Should and could…

Phileena Heuertz is one of my favorite voices in the contemplative space today. In short, she and her husband, Chris Heuertz, have both been very pivotal in my spiritual journey and walk into the practices of contemplation over the last couple years.

She joins us in this latest episode as we discuss her memoir, Pilgrimage of a Soul. You’ll hear in this interview that it is a beautiful reflection on her story into awareness and awakening of the true self.

The Good, The True, & The Beautiful Vol. 1

What we look for we find.

If you want bad news, there’s plenty of it.

And if you want to experience some good news, you can find that too…if you’ll just look around.

I look and listen a lot and now I plan to start sharing what I’m finding, seeing, and hearing for you to enjoy and share in.

Yes! There is music amidst the noise and it’s good, it’s true, and it’s beautiful.

Here we go! (click the links!)

The Beautiful
