"True love begins with the act of going home to ourselves and our body. We need to learn to handle our body with compassion, in the way we eat, in the way we work. Keeping our compassion alive and releasing tension in our body brings us deep peace and wellbeing." --THICH NHAT HAHN

Maitri Works

Welcome to our wholehearted journey to wellbeing! Maitri Works is based on a philosophy of self-compassion that results in the radical self-care necessary to live your best life.

I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

– F. Scott Fitzgerald

One of my dear friends is a nurse and Public Health researcher – she told me recently, “Women are coming apart at the seams.” I agree. It’s more than just women, though, as I reflect on the exasperation and tears that flow out of my patients as they explain to me what their lives look and feel like. I hope you can use this site - our experiences, and the knowledge we’ve gathered along the way to navigate your life with more ease and better health.

When you evaluate your life – what are your goals to live a balanced, whole, meaningful life? It is my hope that mindfulness and self-compassion will make the experience of living even more rewarding; that by being present and purposeful, life will not pass by so quickly. And by being healthier, we’ll all get to hang out here a little longer
