One of my favorite all-time new resources comes from the folks at Healthy Hildegard, they envisioned Healthy Hildegard as an organic forum of ideas, information, and exploration where our individual seeds of passion, creativity, and purpose could be cultivated in a nurturing environment. A kind of biosphere of generative human cooperation, empowering our readers – and ourselves, to live healthy, vibrant lives.

Here are some more resources, and please add your own suggestions into the comment section below.  Would love to hear from you.

Hildegard von Bingen Pilgrim Trail

“Some may be spiritual and can have a sports experience; others are more athletic and can have a spiritual experience. Hopefully both of them can agree with Hildegard: O quam mirabilis – How wonderful! “

(Dr. Annette Esser, Scivias Institute for Art and Spirituality eV)

Pilgrimage: Hildegard Way

Embark on the 137 km  “Hildegard of Bingen pilgrim’s path” and hike in the footsteps of the saints through the land of Hildegard and past various stages of life of the most famous personality of the Middle Ages.  Or take the 6.7 km footpath takes a circular route through the vineyards of Rüdesheim to the parish and pilgrimage church of Eibingen and the Benedictine Abbey of St. Hildegard.  Points of interest and beautiful panoramic views along the way offer you insights into the life of Hildegard of Bingen and the landscape as she knew it.
