About the event

St Hildegard of Bingen was a remarkable visionary, writer, composer, and Benedictine abbess who lived at the beginning of the 12th century. She was a woman of many talents, writing numerous texts on theology, botany, and medicine in a time when these subjects were considered an exclusively male domain. She also composed music and poetry that is still considered some of the finest in the history of the church. In this weekend retreat, we will explore some of the creative works of St Hildegard of Bingen and how we might bring sacred creativity into our own lives.

Dates: Friday, June 30, 7 pm - Sunday, July 2, 1:30 pm (approx)

Cost (including all meals): $240. If you'd like to attend but the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch as we may be able to assist you.

Creativity is really important in her life, from cooking a meal right through to spinning wool or climbing a mountain
