What's Happening


April 12, 2024, Adrian, Michigan – All are invited to join the mindfulness community at Weber Retreat and Conference Center to gather monthly in an effort to deepen their understanding of and commitment to a daily meditation practice. Days of Mindfulness are in person from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays. 

Upcoming Days of Mindfulness are as follows:

•    May 4, 2024, Learning to Be Honest – By sitting mindfully, we can learn to be gentle and to love with open-hearted awareness, whatever energy arises.

•    June 1, 2024, Thirsty for Wonder – Have you ever been stunned by the beauty of nature? When we pause and turn inward, we are more available to experience the sacred.

•    August 3, 2024, Welcome Uncertainty – Instead of wanting to secure ourselves on the path and hoping to transcend the struggles of life, we can move toward them. Through meditation, we can discover the warmth and tenderness of our aching hearts.

Days of Mindfulness are facilitated by Sister Esther Kennedy, OP, a Dominican Sister of Adrian, a retreat leader, and a spiritual director. The cost is $35 per session and includes lunch. Each session is limited to 30 participants.
