A HOLY HIGH: How Hildegard Found Her Inspiration Grounded in the Garden

I propose that Hildegard’s intimate relationship with the natural world was a conduit for sacred revelations and that this relationship provided the very essence from which her ecstasies were shaped and formed.
— Mary DeJong

This essay was forged and formed in the garden. As I have read Hildegard of Bingen's writings over the last couple years, her wisdom has transformed how I understand the plant-life that surrounds me. There is an invitation to deep interrelationship through the soil that ultimately draws us closer to the Sacred Source. Thank you to the editors at The Other Journal who have worked so kindly and diligently with me to give this essay its powerful prose!
