In a response to our culture's hunger for a renewed relationship to our vital feminine roots, Nancy Fierro digs her hands into the rich soil of our past and unearths the nourishing bounty of Hildegard of Bingen. From her early experience of abandonment, through her numinous call, her descent into illness, her evolving capacity to embody the light and shadow of her nature, Hildegard's journey is an individuation tale. Dr. Fierro's keen vision gifts us with a Hildegard who is profoundly religious, humanly flawed, creative, sensual, practical, determined, and generous. As a woman who must express the multidimensionality of her whole being to stay truly sane, Hildegard is a sister to us all.
