My Title

Being compassionate, but sometimes compassion is challenging, sometimes compassion is painful, and sometimes compassion is soft and gentle. But for me it is something I am constantly working on, for myself and for those around me.
The fierce part really is to acknowledge that sometimes the most compassionate thing you can do is call someone out on their behavior and help them make it right.
One of the most important parts of compassion for me is that before compassion can be sent outward from one's self it must first be turned inward.
That is the hardest part. But part of being compassionate is being compassionate with your own feelings and issues. We are perfectly imperfect. Our lives are colored by our experiences. We don't always get it right or do right by others, but we keep trying and that's what matters.

Statement of Ethics

I am not eloquent like a saber, I am blunt like a club. I have strong beliefs. I have strong emotions. I am a gay man. I am a feminist. I am a witch.
When I speak, it is with the voice of thunder. Unequivocally loud and shockingly brief.

I choose my battles wisely, I choose to speak only when I have a clear understanding of that which I am speaking.
Which often leads me to remain quiet. I look for deeper understanding of all moments.

I support people in their journey on the path to their highest selves and the highest good for all.
My strength is in supporting the individual, bringing comfort and correction in turn.

I am the rock in the waves of the sea.
