Do you live in your thoughts about the past or worries about the future? Do your emotions often cause stress and confusion? Do you get carried away by dramas.


Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation is a four-week course designed to support the practice of mindfulness, helping us develop the skills and attention to be fully present to our lives in the present moment, and to touch each moment deeply. It is intended for those new to mindfulness and meditation, as well as for those who want to review the basics and establish a more consistent daily mindfulness and meditation practice. The course includes basic instruction as well as an exploration of practical ways to bring mindfulness into daily activities.


Learning Objectives:

  • Systematically explore mindfulness of breathing, the body and physical sensations through sitting and walking meditation and the body scan practice.
  • Establish and maintain a daily meditation practice.
  • Practice mindful meditation to explore the emotions, thoughts, and overall awareness.
  • Apply mindfulness to difficult emotions and thoughts to avoid getting caught up in dramas.
  • Cultivate daily meditation and mindfulness practices so that mindfulness becomes an integral part of your daily life.

This four-week course will begin on Wednesday, May 5, 12, 19 & 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Classes will be held online. The cost is $75 for all four sessions. If you have questions, please contact us at info@floridamindfulness.org.


Class Instructors:

Bill Mac Millen has been a practitioner with the Florida Community of Mindfulness and a student of FCM's teacher Fred Eppsteiner since 2013. Aspiring to be of service to the community, he is on the Leadership Council overseeing the area of Center Care, a member of Thich Nhat Hahn's Order of Interbeing (OI), and participated in FCM's first Dharma Transmission Program.


Maggie Tudor was introduced to formal meditation in 2003 in Zen and Taoism.  Prior to joining FCM, Maggie studied and practiced in several traditions and lineages, continuously exploring and seeking true wisdom. In 2018, she was introduced to FCM and formally became a member and a student of Fred Eppsteiner. Quickly, Maggie's aspiration to help others and spread joy and love led her to serve in many roles in the Sangha. Most recently, she is on the Community Care team, became an Order of Interbeing Aspirant now awaiting ordination, and is now in her final year of the second Dharma Transmission Group. Outside of FCM, Maggie guides several groups and individuals through mindful meditation and practice as part of her professional work as well as in volunteer capacities.
