Corwin has been passionately working with bees for over 14 years. He practices a holistic ?approach in caring for bees that focuses on enhancing the bee’s immune system ?through attentive listening, meditative communing, right timing and sustainable ?methods. In his courses he reveals a connection between bees and humankind as ?symbolic of a broader interconnection between humans and the natural world. ?Corwin promotes a "backyard" hive method and philosophy in which he encourages and inspires interested and willing individuals to connect with ?bees through an altruistic Guardianship that goes beyond hobbyist beekeeping. ?Bell travels widely giving lectures and workshops to raise awareness of honeybee ?genetic biodiversity and to promote alternatives to conventional beekeeping practices. ?His is currently working on a book The Bee Guardian, which delves into this approach.
