In Search of
the New Compassionate Male

I am in search of the New Compassionate Male. I am convinced that amidst all the turmoil in the world a New Compassionate Male is emerging as the New Archetype. I am on a journey to every corner of the planet to give voice to compassionate thought leaders.

I know there is a spark of compassion emerging within every man and within every woman, and compassion shows up in many forms; empathy in action to lend a helping hand or a non-judgmental ear, an intervention to save a friend, or giving one's life for another. Compassion in many forms, all aimed in some way for the greater good.

Regardless of gender, sexual orientation, nationality or religious tradition I am inviting all to join the conversation.




Upcoming Events

September 2021: Compassion Conference hosted by Compassionate-DFW

Where are all the compassionate men? What if more men could awaken the spark of compassion within themselves and in others? What would family relationships be like? How might it impact the community? Learn about the findings of a year-long study with both men and women on the topic of men and compassion, and learn about a proven and counterintuitive approach being used today to help more men ignite their spark of compassion.

October 17th - 18th - 8th Parliament of the Worlds Religions (virtual) - Two Panels Panel: Solar Light Lunar Light: Transforming Gender Dynamics

Note: The 1st Parliament of the World’s Religions, hosted at the historic World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, brought together people of faith from around the world. Some like Anagārika Dharmapāla, A.G. Bonet-Maury, and Swami Vivekananda traveled for months and across continents to serve as representatives of their faiths, and many more journeyed over weeks, through countries, and across oceans to attend what would become the birthplace of the modern interfaith movement.

The 8th Parliament of the World’s Religions, hosted for the first time virtually, will bring together people of faith from around the world in an instant. The virtual Parliament is a safe way to gather the world’s global interfaith movement and celebrate the enduring spirit and work of religious and spiritual communities striving toward a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.

My personal story of how and why I created a Contemplative Men's Circle: A guide for those who want to start their own circle~ This book has come out at the perfect time, like divine intervention has intended it.

~ It's a great book about developing a contemplative men's circle; it's both a personal account and a guide for men to learn and embrace the integration of head and heart.

~ Through much personal pain, the Author has shared great success with all of his brothers to learn and share with them and others.

~ This is a great book to read and review whenever you need to find your...self.

~ I highly recommend this book to all those men (and women**) who may have become disconnected, as some have unconsciously not intended to do so. Read the eBook as well and reconnect with self.

~ Get the book that shares hundreds of hours of experience to creating a successful men's circle from scratch.

**According to Clay, close to ~49% of women were recommending Circles of Men to their partner.
