Public Evening Lecture with Dr. John Makransky, PhD



"Self-Replenishing Compassion"

Guiding Teacher: Professor John Makransky, PhD; Boston College, Foundation for Active Compassion & Sustainable Compassion Training model developer.

In this public talk, which is open to the public, Associate Professor John Makransky will introduce the theory and practice of the Sustainable Compassion Training (SCT) method, helping participants explore their own experience of it and the questions it raises for them. SCT adapts a pattern of contemplative practice seen across faith traditions into a secular and inter-religious form aligned with areas of social psychology and neuroscience. SCT helps individuals cultivate a more inclusive and replenishing power of care and compassion for themselves and others that is less susceptible to bias, empathic distress, and burnout. In this method of practice, we experience ourselves both as embraced in a relational field of care and compassion, and as an extension of that field of compassion to others.

Dr. Makransky's Public lecture is Thursday, October 25, 4:30-6 p.m., in Gasson 305 on Boston College's main campus. There is no charge. To register, please email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  to let them know you plan to come.
