the hildegarden at saints preserved

Please excuse the mess…We’re still doing some renovations. (But making good progress! Un-doing and redo-ing several years of work takes awhile, it seems – especially when you have other work to do!)

Thanks for your patience! (09.24.2016)

Welcome to the HilegardenWelcome to the Hildegarden. The gate is always open and we hope you’ll stroll around and enjoy the experience – so much so that you’ll want to return often, perhaps plant some seeds…
leave your footprints, share some gleanings, do some digging…take away a bouquet.
(Okay, that’s a lot of metaphors, but after all it is a “virtual” garden…)

Please help the garden grow by contributing your stories, links, observations, etc.
We can make a difference…beginning with our inner circles and expanding to the entire world and beyond.
We can continue to protect and preserve this “Cosmic Egg” …
but even more: We can make it better. In our own way, whether it’s quiet contemplation or courageous conflict; or whether the medium is the arts or the sciences (most likely a combination) –  we can do it through  connections. (And yes, that word is certainly overused today, perhaps because it simply defines the zeitgeist.)

Celebrate St. Hildegard's Day!


An original, hand-painted card by Sue Cash

Sue is a friend of Donna Corso who sent us that lovely card, as well as this
Hymn for Divine Wisdom:

Sophia!
You of the whirling wings,
circling, encompassing energy from God
One wing sweeps the earth
and the third flies all around us.

Praise to Sophia 
Let all earth praise her.

Come!
