What is the significance of Hekate’s appearance and mentions throughout the works of Shakespeare and how might we use these dramatic works to enhance our practice? Drawing on recent explorations of the subject in their forthcoming book, So Potent Art: The Magic of Shakespeare, Emily Carding will take you on a fascinating exploration of some of Shakespeare’s hidden depths, unlocking gateways to a powerful portrayal of the divine feminine and world soul.
