    1. Sadly, this book is not just fiction masquerading as fact, it is also a case of plagiarism and intellectual theft.The blurb tells us that it reveals “the ancient tradition of bee shamanism and its secret practices and teachings”. It also claims to be a personal “spiritual memoir” which “reveals for the first time” “the secret wisdom of this age-old tradition.”If this is the case then why is it that many of the secret teachings of this ancient tradition are in fact lifted word-for [...]


    2. Long before I knew there was controversy swirling around this book, I began to suspect it was fiction. An interesting read but fiction. The problem is that it presents itself as non-fiction. Why do I think it is fiction? A gut feeling based on a lifetime of critical reading -- something about the stock characters. Something about the total recall - in stunning detail - the character claims to have of what he describes as very deep trances induced by physically demanding initiation rites. Could t [...]


    3. Gripping and entrancing.A shamanic tradition rooted in my homeland is always bound to interest me, as is any exploration which doesn't pull the punches about how dirty, dangerous and visceral the realities of such a journey are.This superbly does the job.


    4. I have some seriously weird "shamanic" books telling supposedly true stories of people's experiences that anyone skeptical by nature is going to be skeptical of. I believe some of them and others I just enjoy the storytelling and don't worry about how much is true. This one is way down on the believability scale. It is unintentionally funny in parts it is so far out. Anyway, I got a kick out of reading it but tend to think of it as totally made up. I could be wrong. :)


    5. Part of me wants to say that Simon Buxton is a really good writer and his journey was incredible. The other part wants to say that either it's completely made-up bullshit or just a group of crazy folks doing lots of hallucinogens. Any way you look at it, it was fun to read.



    6. i loved this book so hard. simon buxton's story of his visionquest, guided by a wise bee shaman, can give us all inspiration for digging deep within ourselves and staying true to our course -- or even discovering the parts of us that need to heal. i learned a lot about bees and beekeeping and the history of the path of pollen. i highly recommend this quick but engaging read to anyone seeking a different point of view on life, death, and how our earth and its inhabitants can find renewal and heal [...]



    7. According to some reviews I read, this book has been plagerized. (sorry for my spelling) Originating from P.L.Tavers the woman who wrote Marry Poppins. The book is interesting though, and now I want to read P.L. Tavers.


    8. This was recommende d and borrowed from the guy who runs the farmers market where I sell my eggs. One day we got talking about bee keeping and he suggested I read this book. He seems to be very into spirituality and other worldly topics in this book.Not having a deep background knowledge of shamanism, I think some parts of this book were over my head. I was really uninterested after scanning the summary on the back and Tori Amos quote on the front cover. However, due to the vigor in which this w [...]


    9. Darkness was visible right before the '97 crash of Diana and the Harrods heird right before 911. Simon brought Merilyn Tunneshende to England for guidance during that time and they had a falling out over sexual indulgences which she did not recommend as a part of eros or the sacred. He was not trust worthycertainly not the only oned essentially recycled all of their effortsd all that they had sharedd all that had transpired during that time his own fancy. He held witch hunts and then wanted the [...]


    10. I've always had a fascination with bees and bee-keeping. This book does give a few insights into the art of bee-keeping but it delves much more into the Path of Pollen, a little-known (or, perhaps, never before heard of) European shamanic tradition that provides the scaffolding for the more pragmatic art of honey-making. It is a tale of initiation and secrets though it never quite explains why such a closely-guarded tradition is now being revealed. It does go pretty far out there even for me and [...]


    11. When I started my beginner;s beekeeper class 1, this book was recommended to me to read.If I wasn't interested in beekeeping before, I would be after reading this masterpiece of themystic's path through Nature's magical bees. This book begins with a man who is a beginner on the path of a beekeeper. He, through the fates, comes across one of the very few Shaman Beekeeper. But he is so much more! He sees a bee mark this beginner on a special part of his body, which shows him that he is chosen by t [...]


    12. The book starts out interesting, but half way through I started wondering why he was going into such detail about a practice that had been kept secret for thousands of years? And then it got weirder and weirder - there wasn't just one initiationey went on and on and on and became increasingly stranger. Finally I started poking around on the internet and found some interest stuff - most of it opinions from others that may or may not be true, but one that that is true is that much of what the Bee [...]


    13. Listen, I know the controversy surrounding this novel. I was so heartbroken upon that discovery that I stopped reading altogether, as if I had been betrayed by something I came to love so deeply. I really, truly loved this book and I have come to the conclusion that, fabrication or not (I want to fully do my own research on this), it contains some hard truths. If one finds it hard to believe in the ritual or the actual happenings of his Learnings, the things he SAYS, the connection to the honeyb [...]


    14. I was spoken so highly if this book that I guess my expectations were truly high. U need to be prepared for over the top narration a of what occurs to the character. I feel it's a spiritual book for someone who sees things from that perspective. As a bee keeper, I wasn't quite pulled in as others may have been. My live for bees is there -- my live for this writing was not.


    15. Wow. Two thirds of the way through it becomes more than I expected. A real treat for those interested in the indigenous European/Britannia shamanic tradition as it was probably practiced pre-inquisition pre-Christian influence. Glad to know that it has been transmitted from one master to another in continuity. Beautiful.


    16. I was not sure if I wanted to give this book 3 stars, or 4. There were parts that I found beautiful and interesting, parts that I truly enjoyed; however, there were other pieces which I found bland and unnecessary. All in all, I am glad that I took the time to dig into The Shamanic Way of the Bee, and walk away with a little bit of understanding that I didn't have before.


    17. Despite my initial misgivings (the Tori Amos cover blurb, the fruity magickal language), I enjoyed reading this story of a modern man's initiation into an ancient tradition. Scenes range from odd to fantastic, provoking my skeptical side. But it did make me wish a little that I were British, and reared on the purest source of fairy tales.


    18. There is so much information and spirituality in the pages of this book of a man's journey into the ancient practice of bee-keeping through the "Path of Pollen" - It was a great adventure and a great read!


    19. It is likely many passages in this book hav been plagiarized. Here is a review that sites a number of passages in the book and where they are copied from for you to read: /topic/show/1


    20. Pretentious hallucinatory fluff, most likely published as a joke on all of us foolish enough to read it. If it had contained even a shred of useful information on bees or beekeeping I would be more forgiving, but as it is.


    21. While I found this book slow to start I was drawn into a world I had never considered before and have come to understand and have a greater reverence for The Bee culture and Bee Cult history and continued sharing of it`s mysteries and knowledge.


    22. This is an amazing tale of the journey into the realm of spirit and it tells of a tradition thought lost, great read and so inspiring. I am very excited about bees and their keeping and health benefits of honey, pollen and royal jelly. The Melissae training is definately calling me.




    23. Great book! Madly in love with bees, and really enjoyed reading Simon's perspective. I want bees more than ever now!!


    24. I wanted to like this, and the opening pages of the book certainly have a compelling hook, but I'm just not up for this much purple prose right now.


    25. Interesting read about a lineage of bee keepers in their mystical aspect. Having worked with bees a few years and having long had an affinity for them, I am intrigued by this autobiography.


    26. This book tells an amazing story about the path of pollen. It is a very entertaining read and true to life about many aspects of the world of the honeybees.
