This is the second edition of a uniquely empowering, international word-of-mouth best seller about wild landscapes, female mythology, and the challenges facing modern women. It is a book for any woman who has ever lost her way and who sees a wasteland at the heart of modern existence and longs to live a more authentic, rooted life once again.

What a book!!!!
I had this book in my wish list for a while, I hesitated because of other reviews criticism of the narrator.
I AM SO GLAD I IGNORED THEM!!
This is one of the most profound and immersive and transformational books I have listened to.
I felt every word.
Beautifully written and clearly read. Maybe because I am British I didn’t mind the narrators voice, but the power of the words would have moved me no matter who read it.
This book has changed me forever.

The most joyful emanation produced by a colony of bees is known as the "song of increase" - declaring that the hive is flourishing and the bees are happy in its abundance. Song of Increase takes us inside the world of the honeybee to glean the wisdom of these fascinating creatures with whom humanity has shared a sacred bond for millennia. Within these minutes is a bee-centric approach to living with honeybees, rather than advice for simply maximizing the products they provide.

I am so grateful for this beautiful book!
A blessed insight into the hive and heart of the bees. It was almost a meditative practice listening to it.
I am feeling so much more connected to the bees and more determined than ever to help their cause.
