We believe that long-term, consensual, hierarchically structured relationships contribute to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of those who choose to participate in them, as well as providing opportunities for personal growth and development.

We believe in the rights of all individuals in such relationships to create and employ those policies and practices which seems best suited to meeting the needs of their own unique relationships and households.

At the same time, we believe that establishing standards of practice facilitates our community's ability to recognize those who have achieved levels of proficiency in their journeys as Masters or slaves.

We believe that recognizing the accomplishments of such individuals is of value to those being recognized; to the community; and to those who seek to better understand the nature and value of Master slave relationships.

We believe that the value of creating a curriculum based upon such values and standards of practice offers an opportunity to improve our common understanding of the nature of Master slave relationships.

We believe in the value of offering mentoring to those who request it.

We believe in the goal of inclusion keeping our organization open to all who are of legal age and who have a legitimate interest in exploring the nature of consensual, hierarchically structured relationships.


"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.
We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence,
but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.
We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then is not an act but a habit."
