"Mayu Sanctuary has been serving as a refuge for me. Their spaces are comfortable and peaceful. Occasionally one needs a neutral space to practice because even one's quiet home might have distractions. Mayu provides that space."

"I have visited Mayu and I find the place to be best for meditation. There are several options for seating. You can sit near a water fountain or in big room, or in total peace in the retreat room. After meditating there I felt so peaceful, calm, soothed and relaxed. There should be more centers like Mayu."

"I used to work in a pretty stressful environment at a very busy restaurant. Often times I would be around the area early because of anxiety about getting to work, and I would stop into the sanctuary for clarity and to help get my mind right before going into work. It always improved my shift and my ability to handle it."

"I joined Mayu because I was in a very painful place in my marriage. It helped calm me and relax me just to walk in there. I would get a headset and pick a meditation to listen to as I soaked my feet in a warm foot bath, wrapped myself in a cozy blanket and sipped herbal tea! It was my heaven away from all the noise. My ME TIME! It helped me start to develop my own meditation practice and to feel more comfortable getting started doing meditation."

"Mayu has been an invaluable resource for me.
