About The Naples Sangha


The Naples Sangha is a nonsectarian Buddhist meditation and study group that began in 1998 in the living room of our founder and teacher, Fred Eppsteiner. Fred currently offers teaching one weekend a month in Naples (please check the calendar below for specific dates). Senior practitioners teach and lead discussions related to the current teaching themes on alternate nights.

Weekly Meditation

Day and Time: Every Sunday evening, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. 


Monthly Orientation: A one-hour introductory class for newcomers is available the last Sunday of each month at 5:00 p.m. It may be helpful but it is not necessary to attend a newcomer orientation prior to attending weekly sangha.

Location: Green Monkey Yoga Studio, Peacock Court, 6200 Trail Blvd., Naples, Florida 34108. Peacock Court is across U.S. 41 from Barnes & Noble. Wheelchair access is available.

Format: Please arrive about 15 minutes early. Enter the meditation room quietly, remove your shoes, and settle in. At 6:30 p.m. we practice mindfulness sitting meditation for 30 minutes, walking meditation for 15 minutes, sitting/loving-kindness meditation for another 20 minutes, then listen to a Dharma talk or participate in a Dharma discussion.

Contact: naples-meditation@floridamindfulness.org.

Naples Book Club

Day and Time: Once a month on Thursday evening, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. There is no cost but registration is required. For more information, please inquire at the Naples Sangha on Sunday evenings.
