WHO THIS IS FOR: *This is for individuals or couples who are curious, exploring, or transitioning into consensual (ethical) non-monogamy and/or polyamory. This is the place to find support for your challenges, fears, curiosity, and questions in a safe, non-judgemental, and confidential environment. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, it can feel lonely and confusing as you embark into unchartered territory.
*If you’re currently in a relationship and your significant other isn’t aware of your desires to open up, you can count on this being a safe space to get clarity for yourself and perhaps the courage to eventually explore it with him/her/they.
*This is not a place where we condone cheating, betrayal, lying, or dishonesty. Ethical non-monogamy/consensual non-monogamy is for the mature and conscious individual who is serious and committed to speaking honestly and living authentically. This is not a light matter, but it’s a whole lot of fun and a fast track to self-discovery!
WHY THIS GROUP EXISTS: This group was born because a sense of community and resources were lacking and missing for the individuals and couples I’ve helped guide into non-monogamy. I believe we’re shifting into a new paradigm of how we live and love. People are craving for more knowledge and are ready to be better equipped to make more conscious and authentic choices to live an empowered, limitless, and expansive life. This is where you can discover and re-define how you do love!
WE ARE TRAILBLAZING LOVE LEADERS! Old ways of doing things no longer seem to be working and structures/institutions that have defined how we live are slowly crumbling. If we are to forge a new way of living, we must forge a new way of loving. There can be no peace on earth if there is war in love.
WHAT THIS IS NOT + GROUND RULES We encourage connections to be made, but this is not a place for hooking up, match-making, swapping or romance. So if that’s what you’re looking for, this is not the space for it. With that said, if any behavior/communication lacks respect and/or makes others feel unsafe, intimidated, or bullied, you’ll be kindly removed from the group and not permitted back. Please do not directly contact any member of this group unless you have met them at one of the meetup gatherings and have a verbal consent for contact. If you feel you’ve been approached by someone who’s not respecting this request, please inform the admin leader. Understanding this and respecting our members is important for everyone to feel safe.
If you have not visited the group in over 3 months, you will be removed from the group but you’re welcome to re-join. Your participation on-line or in person is greatly appreciated in our community and impacts the cohesiveness that’s necessary in order to create a safe space.
WHAT WE DO: Share. Listen. Play. Explore...this will feel like part therapy, workshop-y, and definitely FUN!
COMMON QUESTIONS WE’LL BE ADDRESSING:
Is this right for me/us and how will this work?
How do I bring this up to my wife/husband as something I’d like to try?
When is it appropriate to share this when I’m dating?
