Mycelium Bees & Stardust: Central Mysteries of Living Love Revolution
Mycelium Bees & Stardust are the central mysteries of the Living Love Revolution. What does this mean? In 2009 Reverend Ciacchi began to understand that the kinds of intelligences, and wisdoms, that humans need more of is not being generated only by other humans. She began to see that there were three non-human sources that had vitally important intelligences to share. She chose to focus on Mycelium, Bees and Stardust as her teachers at that time.
Here is the best of the media consumed and/or created by Living Love Revolution in the past month
Here is a small update on what we have noticed on how Mycelium, Bees and Stardust are BEING in the multiverse or showing up in human consciousness
“Mycelium are the soil magicians: turning death into fertile loam; transferring resources underground from one being to the next; forming the mycelial mat that sustains us all” ~ Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi
Working with our Elders, Our Ancestors and, with Death helps us be more like Mycelium
Honoring our Queer Elders & Peers:

The bees can teach us how to work with our hearts in energetic embodiment practices that bring us together as a functioning focused and loving community. “Bees are the radiant heart field of the Gaiaic Bodies” ” ~ Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi
Interpersonal NeuroBiology is teaching us how to heal and how to be a hive of humans around the pheromones of Mama Gaia. Here is a gathering of Dan Siegel and other top Neuroscientists doing their best to help us evolve, all of these links and talks are free:
Neuroscience Summit hosted on line by Sounds True May 10-26th
Artists like Artaud & Alli help us enter our own bodies more deeply & follow our hearts
Quote from Antonin Artaud posted by Antero Alli on FB
“If our life lacks a constant magic, it is because we choose to observe our acts and lose ourselves in consideration of their imagined form instead of being impelled by their force. No matter how loudly we clamor for magic in our lives, we are really afraid of pursuing an existence entirely under its influence and sign.” – Antonin Artaud
Antero Alli’s movie The Invisible Forest is about many things and is in part based on the work of Antonin Artaud and an exploration of dream states. It will be showing at Clinton St Theater May 26, 2016
If I understand him accurately, Antero Alli’s paratheatrical work is very much in line with my understandings of the “magicks –that-Bees-ARE”. I mean that the paratheatrical methods cause people to access their non-Beta states of consciousness required for us to truly begin to do ritual and be in a state of being that is “We Consciousness”.
For this reason I place the blog about Antero Alli and his works here in the Bees section of the media stream
Speaking of learning how to bee: we want to bee a hive of bees floating on the pheremonal directions of Mama Earth:
Oh, the Garden!

Hyperbole and a Half Blog by Allison If you experience depression or have friends who do, this is relevant.
We will end here with another wonderful film about Honey Bees by Michael Joshin Thiele of Gaiabees
Understanding that we are channels for the Divine and that we must both re-write and embody new mythologies as well as learn to think and behave constellation-ally is a central part of the Living Love Revolution.” ” ~ Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi
“The world is holy. We are holy. All life is holy. Daily prayers are delivered on the lips of breaking waves, the whisperings of grasses, the shimmering of leaves.” ― Terry Tempest Williams
Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes was a pivotal book in my personal history and now many years later I know quite a few women who work with wolves directly. I think that wolves and Women are sacred! Here, I share what Christiane Pelmas and a few other women are doing to preserve their own wildness.
Worshipping Aphrodite: Art and Cult in Classical Athens
By Rachel Rosenzweig p.29
“Aphrodite’s epithet en Kepois (in the Gardens) conjures up idyllic scenes of fragrant blosoms, sapling trees, and birds and honeybees flying about. Indeed, Aphrodite has been called “diagnostically floral.”
1 This aspect of the goddess, which is well represented in Attic vase painting by the Meidian school’s numerous depictions of Aphrodite in “Paradise gardens,” is also familiar from literature. The poet of the Cypria captures the essence of Aphrodite holding court in her gardens
2: She clothes herself with garments which the Graces and Hours had made for her and dyed in flowers of spring-such flowers as the Seasons wear-in crocus, hyacinth and flourishing violet and the rose’s lovely bloom, so sweet and delicious, and heavenly buds, the flowers of narcissus and lily. In such perfumed garments is Aphrodite clothed at all seasons. Then laughter-loving Aphrodite and her handmaidens wove sweet-smelling crowns of flowers of the earth and put them on their heads- the bright-coiffed goddesses, the Nymphs and Graces, and golden Aphrodite too, while they sag sweetly on the mount of many fountained Ida.”
From Greek & Roman Mythology by Karl Pomeroy Harrington & Herbert Cushing 1897Anything that is likely to please a divinity may be offered as a gift (ava Onua). Appropriate gifts would be, first, objects as are used in acts of worship or for the adornment of a temple; secondly, such as possess a particular value for the person offering them. But the most common of all gifts to the gods was the offering of food and drink. Such offerings consisted of all the things that please the taste of man himself; for originally physical enjoyment was presupposed even in the case of the gods. At a later time the burning of the offering , the vapor and smoke, at least exhaling an agreeable odor, were made to ascend to the realm of the celestials.”

Sacred Sexuality is a Stardust affair:
Two of my favorite people are coming to Surrender! They will be leading a Sacred Sex Magick experience in Lilith’s Forest.
Evoë Thorne and Harold S. Henry are blessed to dance through life together. As individuals they have pursued paths of knowledge, passion, and mystery. As a team they delve deeper than either of them ever imagined possible. Hand in hand they are navigating raising complicated fierce children, forging sensual magical connections, taking stewardship of their land, questioning everything, laughing in the wind, and creating an empire of love.
Evoë is the sex maven behind WholeSexLife, a project aimed at changing the way some people think about sex as something removed from normal life. She is a writer of erotica, photographer of nude bodies in the wild, and parent to five incredible people. She holds a third degree in the Novan tradition, founded Spiral Scouts for the ATC in 1999, and currently finds her spiritual path within and everywhere. Evoë’s energy is currently fueling her goal of becoming a sex therapist.
Harold likes to pose the questions people would love to answer if only someone would ask. His website sex-is-sacred begins to touch upon some of those topics. He is High Priest of the Green Star Grove of the Sylvan tradition with his wife Melanie. Harold is a deep thinker, spawning endless interesting ideas and plans of a dubious nature.
