Living a Life Unleashed Podcast

Episode #27 Phileena Heuertz: Deepening our experience of God through Contemplative Practice

May 11, 2018

On today's show we talk about contemplative prayer....solitude, silence and stillness, as a practice to deepen our experience with God.

We will learn how contemplative practice deepens our relationship with and experience of God and is an essential practice for people who want to grow in their faith.

This conversation may be new for a lot of us!  I encourage you to listen in as we talk about this practice as an invitation to awaken to God and our lives, and to see with new eyes.

We will also talk about how we often numb ourselves and how our lives are filled with distractions and addictions that prevent us from what Psalm 46:10 says, "Be still and know that I am God."

Being with God and not the constant going that can run our lives.

On this episode, I have invited Phileena Heuertz to share insight from her book, Pilgrimage of a Soul, Contemplative Spirituality for the Active Life.

In addition to being an author, Phileena’s work includes public speaking, teaching and writing on contemplative spirituality, facilitation of contemplative retreats, and spiritual direction. She holds a Masters of Christian Spirituality from Creighton University’s department of theology and is a certified spiritual director in the Ignatian contemplative evocative method.She and her husband Chris founded Gravity in 2012 to make contemplative practice accessible to individuals, communities and organizations.

You can purchase Phileena's book on Amazon.
