Who is Bee Life Global ?

Bee Life is a Global Environmental Charity based in Bali, Indonesia facilitating the reconnection between humanity and nature through the wisdom and consciousness of the Bee.

By integrating the consciousness of the Bee and the hive mind, where everything we do, we do for the greater good of all, into our everyday life we are offering an invitation into a new yet ancient way of living from our heart, in harmony with nature.

 

What is Bee Life Global’s Vision?

As Bee Life Global expands, we intend to build the first Bee Sanctuary in Bali: a natural paradise for Bees and humans to thrive together. The Sanctuary will also serve as an operations base and environmental education center for Bee Life Global. Here we will offer Bee-led community activities promoting wellness, education and authentic connection that encourages reconnection and integration with nature.

 

What is Bee Life Global doing ?

  • The Project Proposals Bee Life Global generates are guided by the consciousness of the Bee.
  • Bee Life Global provides an infusion and amplification of the quantum nature of the Bee into our world, a living breathing heartfelt presence reminding us of our interconnection with all species and our Earthly ecosystem.
  • Bee Life Global collaborates primarily with businesses, schools and private homes to anchor the Bee frequency into these spaces for both personal and planetary health and wellbeing.
  • Supporting implementation of physical installations to provide sacred spaces where people may come to align their consciousness with the frequency of the Bee
  • The positive impact from living and working with Bees is immeasurable for both us and our environment.
  • We benefit on all levels: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually due to the medicine the Bee physically emanates and it’s pure embodiment of unity consciousness.
  • By simply sitting quietly with the Bee and its hive we are transformed. Our health improves; our hearts open; our awareness expands and deepens.
  • We offer two modes of installations depending on the recipients needs and capacity: Hives and Meditation Domes.
  • Both options are accompanied by educational training programs.

     Our Story

Bee Life’s central question is: How can we work with bees to support our human potential and encourage them to thrive?

Our body is a sophisticated gadget that as a species we are grossly underutilizing. The bees are here to guide us in optimizing our human potential for the well-being of all. Our physical lives depend on the bee for without them our ecosystem fails and the same is true for our spiritual survival. The expression of human power benevolently is equanimous to the presence of the bee. The more bees, the greater the soul on a collective level for these little creatures have an incredible way of connecting us to the individual and oversoul.

Bali’s connection to the bee is particularly special. In the Balinese language ‘nyawan’ means ‘bee’ whilst ‘nyawa’ means ‘soul’. Without nyawan there is no nyawa – no bees, no soul
