Book review by Abbess Christine Valters Paintner. Hildegard of Bingen: A Poetic Journey

Affirming words from the Abbess Christine Valters Paintner   PhD

who lead the enriching 3 weeks Pilgrimage

of walking in Hildegard of Bingen’s footsteps in the Benedictine Way

which I was a part of with 30 other pilgrims in Autumn 2013

Christine’s latest book  Dreaming of Stones is a very reflective selection of poetry

 

“Hildegard of Bingen was a woman of extraordinary creative expression and this book approaches her wisdom through the gift of poetry which allows us to move into a more intuitive space. It is a book to slow us down, that invites us to ponder, and calls us to follow Hildegard toward a growing greenness in our lives.”

—Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, author of 12 books on spirituality including Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics

Blessings on your project!

Warmly, Christine
