A Concept Behind The Name of Maitri Verde
Maitri means love or loving-kindness and unconditional friendliness to oneself.
The word "verde" means green in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian representing the main color and healing power of nature.
Practicing Maitri is about making friends with yourself. It means seeing everything inside you and not running away, abandoning or turning your back on yourself. Just as you wouldn't give up on a best friend who's darker side began to show up. The more you catch yourself in attempts to run away, numb or distract yourself from reality, the more aware you become of this behavior pattern that was hidden in your unconscious and running on auto-pilot.
As the days, months, and years of Maitri practice pass, you find more and more compassion, understanding and tolerance towards others and the world.
American Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron has dedicated her life to teaching about loving-kindness and compassion—which begins with developing Maitri toward oneself.

we must first have compassion for ourselves.
