Our Community and Practice Centers

The Florida Community of Mindfulness (FCM) welcomes you to visit its physical centers in Tampa, Naples, and St. Petersburg, Florida. A sitting group with strong connections to FCM is also active in Fort Myers. And “virtual” communities support members from areas such as Canada, Alaska, North Carolina and beyond.


Tampa Practice Center
6501 N. Nebraska Avenue, Tampa, FL


FCM’s main Practice Center is in Tampa. Initially founded in a member’s home in 1997 by four people who had attended a Thich Nhat Hanh retreat in Key West, it grew organically and moved to rented space in a yoga studio for a number of years. In 2012, FCM acquired its own Practice Center on Nebraska Avenue, in northern Seminole Heights, Tampa. We have worked as a community to transform what had been a deteriorating and underutilized church property into a thriving Practice Center and educational facility that has become the home for the entire FCM community. We are currently beginning construction of a residential hall, Great Cloud Refuge, that will be completed in late 2018 and which will give us the capacity to offer frequent residential retreats. It is our intention that FCM’s Tampa Practice Center will be an oasis of beauty, serenity and inspiration for all.
