Hildegard of Bingen, the 12th century saint who composed liturgical music for her community, believed that music helps ground us when we are out of sorts or lose our way.

  1. “I the Lord of Sea and Sky” returns to me today as it has on many days of my life. Thank you Janice for being present for us today and offering your gifts and those of Hildegard.

  2. Thank you Janice for the gift of this retreat. I have read some of the gifts in writing from Hildegard .You gave me a little pamphlet of her quotes. They are deep in meaning and sometimes hard for me to get my head around, so maybe this retreat will add to my understanding. I start Sunday School tomorrow and will benefit from this retreat as we begin with the Season of Creation.

  3. I too hear “here I am lord” . It often plays in my heart .

  4. “Be Still and Know” by the Fray.

  5. I have been spending time with Hildegaard each morning through her music from YouTube and working through your retreat info. Stumbled upon this presentation, which most of you have likely seen but just in case… Her Q&A post-presentation is especially enlightening. Blessings to all.

  6. Really enjoyed June’ lecture. Have read of her music but had never seen or heard her excellent lecture- uplifting. Thanks for the link!
