Event description

Description

Why do relationships that begin with such high hopes often lead to ongoing stress and disappointment? Why do we fall in love with this person, but not with that one? How can we deal with the storms of emotion that seem to follow connections of great joy? What does it take to create a relationship that is supportive and appreciative for both partners?

The insights and techniques that are shared in this workshop are drawn from many sources, including the facilitators' polyamorous paths, Eastern spirituality, and hard science. They can be applied to all our relationships and interactions with others, sexual or non-sexual, polyamorous or monogamous, casual or intimate. Join us as we discover how we can come to a place of power and choice in how our lives and relationships unfold.

Facilitator Bios:
Michael Rios is an entrepreneur and practical visionary with a creative approach to freedom and empowerment. For the past fifteen years they have been a major organizer of "New Culture"
events (cfnc.us) aimed at creating a culture based on awareness, compassion, and freedom rather than on fear and judgment. In 2011, Michael became the director of Abrams Creek Center (abramscreekcenter.com), a retreat center in the mountains of West Virginia. Their current passion is creating an “intentional village” there and in the nearby town - a place where people live consciously with and near one another, building a life based on social change, personal enterprise and freedom, economic independence, and a web of personal interconnections (cfnc.us/aciv).

Indigo Dawn (They/Them) is an impact-oriented love activist with the vision to create a sustainable society for all its stakeholders. Their scheme to make this happen includes spreading nurturing, platonic touch as a Cuddlist (cuddlist.com/indigodawn) and creating events, workshops, and communities that change lives. As a key organizer and presenter for Center for a New Culture (cfnc.us/), Indigo teaches skills and mind-sets that support sustainable relationships and group dynamics-- including self-awareness, open communication, authentic connection, and healthy boundaries. Their most recent project is co-creating intentional community at Chrysalis Community in Arlington, VA; at Allegheny Crest in Mt. Storm, WV (cfnc.us/aciv); and within the metro DC region (New Culture DC (DC/MD/VA))
