The Mystery of Shakespeare Week in Verona (30 Aug - 6 Sept), led by Peter Dawkins and Mark Rylance, turned out to be truly remarkable, not least of which was the discovery that the villa we stayed at incorporated the archetypal layout of Solomon's Temple, was located on a powerful geomantic energy spot close to where the Temple of Venus had once stood, and had symbolic links to the Dionysian Mysteries, Freemasonry and the Shakespeare Authorship Mystery. Besides entering deeply into the "mystery" of the Shakespeare play, "The Two Gentlemen of Verona", we were also able to confirm that it was probably the first Shakespeare comedy and the 'opener' to all the following Shakespeare plays, announcing the main Shakespeare theme of the Gemini. The Gemini are traditionally known as "the Spearshakers". They form the symbolic signature of "Shakespeare" and provide the principal key to the Shakespeare authorship as well as to the Mysteries.
Following this, a Paneurhythmy Day, "Supreme Cosmic Rhythm", led by Sarah Dawkins, will take place at Colwood House on Saturday, 20 September. Then, on Sunday, 21 September, the afternoon seminar, "Fairyland and its Heroes" (last of the three-part “Shakespeare and the Matter of Britain” series), will be presented by Peter Dawkins at Charing Cross Hotel, London.
