"The meditation session I went to at Mayu significantly helped me deal with my level of stress. I felt comfortable and still."
"Since participating in meditation classes at Mayu, my mind is less cluttered with repetitive thoughts, I have better concentration, sleep better, and have an overall sense of well being."
"I was experiencing depressive, overwhelming thoughts when I opted to take a meditation class at Mayu. I found the class to be perfect for a beginner, and it didn't feel inappropriate for someone who does not consider herself 'spiritual.' I found the class to be practical, inclusive, and helpful as I tried to increase my daily experiences in mindfulness. I loved my instructor and the ambient, peaceful environment."
"Mayu absolutely lives up to its name: a sanctuary. Meditating in the different rooms depending on my mood or learning Qigong have both allowed me to deepen my spiritual practice and connect with myself. These have aided with my on-going management of depression and anxiety. I'm forever grateful for Mayu and the staff there. I would recommend that anyone give the space a chance!"
"The classes I have attended have been wonderful. Mayu is such a calming place and it is so nice to get away from the constant 'connectivity' of the modern world and to instead connect with myself and other meditators."
"After five years of participation in the Mayu classes I continue to learn practices that help me realize that true joy is deeper than happiness that comes temporarily from pleasures and successes. Learning to accept the events in life, to experience compassion for myself and others, to develop a peace despite outer circumstances, and to love life are significant lessons that have changed my life day by day."
"Mayu provides a calm space for my spouse and friends to balance our lives for the spiritual and energetic needs that we have. The classes have allowed me to expand on what I've learned from other vocations and continue my journey with new practices that are valuable beyond words."
"I first visited Mayu Sanctuary as I was beginning to meditate in order to overcome some issues with anger and anxiety. Although I had started a meditation practice on my own, it wasn't until I took a beginners meditation class at Mayu that everything really clicked for me."
"I was never able to meditate until I learned Qigong meditation with Sarah. She is an incredible instructor. The peaceful and beautiful environment in Mayu, as well as the community, has helped me bring peace and spirituality in my life."
"I choose Mayu to learn meditation because of the calm and inviting environment I felt and saw from the website. My one visit to Mayu has changed my life. I feel optimistic and recharged about my new path and spirituality. In Tamme's guided meditation class, I relaxed and experienced a sense of peace that I haven't felt since I was a pre-teen, and I am 41. I am ecstatic and look forward to becoming a member, enjoying all the amazing services, health benefits, education, positive community connections/support and continuing my spiritual path to peace & enlightenment at Mayu!"
"I notice I've been able to release thoughts that aren't serving me or making me happy more quickly and easily. I've learned to struggle less. I enjoy the Sunday class and I've told many people about Mayu."
"I am grateful for a place I can feel a part of with my co-op membership. I attend classes with a sense of ownership and responsibility."
