Beauty and the Bees

The transforming power of facing fear

Jocasta Boone

What subconscious stream calls a person into facing fears and dancing with the bees? Jumping into bee keeping was something of a surprise to Debbie Wilson.

A small group of Dialoguers landed at Debbie’s beehives as part of an exploration into local food. Emanating from a Peterborough Dialogues Dojo Circle a community dinner came alive. Through 10 days in preparation we gathered guests, prepared the place, and received food from local farmers and neighbours’ gardens. Honey came our way by Debbie’s hands and attention to her bees.

Of course, there is a story … of beauty and bees. It tells of facing fears, healing the land, and caring for this place we call home.
