Guided Retreat: A Feather on the Breath of God: Hildegard of Bingen
A Feather on the Breath of God: Hildegard of Bingen
Hildegard of Bingen was a remarkable woman of the 12th century – a monastic, visionary, healer, composer and writer.
Given to a monastery as a child oblate, she lived and breathed scripture and the divine offices throughout her life.
Her visions and creativity flowed from her rich inner life. In a time when women’s voices were not heard, her writing and reflecting gave her courage to speak up as a prophetic witness to church and society.
Together we’ll look at her images, listen to her music, and reflect on her writings to engage with this remarkable woman today.
Led by Sr. Elizabeth Ann Eckert, SSJD, former Reverend Mother and currently Novice Director and Guest House Coordinator.
