This quote is by Phileena Heuertz from her book Mindful Silence: The Heart of Christian Contemplation (InterVarsity Press, 2008), 8. Phileena spent more than 20 years working for a variety of NGOs internationally until, like many in similar roles, she hit burn-out. Phileena then co-founded Gravity, a centre for contemplative activism, which encourages the development of a contemplative spiritual discipline as a counterbalance to activism. You can find the Gravity website here. Phileena is now a well-known speaker, author and retreat guide. Along with her husband, Chris Heuertz, she is also involved in teaching about the Enneagram. For more about Phileena, see her own website, here.
