Sister Esther Kennedy, OP, a Dominican Sister of Adrian, resumes her monthly Days of Mindfulness in person on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sessions this season will focus on relationships, amplifying our capacity to be love within family, neighborhood, city, and world.

Upcoming sessions are as follows:

  • Cultivating Heart, Finding Courage, January 14, 2023. Times of crisis always include moments of grace, as insight and wisdom dawn. A community gathered in meditation is grace itself, offered in love to our world.
  • Acting from Deep Knowing, February 11, 2023. John Kabat-Zinn says, “Meditation is the only intentional, systematic human activity which at bottom is about not trying to improve yourself or get anywhere else, but simply to realize where you already are.” It is waking up, simply for the sake of waking up.
  • Relieving Suffering, March 11, 2023. What responses arise within you when you think of someone you dislike, fear, or resent? With patience and tenderness, examine your behavior and open yourself to unfolding and transforming awareness.
  • Cultivating Mindfulness, April 15, 2023. What value does meditation have? We may simply desire to realize more fully who we are and to live in the growing freedom of that awareness.

Mindfulness sessions are limited to 30 participants. All 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 on the website under “Programs.” Registrations may also be made by calling 517-266-4000 or emailing Limited scholarships are available.
