Welcome To The Frederick Meditation Center!

The Frederick Meditation Center is located in downtown Frederick, MD just above The Tasting Room restaurant. We welcome new and experienced meditators, and offer a variety of meditation classes and workshops. If you are new to meditation don't worry - we were new once too - and will take the time to make you feel welcome, and answer any questions you have.

Specialty workshops and programs are offered year-round, and private meditation and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy sessions can be scheduled with our founder, Heather Stang. We are grateful you have found us, and welcome you into the community!


Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself

Start date: January 2, 2017

End date: February 6, 2017

Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm noon

Location: Frederick Meditation Center

5 Week Book Discussion and Practice Group.  Self-Compassion is the key to a happy and healthy life, yet in our culture it is so elusive. Fortunately, the practice of self-compassion can rewire your brain so that you can “tend and befriend” yourself. Each week Heather will lead you in a guided meditation from the book, followed by group discussion about how the practice and concepts in Kristin Neff’s book Self-Compassion are impacting our lives “off the mat.”


Sunday Afternoon Dharma Book Study Group

Start date: October 16, 2016

End date: May 29, 2017

Time: 1:00 - 2:30pm

Location: Frederick Meditation Center

Drop In! All Visitors Are Welcome. The Dharma Book Study Group will read and examine literature that presents the Dharma in a way that relates to our lived lives. We use the phrase “read and examine” because we are not reading books for truth as much for insight about the nature of our lives in particular and human experience in general. So we read and question the texts to gain knowledge and understanding of things that can bring about a greater flourishing of our lives.
