Spiral House: Revealing the Sacred in Everyday Life

by Tom Gottsleben||Patty Livingston||Ronnie Shushan||Mick Hales

An inspiring, lavishly illustrated book about how artist Tom Gottsleben and his wife, Patty Livinston, spent 20 years building and living in a 5-storey spiral house made of stone. Architects, landscape designers, and artists who incorporate metaphysical ideas into their work will be drawn to this singular approach to architecture and design, explained from a personal and 20-year undertaking. Teachers and students looking for a fresh way to understand the ancient principles of philosophical geometry will be drawn to using these principles in everyday life. Spiritual seekers who want to incorporate the sacred into an environment and not just a mindset. Why was an artist with no architectural experience inspired to design and build a five-storey spiral house made of stone? Can a home designed as sacred architecture be a comfortable place to live in the 21st century? How does living in a sacred space support one's path to awakening? These questions are answered in the story of artist Tom Gottsleben and his wife, Patty Livingston, who spent 20 years building a 5-storey spiral house made of stone. This inspiring, informative and inspirational book tells of Tom's years exploring stone sculpture and landscaping walls, his lifelong spiritual practice, his accidental discovery of sacred geometry, and how Patty's pragmatic nature grounded the project in the practicalities of a comfortable home. Although this is the personal story of one couple's journey and their beautiful home and joyful approach to life, its purpose is to attune readers to seeing and creating sacred space in their own lives.
