Phileena Heuertz spent 20 years working as an activist in some of the worlds toughest places. And then she had a crisis of faith. “I really needed a practice that could hold me. Before, it was me holding my faith. But I needed my faith to hold me. I needed to let go. I needed to be held by God.” Today, Phileena is a spiritual director and teacher of contemplative prayer. She helps other activists and ministry leaders deepen their relationships with God, discern their unconscious motivations for service and cultivate practices of stillness, silence and solitude. “Solitude teaches us to be present. Silence teaches us to listen. Stillness teaches us what appropriate engagement looks like.”
