Hi, I’m Ariella!

 
 

I’m so happy the bees lead you to me. I’m not your average beekeeper. I’m a voice in the new wave of bee people devoted to the preservation of the bee in her own sovereignty. I’m also all about how the bees can help you and how in turn, you help the bees.

I’m here because I believe in the wild, divine power of nature as both teacher and healer. For me, honey bees are one of the great enigmas and wisdom teachers of the earth and I want to help you on your own journey into beekeeping and self-discovery through bee wisdom.

 

What’s my deal?

I came to beekeeping through some serendipity, some heartbreak, and some soul searching.  I am a bee tender, a bee enthusiast and have a fascination with the cultural and historical practices, myths and beliefs around bees and beekeeping.  Sometimes I travel too; I find honeybees wherever I go.

I have been tending hives for the past nine years.  I primary use top bar hives, but have experience with Langstroth & Warré (the later pictured left).  I work closely with beekeepers and people who work with the hive on a symbolic/metaphorical level.

For the last 10 years I have studied extensively under The Path of Pollen, a shamanic honey bee tradition based in the British Isles.  I integrate Path of Pollen techniques and practices into all my bee tending, courses and workshops.  The Path of Pollen does not teach beekeeping as we know it today, but works with the honey bee as a living symbol, ally and motif. 

What about Beekeeping?

 
 

My approach to beekeeping falls under the labels of natural and bee-centric beekeeping.  I am primarily interested in the relationship between beekeeper and bees, what we can learn from the hive as a colony and what we can offer to the bees, both in a single hive and as a species.  I assist clients in the basics of hive maintenance, learning how to care for bees, and developing a relationship to the honey bee.  My goal is to empower clients to eventually work with their honey bee colonies on their own and to use the human-nature relationship to delve deeper into their own soul.  While my style focuses on a more feminine approach than is currently practiced in the commercial beekeeping world, I happily work with clients of any gender.  And of course, most of the time, I tend my hives dressed in skirts.
