What is one (or more) things you would like to see in your own community?

More of an openness to alternative lifestyles and forms of intimate expression.

What does "Being Real" mean to you?

Deep honesty and willingness to communicate--which often takes a commitment to learning how to communicate, as our culture is handicapped in the interpersonal communication arena.

Tell us your most recent revelation about yourself. Something you have learned recently?

My most recent revelation was that, although I have a primary partner whom I love dearly, I am interested in developing a second partnership and getting rid of any "hierarchy." That means seeing each relationship for its strengths and weaknesses and realities, instead of insisting that one person is a "primary" over all others. This was a hard realization for my partner to hear but he is remarkably open to redefining and honing in on what our partnership means/is all about.


Hi! My name is Janel, and I am interested in Network for a New Culture because I was recently living at the Twin Oaks Community in Virginia, where I was deeply involved in polyamory. Now that I'm in Sonoma Cty, I am interested in open-minded friends.
