Learning Shakespeare – Your English Teacher was Right!

While in Stratford-upon-Avon last month, I had the opportunity to interview Peter Dawkins, Shakespeare and Francis Bacon scholar. Listen to why he loves Shakespeare and why it’s important to keep at least a few stories of the plays in mind as you travel the highways and byways of life.

Why Shakespeare?

Peter is a philosopher, author, lecturer, visionary, geomancer, Zoence consultant and teacher, and a Baconian and Shakespearean scholar. He is the founder of Zoence Academy & Mystery School, which he runs in partnership with his wife Sarah, and of the Francis Bacon Research Trust, of which he is the principal, and a co-founder of Gatekeeper Trust, of which he is now an elder.

Shakespeare’s Cymbeline  

I’m off to Stratford-upon-Avon tomorrow to attend a Wisdom Shakespeare workshop and see the play Cymbeline. The workshop is led by Peter Dawkins. I will be interviewing Peter on Sunday, June 12 about why it’s important to study the plays, at the very least knowing the stories of several plays. 

Here’s a little about Cymbeline:

Cymbeline deals with the mystery of initiatic death and resurrection, of evil overcome by good, of the corrupted old dying and the purer new being born, through the mysterious action of love that moves like a gentle air. It is a true mystery—a mythological drama in which the initiatic path is shown and great truths are revealed. Its secrets apply to both individuals and societies, to both nations and the world. It is a vision of hope and a science as to how it is achieved.

Childhood Home of Francis Bacon

Hello friends! Join me on this journey in and around London as I explore the origins of the Shakespeare plays and the mind that created them.

With a masters in teaching Shakespeare to children and youth, I am following my passion to dig deeper into the players on the London stage then. I believe even knowing the stories of several plays can change a person’s consciousness, helping them play their part more successfully on the world stage.

The narration isn’t perfect, and fact checking is necessary, but this is a start. Do enjoy and feel free to comment.
