Classes, workshops, and retreats require registration. To register, click on the event; you’ll see a red REGISTER button at the end of the description if that program requires registration. Note: Blue events are peer-led events and green events are teacher-led events. To only see one or the other, click on the arrow on the upper-right corner of the calendar.

To scroll through the weeks, click on the blue arrows on the top-left corner of the calendar: blue arrow (2)

You can register for a multi-week course by clicking on any of the individual weekly sessions. You do not have to register for each session separately.

Residential retreats are displayed at the very top of the calendar.

All programs are offered freely in the spirit of generosity. To learn more about supporting the center and our teachers, click here.

Registration Policy

Common Ground is committed to giving priority for registration to members of some communities that have experienced historical oppression: people of color, trans, and non-binary. We hope this increases the likelihood of a sense of safety and belonging for members of these communities who often don’t see themselves represented in the community or in teaching roles. We recognize this policy benefits us all as we practice the Buddha’s teachings in an increasingly multicultural community and engage in the ongoing work needed to create a more equitable world. To learn more, contact Gabe Keller-Flores: 612-722-8260 or We welcome feedback on any aspect of this policy.
