As a nurturing and supportive practice community in the lineage of Thich Nhat Hanh, the Florida Community of Mindfulness offers instruction and support in mindfulness and meditation techniques, interest-based discussion groups, classes in the traditions and practices of Buddhsm, retreats, Intensive Practice Periods, and special events.
Teachings offered by Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner are open to all practitioners and focus on mindful living, self-awareness, compassion in relationships, and mind-body awareness through connecting with our breathing. Throughout each gathering, we employ deep listening without judgment and loving and skillful speech. Fred freely makes use of his study and practice within the major Buddhist meditative traditions to make the traditional teachings alive and relevant to modern practitioners.
No prior meditation experience is necessary to enjoy our sessions. We offer instructions and support to new people joining us for the first time.
