Described by contemporary creation spirituality theologian Matthew Fox as “herald of the divine feminine, green prophet, church reformer” who “represents the big link between Christian spirituality and pre-patriarchial spiritualities,” Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) was abbess, artist, composer, counsellor, healer, herbalist, poet, preacher, theologian and visionary.

Our explorations will run over 5 sessions, but each session will be stand-alone so you are welcome to attend just as many as you can.
