Thomas Merton a well known Christian Mystic said “What can we gain by sailing to the moon, if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves?”
The Beehive is the umbrella name for the work of John Doherty. The Beehive offers you the tools and practices needed to bridge anything that separates you from yourself, the world and the deeper aspects of a spiritual life. Spiritual in this context means looking and journeying inwards to find meaning, and an authentic connection with your deeper Self. There are workshops and retreats, classes and courses designed to empower you on a journey inwards that leads to a more authentic and contemplative lifestyle.
Eckhart Tolle author of “The Power of Now” says:
“The beginning of freedom is the realisation that you are not the thinker. The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You slowly realise that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realise that all the things that truly matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace – arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.”
John also offers 1-1 and group professional supervision supporting you in your work. This is a great way to “process” how the work is impacting on you and to keep learning, reflecting and growing professionally.
“At first I wasn’t sure what supervision was, but I knew I needed to deal with the stress my work was causing me. After contacting John and having a few 1-1 sessions I realized that not only did it help me deal with the stress but also I began to learn so much about my approach to my job that I had never thought of before. I learned about better boundaries, how to better manage my team and not to take my work home with me. I think this kind of professional development is essential in today’s demanding workplace and I’m glad I availed of this unique service.” Edward (GP)
