A Restorative Weekend Retreat for Women Inspired by St. Hildegard of Bingen

With St. Hildegard (1098-1179) as our guide, we will enter an ancient sacred garden of love and wisdom, where we will be nourished by songs of heart, including selections from Hildegard’s powerful music received from the “living light.” We will also explore Hildegard’s art, holistic medicine, and profound spiritual teachings to cultivate this generative garden of timeless love.

Some of the women on this retreat have been participating for several years, some are coming for the first time. All are warmly welcomed and valued. All you need is an open and willing heart.
