Mayu Calendar

Your meditation journey is personal. It doesn’t need to be isolating. Classes bring like-minded seekers together.

Mayu has no affiliation with a specific meditation teacher or lineage. Instructors who lead classes  in our sanctuary come from a wide range of backgrounds.

Meet the Teachers          Before You Arrive          While You’re Here
