Elephant Academy's newest course is all about Maitri.

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.

It’s not about 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 fundamentally good version of yourself is right here, right now. And we'll help you recognize it.


Enroll today, and be the first to work through a course that's filled with heart, mindfulness, and compassion—from us, to you, and for you:
