About this Event

A mini workshop for those new to exploring open relationships and honest non monogamy.

There's only so much you can learn about honest non monogamy from a book or online discussion forum.

Few books on polyamory manage to speak to the full spectrum of non-monogamous experiences, many discussion forums are dominated by drama and gate-keeping, and very little information exists out there (so far) about trauma-informed approaches to honest non-monogamy.

For several years I've taught and refined my 101 course, and I'm now thrilled to offer it online for folks exploring non-monogamy around the world.

This is THE course for anyone new to polyamory, and is also offers a refresher for those going through transitions about the ways they do non-monogamy.

From a trauma-sensitive mindset, we explore why we each crave multiple relationships, look at what types of open relationships there are, and consider the long term visions for where the wide open path of non-monogamy can take us.

We'll also tackle some common myths and misconception about polyamory and other forms of non-monogamy, and set the foundation for more courses through the year.

This workshop is a space to get messy, real, and honest about what you want. You'll get to ask your questions, meet other folks exploring non-monogamy, hear new perspectives, and come away with a clear sense of what kinds of open relationships are going to work for you, why non-monogamy is what you want, and a sense of where you'd like it to go in the long term.

Join internationally recognised relationship coach Mel Cassidy for this 3 hour workshop where we'll go over the three basic questions everyone needs to be able to answer about their relationship aspirations: what kind of non-monogamy are you seeking , why is it that you want non-monogamy, and where do you want non-monogamy to take you in the long term?

With over two decades as a teacher and coach, Mel draws from both personal and professional experience to demystify the worlds of polyamory and relationship anarchy, to help you identify your personal 'north star' by which you can navigate your way in the world of open relationships.

This workshop will be held online, and will be interactive, featuring breakout discussions and a 15 min break.
