What's Happening


August 30, 2021, Adrian, Michigan – Mindfulness is a practice in living honestly with oneself. Join the mindfulness community that meets monthly to deepen our understanding and commitment to the daily practice of meditation. 

Facilitated by Adrian Dominican Sister Esther Kennedy, OP, retreat leader and spiritual director, the Days of Mindfulness are held Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Weber Retreat and Conference Center. The dates and themes are as follows:

  • September 11, 2021, Basic Concentration. Through practice, we can allow thoughts to come into and out of our minds, notice them, and return our focus on our breath. This presentation will be virtual only, and will be $25 due to lunch not being included.

  • October 9, 2021, Looking Deeply. Mindfulness enables us to live honestly with ourselves and to take note of how our mind and body respond to certain things, people, and realities.

  • November 20, 2021, Wandering Mind. Learn the difference between watching thoughts pass by like clouds and inviting them to lunch. When we are caught by our thoughts, sanity is only a breath away.

  • December 11, 2021, Wholeness, Happiness, Peace. Living in and being attuned to the rhythms of the present moment means living in accord with life. 

The cost of $35 per session includes lunch. In-person attendees will be screened for temperatures and symptoms of COVID-19 as they enter and masks are required.
