The third instalment of my video series on female Christian mystics is about the amazing twelfth-century seer and visionary, Hildegard von Bingen. She had much to say about the challenges, the responsibilities and the gifts of being ahead of your time. She herself was a Renaissance woman before the Renaissance began: a polymath, theologian, composer, poet, botanist and acclaimed public speaker, amongst other things.
The concept of God as a ‘Living Light’ often arises in Hildegard’s writings. She revisited this theme in my video: speaking about how we can expand and anchor this light within our bodies. Honouring the Living Light within all things – and within the Earth itself – was another very prominent theme. She even insisted on bringing the beloved elemental deity, The Green Man, into the video! 😊
