On Saturday November 3, Loving More non-profit will be presenting a 1-day “Hotel Seminar” in San Francisco. Akien and Dawn will be presenting 2 workshops, along with a number of other stellar presenters from the Bay Area and elsewhere in the country. It’s the first in a series of one-day seminars to be held around the country, aimed at those interested in polyamory and other ethically non-monogamous relationship styles. To register, click here.

This seminar is especially suitable for newcomers to polyamory, therapists and other relationship professionals, and alternative-lifestyle-friendly folks interested in improving their communication and relationship skills. Also, if you’ve ever wished that you could attend one of the Loving More Retreats, but didn’t have the funds for the long weekend, or if you prefer a clothes-ON (rather than clothing optional) environment, this seminar is a great opportunity for you.

If this sounds interesting, please read the full announcement below. If you have specific questions, you can call Robyn at 303-543-7540 (phone is better than e-mail in her case). Or you can bounce them by me in this post, and I might be able to forward them.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to any other people or lists who might be interested in exploring relationship choice and improving their relationship skills.

Loving More “Loving Choices”
A Relationship Seminar Presented by
Loving More Non-profit Organization
Saturday November 3, 2007
San Francisco, CA
Clarion Airport
8:00am-6:00pm (plus optional evening Social!)

In today’s complex world of romantic relationships, finding and maintaining honest intimate relationships is both challenging and complex. We follow rules and relationship models based on societal standards that may not work for us personally. Polyamorous relating is even more complex. Our relationships start off like a dream come true but over time things fizzle, losing their original spice and excitement or becoming more complicated then we can deal with. With only one dominant and accepted model for loving relationships, it is not surprising that many people are struggling. We at Loving More are aware of these challenges and we are dedicated in helping people become aware of choices and creating new models for loving relationships that work.

Loving More is pleased to announce a new one day Seminar Series “Loving Choices” focused on choosing what is right for you. Who says that love has to follow a specific set of rules that limit how you love others? Why pretend to be someone you’re not? Do you feel like you can’t be your honest and authentic self? Why fake it? Are you already involved in a polyamorous (or other ethically non-monogamous) relationship and are looking to improve your relationship skills? If so…

We invite you to attend the Loving Choices seminar and learn ways to increase your enjoyment at being your authentic self!

Planned presentations include titles and topics such as:
* Relationship Paradigms and Choices
* Practicing Skills for Moving Through Jealousy
* Non-violent Communication (NVC, or Compassionate Communication)
* Polyamory as a Path to Peace
* Creating Empowering Relationship Agreements
* Using Tantric energy for increased connection and trust
* Polyamory and BDSM
* Exploring Intimate Friendship
* Polyamory 101

Who Might Wish to Attend:
* Those seeking to improve their polyamorous (or other ethically non-monogamous) relationships and deepen their connections with partners

* People new to or exploring polyamory as a possible choice in their personal relationships

* Therapists, counselors and others who work in the relationship field

* Those who are looking to better their relationships with new points of view

Following the Seminar is an optional Loving More celebration and evening social. This is a chance to meet and socialize with other poly friendly people in a relaxing atmosphere. Hors d’oeuvres will be provided, and a cash bar will be available courtesy of the hotel.

  1. Minx, thanks so much for posting this – LovingMore Loving Choices will be presented in cities around the country over the next year or so. Speaking as a LovingMore board member, we hope this additional approach to educating people about polyamory in a non-sexual environment will help new folks interested in learning more to do so comfortably.
