The Shamanic Way of the Bee:
Ancient Wisdom and Healing Practices of the Bee Masters
By Simon Buxton
A Review by Karl Schlotterbeck
What could be closer to a Druid’s heart than a relationship between Shamans and bees?
The Shamanic Way of the Bee tells the story of Simon Buxton’s initiation into the Path of Pollen and some of the practices of the bee masters. Saved from a childhood illness by one bee master, Buxton is later initiated into the Path of Pollen that he treads today. He gives us a sensual description of the relationship between bee and flower, the enticing activities of the women known as “Melissae” who are part of the tradition, and some of the symbols of this Path. The book is mostly story with some teachings of the tradition (like the relationship among stag, Pan, and the bees), but only a little applicable how-to information. So, read it for the story. It’s a good one.
