Description - The Shamanic Way of the Bee by Simon Buxton

Bee shamanism may well be the most enigmatic and obscure branch of shamanism, yet it exists throughout the world - wherever in fact the honeybee exists. Its medicinal tools are now in common usage - such as honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly - and even the origins of Chinese acupuncture can be traced back to the ancient practice of applying bee stings to the body's meridians. In The Shamanic Way Of The Bee an elder of the Path of Pollen reveals for the first time the basic tenets of this tradition, the spiritual origins and ceremonial uses of these healing practices, and some of its secret teachings, which until now have been known only to initiates. Simon Buxton's footsteps were first put on the Path of Pollen at the age of nine when an Austrian bee shaman cured him of a near fatal illness. This early contact prepared him for his later meeting with an elder of the tradition who took him on as an apprentice. Following an intense initiation that opened him to the mysteries of the hive mind, the author learned over the next 13 years the practices, rituals and tools of bee shamanism.
