Bee Dancer : Bee Queen

In this video I, Sara Mapelli, am dancing with 12,000 honey bees. This is my second bee dance and I am planing a third. I think of this dance as a duet among many. The bees push with their powerful wings from each side of my body, I resist and then I let go and flow and move with them. It is a deep meditation and I feel the hive mind surround me, hold me, and expand my body on a cellular level. I am a healer, dancer, artist, builder of structures and bee keeper. As a bee keeper my partner and I hope to help the bees of the northwest by encouraging them to swarm and become hardy to the ever changing environment.

I have been helping people heal for 21 years. To read more about my in office and long distant sessions visit
