Relationship Anarchy Applied: Play Partnerships- Digital
December 5, 6pm Pacific (9pm Eastern)
Presented for Wicked Grounds.
Lots of monogamous or monogamish people in the kink community allow for play with folks who aren't their partner and then run into emotional turmoil as a result.
Applying the theory of relationship anarchy and considering these play partnerships as relationships connected by the Greek "ludus" playful love, we can give people tools to work through conflicts, negativity, & concerns they may have as they and their partners explore play with others. This class will engage in activities as a group and in handouts for folks to take home to reframe negative thinking about moments in partners' play with others and focus on joy points rather than pain points in these relationships, as well as contain some lecture on polyamorous theory.
Anarchy! In Your Relationships
A Workshop with Ro Moed
February 4, 2024 - 2PM Eastern (11AM Pacific, 7PM UK)
Relationship Anarchy has gained in public awareness in recent years - but not without the generation of myths and misunderstandings about this philosophy of engaging in relationships.
Join us for a 90-minute workshop wherein we will:
Bust some of those myths
Define and give the history of relationship anarchy, including contextualizing it with political anarchist movements
Briefly look at the RA Manifesto
Discuss the practicalities of relating from the basis of this philosophical framework, using our own experiences as well as those of others who have given us permission to share their stories during this workshop
Consider whether Relationship Anarchy is a kind of polyamory, or even rightly a kind of non-monogamy, and how we contextualize that question
Look at the positives to an RA approach to relating

The Ready for Polyamory Podcast and Classes
It can be challenging to find clear information about non-monogamy in formats we internalize well. The Ready for Polyamory Podcast is available on all major podcast services and includes overviews of big current topics in non-monogamy as well as important basics. The guests who come join me on there are a wonderful cross section of non-monogamous life, education, and creativity.
Some of my most popular classes are being made available as downloadables on my ko-fi shop. If you can't make the live classes, or the fact that many of the organizations I partner with don't allow for recording means you don't have time to process information fully, making a purchase of a recording might be for you. If something isn't available yet, send me an email - I'll let you know if it's one of the ones in preparation, or when I'm teaching it next.
