Boundary Expression and Enforcement (a 101 Class from a Former Doormat) - Digital Class with Pragmatically Kinking
November 8, 2022, 8 pm Eastern Time
Communication of needs and boundaries is the foundation of self-care in all relationships, but especially polyamorous relationships, where additional moving parts may necessitate additional communication around situational and emotional changes. This class is a roundup of strategies that I've been offered over the years by therapists, partners, and my own imagination, to help attendees build their toolbox for this type of interaction. PK runs one class a month on a donation system, splitting between a charitable cause and the presenter, this is that class for the month.

Polyamory and Parenting - Digital class with Pragmatically Kinking
December 10, 2022, 3pm Eastern Time
Many polyamorous people have to address the strawman reaction of “But what about the children?” When they come out as polyamorous - and still more have concerns about how their relationships will intersect with them or their partners having children. This class touches on some of the biggest “kid issues” polyamorous folks will face.

Polyamory Peer Support and Coaching
Do you need an affirmation boost over a rough patch in your polyamorous journey? Relationship advice from someone not emotionally invested in any party? Relationship advice from someone where you don't need to explain what a metamour is to let them know the situation, or who is already familiar with non-monogamy, kink, or queer relationships when your friends may not be? A judgement-free ear to hear your situation as you process it out loud? Some more tailored resource recommendations than a general list can provide?
This is some of what my confidential 1-on-1 peer support services are. I offer short time frame options if you simply need to get something off your chest in a judgement-free space or if you want to see if you like our chemistry before committing to an hour long appointment; and I include the option to talk to me as a dyad or section of a polycule if you're sharing a struggle and think a neutral third party will help. First appointments can be made and booking instructions found here.
