About the Workshop
Relationships are hard, and for those of us who don’t follow the traditional monogamous model it can be isolating and disconnecting. We struggle with where we can go for support and how to find good resources for problems that are unique to non monogamous people. Where can you turn to have a non judgmental and open discussion around the struggles of your relationships? How do you find the support to improve your communications in intimate relationships?
Anything But Monogamy was formed for this very reason. We offer an 8 weeks course that is focused on the problems and issues facing people who identify as non monogamous. This course will focus on improving communication, intimacy, and sex while navigating the specific challenges for non monogamous people. You will learn how to set healthy boundaries, communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, create relationship agreements and connect better to your partner(s).
