Podcast 82: Pilgrimage of a Soul with Phileena Heuertz

phileena and ashton

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.

Universal Suggestions

Listen to disruptions.

Celebrate small successes.

Exchange words in your vernacular like working, building, and producing with crafting, cooking, writing, gardening, or painting. The results will taste better.

Hold your truth with humility.

Embrace paradox.

Spy for beauty and then tell us when and where you found it.

Obey your body.

Center yourself often in gratitude.

Keep learning and sharing what you’re learning.

Enjoy.

The Inner Child

Talk with him or her often.

Ask him to remind you to be wide-eyed.

Seek her counsel and lean into her innocence.

Think back…How did you see before you were taught in/out, up/down, left/right, right/wrong, or winner/loser?

The inner child knows these answers.

Before we started to analyze everything we simply experienced everything.

So may you……simply…

………………………………………..experience…

………………………………………………………………..everything.

The you that is truly you will be so glad to see you again.

Podcast 57: Loveable with Dr. Kelly Flanagan

LTMP Flanagan

Dr. Flanagan is a clinical psychologist and a father known to millions for the letters he writes to his children and shares on his blog.

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.
