The Hive cultivates mindfulness which manifests as creativity and intentional social engagement. We do this through retreats, events, classes, and one-on-one direction, which we offer to our neighbors in Northside, Cincinnati, and the wider tri-state region. We also bring Pop Up Hive to your workplace and houses of faith.

There are lots of explanations for contemplation. We take it in the spirit of what Dorothy Day called the "long loneliness," Simone Wiel called "unmixed attention," and what MLK called “prayers that open  hearts and spirits.” Contemplative space is where meditative practice meets mindful everyday living, an ancient tradition of mystics across faith lineages. 

Our hunch is that the inner condition of each busy bee influences the possibilities of art and justice for the entire hive.
