"I am just beginning my relationship with the Mayu community, but I am so encouraged by those I meet at the center. They offer tools that help you connect to yourself so you can better connect with your world. Whether it's a meditation pillow, self-care services like the foot bath or classes for all levels, they are there to help."
"I brought my class of at-risk youth and they immediately felt the change in atmosphere from the usual chatter and busyness of their lives to calm and comforting quiet. They had an opportunity to sit in meditation for longer than they ever have before."
"Mayu Sanctuary is a unique spot that is community focused, non-denominational and welcoming to all. I recommend it to all who are interested in deepening their practice or finding better props and cushions."
"I'm a new member. I think a co-op is a great idea - it shares the responsibilities and resources."
"Over my 39 years in Denver, I dreamed about various retreats in the mountains. and never attended. To have a Meditation Cooperative in my neighborhood is a very unique gift. I have been a Full Member for three years now and plan on continuing well into the future."
"I like the soothing atmosphere of Mayu and the welcoming staff. I have expanded my social network by connecting with other members at Mayu and believe I have a strong support system and am part of a real community at Mayu. As I have continued to participate as a full-time member and to practice meditation regularly at Mayu, I have noticed that I feel less stressed, more calm and, when I am having a difficult time emotionally, I handle such situations more constructively."
"I have found Mayu to be a refuge to the busyness of life. It is a place to go to recharge, to unplug (literally and figuratively!) to just "be." As life becomes fuller and technology continues to expand, it is more precious and valuable than ever to have a place like Mayu."
"There are so many things about Mayu that make it one of my most 'special places,' but what most stands out to me is the marriage that Mayu creates of tranquil atmosphere and supportive community that is unparalleled."
"I have found a place that I can support and use, which benefits all involved and this feels good. It is well worth the investment to become a Full Member, and I actually save money instead of going shopping for stuff I don't need!"
"After having lived in an ashram for three years, Mayu has been a wonderful 'replacement' for me to have a community of meditators for a large part of the day whenever I feel inclined to be in an 'ashram' 'monastic' community kind of energy. I am so grateful that Mayu exists!"
"I found Mayu and became a Full Member almost immediately when I realized the value in savings for the weekly footbaths. Every time I come in carrying my burdens I walk out feeling so much lighter, with a return of my motivation to continue what I've signed up for! Thank you Mayu for being my escape into silence and solitude in the middle of city/school life!"
Experiencing a loss of identity, depression and a need for spiritual guidance, Mayu provided an atmosphere of calm, compassionate, self-guided realization; toward a life full of opportunity and joy through mindfulness. Mayu will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you to everyone who has helped shaped this wonderful community."
