Explore the hidden depths of your Interior Garden through the ancient European tradition of bee shamanism — as you learn to intentionally dream within the Dream Weave to dive deeper into your creativity, intuition, and healing.
As a shamanic dreamer, you can enter the dreamworld to connect with your guides, travel across time and space, and return to your waking life with newfound wisdom, insight, and inspiration.
And when you connect with honeybees as your guides in your dreams, you can develop a deeper relationship with yourself, Spirit, and the Earth.
Bee shamanism has its roots in Celtic Britain, Lithuania, and ancient Greece, where it experienced a golden age among the bee priestesses known as the Melissae, which translates to “Bees.”
In these days of uncertainty, change, and imbalance in our relationship with the Earth, bee shamanism holds powerful truths and insights you can apply to your daily life right away.
Join us for a fascinating 7-week course with Ariella Daly, dream teacher, healer, and bee guardian, and delve into the bee shamanism tradition, The Path of Pollen.
You’ll be invited to dream with the Melissae, or bee priestesses of ancient Greece, and bring the wisdom of the Sacred Feminine into your own intuitive being.
You’ll explore the hidden depths of your Interior Garden through the ancient European tradition of bee shamanism. You’ll learn to dream intentionally within your dreams — to deepen your own creativity, intuition, and healing.
Intentional dreaming is an element of shamanic work beloved by many folk traditions, including European bee shamanism. As you’ll discover, when you choose to intentionally dream with spirit allies such as the honeybees and the Melissae, you learn to engage with the more-than-human world of guides, messengers, and symbols. These dream allies can lead you deeper into your inner wisdom, healing, and self-discovery.
In this 7-week journey, Ariella will guide you through fundamental practices of intentional dreaming with the honeybees — with the three Sisterhoods of the Melissae as your guides — using practices, motifs, and teachings from the European bee shamanism tradition.
Through this ancient tradition, you’ll discover the potent insights of your own Interior Garden, and connect more deeply to your body to unlock profound wisdom — about everything from the cosmos to the personal inner work you’re meant to embark on.
In this illuminating 7-week course, you’ll experience:
- Our ancient ties to the honeybee as allies and sacred guides
- Bee shamanism approaches to intentional dreaming, and how you can use it to guide and inform your life
- The practice of Dreaming With Bees and the nature of the Dream Weave
- More of who the Melissae of ancient Greece were and why they’re relevant now
- Working with the 3 sisterhoods of the bee tradition
- Dream practices with the Interior Garden for self-gnosis (self-knowledge), healing, and revelation
- Techniques for revisiting dreams for further discovery
- Breathing exercises for deepening into your body as a dreaming vessel
- The primary movement meditation for bee flight and the landscape of infinity
- How to develop your intuition through dreams and your body’s wisdom
- And much more…
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks
In this 7-week transformational intensive, Ariella will guide you through the fundamental body-mind-spirit skills you’ll need to access truth, intuition, and healing through intentional dreaming with bee shamanism.
The Power of Live Streaming Video
You’ll connect with Ariella and experience her teachings through live streaming video. This connection is easy to use and will enhance the impact of Ariella’s transmissions. Or you can easily connect just via audio if you choose — through any connected device.
You’ll receive parts of this course as a purely auditory experience. Because bee shamanism is an oral tradition passed down over generations, Ariella wants you to receive these teachings in a similar way. This will stretch your imagination and memory, which improves your dreaming and your dream recall.
(Can’t make it live? No worries! After each class, the video and audio recordings will be available for you to download or stream in high-quality format at your convenience.)
Weekly Sessions Mondays at 11:00am Pacific
This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Ariella. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to tap into bee shamanism to connect more deeply to your body and unlock profound wisdom.
Module 1: Dreaming With Bees & the Shamanic Tradition of the Path of Pollen (July 12)
Your dreams are a world you can cultivate.
