The Labyrinth on the Disibodenberg

Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179) lived from 1112 to 1147 on the Disibodenberg. Here she wrote also her main work: Liber Scivias Domini (Know the ways of the Lord).

Scivias: Know the ways, is naturally also a keyword for the labyrinth. Because it is important to know the right ways and to walk them.

On the Disibodenberg near Bad Kreuznach (Germany) today only ruins of the once large monastery are to be seen. But there is a beautiful, small classical labyrinth with 7 circuits, which is visited obviously very much. That comes naturally not from Hildegard of Bingen, but from Gundula, which is at home both in the USA as well as in Germany.

On April 4, I had the honour and the joy to visit Disibodenberg together with her.

On the way back we then met these lovely lambkins, which looked for their mother.

  2. Someday… this is one of the places I would most like to visit.

    What a lovely labyrinth indeed, and such joy discovered and shared in this time together in and out of the labyrinth!
