“On my watch”
The protocols, (rules) Of the School of shadows were hard-won, through trial and error, and also draw from formal and traditional BDSM practices, as well as common sense, and a non-religious spirituality that sees all beings as equal, and special.
It is with these safeguards that I instruct, now in my 30th year of this practice, and they are the principles and groundwork that constitute the basic Philosophy of our school.
My watch is my word
My sanctuary – My honor – My compassion for others
1: No one is damaged, physically or emotionally, on my watch
2: No one is disrespected on my watch
3: No one is Taken advantage of on my watch other than by specific agreement
4: No money is exchanged on my watch. Gifts are allowed, and an initial gift is a requirement, however it can be anything from a card, to a flower or chocolate. it is merely symbolic.
5: No one’s name, identity, professional life, or personal information is ever revealed other than in anonymous form with their own consent.
6: No hard drugs will ever come into play during training on my watch
7: No one who is mentally unstable, emotionally sleepwalking or in shock will be trained
8: No one under the legal age of 18 will ever be spoken to by someone in their capacity at OSS
9: The physical, emotional and Spiritual well-being of all trainees/submissives is the first priority
10: On my watch, all the emotion, intensity, power, lust and balance I can bring, is a sacred duty.
11: The rights of submissives and slaves shall be clearly defined, always respected, as will their stated boundaries and limits, and no training shall occur without the use of a safeword, or escape mechanism.
12: All potential trainees/submissives/slaves will be subject to a screening process, including emotional and psychological inquiries before even being considered as a student in the School Of Shadows.
13: Honor, grace, honesty, diligence, study, and compassion are the driving principles of the school of shadows, and of our personal sexual and spiritual culture.
