with the Microcosmos Project for the creation of archaeo-futuristic settlements.

 Since 2003 he has lived and worked in intentional communities, ecovillages and permacultural projects. After 30 years living in the UK, he returned to Spain in 2020 where he currently resides.

 Since reading The Doors of Perception (Aldous Huxley) at the age of 11, he has dived endlessly into the esoteric traditions of the world. He has been a practitioner of Theurgy and Vipassana meditation for three decades. In 2009 he received a Certificate in Permaculture Design (Permaculture Association UK) and in 2020 he completed a Masters in Forest Bioeconomics (UCLM). He formulated the concept of Astrogeomancy in 2011 and has been teaching internationally ever since. 

He has extensive experience as an eco-builder specialised in passivhaus techniques, as well as sacred ponds and labyrinth construction. Has worked as a photographer and graphic designer. In 2012 he lectured on Tolkien's work at Loughborough University. He is now writing a book that explores the prehistoric roots of the Camino de Santiago and a Manual of Applied Astrogeomancy. His great passion is music, to which he occasionally devotes himself professionally.

Astrogeomancy 's results are notorious for the harmonisation and spiritualization of spaces at any scale. But there is much more to astrogeomancy than just this landing page. The one and only Astrogeomantic Blog in the world offers you in-depth articles.

The Solstice Celebration

Inti Raymi, or Summer Solstice, is a common celebration among First Nations in South America to honor the Earth and its living creatures. As in previous years, Finca Sagrada will host in 2024 an encounter to celebrate the Inti Raymi and to thank for the gift of Life. This year the Lunistice cycle is peaking and the Full Moon is synchronised with the Solstice bringing about intense energies. Plan your dates in Finca Sagrada to join us for this powerful event!


1. What background is required to take these courses?

None. This course will start from the beginning.

2. What other costs does taking the course have?

All meals are included in the cost of tuition, and you have the right to set up your own teng. If you want other more comfortable lodging options check them out in the Lodging section of the Starseeders Encounter page.

3. What is the Starseeders enconter?

It is the way we refer to the Summer period in Finca Sagrada, when we will have dicussions, ceremonies, Discussion panels and other courses & workshops.

4. Is Ecuador safe?

Ecuador has been on the news lately for the social convulsion caused by the Government's decision to end the wave of crime that started recently. The results of this campaign are already visible, as more than 500 criminals have been jailed. Even during the worst days of this conflict, Vilcabamba has remained a peaceful area, as many rural areas in Ecuador.

Finca Sagrada,  July 7-13, 2024

Biodynamic Farm Workshop

This six-day workshop will complement the Astrogeomancy courses but can be taken separately. You will experience how the members of the Finca Sagrada community steward this sacred site, combining ancient indigenous traditions with modern esoteric knowledge that lead to practical solutions. The workshop will center around biodynamic farming. You will learn how to build vibrant soils that will grow healthy food, and practices such as bio-char, tea sprays and bacterial inoculations, as well as lectures on biodynamic principles. These principles include the biodynamic preparations that open the soil to the spiritual formative forces of the stars and planets, working with the planting calendar, based on the moon moving through the constellations of the zodiac and working with the elemental and nature spirits of the landscape.

The Starseeders Encounter

It is the name of the summer months in Finca Sagrada, a time with workshops, courses, cremonies, discussions, live music and much more! More info here
