Polyamory

 

Sacred Space Institute - The Sacred Space Institute is a group of intimate peers with the common commitment of supporting each others spiritual evolution as well as planetary transformation. Toward this end, we freely share resources, including information, technical skills and equipment, love, wisdom, nurturing, erotic energy, and financial opportunities. We come to this work from many different spiritual paths and a wide variety of life experiences and professional training. Our backgrounds include clinical psychology, chi kung, yoga, holistic health, tantra, massage, film making, journalism, business, nutrition, and dance. Our intention is to create a context in which the arts of whole systems healing and sacred sexuality can be applied, taught and developed, given professional legitimacy, and disseminated to a wide international public.

Whole systems healing is a multilevel process which encompasses mind, body, feelings, sex, and spirit. It includes an individuals relationships with the different parts of oneself, with each other, and with all of creation. A whole systems approach recognizes that treating one isolated symptom or problem is only partially effective at best and can actually be harmful. Instead, we consider the complete individual along with his or her family, community, and society. We view health as the natural outcome of fully allowing and integrating every aspect of self and opening to an experience of unity with others and with the Divine. Since sexuality is an area where many people experience both internal and interpersonal conflicts, and it is often left out of holistic health care, we focus our attention here.

Looking For Poly Friendly Professionals (Therapists/Counselors)

What Psychology Professionals Should Know About Polyamory – The Lifestyles and Mental Health Concerns of Polyamorous Individuals - Based on a paper presented at the 8th Annual Diversity Conference - March 12th, 1999 - Albany, New York

Relationship LLC – Marriage perfected - Now There Is A New Way To Tie The Knot. It is our position that limited liability companies, "LLCs", may prove to be the new marriage model. Marriage is presently available only to one man and one woman. LLCs are available to everyone, couples (of any sexual mix) who wish to pursue life together, a single parent family and groups of friends. Marriage is based on family law, limited liability companies are based on partnership law and the legal arrangement its "members" agree to.

Love More - We provide information and inspiration for people who are interested in evolving sustainable relationships and new relationship options. It is our belief that monogamy as a relationship style can be a valid choice but there are also other time tested, legitimate options for intimacy, sexuality, and family life that are not allowed in the country by law and by custom.

  • We affirm that loving more than one can be a natural expression of health, exuberance, joy, and intimacy.
  • This is a lovestyle we call responsible non-monogamy, or polyamory, and it refers to all forms of multi-partner relating between adults which are ethical and consensual.
  • We value diversity as the basis for a healthy ecology of love, and respect the rights of all people to choose the lovestyles which are appropriate for them.
  • We see the shift from enforced monogamy and nuclear families to polyamory and intentional families, tribes or communities in the context of a larger shift toward a more balanced, peaceful and sustainable way of life. We call it simply - Loving More.

Society For Human Sexuality - Polyamory is a relationship style (and style of living) involving the creation of "intimate networks" of friends, partners, and lovers. It is also referred to as "responsible non-monogamy." Since this is done without hiding one's relationships from anyone else in one's life, it requires a high level of integrity, honesty, and communication. One book in particular stands out when it comes to multi-partner relationships: The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Catherine A. Liszt. The book Polyamory: The New Love Without Limits by Deborah Anapol also has plenty of value, particularly for long-term fidelitous networks. Additional information may be found in our guide to sexuality resources.

 Abby And Jack - "On the personal side, let me say that being bisexual just means that you recognize within yourself the ability to love or to be physically attracted to members of both genders. It means that you are able to appreciate both genders sexually. Once this part of yourself is recognized, there is often the desire to experience what sexuality is like with both genders. After this is experienced, many bisexual people find that the difference in those sexual experiences create a desire to continue partaking of that diversity. But people are not just their genders. Most people also consider sexuality to be an extension of love. That leads us to people who are polyamorous. Polyfolk find within themselves the capacity to love more than one person at a time. This can often be confusing as our society denies the reality of this possibility: 

ONE NATURAL LAW OF POLYAMORY How you feel about one person has nothing to do with how you feel about another. This is a given. The fact that your husband or wife may love or desire other people does not mean that they are "missing" anything in their relationship with you. And the fact that they may be interested in a person of the same sex, does not mean that he feels any less attracted to you. These are fallacies taught by our society." 

The Polyamory Society - Serving the Polyamorous Community - The Polyamory Society is a nonprofit organization which promotes and supports the interest of individuals of multi-partner relationships and families. Currently the Society provides information and is building membership. This page is a general outline of what we would like to see provided to Polyamorists and their families. The Society welcomes input and participation.

Sev For The Curious – I believe that the world and I have a lot to offer each other. Non-monogamy is a way for me to fill my life with wonderful people, drawing the lines where I feel they belong in my life. It's about communication, about being honest about my feelings, and about spending my time with people who make me happy -- with the full knowledge and consent of all my partners.

Having multiple relationships can sometimes be difficult due to time constraints. In other words, time spent with one lover is time not spent with another. However, the same does not apply to emotion. Love shared in one relationship is a positive experience, which fills me with loving energy, which benefits my other relationships.
