The objective of this course is for participants to come away with an understanding of both the spiritual and physical conditions that the bees need for their health and vitality, and to learn the beekeeping and land care methods that can serve these conditions. Personal relationship with the bees will be developed through lectures, meditative exercise, artistic work, group discussion, and Goethean studies, and participants will be supported in developing sanctuary in their own communities.
This course is taught in four stand-alone in-person learning modules, which do not have to be attended in order. Participants can choose the dates for one of each module that work best for their life and schedule when registering.
- Spring Module: 3-Day Experience
- Summer Module: 5-Day Learning Immersion
- Autumn Module: 3-Day Experience
- Winter Module: 5-Day Learning Immersion
All in-person modules are held on the grounds of the Spikenard Sanctuary and are from 9AM – 5PM each day.
The course also includes optional on-line learning and support.
