Literary Nonfiction. A MONK IN THE BEEHIVE introduces and carries the reader to a higher octave of beekeeping. It has been called forth by the need for a recognition of the forces informing all of life itself. Drawing on her experiences as a Buddhist monk, Skye ann louise Taylor is adroit in her perception and application of sacred principles to life in the bee hive. Sacred geometry, astronomy, sacred queens and holy drones meld and swirl together in hives made of wood that resonate with the underlying formative forces moving throughout the hive and its surrounds. A MONK IN THE BEEHIVE is a book for a twenty-first century connection to all things bee.
Skye has been a seeker since childhood of the Divine. She found it early on in nature and then, at the age of 37, joined the San Francisco Zen center to become a monk. Meditation showed her the Divine within. In the winter of 2006, Bee visited her meditation and persisted in gaining her attention. That visitation resulted in this book.
