The Pixie Travelling Medicine Show brings to you celebration of the powerful and wild gifts of the plant world gathered and concentrated by the world's original plant medicine makers and original alchemists- the honeybees. Through the weekend we will learn how to draw from the honey bee and all the wildness she supports as not only our medicine, but also the base of all our medicine-making. We will taste the sweet medicine and magic of herbal infused honeys, honey wine, herbal potions, and bee based tinctures. 

Benjamin will be sharing stories of Bees as stewards of the fecundity of life and examples of alternative styles of civilization that promote diversity. 
Through myth, story and honey-tasting this class will imbue the sweet plant medicines of the bees while exploring the bitterness of our current experiments in civilization. We will discuss the poison and catastrophe of monoculture as exemplified by Colony Collapse Disorder. Through stories of powerful plants, pollinators and humans who remember, we will untangle the webs of death and amnesia to grieve the losses and celebrate the beauties of being alive in these times of great change.

While discussing the history of colonization, and doing the work of decolonization, we will focus on healing the damage to our world, psyches and bodies created by the poison idea of the human separation from the world- static ecosystems and invasive alien species. Through recognizing the medicines the plants have to offer to our ecosystems, bodies, souls, and lineages, this class will take steps to healing the wounds of poison, and xenophobia, and also to celebrate the beauty of diaspora while not forgetting it's casualties.
