Sacred Life

 

The Hive is a collective of women artists, priestesses, performers, and shamans that seek to awaken the empowered sacred feminine through multidisciplinary art installations, temple spaces, ritual theater, and voluntary hypnosis. Our offerings put the participant at the center of the artwork and asks them to engage with will and imagination to co-create individualized experiences of the sacred.

The Embodied Experience

The gentle thrum of bees draws you in. Soft bells at each corner, invitations to be rung. Inside offers soothing shade, an abundance of artwork and altar pieces, detailed so that you may find your own unique experience. A statue at the center invites you to take a sacrament of honey mead, sprinkling her with playa dust as blessing. Female-identifying participants will be guided into creating themselves as a Divine archetype and assisted in designing a ritual of worship around this embodiment. In the evening they will come to be anointed, massaged, and dressed in ritual garb. Then guided into an embodied state through hypnotic tools, theater, shamanism, and their own vital imagination. All citizens are invited to engage with these embodied women through their customized rituals.

 
Each hive is a collective of 60 thousand humming female worker bees. The ambrosia of royal jelly elevates one humble larva to become the treasured Queen.
