Maitrī: benevolence, loving-kindness, friendliness, amity, good will, and active interest in others.
I have chosen this name because it represents what our practice is all about. I am so inspired by all of you beautiful people who have joined me since I started teaching in September 2017. Every practice that we join together, I am always filled with joy to see such a wonderful and kind group of people. So many friendly smiles, warm welcomes and greetings; a sense of community. It is for this reason, I offer us the name Maitrī. May we continue to offer ourselves, each other, and the world our loving-kindness.
