Nära nyskick. Bee shamanism may well be the most ancient and enigmatic branch of shamanism. It exists throughout the world - wherever, in fact, the honeybee exists. Its medicinal tools - such as honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly - are now in common usage and even the origins of Chinese acupuncture can be traced back to the ancient practice of applying bee stings to the body's meridians. In this authoritative ethnography and spiritual memoir, Simon Buxton, an elder of the Path of Pollen, reveals for the first time the richness of this tradition: its subtle intelligence; its sights, sounds and smells; and its unique ceremonies, which, until now, have been known only to initiates. Buxton unknowingly took his first steps on the Path of Pollen at age nine, when a neighbour - an Australian bee shaman - cured him of a near-fatal bout of encephalitis. This early contact prepared him for his later meeting with an elder of the tradition who took him on as an apprentice. Following an intense initiation that opened him to the mysteries of the hive mind, Buxton learned over the next 13 years the practices, rituals and tools of bee shamanism.
