MTN Twin Cities core team member Kyoko Katayama will once again be offering her Befriending Death: Meeting Impermanence with Courage, Love, and Equanimity class at Common Ground Meditation Center starting next week!
In this six-week long class, we explore how we relate to death and dying–our own and that of others; some of the rituals and care involved in end of life; grief. We practice relating to death as a teacher and friend who can break our heart yet awakens us to live …more fully.
The class is Buddhist in orientation. Some familiarity with Buddhism and meditation will be helpful. All programs are offered free of charge at Common Ground but donations are welcome. Go to the CGMC website for more information and to register on-line.
Wednesdays, September 28 to November 2, 2016, 10:30am to 12:30 pm
Common Ground is located at 2700 East 26th Street, Minneapolis (click link for map).
