VIDEO RESOURCES for Stage One of the Reflection Process

The short Video clips listed on this page are offered for use in contextualising the process when the group first gathers. The list includes reflections and songs. Some of these were included in the Further Resources section of Mercy eNews in 2015 during the preparation period for undertaking the International Reflection process; others are included in the Resources page on this MIRP site; the rest are new additions. For ease of access they have been collected here.

To play a video, click anywhere on its thumbnail (image). To help with your session planning, the length of each video is shown next to its title. All are under 10 minutes in length.
