Energy Healer Performs a Ritual Dance With Over 10,000 Honey Bees Covering Her Body

National Geographic recently profiled Sara Mapelli, an energy healer and Bee Queen (see previously), who performed and explained the origins and process of her unique bee dance for them.

While wearing the queen of the hive, Mapelli is surrounded by 10,000 bees, creating what she describes as a meditative atmosphere of movement, energy, and sound. Mapelli uses this dance to build awareness of the importance of bees and all of nature and to allow people who are scared of bees to confront their fears. She sees the dance as a tool for healing.
