Open Source: A Non-Monogamy Support Group is designed to help individuals work through common concerns and conflicts that arise while navigating open relationships. Members will be encouraged to identify and challenge their own beliefs and biases about intimacy and relationships, while gaining insight and perspective from others’ shared and differing experiences.
Unlike Meetups or other polyamory-focused gatherings and events, this 8-week support group is being facilitated by a licensed professional counselorwho will help group members delve deeper into understanding their relational wants and needs, as well as process any emotions that arise.
Each meeting will also focus on a theme related to the practice of consensual and ethical non-monogamy. Regardless of your specific relationship structure—whether it be Open, Swinging, Polyamory (Solo or partnered), or less defined—you are welcome to apply.
It is important when engaging in group therapy to be willing to talk openly about your thoughts and feelings, to honestly report your behaviors, to offer helpful, clear, direct feedback to others, and to listen fully and carefully to other members’ reactions to you. To avoid conflicts of interest and ensure safety, members are expected to attend group sessions alone. This means you are not permitted to attend a group that includes your current partner(s) or any member of your current polycule.
Open Source will run for two cohorts in 2023, one beginning in April and one in September. If you and a partner or metamour are both interested in attending, please consider applying to separate cohorts. Contact Amanda directly at email@example.com with questions or concerns.
How to Apply.
To apply for either cohort, please submit your application via the secure Google Form, which you can acces by CLICKING HERE.
Applications for the April 2023 cohort will be accepted through Sunday, March 12th, 2023.
Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an email from the facilitator, Amanda, to schedule the free Initial Phone Consultation. This phone call will help you and Amanda determine whether Open Source is a good fit for your current needs.
