THE CHRISTINE CENTER, a retreat center for spirituality and meditation in Central Wisconsin, will offer a retreat September 13-15 titled “Hildegard Fest! In Spirit and In Song.” The retreat will offer the opportunity to sing the healing sound of Hildegard’s music and chant (no experience necessary) and gain inspiration from exploring St. Hildegard’s life.
The retreat is facilitated by Susan Lincoln, a classically trained singer, who sings the 12th century music of Hildegard daily. Ms. Lincoln is internationally known as an inspiring teacher who uses the teachings and songs of Hildegard to strengthen and enrich her student’s spiritual lives. Her recent recording of Karitas from her Mother Heart CD of Hildegard’s music was handpicked by Eckhart Tolle for inclusion on his new CD, Music for Inner Stillness.
Susan will be joined by co-facilitator Gabriele Uhlein, OSF, Ph.D., who will provide inspiration from Hildegard’s food and healing recipes and sacred visions.
The cost of the retreat is a sliding scale of $100-$200, plus meals and lodging.
