20 Dec Honeybee Magick & Medicine
Honey Bees have been practicing civilization for at least 50 million years – sustaining themselves completely on plant medicine, while inspiring all that feeds them to grow more colorful, delicious-smelling, and nectarious! Couldn’t we humans do the same?
This class is a journey that begins with story-telling, honey-tasting, and making an herbal honey infusion together.
We will familiarize ourselves with the life cycles of the buzzing residents of honeybee hives, the magick of what they create from their bodies, and the reverence with which they harvest and give back to the flowering plant world which feeds them.
In speaking to all of their gifts (from pollination services to honey, pollen, wax, propolis, royal jelly) I will share both modern wisdom, and ancient tales, while passing around tasty samples of infused honeys, tinctures, and potions. Together we will discuss how to live in service to what feeds us, how to nurture honeybee habitat, and transform the world around us with lessons from the bees themselves.
The class will include:
– samples of floral source honeys, infused honeys, fresh bee pollen, ethically gathered royal jelly, honey spirits & alchemical planetary potions
– alchemical & revolutionary poetry
And requires nothing but an open heart.
Honeybee Magick & Medicine will be shared by Shannon Pritchard.
