A Monk in the Beehive Book


A Monk in the Beehive A Short Discourse on Bees, Monks, and Sacred Geometry by Skye Ann Louise Taylor weaves together the threads of nature and spiritual practice, sitting, silence and the sound of the bees.  Beekeeping and monasticism have for centuries been partners, and here this ancient practice continues, combining the mystery of the soul with the magic of the hive.  Skye’s story brings sweetness and simplicity into our life, connecting us to the deeper roots of our being.  It leaves both sweetness and the fragrance of flowers behind, as well as silence and the ringing of temple bells. ~ Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Sufi Teacher, Author of The Prayer of the Heart in Christian and Sufi Mysticism

How does a monk actually get into a beehive?? Skye does it by going on a meditative journey which opens up a deep connection with nature, especially with the sacredness of the great bee.  This little book brings a big and important message that foes beyond bees and their crisis. ~ Gunther Hauk, Spikenard Farm, Author of Toward Saving the Honeybee

A Monk in the Beehive is both personal as well as political, an engaged call for deep listening and response to the wild heart of the hive.  ~ Wendy Johnson, Author of Gardening at the Dragon’s Gate

Sitting with bees generate attunement, attention, and amazement.  Through A Monk in the Beehive, the wonders of community can be discovered through observing the self-organizing dynamic created by bees.  Watching the mind, the hallmark of Zen, finds apt comparisons with the mindfulness of bees.  ~ Christopher Key Chapple, Doshi Professor of Indic and Comparative Theology, Loyola Marymount University, Editor of Buddhism and Ecology and Yoga and Ecology
