About the Event
This fun, interactive workshop will cover practical skills to support your ethical non-monogamy (ENM) journey, as well as providing opportunities to meet other ENM folks and grow your ENM community. All ages, genders, and ENM styles (poly, open, swinging, etc.) are welcome! Come by yourself or with your partner(s). You’ll be invited to explore your relationship values, attachment style, emotions like jealousy and compersion, and emotion management skills, along with special topics including kink, queerness, and parenting. Whether you have years of experience in ENM partnerships, are new to the ENM lifestyle, or are simply curious, you’ll learn research-supported strategies that will be useful in all your relationships - and you’ll meet some great people who share your values and lifestyle.
