about this item

The Spirit of Saint Hildegard is a rich, visual introduction to the life of 12th century abbess, mystic,visionary, and scholar, Hildegard of Bingen. Her writings, artwork and musical compositions are among the worlds most luminious treasures ever created. Hildegards wisdom reaches broad and deep, covering all areas of life, from the study of science and natural history to prayer; from political activism to baking “Cookies of Joy.” Many people have heard of the mystics, Saint Francis of Assisi and Joan of Arc, but for some reason human culture has yet to fully appreciate the unique gifts that Hildegard has bequeathed. We are now, as a species, at a turning point—facing global warming, cultural and political shockwaves, war and the exodus of millions. We are in need of wisdom like never before. Hildegard of Bingen was a true genuis and wrote extensively about a connected view of life which resonates perfectly with modern ecological and compassion movements. Light some incense, tune your music station to Hildegard’s chants, sit back with a cup of tea and spend some time with The Spirit of Saint Hildegard.
