A gathering for the bees and the humans who love them … and the earth.
Come join us as we explore
- How bees inspire mindful, conscious living practices.
- A day in the life of a bee and how they inspire our own path and consciousness as individuals within a collective.
- The alchemy of honey; honoring our nectar and pollen in community life.
- The evolution of flowers and pollinators, and the interconnectedness of all life.
- The rising feminine in apiaries; the balance of the sacred feminine and masculine in honeybee life and all our lives.
- The medicine and healing of grieving the loss of bees.
- Making honeycomb and building communities; generative tension within a colony of human beings.
- Queen piping, song lines and our part in singing the life of community into being.
- Bee caring, creativity … and love as the ultimate activism.

Who Is This Journey For?
This weekend is for bee lovers and appreciators, earth lovers and community builders, teachers, artists, NGO members … anyone and everyone interested in exploring bees and how they inspire better relations with ourselves, our communities and with all life. No beekeeping experience required.
This event is organized by O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE where the residents are concerned about massive bee losses on Vancouver Island. The challenges honeybees and so many other life forms are experiencing, that we are fellow family with on this earth, are requiring something different from us in our consciousness and practices.
