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. ET. The sessions are virtual only and will be on Zoom.
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.
- 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 is $25 per session, and a break for lunch will be included. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link. Visit www.webercenter.org and click on “programs;” call 517-266-4000; or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Limited scholarships are available.
