2021: CREATING CULTURE FOR AN INSPIRED FUTURE

BEES, DREAMS & MEDICINE

CREATING CULTURE FOR AN INSPIRED FUTURE

Inspired by the scholarship and leadership of the Melissae (ancient bee priestesses and oracles), we invite you to meet select luminaries and international thought leaders, who share insights, visions, and dreams for a new tomorrow.

During this yearlong online series, we meander through a labyrinth of Science, Sacred, His-/Herstory, Mystery, Art/Medicine, and Activism— the pillars that comprise the College of the Melissae.

Amid troubled times, together we ask:

Who are we?

Where did we come from?

And how can we recreate our cosmology?
