FCM offers teachings that are relevant to the realities of day-to-day life and lead to personal transformation. While practicing in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, we take inspiration and guidance from the full breadth of Buddhist teachings. We are creative and experimental in our forms since we desire to be relevant and accessible to American culture and issues.

As an engaged Buddhist community, our understanding and practice of the Buddha’s teachings – the Dharma – has developed organically over the past three decades. The 2,600-year old Buddhist lineage offers a deep and rich trove of traditional teachings and meditation practices. Through the interplay of this lineage with the needs, aspirations and aptitudes of our modern Western community, a natural unfolding of Dharma practice has evolved.

Under the guidance of our teacher, Fred Eppsteiner, FCM has created a three-part developmental path for Dharma practice and personal transformation: the Mindful Living Path, the Dharma Path, and the Wisdom Path. Its purpose is to take the practitioner from a life of unsatisfactoriness, superficiality, emotionality and egocentricity to a life of meaning, depth, stability of positive emotions, and selflessness.
