Foundation for Active Compassion


To empower people with profound, accessible spiritual practices that support their individual and collective work to become better people and to make a better world.

We provide powerfully transformative practices from Tibetan Buddhism, adapted into new forms that can meet the hearts and minds of people from all backgrounds and faiths, so as to help them bring out the best in themselves within relationships, service, and social action.

Through practices that awaken the heart of innate wisdom and compassion, we also provide methods that can support a complete path of spiritual awakening in our time.

Guided meditations of loving communion and awareness adapted from Tibet for people of all backgrounds and faiths. Everyone is welcome – those with little or no meditation experience, as well as those with much experience who want a fresh approach to their deepest nature.

Free of charge – The Buddhist practice of “dana” – generosity, offering – is welcome in form of a monetary donation. All $ goes toward materials and future scholarships for student retreats.
