What we're about

Welcome to Mayu's Meetup calendar of events.

While Mayu Sanctuary has closed as a physical space for meditation and related practices, online classes through this Meetup site by many instructors affiliated with Mayu will continue for the foreseeable future. A group of instructors has come together to maintain this site, the mailing list, and the Mayu website (https://mayusanctuary.com/).

In honor of the founder and previous manager, Cierra McNamara, and with her blessing, we will carry forward the Mayu name and the spirit of the organization that she founded – to provide classes and events that nurture the wisdom and spiritual growth of all who engage here – as instructors, as students, as community members, and friends.

Empowered Agency

How much in life is our responsibility?
What do we have control over?
How can we find the balance to take the first and let go of the second?

Using meditative grounding techniques from Buddhism and wisdom from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras (philosophy), this workshop explores how we can build trust and faith in our own capacity as humans to successfully navigate the world.

No experience of Patanjali or Buddhism needed. Simply bring a journal/pen for notes.

Dharma Wednesdays

Link visible for attendees

Dharma Wednesdays is an on-going community exploration of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Taken from different translations, one or two Sutras are presented each week, many addressing current events and others shedding light on navigating the spiritual path. Each class includes discussion, meditation or visualization, and connection with like-minded souls. No previous experience is necessary.

Topics include the 8 Limbed Path, Kriya Yoga, meditation methods, karma, ignorance, discernment and the promise that future suffering can be avoided. Please look for timely messages that announce that week's topic.

Tibetan Buddhist Lecture & Meditation with Lhoppon Rinpoche - Facebook Live

Link visible for attendees

On a weekly basis, via Facebook Live, Lhoppön Rinpoche will give a talk on meditation and answer questions sent to him by students.
After his lecture, Rinpoche will lead us in silent meditation via Zoom.

  1. If you would like to attend just the LECTURE on Facebook Live, then first click on "Attend Online". Once you are attending this event, you will see a link to the "online event" on the right side of this page. Please click on the link which will take you to Mipham Shedra's Facebook page. On that Facebook page, click on "Videos" in the Menu on the left hand side. After you open "Videos", on Sunday morning, you will see the "live" link. The lecture will last about an hour and a half.

  2. If you would like to attend BOTH the LECTURE and the SILENT MEDITATION, kindly email your request to [masked] for the Zoom link. If you can send that request no later than one day ahead, much appreciated. You will then attend both the lecture AND the silent meditation via Zoom, total of approximately 2 hours.
    Rinpoche requested meditation participants to attend by Zoom so he can have more of a connection with you.

Lhoppon Rinpoche is a Tibetan Lama who grew up in northern India in a Tibetan Refugee settlement. At age five, he entered a Buddhist monastery and trained continuously through university level and beyond. He has been teaching Tibetan Buddhism and meditation in the USA since 2001. He has a wonderful sense of humor and welcomes people of all faiths and spiritual experiences. Rinpoche is a master at explaining Buddhism to the western mind. Sitting with him is a profound and unique opportunity to explore meditation at a level few get to experience. Rinpoche has a deep intellectual and spiritual understanding of the teachings he transmits and a remarkable ability to communicate these deep truths to his students through metaphors and stories that make complex secrets of the inner experience easily understandable.
