This is what Maitri isn’t.

Maitri isn’t about I’M SO SPECIAL, or even self-care, but rather about building the kind of empathy for yourself that will, if unleashed, enlighten our entire world. ⁠

It’s the best thing ever. It’s the foundation of a life well-lived. ⁠

And gosh our world needs you to be kind to yourself, right now.⁠

Learn how to be good to yourself.⁠

True love comes from making friends with all of ourselves. From finding our voice, finding the truth in our stories, and transforming our experience into wisdom, into caring, into service to others and our world.

Take a helpful leap:​⁠

> Join 9 live Elephant Academy classes, in community. Find your voice, write your stories. ⁠
> Practice maitri (Buddhist path of making friends with all of ourselves)⁠
> Witness how writing can be used to open ourselves up, learn, transform—and inspire others.⁠
> Publish your writing, with the help of mentors, editors, and Waylon.⁠
> Show up in your work, relationships, and world with authenticity, empathy, and joy.⁠⁠

Remember: Writing is not (just) for writers—it’s for anyone who wants to find their voice.⁠

Writing is for anyone who has a voice—and that is you.⁠
