This month's newsletter:
Baby it's (still) cold outside. While winter worries wax and wane, buds
bloom and so do our polyamorous hopes and dreams. On the homefront the Lessins
negotiate to purchase more land and expand our community vision in paradise
(Maui, HI). We dream of intentional community, a conscious polyamorous-tantric
tribe of 6-12 residential members with expanded family globally.
While our family fans home flames and feeds family pets, Sasha and I travel to
the World Polyamory Association conferences in the mainland. There we
meet other tribe members and interview potential new ones, conduct workshops,
teach and help others with private counseling. This year we have
conferences on both American coasts and at least one in the middle. To
say we're excited is an undestatement. On top of all the good news, this
year we travel to Europe to explore venues and poly opportunites there.
These times they are a changin' and despite it all, and perhaps because of it
all, it's changin' to something good.
The planet's waking up to love. More people are becoming aware of
relationship choice options and are setting themselves free from self-limiting
and constraining boxes that no longer fit. Truth, honesty, clarity,
communication are the new mantras. The faithful believe, mainly in themselves
and the ability of their mates to hear what they have to say. Consciously,
kindly, they address needs, wants and desires. They negotiate peacefully with
grace and integrity and emerge with new agreements that honor all parties
concerned and truly work.
As the old saying goes, "You don't always get what you want, but sometimes you
get just what you need." In polyamory I've found that the more I grow in
love and become compersive, the wants and needs of my beloveds become my wants
and needs. And, as a result, I often want just what I need.
May you get what you need and want what you get.