By working with the honeybees as guides — and through intentional dreaming — you can develop a profound relationship with yourself, Spirit, and the animate Earth.
In this opening session, Ariella will introduce the tradition of European bee shamanism. She’ll share how dreaming with bees can uniquely affect your dream state. You’ll explore the importance of honeybees as sacred beings in the ancient world and European folklore. And, you’ll come to realize why bees are so important to humankind now.

Through an oral teaching method meant to help you cultivate both the imagination and the body’s innate wisdom, Ariella will share about Earth dreaming and the Dream Weave.
You’ll also practice a technique called Sensory Recapitulation to aid in both dream recall and memory development.
You’ll be guided in a meditation that uses a breathing technique to support your connection with the animate Earth and the vast cosmos.

Module 3: The Interior Garden — Cultivating Embodied Dreaming With the Heart (July 26)
Over the next three sessions, you’ll dive into the heart of this course — dreaming in the garden of the hive.
You’ll explore the Path of Pollen teaching of your Interior Garden and discover how attention to the garden can bring physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing — and aid in the development of intuition, creativity, wisdom, and divine revelation.
This week, you’ll center your practice around the heart, approaching this exquisite knowledge center with both intentional dreaming and heart-flowering practices meant to deepen your intuition and support wellbeing.
This portion of the course will be very experiential, with deep and imaginative listening to the whispering of your Interior Garden. To aid in your heart flowering, you’ll work with the Sisterhood of the Wise Maidens as spirit allies that will infuse love into your dreaming.
By learning to develop your embodied seership in waking, you’ll enhance and enrich what Spirit and imagination can bring to your night dreams.
This week, you’ll discover:
- Embodied dreaming and how it can benefit you
- The Interior Garden as a map for self-knowing
- The Sisterhood of the Wise Maidens and their library of wisdom
- How to dream with the rose of the heart
- A guided exercise for cultivating the wisdom of the heart center
Module 4: The Lemniscate & Cultivating Embodied Dreaming From Above (August 2)
This week you’ll continue with your Interior Garden explorations, turning now toward the brow... where you’ll explore the wisdom of the cosmos and all that is above. You’ll be joined by the Sisterhood of the Spinners to infuse your seeing and dreaming.
To aid in this practice, Ariella will introduce you to the symbol of the bees’ dance, known as the lemniscate and commonly pictured as a figure eight. You’ll use this symbol as a multipurpose tool for energy work and connection with the hive within.
We will also engage in a dream mirroring or dream discovery technique meant to bypass interpretation and go straight to the wisdom of Spirit speaking through you and your imagination.
In this module, you’ll:
- Dreaming with the rose of the brow
- Experience listening to the stars and listening to the brow
- Explore the lemniscate as a living symbol and guide
- Learn about the Sisterhood of the Spinners and their weaving magic
- Be exposed to a dream mirror demonstration and be guided in a practice for body-informed intuition
Module 5: Nature as Beloved & Cultivating Embodied Dreaming From Below (August 9)
In this session, you’ll come to your final rose of exploration, connecting with the wisdom of the Earth and the sacral center. You’ll continue with your experiential practices of body-informed seeing, and meet the Sisterhood of the Fey — the dream bringers.
In this session, you’ll experience:
- Listening to the Earth and listening to the belly
- The continuation of the body-informed intuition technique
- A practice for exploring messages from your dream voices
- The Sisterhood of the Fey and nature connection
- Dreaming with the rose of the sacral center
Module 6: The Walk of Infinite Flight (August 16)
In this session, you’ll begin the work of integration, and receive a primary bee shamanism practice — The Walk of Infinite Flight. The Walk has many other names and applications, but the primary teaching remains the same.
This session will be dedicated to learning and experiencing this movement meditation, both as a dreamwork tool and as a vehicle for many other forms of personal discovery, gnosis, harmony, healing, and communion with Spirit.
(Note: This session will require you to have a flat indoor space of about eight by four feet — a bit larger than a yoga mat.)
