Becoming a Member of FCM

We invite you to become a member of the Florida Community of Mindfulness and to join us in making the Buddha’s teachings of awakening, understanding and compassion more widely available. 

FCM members are practitioners of meditation, whether newcomers or long-established, who wish to become students of our Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner, to regularly participate in the life of our practice community, and to support our goals and activities.  As members of the FCM community, we encourage and support one another in our practice in order to create greater peace, harmony and happiness in our lives and our communities, and to let go of our habitual patterns of dissatisfaction and suffering.

All FCM members, from our teacher Fred to the newest student, are involved in sharing our sincere efforts and our time, energy and resources to build our community, develop our individual and collective practices, and to be of benefit to our world and all living beings.

Membership Categories & Benefits

FCM membership is available in three categories.  Many of our members join us in the Basic Membership category, and are able to participate fully in all FCM activities and events.  For those who are able to make a greater financial commitment to support the work of our teacher and our community, please consider becoming Supporting or Sustaining Members.

  • Basic Membership: $300 per year for individuals, $480 for a family membership. This level includes individual interviews with our teacher, Fred, for private consultations about your practice and its application to your daily life, mentorship with an experienced sangha member, access to live streamed Dharma talks and "member only" archived Dharma talks on the web site, the opportunity to register for FCM intensives and retreats including solitary retreats under Fred's direction at Empty Cloud Cottage, use of the Practice Center library, and invitations to members-only events.

  • Supporting Membership: $600 per year for individuals, $960 for family membership. For those who can make a higher financial commitment to supporting the work of FCM, this level includes all the benefits of Basic Membership, plus free participation in all FCM intensives.

  • Sustaining Membership: $1,200 per year for individuals, $1,800 for family membership. This level, for those able to provide substantial monetary support to FCM, includes all benefits of Basic and Supporting Membership plus free participation in all FCM classes and workshops.

Reduced Rate Membership: It is our teacher’s and community’s intention that no-one is denied membership in FCM due to financial considerations. If you are unable to afford the cost of Basic Membership, please contact us at membership-coordinator@floridamindfulness.org and together we will work out an affordable membership payment. Your membership payments may be made on an annual or quarterly basis. 

For members who wish to make financial contributions to FCM over and above their annual membership fees, please click here.
