Three-centered awareness is crucial for experiencing Divine Presence; mind, heart, and body coming online and cooperating together. But too often, we experience shut-down in one or more of these centers. This limits our capacity for opening to Presence and receiving the integration and wholeness for which we long.

Are you curious about the deeper, subtle, life-changing dynamics of contemplative prayer? Do you feel stuck in your practice and desire to progress? Are you wondering how to more regularly bring the gifts of your sitting practice into your daily experiences of life and relationships?

If so, join Phileena Heuertz for this 3 hour online contemplative experience. During our time together, Phileena will offer a mix of foundational teaching, guided group contemplation, and three-centered awareness practice.

Phileena Heuertz spent her early adult life in social justice work among the world’s poor. For nearly 20 years she served 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.

Author, spiritual director, yoga instructor, public speaker and retreat guide, Phileena is passionate about spirituality and making the world a better place. Phileena leads contemplative retreats for non-faith and interfaith groups across the nation and around the world. She is a sought-after speaker for universities, seminaries, faith communities, and conferences. In 2012, Phileena co-founded Gravity to support the development of consciousness by making contemplative practice more widely accessible.

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 trauma-informed certified spiritual director in the Ignatian contemplative evocative method, with an emphasis on three-centered awareness.

Named “Outstanding Alumni” by Asbury University and one of Outreach magazine’s “30 Emerging Influencers Reshaping Leadership,” Phileena believes that contemplative spirituality is crucial to authentic, creative, liberating social change. She is a board member emeritus for Duke Divinity School’s Center for Reconciliation and Richard Rohr’s Center for Action and Contemplation. Phileena is known for her provocative theological narrative, Pilgrimage of a Soul and contemplative classic, Mindful Silence.

Gravity Center: Gravity, a Center for Contemplative Activism exists to nurture the integral connection between contemplation and action. Gravity grounds social change in contemplative spirituality, to do good better, by facilitating contemplative retreats, spiritual direction, and enneagram consultations.

Our aim is to support the development of consciousness by making contemplative practices accessible to individuals and communities who care about their spirituality and want to make the world a better place.
