Join Hive Sisters Nicole Burke and Ariella Daly at the luscious Goldenwell Sanctuary in Vermont for a week of dream ceremony, collective hive dreaming and dream incubation woven with the golden-black threads of the Path of Pollen, a European Honey Bee tradition.
GOLDEN WELL SANCTUARY IS A 170 ACRE ORGANIC FARM, APIARY, HEALING CENTER, RETREAT AND EVENT SPACE DEVOTED TO RE-POTENTIATING OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LIVING EARTH THROUGH CULTIVATING DEEPER AND MORE MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS BETWEEN NATURE, SPIRIT, SELF AND COMMUNITY.
Nicole, Gina and Ariella became fast friends while attending a workshop in Bath, England in 2015. Since then they have worked closely together in a three year advanced shamanic training for women at the Sacred Trust in England. Ariella, Gina and Nicole bond over their mutual love of nature connection, community cultivation, beekeeping and dreamwork. A typical conversation on the phone between any two always involves a dream share. They are sisters in the work, facilitators of women’s mysteries and fully committed to being change makers for the earth in changing times.
