Her thorough research and study has led to the conclusion that the likely author of Shakespeare’s body of work is a woman – Mary Sidney. There are a lot of missing pieces in the life and times of William Shakespeare – little formal education, even less knowledge of or access to the royal court and politics, no evidence that he could write at all.

There was a shift in the experience of the medieval humans from being miserable, unquestioning, keep-your-head-down and don’t-make-waves commoners to citizens who entertained aspirations of becoming a Renaissance adventurer, creator, and scientist.

How can we access Shakespearean wisdom, apply it to our own lives and embody the spirit of adventure, creativity and curiosity to fuel a Renaissance for our time?
