August 12, 2022, Adrian, Michigan – Esther Kennedy, a Dominican Sister of Adrian, invites all interested people to join in a mindfulness community as she conducts monthly Days of Mindfulness at Weber Retreat and Conference Center. Days of Mindfulness are on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT. Sessions are as follows.
September 10, 2022: Seeing Clearly. The discipline of mindfulness guides us to inner seeing: insight. Focused attention opens us to contemplation and to a deeper fullness where the one seeing and the seen are one.
October 15, 2022: Mind is Like a River. Like the flowing, resting, swirling, rushing water of the river, our thoughts flow through us. We gather to practice mindfulness, to steady, quiet, and concentrate our mind.
November 12, 2022: Clarifying the Sludge. As we practice sitting in stillness, the distractions settle down and we are left with clarity of mind.
December 10, 2022: Peace is the Way. Softening what is rigid in our hearts is the pathway to peace, awakening the soul’s profound capacity to love.
Days of Mindfulness are held in person and are limited to 30 participants. Guests will be screened for COVID-19 and required to wear masks when not eating.
The cost is $35 per session, including lunch. Registration is required and is available at www.webercenter.org; click on “programs.” Registrations may also be made by calling 517-266-4000 or emailing email@example.com. Limited scholarships are available.
