In this video, Buddhist monk, Pema Chodron, talks about Maitri, the need for unconditional friendship with oneself.
This is a very important part of self-healing. It is only when we can accept ourselves unconditionally that we can heal. Otherwise we are contnually fighting ourself, creating a war-zone in our body and igniting stress that releases all the stress hormones that are not conducive to healing. Self healing is holistic healing. It is about healing every part of us, not just our body or our mind. It is about becoming whole.
