About Hildegard

Since 2014, we’ve been working on gathering information about Hildegard von Bingen and her remarkable life. Our initial motivation came from a genuine interest in Hildegard’s midlife awakening. Most of all, the notion that a purpose-driven life can begin at 40 and if we listen to our inner voice and spirit, we will find our purpose. Hildegard became the first intelectual to establish the connection between spirituality, medicine, and self reflection. Over the years we’ve discovered that Saint Hildegard offers not just inspiration but also much more.

Hildegard has long been recognized as a meaningful religious and historical figure. But it wasn’t until 2012 that her contributions to spirituality and medicine resulted in her canonization as a Saint and doctor of the Church. Guided by her vivid vision, enlightened purpose, and holistic approach to living, we seek to awaken the visionary, mystic, teacher, and healer in ourselves. And in doing so, we invite you to join us, to do the same. If you are interested in learning more about Hildegard von Bingen herbal remedies, writings, and philosophies, we urge you to visit our article archive. Hildegard von Bingen is an incredible model of how inner awakening can influence and affect the world around you. Because of her profound ability to influence others with her knowledge and spirituality, we, here at Healthy Hildegard, have sought to create a community of like-minded individuals.
