Jealousy and Open Relationship: A How-To Guide

Sunday, July 17, 2016 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM

ORU Meeting Room
745 5th St,
Oakland, CA

Every time we talk about Open Relationships, the question of jealousy is brought up.

"But how do you deal with jealousy?"

"So, if you're open, does that means you don't get jealous anymore?"

Jealousy: A How-To Guide will answer these questions and more.

Spoiler alert: ALL relationships have the potential for jealousy, and being open doesn't require it to go away forever. Both Polygamous and Monogamous people are welcome!

In this workshop, we will walk you through the questions to ask yourself and your partner(s) when jealousy arises, and what to do with the answers you hear. We will discuss the different causes of jealousy, how to disambiguate jealousy and envy, and a variety of self and relationship-care practices that can diffuse jealous feelings. There will be time for discussion, questions, and reflection on your own relationships. You will walk away with tools and techniques to use if jealousy ever becomes an issue in any of your relationships.

Cost: $35 - $40
