"It was a wonderful experience. I have read Shakespeare earlier but your insights and analysis of Macbeth have have shown an entirely different way of appreciating the literature."    I.B. India

"Just wanted to say how much I appreciated your classes and how inspiring and awakening they were.You breathed life into Shakespeare's words and reminded me that they are as much about sound as they are about texture, time, space, rhythm, movement and much more. I am looking forward to Macbeth!"  A.E. Dublin, S.Ireland.

"Thank you very much for the inspiring study session yesterday ... I hope you will do a lot more publishing as you have many unique insights into Shakespeare which the world and posterity should have the opportunity of hearing about!"   E.C. London, UK.

"Philip, I need to be Shakespeare to describe how much I loved reading these sonnets with you. Thank you for guiding us through the maze that they present, for unravelling the complexities of his use of language and sentence structure with such clarity and patience. And most importantly, thank you for showing us the grandeur of Shakespeare's vision.  Every sonnet was uplifting and meditative a strange combination me thinks?! Thank you seems too trite to use, but it will have to do. God bless."       L. A.  India.

"Just a quick one to thank you ever so much for a great course. I really enjoyed it and feel I have learnt a lot!"  T.H. London, UK.

"I wanted to thank you for a wonderful lecture on Shakespeare's sonnets! I studied Shakespeare in school but had no idea of his mysticism depicted as you brought out in his sonnets! I shall now read his works with a different mindset. I shall certainly introduce your courses to those friends of mine interested in it. Thank you very much!"   K.K. USA.

"Thank you for the lovely adventure you have invited me to join. Manifestation is rich in events and to enter such a magic world has been a source of reflection and delight."   M.L. Rome, Italy.

"Thank you very much for the riveting session we had this evening. The years rolled by and I was a student once more. I enjoyed listening to your views on the sonnet we were looking at today - the part about silence was particularly relevant, especially since I practice yoga and meditation on a daily basis. I often tell my students to read aloud and feel the words. I will now tell them to pause for two seconds at the end of each line! It's so powerful!"   J.M. New Delhi, India.

"Very much enjoying the fantastic poetry of the Bard - as you say - it just keeps unpacking meaning, and is wonderfully musical. Sending love."   C.H. Worcester, UK.

"Many thanks again for your inspiring and thought-provoking sonnet evenings. I shall certainly spend more time reading and 'listening' to them - you have opened a doorway..."   R.A. France.

"Thank you Philip for the sonnets' course which was really insightful ... it's excellent!"   S.T. London, UK. 

"Thank you Philip for another enlightening session ... I came in almost accidentally, and am so glad I did - it's been hugely enriching."  A.K. London, UK.

"Thank you for the sonnets course! I really enjoyed them! In fact, I am planning on going over another one of the sonnets you mentioned!"   K.K.  Ohio, USA.

"One hundred, thousand thanks Philip, listening to it as I type - magic! Can I just add that your classes rock!"  S.M. London, UK. 

" I had a marvellous time yesterday. Loved every minute of it. As you know, it's close to ' the witching hour ' when we finish (India time) and it all becomes deliciously spooky! ... I need to have Shakespeare's gift with words to express how much I enjoyed the sessions with you."   L.M.A, Chennai, India.

" Thank you Philip for whetting my appetite again! I shall now re-read the play again in a new light."    J.F.  London, UK. 

" Just to let you know, I found the sonnet sessions extremely interesting and educative. I had never gathered the courage earlier to try to absorb the sonnets and always thought that the plays are what Shakespeare is all about. However, your guiding us through the nuances of the several sonnets you took up over the past weeks did indeed help to get a hold on the way to absorb these and appreciate the literary art ... thanks indeed!"  I.B. New Delhi, India

"Thank you Philip for another enlightening session ... I came in almost accidentally, and am so glad I did - it's been hugely enriching."  A.K. London, UK.
