SMI IS MOVING!
Beginning August 31st, the Sarasota Mindfulness Institute (SMI) will hold our open Wednesday (6pm) & Friday (12pm) meditations in the Emerson Library at the Unitarian Universalist Church (UU), located at 3975 Fruitville Road. All of our other classes will also be moving to the UU Church at the same time.
Although we feel some sadness leaving our downtown Dolphin Street “home” of four years, we are looking forward to our new location at the UU Church, where they have welcomed us with open arms. Although SMI is a secular organization we share the UU belief in inclusiveness and a respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every person. This move will substantially reduce our rental costs, and allow us to provide more scholarships and outreach programs to local schools, not-for-profit agencies, and other community groups and organizations. We understand that this change of location may inconvenience some of our members, but we invite you to make this move with us and keep SMI going strong! If you can arrive 15 minutes early for meditation to help with setup or be a greeter, please speak with a meditation facilitator or contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A 6-week program for women who would like to explore their relationship with food and body image. Starting Monday, Oct. 10, 2016, 6:00-7:30pm.
