All interested people are invited to join the mindfulness community that gathers monthly at Weber Retreat and Conference Center. The purpose is to deepen their understanding of and commitment to daily meditation practice. Sister Esther Kennedy, OP, a Dominican Sister of Adrian, facilitates the sessions.

Days of Mindfulness are from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturdays at Weber Center. The schedule and themes for fall 2023 are:

  • September 9, 2023: Leave Life Alone: Let it Be. Have you ever noticed how easy it is to create a conflict with what is occurring externally? When you become aware of an inner conflict, let yourself be curious and stay with the experience.
  • October 7, 2023: Why Practice Patience? The ultimate perfection of patience comes from the absence of our habitual, automatic triggers and reactive hooks to the challenges of life. Mindfulness helps us see ourselves just as we are.
  • November 11, 2023: Touching, We Are Touched. Daily, we get lost in a separate “me” thinking and planning, while nature reminds us to be still, to be ourselves, and to connect mindfully with nature.
  • December 9, 2023: Live Unbiased, Open, Fresh. Mindfulness meditation offers the courage to stay with experiences that are unpleasant, hurtful, or even frightening – those cracks where the light gets into our lives.

The cost for each session is $35, including lunch. Registration is required and available at; click “programs.” Registrations may also be made by calling 517-266-4000 or emailing Limited scholarships are available.
