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.
On March 24th of this year, Kelly released his latest book entitled Loveable: Embracing What Is Truest About You, So You Can Truly Embrace Your Life. Loveable is written to the little one in each of us, who is all too ready to be reminded: you are enough, you are not alone, and you matter.
In Loveable, Dr. Flanagan reveals the core insight gleaned from his years of clinical work: you are here for a reason, yet you cannot truly awaken to it until you have first embraced your truest, worthiest self and then allowed yourself to be truly embraced by others.
Weaving heart-warming storytelling, gentle insights, and the wisdom of Dr. Flanagan’s Christian tradition—including his belief that we are all “the living, breathing bearers of the eternal, transcendent, and limitless Love that spun the planets and hung the stars”—these pages invite you to remember the name you were given before all other names: Loveable.
