Evening  Sessions - Day

1

We all come from different countries and paths of life to convene at the Learning from the Bees Conference and are holding the light of bees in our hearts. It is a rare opportunity to gather as such a group and to allow this light to merge and become an inspiration for the world.

Apian Constellation is an experiential and participatory voyage into the soul scape of honeybees. It is an opportunity to enter the apian field as a tissue-like gathering of human individuals while attending to deep listening and a sense of surrendering. It is an exercise of collective sensing and perceiving oneself as part of a larger ecology of selves. Constellation is an invitation to follow without thinking and to tap into the plasticity of apian life. It is a basic call to consciousness.
