Retreat Speakers: Phileena & Chris HEuertz

Phileena & Chris are founding partners of Gravity, a center for contemplative action. Their interest is to support the development of consciousness by making contemplative practices accessible to organizations and individuals alike.

They have hard-won wisdom. For nearly twenty years, they served as leaders with Word Made Flesh 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.

Both Chris and Phileena are sought after speakers, retreat leaders and authors of multiple books. Most recently, Chris released, The Sacred Enneagram (2016), and Phileena’s latest book, Mindful Silence will be launched November 2018.

To the degree that we are transformed, the world is transformed.

Retreat Hosts:  Christa Hesselink & Mark Petersen

Christa (2w3) and Mark (7w8) have been friends and colleagues for a few years now and have spent many hours commiserating, laughing and trying to solve the world's problems over a pint. They are both drawn to "the contemplative" and each have had a separate, yet profound experience on their own pilgrimages walking the Camino de Santiago.

The Soul Way Retreat seemed like a perfect idea to hatch given their mutual intrigue and delight with all-things-Enneagram, as well as their respect for, and friendship with Chris & Phileena.  They are thrilled to host you for the weekend.

You can find out more about Christa here, and Mark, here.
