    Class Instructors

    Jacqulyn Schuett stepped on the Path of Dharma in 1999 when she visited Plum Village for her first retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh. The sign at the entrance, ‘You Have Arrived,’ foreshadowed the sense of home she felt in the intimate environment of this small retreat. Her study with Fred Eppsteiner, through retreats and Intensive studies, began shortly thereafter. In 2015 she was ordained into the Order of Interbeing (OI) and provides support for both the Tampa Practice Center and the St. Petersburg Sangha. Jacqulyn also serves as a mentor and leader of introductory classes.


    John McHarris began practicing the Dharma in 1990 with teacher Shinge Roko Sherry Chayat Roshi at the Zen Center of Syracuse, Hoen-ji. Between the mid 1990s through 2016, John continued his practice while living overseas in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe. During his career as a humanitarian aid worker with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), his focus has been on hunger, food security and nutrition. In 2010, John had the good fortune to meet his teacher Fred Eppsteiner in southwest Florida and has since been practicing with Fred and FCM in Naples.

    What is the benefit for spiritual practice of understanding the brain? Over 2600 years ago, the Buddha, through his own profound experience, “woke up” to his true nature though deeply understanding and transforming his own mind. His profound insights have since inspired many to walk this path. Neuroscience, the study of the brain, is relatively young by comparison, but is proving very useful in understanding the role that the body – particularly its nervous system – plays in shaping the mind.

    Today we are gaining a clearer understanding of how strengthening our neural circuitry is related to transforming our mind, from understanding and interrupting reactivity to supporting greater wisdom, contentment and inner peace. In this workshop, we will share this understanding, including:

    • An overview of the brain’s primary “job” and how it functions - how does your brain actually work?
    • How thinking creates our reality and why what we think - even though in the privacy of our own minds - is so important for our wellbeing 
    • Can changing your mind actually change your brain?
    • The beneficial results of concentration, loving kindness, and other meditation practices on “re-wiring” the brain and transforming the mind

    Course Objectives:

    • To understand the anatomy, basic neurochemistry and biology of the nervous system
    • To understand the various subsystems that are included in the nervous system and how they are integrated
    • To understand the interface between thinking and brain function
    • To integrate our understanding of our nervous system with our practice of mindfulness and meditation so that we can apply these teachings and insights to promote wellbeing

    The course is structured to give a working understanding of the anatomy and function of the brain and is designed for practitioners of mindfulness and meditation. Our premise is that a better understanding of your brain can lead to a better mindfulness practice and meditation experience to support overall wellbeing. The workshop leaders will use their training and experience in medicine, Buddhism, mindfulness, and meditation to create an environment for workshop participants to learn practical and easily applicable means to facilitate the workshop’s goals. Presentations, mindfulness practice, and guided experiential meditations will all be utilized during the workshop. The suggested fee for this workshop is $40 ($50 for CE credits), with reduced rate participation also available.


    Please join us to learn more about how the emerging field of neuroscience informs the ancient wisdom of Dharma practice.

    In this online session for FCM members, we will be using our minds, senses and art supplies to do simple projects that deepen our mindfulness. We also will be sharing deeply with others the thoughts, feelings and insights that arise. Each class will begin with an exercise to help us to become centered and then move on to an art activity that will help us to develop the qualities of the awakened heart.


    The intention of this offering is to allow people to experience practice in a different way. All sessions will be grounded in mindfulness. These classes do not attempt to teach techniques making art but do use art as a conduit to practice.


    Instructions and supplies on how to prepare will be in your confirmation email. Because participants are sequestering at home, materials will be those commonly found around your house. Please join the Zoom call with everything you need 10 minutes before the class so that you have time to settle before we begin.


    Beth Schroeder, founder of CAWM, is a lifelong artist and former Arts in Healing coordinator for Naples Healthcare System. She has been practicing Buddhism since 1997, when she took the 5 Precepts with Thich Nhat Hanh at the Omega Institute. She has been a student of Fred and member of the Florida Community of Mindfulness since 2003.
