Attention: This meeting there will be a break around 8 pm, at which point the people in the Our Whole Lives Adult Sexuality Education Course will share their snacks with us, and some of them will join the discussion when we reconvene. They're cool and have been briefed on the importance of confidentiality and a nonjudgmental attitude in the meeting.
The course started in April and will end in a few weeks. It is a paid course, so you'll have to wait for the next session to participate.
THE PALI PATHS HAWAII POLYAMORY GROUP
Polyamory: An ethical alternative to cheating. The Pali Paths Discussion Group meets the 2nd and 4th Thursday evening of the month to talk about the challenges and rewards of honest, loving, and intimate relationships with more than one person. We welcome people involved in, interested in, or just curious about polyamory.
We meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday, at the best little meeting room we could find, located at 2500 Pali Highway in the 2nd floor meeting room.
WHAT IS PALI PATHS?
Pali Paths' primary activity is a polyamory discussion group which meets twice a month at a local church and is open to anyone interested in ethical and responsible alternatives to monogamy and the nuclear family. We share new ideas about romance, family, culture, ethics, child-rearing and more. The atmosphere is comfortable, safe, kid-friendly and relaxed. We also hold potluck gatherings, camping, the occasional boat ride, and other special events.
Pali Paths is NOT a swinger's group or a single's group or a place to pick people up; it's a discussion group on new forms of family and new models for relationships.
Pali Paths is open to all. We welcome people of any age, race, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, sexual preference or relationship status. Our only rule is respect. Where and when do you meet? What sort of things do you discuss? What is the group like? See Meetings for more information. For more information about polyamory, links, books and articles, see the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and More Info. New paradigm relationships are an essential ingredient for community evolution as we move into the twenty-first century. The ecology, philosophy, economy, sexuality and lifestyles of the future will require us to open ourselves to new and ancient modes of relationship. If you're interested in exploring new realms in intimate relationships, please contact us at [masked]
What's in a name? Love by any other name...
You folks from the Mainland are probably wondering where the name "Pali Paths" comes from. Well, pali is a Hawaiian word meaning a mountain ridge or cliff. There is a very famous pali which stands between the city of Honolulu and some of its Windward Oahu suburbs. In fact, the Unitarian church where our Polyamory Discussion Group meets is located on a road called the Pali Highway which runs from Honolulu to a town called Kailua on the other side of the Koolau Mountains.
Anyway, when Pali Paths got started, we looked for a name which would evoke our polyamorous theme without being blatant about it—a name which to the uninitiated could sound like a hiking club or other unremarkable group. So, since pali is pronounced just the same as poly, Pali Paths seemed like a good choice.
Also, we love puns.
