Bees and the sword of contestation

Now think, intensely meditate,
That in the state of emptiness,
Of perfect evenness, all things
Appear like magical illusions.
Longchenpa „Finding rest in illusion”

The workshop reflects on the symbolism of bees and their social life, Longchenpa’s mystic philosophy, and an idea of monstrosity through the narrative scenario of various creative activities. By interpreting the path of getting the sword of contestation in the world, where everything is an illusion, participants can investigate the category of illusion and tools, we have to examine it.

The workshop took place at the VI PhilosophyCon organized by Silesian University in Katowice.
