The Minnesota Threshold Network was formed in 2008 to educate ourselves and others about the environmental, emotional and economic benefits of a more natural, less commercial approach to death, including conscious dying, home vigils, family-directed funerals, and natural burials.
In 2010, MTN initiated legislation that gives Minnesotans more choices to care for our own deceased. The legislation allows a public viewing of an unembalmed body on private property and other choices.
Meetings are held monthly except during summer. Large public forums happen annually in June. Trainings, classes, and film screenings are held periodically. Threshold volunteers educate and support families who choose to care for their loved ones after death. MTN speakers give presentations on family-directed after-death care and green burials at churches, hospices, community groups, libraries, universities, and professional conferences.
Meetings are free and open to all.
While MTN works to build good relationships with local businesses whose interests align with ours, we don’t endorse specific commercial enterprises.
