WELCOME TO HOLY BEE PRESS!  We are a crossroads of honeybee conversation and world bee salon.  You’ll find some wonderful articles and bee-ish products here … and books will follow later this year. Please join this bee-appreciative community by subscribing to our email list in the right hand column of this page.  And invite friends and family who are similarly inclined.

For anyone entertaining becoming a beekeeper or just simply swimming in the sea of honeybee appreciation, prepare to fall in love … and for generosity and gratefulness to well up and out of you so overwhelmingly that you feel like life is pouring a libation through you.  Prepare to feel like dying of sadness the first time a hive crosses over because of ill health, and then let your heart break … open.  Start finding a thousand ways to say thank you for all the blessings that being around bees will bring you … because thank you in itself will never feel adequate.  And prepare to fall in love with yourself and all life more than you ever thought possible … for the bees will bring you Home.

I want to thank Julie Parker of Handwoven Webs for her divine stewardship in co-creating the face and form of this blessed website and blog.  She is the bees’ knees to work with.  I am also eternally grateful to Clare Melinsky, way over there in Scotland, for the honeybee lino-cut that graces our banner.  Visit her website to see more of her work.  I have been a fan of hers for years.  Both of these women are two of the great lights of my life.

Blessed bee.  Blessed bees.

I am reading a beautiful book by Jacqueline Freeman, Song of Increase. Have you read it? This is a very moving book about our Little Goddesses. That is what I call my bees. When I feel upset or I just want to watch my bees I go and sit in front of the entrance. I love how they run into my head, because they are so focused on getting back to their hive, they run into me. I can feel them walk around on my head. Then they lift off to their hive.

Hello Debbie, thank you so much for your message and I am so sorry I am just reading it. Somehow the system didn’t notify me. Yes, I know Jacqueline’s book and she is a friend. She is writing a second book and can’t wait for that one to be birthed one fine day. So happy to hear you are also Bee Clan and enjoy their sacred presence in the ways you clearly do. Happy holiday season to you and your family and have a bright new year … you, your bees and everyone with heart’s reach.
