She discusses the mystical aspects of the bee, including the trance-inducing sound of their drone, the link between their “honey” and medicines thought to induce non-ordinary states of consciousness, and their parthenogenetic (virgin birth) power, revealing aspects of women’s priestess power that have rarely been discussed.
Pointing out that bee behavior itself has long been seen as a form of prophetic communication, she concludes by reflecting on the meaning of the current bee disappearance crisis — colony collapse disorder — as it relates to the sacred feminine and women’s power.

|This woman from Portugal, who is now living in Glastonbury is going to give a seminar on the topic of Cale, Cailleach of Iberia, in the Goddess Conference. In the far West, where the Sun merges each evening into the deep endless Ocean, lies the sacred Garden of Cale, Calaica, Cailicia, the Garden of the Golden Apples of eternity. Nine wise sisters, the Hesperides, the Sisters of the Sunset, are the keepers of Cale’s sacred land, keepers of the ancient wisdom and mysteries of life and death. They have been for ages waiting to be found, willing to allow us to enter their magical Garden of deep knowing, remembrance, and wholeness. In this workshop we will explore their Garden, finding the gifts and treasures they hold for each one of us.|
