Greenness – Christine Valters Paintner

February 3, 2020

“Greenness is not just a physical reality but a spiritual one as well. Hildegard believed that viriditas was something to be cultivated in both body and soul. Her language is filled with metaphors for seeking out the moistness and fruitfulness of the soul. The sign of our aliveness is this participation in the life force of the Creator.”

  Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, The Wisdom of the Body: A Contemplative Journey to Wholeness for Women

How does viriditas manifest in your body and soul? What brings you to life?
