About this event

The 12th century Benedictine nun Hildegard of Bingen possessed many talents: writer, visionary, prophet, composer, artist, herbalist, preacher, and property owner. She invented her own language, wrote one of the earliest surviving morality plays, established her own convent, and is the best-known composer of sacred monophony, as well as the most-recorded in modern history.

It will be an enriching opportunity to attend this event and to connect with her music, paintings and writings. Hildegard is a Saint for our times.

“God hugs you. You are encircled by the arms of the mystery of God”. (Hildegard of Bingen)

No longer booking (see message above)

The closing date for receipt of bookings to participate in the Dublin Seminar is: Friday 13th March.  

You can book for the Dublin event on Eventbrite HERE or by contacting Dr. Noelia Molina noeliamolina@yahoo.com or by phone T: 086 811 9539.
