Taking this course won't help you at all. It won't make you better.

Because you're already fundamentally good.

Maitri is the art of developing an unconditional friendliness toward every part of our sweet selves—the tired, the mending, the broken, the wonderful, the always-changing.

Maitri is about kindness toward oneself, but it's about more than baths and epsom salts.⁠

It’s about making friends with the parts of ourselves we despise or bully or hide away.

It’s not about getting “better”—the better version of yourself is right here, right now.

And we'll help you recognize it.

What's inside the course:

3 live classes with Waylon.
(*Live course only.)

Join Waylon for 3 live classes with Q&A and community support.

Class schedule:

Saturday, February 6th

Saturday, February 13th

Saturday, February 20th

All classes start at 10 a.m. MST.

3 hours of video lessons
& 4 guided meditations.

Join Waylon with wonderful Buddhist teachers Linda Lewis, David Sanford & Sharon Salzberg for exclusive teachings & meditations. Whether you're an experienced meditator or brand-new to the practice, this ordinary wisdom may help illuminate your path.

Teachings to directly change & heal your life's path.

This course isn't philosophical—it's practical. It's about reality, and practice. That means it's there for you whenever (& wherever) the need for fear-dissolving sanity arises—at your desk, or in a relationship, or late at night.

*Savings end December 7th at midnight, MST.

What if Self-help isn't Helpful?

That's where Maitri comes in.

"I feel like the world needs this teaching."

This course is perfect for anyone going through heartbreak. Honestly, this couldn’t have come at a better time. I found myself nodding along and just feeling so much compassion for myself as I was listening to Waylon and Sharon Salzberg speak. I feel like the world needs this teaching. I can think of so many people who I know would benefit from this. And, I found myself already feeling lighter about my approach to life.

"I was so immersed I finished it in four days."

The timing of the Maitri self-paced course is a welcome hot cup of coffee or tea with a small wedge of dark chocolate on a stormy day.  I dove into this course with both feet, an open heart and an equally open mind. I was so immersed I finished it in four days. But, here is the joy, it is yours, take your time, let days or weeks pass before moving to the next lesson, or take it all in and know you can go back to read, watch, explore.
