Weber Retreat and Conference Center invites the mindfulness community – and all who hope to begin a mindfulness practice – to monthly Days of Mindfulness, held in person on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sister Esther Kennedy, OP, a Dominican Sister of Adrian and a retreat leader and spiritual director, leads the sessions.
Upcoming sessions are as follows:
- May 13, 2023 – Don’t flinch. The heart of meditation is awareness of and staying with whatever arises within. We just stay. As the mind begins to ease, a taste of compassion arises.
- June 10, 2023 – Be kind to yourself. Many people tend to belittle themselves or make light of their feelings, but what would it be like if each of us relates to our vulnerabilities, fears, difficulties, and insecurities from a place of tenderness? This could place us on the path of healing and transformation.
- July 15, 2023 – Keep your heart ready. When our heart-mind is suffering and troubled, we long for an inner quiet. The practice of mindful breathing helps us to look deeply within, to be at ease in a flow of kindness and compassion.
Each session is limited to 30 participants. The cost of $35 per session includes 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Limited scholarships are available.
