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.

NOTE: Mindful Pause will move to once per week, starting the week of May 25, 2020 (Memorial Day). Join us every Tuesday and Friday 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.
