The Unruly Mystic: Saint Hildegard of Bingen
To discover the Divine in the soul, means to activate the original blessing with the potential of 35 spiritual healing forces - from the love of No.1 to No. 35 - joy of life, which are responsible for our wellbeing, our health and our happiness.
Hildegard emphasizes and illustrates in her visions that everyone of us is unique and a "miracle of God."
"You have been called to inherit the blessing." 1 Peter 3.9
The power of our soul has an amazing effect on our health: the defenses of the immune system increase, the nerves calm down, the heart is strengthened and all the body's regenerative processes are activated.
Everyone is born with this "Original blessing," but many people sell their souls or allow their spiritual forces to be destroyed through injuries, both physical and spiritual. This spiritual energy loss causes almost all diseases.
The film is the result of numerous insightful interviews with people such as the Benedictine sister Lydia from the Abbey of St. Hildegard in Eibingen, the theologian Beverly Mayne Kienzle of Harvard Divinity School, the mezzo-soprano Lynn Maxwell, the scientist Dr. Wighard Strehlow and Matthew Fox , the American Hildegard theologian and priest, plus many more.
The aim of this documentary is to discover the mystic and to activate spiritual values and the ability to love and create in all persons.
This is a "must" for those who want to lead a happy, spiritual and meaningful life. Then life will become a feast, an unforgettable sleigh ride, as it was recently formulated by a Hildegard friend:
"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!" - Hunter S. Thompson
