Phileena speaks wholeheartedly and transparently, gracefully guiding others toward growth and transformation. She has spoken for audiences large and small at educational institutions and conferences nationwide, including Asbury Theological Seminary, Creighton University, Fuller Seminary, George Fox University, the Q Conference, Catalyst, Urbana, and many others.
Phileena’s story is compelling. Her soul-drenched passion to lead people closer to God’s heart through contemplative spirituality is a welcome message for today’s spiritual-minded seeker. As an expert on contemplative prayer, she gives rise to an often neglected practice more important today than ever. Phileena brings rooted conviction along with practical application to how to live a countercultural message we all need to hear.

Phileena challenges listeners to reflect deeply on the inner self and the integration of the active and contemplative life. With a strong spirit forged from experiences rooted in lament and celebration, Phileena ignites a passion in us to be God-bearers in the world. I highly recommend Phileena as a prophetic voice that releases adrenaline into our apathetic souls!
