Experiencing Hildegard of Bingen: 
First ‘Green’ Doctor of the Church, Enduring Visionary & Timeless Wisdom Figure

Saturday, September 17th 2022
10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
via Zoom

Twelfth century German Benedictine Abbess, ecologist, mystic, herbalist, theologian, musician, writer and visionary Hildegard of Bingen leaked into the 20th century and by the 21st century became the 4th female and first green doctor of the church! On her September 17th Feast Day, we will experience Hildegard of Bingen by savoring her fascinating life story arising from her time and be challenged by her relevance to inner and ecological tasks that belong to our time. The presentations are offered artfully relying on Hildegard’s own visual illuminations, her own words and music. Hildegard continues to possess a timeless and timely message for people who walk the earth nine centuries after she did.

No matter an individual's religious background or even if one has none; our experience on September 17th will provide an uncommon opportunity to connect with the "divine spark" deep within us and within the universe.

Planet or Plastics

November 16th, 2021
4:00 - 5:30 p.m.
*this program was recorded and is available for viewing below

Sea birds are dying because their bellies are full of plastic trash. Microplastic particles are in the air we breathe, the water we drink and some of the food we eat. Plastic recycling has been an epic failure and plastic production contributes to climate change and major pollution in low-income communities and communities of color. Learn about these issues and what you can do to help us move beyond plastic.

Presenter: Judith Enck, Environmental Policy Expert, and founder of Beyond Plastics, an effort to end plastic pollution through education, advocacy, and institutional change. She teaches classes on plastic pollution as a Senior Fellow and visiting faculty member at Bennington College.
