I am thrilled to be speaking to the Asheville Poly Network tonight at 6pm. Tickets are $15 and available at the door, and there are still spaces available. Hope to see you tonight!

The APN meets at 68 Kentucky Dr, Asheville, NC 28806

Important parking information below:

Look for the large building in the back straight up the driveway (called the “Awarehouse”).  We’re supposed to park on the street along the fence, to the right of the driveway if you’re looking at the driveway.  There will be a sign in front saying something about the poly meetup.

In my most recent blog on Psychology Today I look at the protective features that may make some poly families less prone to abuse. This blog is the first in a two-part series,  and the second will discuss factors that can increase the likelihood of abuse in a poly family.

This will be my first time at Endless Poly Summer, and I am thrilled to be presenting at the lovely Abrams Creek Retreat Center in the West Virginia Countryside. Not only do I get to lounge in their creek and do some forest bathing, I get to learn from amazing people like authors Patricia Johnson and Mark Michaels, Tantra practitioner and osteopath Harold Kornylak, and resident grassroots poly big wigs Sarah Taub and Michael Rios. I will be presenting “Untangling LGBTQIAKOP,” “Polyamorous Parenting,” and “What Kids REALLY Think of their Poly Families.”
