This Friday through Sunday the phenominal conference Dark Odyssey Winter Fire happens in Washington, DC. It's producers describe it as follows:
DARK ODYSSEY : A journey of sexual adventure, where open minded people gather to explore Tantra, Polyamory, Intimate Communications, BDSM, Alternative Lifestyles and more. With nationally known presenters, hands on workshops, intriguing lectures and exciting social events, experience a vacation you are sure to not forget.
DO is indeed a wonderful event with a top notch staff and programs (she says modestly.) For more information about Dark Odyssey, visit the DO website.
I will be presenting a new program on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. entitled The Pain and Pleasure of Poly/Mono Relationships, which I describe as follows:
Probably the greatest challenge in finding what works to resolve conflict in polyamorous relationships is working out the challenge that arises when one partner is polyamorous and the other is monogamous. How do people manage? Is it even possible to find mutual happiness under such circumstances? This workshop will explore the ways in which poly/mono relationships wither for some and thrive for others. Every effort will be made to present this workshop and conduct the discussion sensitively to the experiences of the monogamous partners as well as the polyamorous partners. Poly/mono couples and groups who have a story to tell are especially welcome. A useful handout and ample time for discussion will be included.
If you're attending DO, please come on by and check it out! And keep an eye out for the handout - it will be posted next week under "Downloadable Documents" on practicalpolyamory.com
