Polyamory Playbook: Dissolving the Gap between Theory & Practice in Open Relationship(s)
In theory, ethical non-monogamy makes perfect sense. Everyone understands that one person cannot meet all of our intimate needs, so if we just start dating multiple people with the full knowledge and consent of everyone involved, there shouldn’t be any problems, right? I mean, how hard could it be?
Right. So why do so many people crash and burn? Even if you read every blog on the internet and book on the topic, people still seem to fall into a minefield of triggers, an endless loop of processing, or otherwise, explode into flames. Even the most seasoned poly people will tell you it’s hard and takes a ton of work. Why?
Because of the huge gap between theory and practice.
We have lofty ideals of what free love should look like that violently clash with our monogamous conditioning and subconscious beliefs. This 12-week choose-your-own- adventure workbook is designed to reach beneath our emotional triggers to touch into our heart’s deepest desires so that our relationship choices are congruent with who we really are. If we want to live in ecstatic connection with everyone we love, we must be willing to honor the capacity of our nervous system while we re-program our limiting beliefs, and do the work to upgrade our body-mind complex in every dimension.
In this book you’ll learn:
* Why poly theory fails in real-life situations
* Exercises to disarm unconscious triggers
* Best practices to avoid breakdown & heartbreak
* Journaling prompts to make you a better lover
* Thought-provoking quizzes & conversation starters
* Expert guidance to uncomplicate your journey
We may not ever attain all the answers to the deep mystery of Love, but this workbook can help us ask better questions! This invaluable journey can be done solo, with a partner, with a group, or with a coach. If you are a workshop facilitator this is a must-have resource!
