The World Polyamory Association's Northern California Conference, Perfecting the Polyamory Paradigm, will be at Harbin Hot Springs, CA (June 17-19, 2005) in Middleton, located about two hours from both San Francisco and Sacramento.  Harbin's located on 1200 acres of beautiful canyon land. It offers natural healing waters (hot, warm and cold pools), miles of hiking trails, and a variety of workshops, classes and events every week.  Harbin is a clothes-optional facility.

     The Harbin poly conference includes interactive workshops on pair bonding, romantic love, multiple-partner sexuality and choreographing the dance of poly loving. There will be panel discussions, jealousy management experiments, opportunities for networking, a fun party and a many opportunities to experience living compersion–empathy for others' love-joy.  Participants will move from experience to experience together, in plenary sessions orchestrated to build community.

Presenters include Kelly Bryson, Shama Malin, Donald Michael Kraig, Dave Doleshal, Sasha and Janet Kira Lessin, Harold Kornylak, Amber Seitz, Cougar Brenneman, Tana Gallante, Scott Catamas, Master Rex, Dawn Davidson, Akien MacLain, Scott Longewell, Scott Catamas, Terry & Paul Brussel-Gibbons & Marcus Brussel-Jenkins, Ed Jor-El Elkin, Cathy & Barry Smiler and more. If you'd like to present too, email us; we're open to more. We'd especially like a presentation on the interface between paganism and polyamory.
 

The theme of this conference is Perfecting the Polyamory Paradigm.  Here we gather to celebrate diversity, creativity, freedom of expression and relationship choice.  We honor each person's right to chose love, follow their hearts and be who they truly are and not try to be what society dictates.  

Polyamorous folks are quite diverse in how we express our love.  We have a wide variety of relationship expressions: polyfidelity, polyandry, polygamy, open marriage, open marriage, vee relationships, group marriage, extended family, tribes, triads, foursomes, moresomes, intimate networks, community, poly-tantra, poly-swing, poly-pagan and on and on.   

All are honored as we gather as one to celebrate the individual and their need to group as they chose.

We explore our choices at the 2005 Northwest Regional Polyamory Conference, Celebrate Relationship Choice. Join us in Harbin Hot Springs on June 17-19, 2005 as we create new paradigms for relationship choice to re-shape and heal the world.

We continue at the Art of Loving Conference, September 30, October 1 & 2, 2005 in Chicago as we add additional forms of loving, relationships, spirituality, expansion and connection by diversifying our types of presentations and broadening our horizons to include more love.


World-Class Presenters share profound hands-on secrets that empower you for success in love, life, work and play.  You'll enjoy progressive, provocative, cutting-edge mind, body, spirit presentations and workshops that are fun, intimate, exciting, educational, healing and entertaining.  You'll network with like-minded people, enjoy moving and comical entertainment, develop close friendships, find new loves, dance and celebrate till dawn and create fond memories you'll never forget. 

This conference is dedicated to people like you, a network of individuals with diverse talents and interests whose coming together with us, the WTA, WPA, World Peace Association, School of Tantra along with the Chicago Commmunity of cultural creatives, and sharing our life force, ideas, energy and love helps make the world a better place.
