Hildegard of Bingen, Magistra, Mystic, Musician

A Retreat with St. Hildegard of Bingen

St. Hildegard of Bingen was a 12th century "Renaissance" woman, whose visionary experiences informed her life, her music and her writings.  This retreat is an opportunity to immerse yourself in St. Hildegard's unique and unitive imagination of the cosmos in the context of her times, and to experience her concept of "viriditas," that is, the "greening power." We will explore her medicine, theology, philosophy of life, and music, while being enfolded in time for prayer, silence and time in nature.  St.  Hildegard's vision is particularly relevant in these times.

The retreat includes a meditative concert of her music on Saturday evening.

Now Scheduled!  At Immanuel Retreat Center, Bellows Falls, VT. December 14-16, 2018
