Natural Awakenings Tampa Florida

St. Pete Weekly Meditation Moves to New Kenwood Location

The Florida Community of Mindfulness (FCM) is now offering weekly meditation and mindfulness practice, from 7 to 8:45 p.m., on Tuesdays, at King of Peace MCC, 3150 5th Avenue North, St. Petersburg.

As a nurturing and supportive practice community taking inspiration from Thich Nhat Hanh, FCM offers a variety of practice opportunities to support people in their aspiration to cultivate mindfulness and compassion and lead awakened lives. The community was founded by Dharma teacher, Fred Eppsteiner, who received Dharma Transmission (authorization to teach in an authentic lineage descended from the Buddha) from Thich Nhat Hanh after more than four decades of deep study and practice with Buddhist masters in multiple lineages.

FCM's activities include the teaching and practice of mindfulness, meditation and the Dharma (teachings of the Buddha) through weekly group meditation sessions and Dharma talks; classes on mind-body awareness and relaxation; retreats; home-study intensives; workshops on the application of mindfulness principles to our everyday lives; and a variety of indoor and outdoor social events for the FCM community. The practices of deep listening and loving, mindful speech are used in all gatherings and activities. Most of these programs are offered at the FCM’s Tampa Center in Seminole Heights.
