“I had signed up for the workshop with a vague idea of validating whether or not beekeeping was something I wanted to get back into, so wanted the real experience and ‘instruction’ around hive life.  But I also wanted to spend time in the imaginative life of beekeeping – so the poetry, and your story of bees as a significant part of your healing journey was really important.  Sensing into your relationship with them - the calm, the respect, the love – was an important part of witnessing how a relationship with bees teaches those very things.  I loved how the different activities dove-tailed so well into one another.  The ‘energy meditation’ of approaching the hive taught me well about respect for boundaries, and the deep purposefulness of their lives.  We can co-exist beautifully as long as I ‘let them bee.’ “

On the surface, most people would say – “Yeah pleasure - bring it on.” But when we dig a bit deeper we discover - we don't know what real pleasure is and despite wanting it, we are also rather opposed to it. Maybe you have suspicions about pleasure, if not downright fear towards it. All this begs the question, “Is it okay to have pleasure?” Read more >
