Active Compassion

The Active Compassion team is a diverse collective of people in our community interested in applying their Buddhist practice in the fields of social, environmental and planetary engagement. We see this as a natural flow-on from our practice of the Buddhism and in accord with the path of the Bodhisattva – one who is intent on practicing wisdom and compassion to alleviate the suffering of all sentient beings.
