What's Going On Around Town?

As Drake raps, "I got enemies, got a lot enemies." Those enemies can come from within, as the habitual, maybe even painful, states of mind we can’t shake off. They can also come from outside sources — like that difficult co-worker. In her “Befriending Your Enemies” workshop, best-selling author Sharon Salzberg, cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, will show us how to look at the fear, anger and anguish generated by being stuck in us-vs-them mode. Bring your inner beasties and prepare to let them go. 7 p.m. Thurs., Feb. 9, MNDFL, 10 E. 8th St. Price. $50.

“We truly are better together" has become a motto at Yogamaya. The sweaty "Better Together" workshop asks that you to tap into your social network and bring a friend along for a class of sun salutes, playful asanas and hands-on assists in final restorative poses. 7-9 p.m., Fri., Feb. 10 at Yogamaya, 135 W. 20th St. Price, $65 per duo.

Anyen Rinpoche, a renowned Tibetan Master of Dzogchen meditation, will lead a talk, "Living and Dying with Confidence." 7 p.m., Fri., Feb. 10. Price, $25/$22.50.
