NOTE: The last session of Mindful Pause will be held on July 30, with the recording posted July 31. All recordings will remain up through August 2020 and then will be removed.
In these chaotic times, it is important to take time to stop and become aware of our own breathing to cultivate the quality of patience with ourselves and others. We can remember to trust that our life unfolds in its own unique rhythm, understanding that in patience lies our wisdom and joy.
Join us every Friday through July 2020 when we will post new 30-minute recordings of a free mindfulness meditation led by Esther Kennedy, OP.
Esther Kennedy, OP, a Dominican Sister of Adrian, Michigan, is a retreat leader and spiritual director. For several years she has led a monthly Day of Mindfulness at Weber Center.
