'The essential message of this eloquent book identifies our mindset as the root of the problems we are creating. How do we look at and understand the world? [...] This is a brilliant and penetrating study of the impact of our manipulative and emotionally impoverished Western mindset -- homo scientificus-economicus - and an urgent call to swarm our paradigms, pollinate the global mind and weave a new and compassionate eco-sphere of meaning.' -- The Paradigm Explorer 'If I was limited to recommend just one book to a new beekeeper, an experienced beekeeper or somebody who loves nature and wants to know more about the extraordinary honeybee, it would be Global Hive by Horst Kornberger... This book is full of hope, and the source of the hope is the exceptional honeybee and the relationships they share with each other and nature. Horst urges us to understand and preserve the bee, so that we might start the process of turning around this ailing planet, and so create a global hive. Looking back, I can say it fundamentally changed my relationship to bees and my general consciousness of all other relationships. I feel truly inspired by bees, not for their honey but for what we can learn from them. I cannot recommend this book enough.' -- Jonathan Powell, Natural Beekeeping Trust
