Alex Champion, Ph.D.
Alex Champion received a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley and practiced science for over 20 years. His interested shifted to sacred geometry, more appropriately known as natural geometry, in the 1980's. He started making labyrinths and symbolic mazes into earthworks in 1987, and founded his business EARTH SYMBOLS. Being an amateur gardener all his life, it became natural for him to transform earthworks into sculptured gardens. This type of garden fits in with his naturalist philosophy, where the earthworks are in harmony with the environment.
He applies the principles of sacred geometry and geomancy in his designs and work. As an experienced dowser, he uses dowsing to look for energy lines before, during and after each earth symbol is constructed.
During the past 13 years, Alex has made over 70 installations in the U.S., representing 30 different symbolic designs. He has constructed more than 40 earthworks, mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area and Mendocino County in California.
Dr. Champion lectures on mazes, labyrinths, and other symbols. He speaks to the history of labyrinths and mazes, the concept of the labyrinth, sacred geometry, archetypal symbols, his research on subtle energies and stories of his work. He has been a regular speaker at the annual West Coast Conference of the American Society of Dowsers since 1988, where he annually puts up one or two labyrinthine designs for the attendees to experience. He has dowsed and built five labyrinths and symbols located on his property in Mendocino County.
