What we're about
My name is Alan & over the last ten years I have hosted hundreds of discussions centering around polyamory, open relationship & co-housing, in multiple communities such as Meetup, the Burning Man community and the New Hampshire Libertarian Community.
Previous topics discussed include;
• Communication & Boundary Setting
• Jealousy in Open (and closed) Relationships
• Relationship Anarchy
• Gender & Orientation Identities
• Polyamory 101
• Relationship Styles & Configurations,
• Etc, Etc, Etc.
After many events, we have come to believe it is beneficial, if not critical, for people exploring alternative relationships, to have other like minded people to discuss this critical aspect of their unconventional lives with.
But where to do so?
Though there are therapists who have personal experience in these areas, most do not. Nor do they, typically, have any specialized training in this area. Therapy is good for many things but, truthfully, people in open relationships are not (necessarily) crazy or emotionally unhealthy. It just feels that way sometimes....
What we believe people in open relationships actually need is to discuss the pitfalls that befell all of us as we navigate these uncharted waters, and learn how to best negotiate them.
To that end we are offering social events & discussions featuring topics relevant to anybody interested in open relationship, gender identity or co-housing.
