After 20 years of grassroots work in some of the world’s poorest slums, red light areas and places of intense human suffering, Phileena and Chris Heuertz have reflected on what it takes for communities to maintain a vibrant, growing spirituality in the face of human need by integrating faith-filled spiritual practice with modern daily life and service.

Gravity, a Center for Contemplative Activism exists to nurture the integral connection between contemplation and action.

Gravity grounds social change in contemplative spirituality, to do good better, by facilitating contemplative retreats, spiritual direction, and enneagram consultations.

Our aim is to support the development of consciousness by making contemplative practices accessible to individuals and communities who care about their spirituality and want to make the world a better place.

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Omaha, Nebraska and partner with individuals, faith communities, organizations, corporations, and foundations.

Join the movement for sustainable social change by partnering financially or participating in one of our programs or services.
