Zoence Academy & Mystery School

The Academy teaches via talks, seminars and workshops (see Events), plus information sheets (see Info Sheets), books, DVDs, CDs, and study papers (see Publications).

The Mystery School provides practical and mystical experience of all these truths, and more, via the special events and geocosmological pilgrimages (see Events).

The Academy prepares and trains the student; the Mystery School enables the student to become the initiate—a consciously inspired, knowledgeable, skilful actor upon the stage of the world.

Latest News

Having enjoyed the Wisdom of Shakespeare Weekend on "Friendship and Love" (12-13 July) and the European Swan Line Pilgrimage (18-27 July), we look forward to the two events in the heart chakra area of Europe (a landscape zodiac centred on the town of Constance), which will take place on Saturday 16 August and Sunday 17 August. The first, "White Waters – Pure Ocean of Bliss: Thinking with the Heart", will be an afternoon meditational workshop in the chakra garden and seminar house of Renata Caddy. The second, "Heart Beauty – Beauty in the Heart and Beauty of the Heart", will be a day retreat in Ruth Maria Kubitschek's garden paradise. The beauty of both gardens, although very different from each other, is profound as well as healing, inspiring and educational, and both embody a chakra system and 'Tree of Life'.

Following this is the Mystery of Shakespeare Week in Verona (30 Aug - 6 Sept) led by Peter Dawkins and Mark Rylance. As for the Wisdom of Shakespeare weekend, this Mystery of Shakespeare week will be focused on the Shakespeare play, "The Two Gentlemen of Verona"—a mystery play which shares the same Italian home town location for the two gentlemen, Valentine and Proteus, and Proteus' fiancée Julia, as the two young lovers, Romeo and Juliet, in the Shakespeare play of that name.

A special Paneurhythmy Day, "Supreme Cosmic Rhythm", led by Sarah Dawkins, will take place at Colwood House (another house with a magnificent garden) on Saturday, 20 September. This will be followed on Sunday, 21 September, by the third and last seminar, "Fairyland and its Heroes", of the three-part “Shakespeare and the Matter of Britain” series of Sunday afternoon seminars presented by Peter Dawkins at Charing Cross Hotel, London.
