Here is also a short interview with him, regarding the group:
Please tell us a little bit about you.
I'm a human being. I enjoy good energy. I live in the moment.
What was your motivation for creating the Facebook group 'Compassionate Anarchy'?
A longing I held for a flourishing community where folks are ready for healthy freedom. A mystical essence that I felt I was not alone in feeling... about the potential for human life. A longing for companions on that wavelength...
Are you currently working on any side projects? Tell us a little bit about your other work.
I volunteer in a prison, working with inmates on personal healing.
Tell us about your path into anarchism.
Anarchism was always in my heart, from a very young age. I was always a very spiritual person... I was drawn to situations that allowed me to express the full range of my spirit... and repelled by situations that didn't. Dropping out of college, dropping out (almost) of monetary society, and becoming a Quaker were important steps in my journey. Meeting Sterlin Lujan was such a profound experience for me... and he called himself an anarchist. It felt right to call myself an anarchist then. But the identity has always been secondary to the energetic essence for me... I like to say (inspired by the Dao de Jing) that anarchy that is called anarchy is not anarchy. It is an experience to be lived... not explained.
The word 'anarchy' has such a negative connotation in so many people's minds, why do you think that is?
I suppose a lot of people don't trust humans to be good. So free humans is something to fear... and the word anarchy becomes infused with fearful energy. Which people don't like feeling, so it gets a negative connotation.
What would you want to tell those people?
Open your heart to the goodness in yourself, and the goodness in others. Find courage to create a life from this goodness, and support others doing the same.
Tell us a little bit about your personal philosophy.
Seek health. Seek genuine connection with other people. Seek love.
