Next Practice Meeting Sunday, 12/20: Ben Guiding; Opportunities for Action on Line 3

By Minneapolis Insight

THU DEC 17, 2020

Dear friends,

Our next weekly practice session is Sunday, 12/20, from 10 - 11am. Register here to join. Ben will be leading.

Additionally, Minneapolis Insight has joined with other sanghas in the Twin Cities to start sharing opportunities for us to explore the intersection of activism and our practices. We practice to alleviate the suffering of all beings, and the work we do in our own hearts has a natural extension to work we can do in our communities. We'll share opportunities as they arise, and invite any of our community members to reach out and share ideas with us as well. Note that Minneapolis Insight is not organizing these events, but amplifying their messages so you can be aware.

Water Protectors are working diligently in Northern Minnesota to prevent the continued destruction of our environment by fossil fuel companies, specifically Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline. You can show support by joining a couple of events:

  • Today (12/17) at 2pm there will be a prayer circle live-streamed from nearby one of the construction sites. The event is being supported by Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light, and they are asking people to join via livestream to show support.

  • On Saturday, 12/20 at 2pm MN350 will be hosting a protest on the Marshall Ave bridge between Minneapolis and St. Paul.

When joining events in person, please evaluate your own risk for COVID-19, wear a mask, practice social distancing, and be mindful of how you interact with others following.

With metta for all,

Minneapolis Insight
