May All Beings Be Well and Happy

Welcome to Sunshine Meditation Center (Mahamevnawa Florida)

The Sunshine Meditation Center is a branch of Mahamevnawa Meditation Monastery in Sri Lanka. SMC works as Mahamevnawa Meditation Center Florida (MMMF). The SMC will provide a quiet, peaceful refuge for all humanity (both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike) with facilities that promote meditation, personal reflection, and spiritual growth. It is our goal to lessen, and inevitably eliminate, the suffering of all beings. We will emphasize the universal teaching of the Buddha that can be applied to modern life. We encourage everyone to take what they can use, nothing more. We offer the following services, free of charge, to members and guests of the MMMF:

  • Personal counsel & spiritual guidance
  • Meditation instruction & guidance
  • Teach Buddhist philosophy & psychology
  • Perform Religious & Cultural Ceremonies
  • Teach Pāli and the Tipitaka
For those interested, we will hold many retreats throughout the year, as well.

Mahamevnawa (MahA-Meu-Nawa). is a Theravada Buddhist reform movement from Sri Lanka with branches around the globe. It is our vision to establish a Buddhist forest monastery in Florida where people of all ethnicities & creeds can master their mind, develop true inner peace and uplift their lives. We started at a temporary location in 2012 and offer a wide range of courses all free of charge and supported by the community. All are welcome to join our Meditation classes and Lectures on Early Buddhist Teachings.
