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!
