Courtney Cosgriff, Certified Nutritionist (CN) and Certified Clinical Herbalist (CCH), discusses the vital importance of honey bees in our food systems and pollinators in general in our ecosystems. As the founder of HoneybeeHerbals.co, and an initiate of the College of the Melissae, Courtney also shares some of the ancient traditions of sacred bee-keeping found in Cretan, Minoan, Greek, and other Mediterranean cultures. She reveals how “honey is alchemy,” and “bees are wisdom-collectors.” From the Temple of Karnak, near Luxor, Egypt, to the teachings of Hippocrates, and from ancient Indian wisdom that regards the buzzing of bees to be the Sound of Celestial Creation, to the national bee-keeping practices in Slovenia, and to teaching courses at the GrowHaus in Denver, Colorado, Courtney traverses time and space in this delightful exploration of our sacred connection with the honey bees.
