From the Teachers

We want to be pulled beyond ourselves, to be who we are really meant to be.
~ Lama John Makransky

Our Mission

To empower people with profound contemplative practices that support their aspirations to become better people and to make a better world.


Interfaith Learning

Meditations of Natural Wisdom and Compassion

The Foundation for Active Compassion (FAC) is actively engaged in interfaith learning as a core component of our mission. We regard experiential, practice-based interfaith learning as an imperative for spiritual development and for peace and justice in the diverse, pluralistic context of the current world...

Interfaith Participation in Workshops & Retreats

All of our workshops offered in non-Buddhist settings are targeted to interfaith learning.

Often participants find these meditations point them back to elements of their own spiritual formation with new eyes, lighting up elements of their Christian, Jewish, Islamic, or other faiths in surprisingly fresh ways.

Please feel free to explore the Calendar page of our website for more information about such events. All of our programming, even that which is not explicitly on the topic of interfaith learning, is infused with our value of deep and ongoing interfaith collaboration.