In this module, you’ll:
- Receive the power of The Walk of Infinite Flight guided practice
- Use The Walk of Infinite Flight as a tool for dream discovery and inner balance
Module 7: Integration — From Dreaming to Waking (August 23)
In this final session, you’ll review all you’ve learned and begin to weave it together in integration.
You’ll revisit The Walk of Infinite Flight as a tool for integration… and to bring the dream into reality.
Ariella designed this course to leave you feeling both curious and excited about future dreamwork — and full of material to integrate and digest with all the tools you’ve been given throughout the program.
In this closing session, you’ll discover:
- Integration techniques to bring all you’ve learned into your life

She holds a deeply nurturing and safe container for the students who have undertaken our events, and very much holds herself to a gold standard that makes working with her an absolute pleasure. The intimacy of her relationship to bee shamanism is tangible and underlines all that she transmits in her work.

— Gabriela Gutierrez, founder of the Virtual Temple
“Her skill and ability to support a group navigating through the dreamtime was excellent…”
The dreamwork courses I participated in with Ariella over the last couple of years have opened me up into a world of healing, insight, and homecoming that has touched me deeply and been a soothing balm for my soul. Her skill and ability to support a group navigating through the dreamtime was excellent and very professional, and I highly recommend the journeys she offers. Step into the dark with her and be illuminated!
— Carol, Ireland, movement facilitator
“There is life-changing power in the circles she creates and holds.”
“Each class session has filled my heart with soul poetry.”
Ariella’s dreamwork courses are magical and empowering. This is truly the best way to describe them! I am so grateful for Ariella’s ability to hold space for everyone just as they are, and for her gift in acting as a guide into the realm of mystery and inner knowing. Each class session has filled my heart with soul poetry. This healing balm has been an incredible treasure that’s continued to unfold in my waking life, as well as in the dreamtime. Within these courses, I have learned so much about herstory, symbolism, myth, and magic, in addition to our responsibility of being in relationship with the earth and our fellow creatures. I have also learned a great deal about how to tune in to my own place of intuition and how to trust myself. Thank you so much for setting a beautiful example with your authentic and genuine expression of this work!
— Breanna, Washington
“I highly recommend working with her in whatever capacity you are called to!”
I was fortunate to take two classes from Ariella. Both were powerful transformational experiences for me. Due to various reasons I had not dreamt much for a long period of time, and Ariella’s classes helped me touch back into my dreaming self again. She is an excellent space holder with the depth of her wisdom and gentle presence. I highly recommend working with her in whatever capacity you are called to! Ariella is a rare gem of a teacher and I’m so grateful to have experienced her work.
— Tara, Hawaii
“During our time together I witnessed myself open to new possibilities, new perspectives, and new interpretations…”
Ariella’s Dreaming With Bees class is a delicious communion of inner and outer realms, the way she weaves together the gifts of the hive. The whole experience offered me a taste of bee magic and encouraged me to discover more of their medicine on my own. During our time together I witnessed myself open to new possibilities, new perspectives, and new interpretations of the symbols curated by the bees and their gentle spirits. Every week was a sweet reminder of why I’m committed to serving the honeybee in dreaming and waking hours, and how to continue walking between the worlds. I would recommend this course for anyone who is even slightly intrigued by bees, dreaming, or magic!
— Karla, Oregon
“The most magical things in my waking life transpired during my first dream course with Ariella.”
“Ariella has a unique ability to bring together the like-minded…”
Ariella has a unique ability to bring together the like-minded; you don’t realize she’s done it until you’re chatting away with strangers who feel like friends, bonding over your deepest dreams. She’s very much a matriarch in this way, as anyone who understands the quiet power of a true queen bee would agree.
— Holly H.
“Ariella blends a beautiful togetherness of both insight and wisdom throughout the courses she holds.”
