Other Florida Sanghas
The following sanghas in Florida are connected to FCM but do not, because of time and distance, have the privilege of sharing regular meditation practice and Dharma talks with Fred Eppsteiner. These sanghas meet independently, although their members often participate in FCM retreats, intensive study periods and days of mindfulness. All follow the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh.
