About the Podcast:

“Contemplate This!” features interviews with leaders and teachers of contemplative practices (mindfulness, meditation, contemplative prayer, etc.) in order to learn about their history, how they became involved in contemplation, what their daily practice looks like, how they teach and share the fruits of contemplation with others – and most importantly – how their practice has transformed them and inspired their work to transform others and the world around them.

Episode 4: Interview with Phileena Heuertz

I first met Phileena Heuertz at the New Contemplative Exchange in Snowmass, CO, in August 2017, and I knew immediately that I had to interview her for Contemplate This!   I have seen firsthand, and experienced myself, how her warmth and compassionate presence draws people to her as a safe haven.  Her name - Phileena - means friend of humanity, and she has lived into her namesake.

Phileena is a founding co-director of Gravity Center: a Center for Contemplative Activism (in Omaha, NE), along with her husband Chris.  She has spent her life in social justice work among the world’s poor. A member of the New Friar movement, for nearly 20 years she and her husband Chris served with Word Made Flesh in more than 70 countries building community among victims of human trafficking, survivors of HIV and AIDS, abandoned children and child soldiers and war brides.
