Bring your questions, quandaries, insights, ideas, tribulations, and theories....and most of all, bring your desire to share ideas in a mutually beneficial and respectful way. **Our meetings will be 2 time per month, on the 1st and 3rd sundays of every month while we are sheltering in place.

EAST BAY: Poly Women's Support Circle

Location visible to members

**RSVP's do not reflect actual attendance. Events are listed on multiple calendars.** **This is a pointer entry ONLY. To attend this meetup, you MUST JOIN the official meetup at: http://www.meetup.com/Polyamory-Womens-Support-Circle-EastBay/ Please contact the event host (Kirsten) for further details AND join her meetup group: http://www.meetup.com/Polyamory-Womens-Support-Circle-EastBay/ More details below! From the Organizer: This is a support group for polyamorous women held at a private home in Berkeley. Non-smoking, non-wheelchair accessible, pet free home. Near to Ashby BART, and AC Transit buses. Lots of free, unrestricted parking. Group open to all self-identified women interested in polyamory. Polyamory is the theory and practice of openly maintaining multiple sexual, romantic, or intimate relationships. A safe space for all sexual orientations. **Join at http://www.meetup.com/Polyamory-Womens-Support-Circle-EastBay/ ** to get scheduled Meetup dates. **You must RSVP for each meeting**, please don't just show up. I (Kirsten) need to have a head count, ahead of time, and it is helpful for other potential attendees to know how many people will be attending. We offer each other mutual support for facing the challenges involved in choosing, exploring, creating, and maintaining polyamorous or otherwise consensual open relationships in our lives. This means that the group is also designed for women who do not identify as polyamorous, but are involved with someone who is, or are in an open relationship and are not the party involved with another person/s.The group is also for those who are seriously curious about polyamory or consensual non-monogamy as a possibility for themselves, or are curious about the possibility of being in relationship to someone who is polyamorous or consensual non-monogamous. We honor each other's own definition of the term, "polyamorous relationship". Meetings are conducted using principles for maintaining anonymity, non-judgmental and non-violent speech with one another, and no 'cross-talk'. Meetings will be moderated by organizer to ensure, to the best of her ability, that participants leave the meeting feeling heard, honored, and edified.

SAC: Monthly Poly Happy Hour

Location visible to members

See the main Sacramento Polyamory meetup group for details and any time/date changes: http://www.meetup.com/Sacramento-Polyamory/ and/or check in Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SacramentoPoly/?fref=nf Information copied from the March 2019 event listing: This is an (ir)regularly scheduled meetup for non-monogamous folks of all stripes in the Sacramento area, from long-timers to those newly interested in exploring more. Singles, couples, polycules, triads, hierarchists, relationship anarchists, kinksters, non-kinksters, queer, straight, of any gender... are welcome. (Did I miss anyone? If you're practicing or interested in some form of non-monogamy this is the right place.) This is an informal space to mingle, make new friends, and catch up with old ones. We ask that you respect others' pronouns, boundaries, and relationship choices, and practice affirmative consent. Ask before initiating physical contact like a hug, and feel empowered to respond, "no thank you"! Please support our lovely venue, New Helvetia, by buying a drink, alcoholic or otherwise. They do not serve food but you are welcome to bring in your own and there are several take-out places nearby. This event is cross-posted to the Sacramento Polyamory Facebook group, so there will be more attendees than what shows up in the RSVP here. Don't worry, you won't be alone. :p