Ariella blends a beautiful togetherness of both insight and wisdom throughout the courses she holds. The reflection she provided allowed me to see myself in an honest and expanded way. I have participated in her To Bee Acquainted, Dreaming With Bees, and Betwixt and Between, and have enjoyed and been nourished by each offering.
— B., Canada
“This work isn’t just an enriching experience — it’s profound healing at the source.”
I took Ariella’s Dreaming With Bees course earlier this year and have continued to do private sessions with her regularly ever since. This work isn’t just an enriching experience — it’s profound healing at the source. As an herbalist, I’ve come to believe that the roots of disharmonies in the physical body manifest first as disharmony in the subtle body at the spiritual and emotional levels. What I find special about Ariella’s work is that she guides you towards the ability to further tap into your own intuition so you can gain tools to continue to connect with your own spirit, your deep self, all while connecting very deeply with the beautiful and mystical subtleties of the natural world. As you embark on this journey, you’ll find deep healing that will impact your relationship to yourself first, and then to the rest of the world around you. I can’t recommend her or her classes enough. Truly life-changing.

More Praise for Ariella Daly…
“She is clearly an EYE, an anchor of manifestation, the voice of mystery and the Goddess, a keeper and steward of the INVISIBLE and visible realms.”
I have been blessed to live with a secret grove, apple orchards, and to walk amongst candelabra mullein giants. Spaces that hold secrets, medicine, mythology, and poetry — and that reconnect one with infinite beauty and their place in the ecology of Earth’s cosmos. They hold a poetic resonant balm that both calls you in and knows your soul. The work of Ariella holds such a FORCE. She is clearly an EYE, an anchor of manifestation, the voice of mystery and the Goddess, a keeper and steward of the INVISIBLE and visible realms. To participate in the ceremony of her offerings is to cross a starlit bridge into the dreams of the great mystery, and to once again commune with them in and out of time.
— Valentine Lovecraft Falcon, artist and healer, California
“She is endlessly curious and viscerally connected to the unseen realms and the magic of the bees.”
Ariella is magic. She shares new and ancient wisdom within a safe, and simultaneously earthy and otherworldly, container that invites a diving into dark spaces — and with that, profound healing. I’ve done a Dreaming With Bees retreat with her and the Betwixt and Between course. With both, I found my way into realizations, deep questions, and revealing insight. I felt held and expanded as she guided me in new ways to explore connection, bee magic, masculine and feminine principles, dreamwork, and liminal spaces. I appreciate Ariella’s ability to see, feel, intuit, and perceive things in ways that are entirely outside of the expected and come out of the moment. She is endlessly curious and viscerally connected to the unseen realms and the magic of the bees. And her knowledge, both shamanic and practical, around bees is amazing. The teachings and stories went deep. I love her and am so grateful for my time with her sinking into story, bees, dreaming practices, goddesses, self, and the liminal.
— Leigh, kitchen witch and ritualist, California
“I felt honored to be with such a numinous and wise teacher, who supercharged my own dreaming and shamanic practices.”
All of Ariella’s work is deeply spirit-driven and womb-driven. Having experienced both Betwixt and Between and Dreaming With Bees, I felt honoured to be with such a numinous and wise teacher who supercharged my own dreaming and shamanic practices. I learnt so much. This is important work, and it has a spiritual life and energy of its own, which goes above and beyond whatever you might expect of an online offering. 100% recommended.
— Lucy Coats, writer, England
“Ariella is a skilled facilitator who gracefully moves between sharing expansive ancient wisdom and weaving a communal space to work with dreams.”
For me, the experience of Dreaming With Bees was to be literally taken within the warmth and comfort of the hive. Ariella is a skilled facilitator who gracefully moves between sharing expansive ancient wisdom and weaving a communal space to work with dreams. I made contact with the bees through her class and have continued to communicate with them through my dreams. I learned a tremendous amount about dream mirroring through communal practice. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
— Jessica, artist and dreamworker
