Blue Lotus Buddhist Meditation Center
Blue Lotus.webp

Blue Lotus Buddhist Meditation Center (BLBMC) is a small meditation community located in Florida. We offer meditations and other classes to promote inner peace and compassion for all beings. BLBMC has the support of working monastics, originally from Sri Lanka, who are now building a  Buddhist practice on Florida’s suncoast. Meditations focus on the practice of loving kindness (metta) and mindfulness (sati). We encourage you to look at our calendar of events to explore Buddhism from a number of disciplines and facilitators. Most events are available online. We welcome both those who are new to the practice and those who have experience with meditation. We invite you to join our sangha activities to learn and grow with us.

Tiffany Razanno
A Queer Feminist Po-Up Bookstore

Tiffany Razzano, who lives in St. Petersburg, is a New York transplant with a passion for books and performance art. For over 15 years, she has been holding events at book fairs across Florida, hosting literary-themed drag and burlesque shows and putting on “murder mysteries and immersive theater stuff around Halloween.” Her work and her booth here today are an outgrowth of her annoyance at the state of the world and the state of Florida. Of her work she says, “We’re feminist, anti-racist-type folks, focusing on diverse voices and literature, particularly those that have been taken out of school and libraries, which we’ve seen way too much of in schools over the past year or two.”

Simply Greek by

Diana Susanne Wynnberry, a name that resonates with a fusion of international influences, traces her roots back to the U.S. while growing up amidst the cultural tapestry of Greece and Germany. Fluent in German, Greek, and English, Diana embarked on a culinary journey that led her to become a skilled Chef specializing in international cuisine. Following a successful stint running her own restaurant in Dubai, UAE, she returned to her Greek origins. Inspired to share the richness of Greek cuisine with the world, Simply Greek by Wynnberry emerged.

Now based in Sarasota, Diana's Greek Food Truck roams the city, delivering delectable flavors to various locations and making surprise appearances at well-known events. The calendar reflects scheduled stops, but the real excitement lies in the spontaneity hinted at through their social media – where culinary surprises unfold, bringing the essence of Greece directly to you.
