Opening Up to Opening Up: A deep-dive into non-monogamy (online).

Two 3.5-hour zoom sessions, with plenty of breaks, over two days.

This online workshop is for people wanting a deep-dive into alternative relationship models, including those that want to know more about where they sit on the spectrum of monogamous through to not-at-all monogamous.

Are you thinking about opening up your relationship, but don’t know where to start?

Are you already engaged in some form of non-monogamy / polyamory, but have a sense that things could be rolling more smoothly?

Are you conceptually interested in poly, but need help wrapping your head around pragmatics or jealousy?

We’re in changing times. Various expressions of polyamory are common conversations these days, along with other alternative relationship models… But solid, carefully thought-out and pragmatic education can be hard to come by, especially in a world that still, for the most part, only values monogamy. And while polyamory can be easy and very positive, it rarely goes smoothly without some deliberate work and planning.

To help with this, we believe you’ll find our workshop, ‘Opening Up to Opening Up (a deep-dive into alternative relationship models)’ useful.

This workshop is for people that want to know more about where they sit on a spectrum of monogamous to not-at-all-monogamous. It makes no assumptions that any type of relationship is right for all people. But it also appreciates that many people don’t feel quite ‘at home’ in the standard, off-the-shelf model of what a relationship is meant to look like.

This workshop is not designed as a breezy walk in the park. It’s a nuanced and in-depth deep-dive into what’s required for an intentional, deliberate relationship. We expect you to come out of it with a good sense of what you’re up for, and what you’re not up for.

The content of this workshop is respectful, ethically-informed, and non-judgemental. We’re aiming to supply the tools and information you need, so that you can understand and comfortably explore what might be right for you.
