6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


A 4-Session Course on Zoom facilitated by Linda Brown

Do you like to express yourself in words? During this course, we will explore writing by listening and reacting to some of the words of 12th century mystic, saint, and visionary, Hildegard of Bingen. Her brilliance allowed her to express the conflicts and issues of her age in ways that are startlingly modern and current, even radical.

This workshop is not about trying to create published authors, but is about demonstrating how the words of someone else can lead us to our own expression and enrich our lives in ways we have not anticipated.

The course will include practicing writing in several forms, based on your preference: prose, poetry and journaling. We will be sharing our writing with each other as well as our thoughts about Hildegard.
