Bees and the Ancient Mysteries

In an extraordinary exposition, Lorenzen—an expert beekeeper and student of contemporary spiritual science – describes the Logos mysteries, based at the ancient temple of Artemis in Ephesus, where priestesses were known as “Melissas” (honeybees), while the sacrificial priests were called “Essenes” (bee kings). These cultic mysteries, he says, bore remarkable parallels to the workings of a bee ...

The World of Bees

“The whole hive is really pervaded by the life of love. The individual bees relinquish love but develop it instead throughout the hive. And so we start to understand bee existence if we recognize that the bee lives in an air, an atmosphere, that is entirely impregnated with love.” —Rudolf Steiner From time immemorial, bees have fascinated human culture. Mythic pictures and writings tell of our ...

The Spiritual Foundations of Beekeeping

The honeybee has lived in close association with human beings for millennia. Tragically, however, humanity’s once intimate connection with this unique creature has been harmed by our increasingly utilitarian and exploitative dealings with the natural world. We are now in urgent need of re-establishing a deeper relationship, not just for the sake of the bees themselves but for the whole of ...

The Genius of Bees and the Elemental Beings

“The most important task of the bees, apart from the preparation of honey, wax and propolis, is the healing of the atmosphere! The honeybee, apis mellifera, alone, is able to perform this task. This is its first and foremost purpose.” —Ralf Roessner Describing the genius of bees as the hive’s “group consciousness,” Ralf Roessner presents an extraordinary commentary based on first-hand ...

Toward Saving the Honeybee

The first edition of this book was published in 2002, four years before the term “Colony collapse disorder” was coined to describe the widespread and growing crisis of honeybee population loss. Yet this decrease in the honeybee population has been ongoing from at least the mid-twentieth century; and as we approach the third decade of the twenty-first century, with each passing year the situation ...

Sensitive Beekeeping

“I am convinced that, for the moment, the most common point of view is: ‘How little can we spend on the bees and still get them to make honey?’ If some beekeeper says, ‘Feed them sugar water,’ their point of view must be: ‘Because it’s cheaper than honey.’ If not, then they are just repeating what they have been told without having their own point of view. No one who bases their thinking about ...

Muck and Mind

A healthy culture implies a healthy agriculture. Beyond the technology and use of machines, today rapidly developing technology (i.e., “genetic engineering”) extends into the realm of life, which we can, and therefore do, manipulate for the ostensibly noble purpose of feeding the people of the world. Life, however, is not mechanical. To begin to comprehend life, something is desperately ...

Biodynamic, Organic and Natural Winemaking

We constantly notice when we are out talking to winemakers in different wine regions that more and more producers pay attention to how what they do in the vineyard affects the environment. Many winemakers that we meet start the process of 'converting' to organic farming. There are rules for what that means—what an organic farmer can do and what is forbidden—rules that come both from public or ...
