In July at The Well, we had the opportunity to share excerpts from a book we enjoyed and learned from this year. We caught up with Phileena Heuertz, author of Mindful Silence: The Heart of Christian Contemplation, to chat about her journey from justice work to contemplation and the “mixed life” for this episode of the podcast. One of the reasons we were attracted to this book is the number of women we meet who have been formed in their relationships with Phileena and her work in the world and with prayer. We hope you learn from her invitation to contemplation as well.

To conclude our summer special at The Well, join us in listening in on our interview with contemplative activist Phileena Heuertz as she offers thoughts on the way she avoids burnout and finds Christ as the source of her strength through contemplative practices.

“So, awareness and response — I think this is where the Holy Spirit of God really works very powerfully for me, sort of awakening me, keeping me aware, keeping me open. There is always something new ahead — and I’m saying that as a 90-year-old woman. I’m hoping that life continues to open itself to me — and this is a work of God’s Spirit.” — Luci Shaw
