The Sarasota Mindfulness Institute is working to help make Sarasota a happier, healthier place to live. Please join us by participating in our mindfulness programs.
What we offer:
We offer drop-in meditation groups three times a week. We are a non-religious organization. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us.
We also offer an MBSR 8-week course several times a year.
Get an increased sense of personal well-being by creating beautiful images by drawing structured patterns in a focused manner.
We have many references to on-line resources, books and articles on mindfulness.
See our calendar for a listing of our weekly activities.
