On this one day retreat we will focus on the idea of motherhood, in the physical as well as spiritual sense, and explore how Hildegard can help us reflect on both the bliss and pain which comes with giving birth to a child, a vocation, or a new stage in life. We will listen, read, explore, learn, reflect, share, walk and eat together pondering the sacredness of motherhood and our own journey with it. Hildegard sees mothering as a central aspect of how God relates to us, and of our recognition of our dependence on Divine motherhood. This retreat is for both women and men who are new to Hildegard’s voice and for those familiar with her.
With cloisterseminars.org we envision a
that merges intellectual seeking and contemplative practice with monastic wisdom and hospitality.
We invite you to come along on this journey.
