Just had the honor to talk (listen) with Sharon Salzberg, a wonderful teacher of Loving-Kindness, or Maitri, or Metta—how to make friends with ourselves, so that we might enjoy empathy and be of real benefit to this world, instead of drowning in self-hate, pre-judgement of others, and war with our world.
Get her new book, Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World! I can’t wait to read it—she’s such a darned good writer and sweet and powerful human. ~ Waylon Lewis
If you’re inspired to go deeper, do our Maitri: How to Fall in Love with your Sweet Self course featuring an exclusive video with Sharon Salzberg on how to actually practice Maitri. (Half off now for preregistration.)
