The Path of Pollen is a vibrant and vital gynocentric shamanic tradition that works with the honeybee and the hive as its central motif and living glyph. Due to its gynocentricity, all the teaching events offered are taught for women, by women.
These courses are progressive, and those women wishing to undertake any of the advanced Path of Pollen courses must first complete The Way of the Melissae workshop which is typically offered twice each year. These advanced courses cover diverse bodies of teaching and include The Trembling Veil & The Roar of the Roses, The Lyceum of the Lower Mouth and Secret Sister & Spirit Spouse. In 2012 a ten day Path of Pollen retreat – Melissae Lyceum Lectorum – was added to the curriculum which is open by invitation, with the one-year training Arte Triptych Melissae being open by application. Those women who complete the one-year training may also apply to undertake an advanced three year training, Return of the Pythoness.
