The Sacred Bee - Part 1
New Releases • 57m
Designed for world religions classes but useful for philosophy, psychology, pedagogy, theology, chaplaincy, thanatology, spiritual studies, meditation / yoga groups and adherents of all major faiths, The Sacred Bee film series offers a ground-breaking paradigm that gently unites the world’s major faiths, using the mental construct of the honeybee and her exemplary life, transposed as a model of excellence in the consideration and approach to the spiritual life.
What does the honeybee do? It takes the essence from each flower. We visit each major world religion and using the model of the honeybee, take the essential from it; its qualities and virtues. How does one know what a faith's hallmark qualities and virtues are? Whatever was said about the honeybees or her products of the hive, in that spiritual tradition, is like a mirror. Upon analysis it reflects that faith’s major qualities.
Part 1 explains the importance of a sacred attitude, why bother having one, the importance of honeybees and the fascinating mirror analogy of honeybees in the Judaic, Christian and Buddhist faiths where they are also shown to be the model adherents of each faith symbolically as they are not human.
