provide participants perfect places to contact potential lovers. At conferences like the "Create and
Enhance Conscious Polyamorous Relationships" at Harbin Hot Springs
California this July 29-31, you can meet and quickly get to know people with whom
you might fall in love--or at least in attraction enough to know if you want
to consider as possible intimates.
Some polys get
together in these conferences every year with lovers from other parts of the country, meet new lovers,
learn techniques to make multiple intimacies ever-more satisfying.
Poly newbies learn
in the conferences from us old-timers what works well as wewean ourselves
from the monogamous matrix and find freedom and fulfillment with new soulmates and pod participants.
Some folks are
monogamous most of the year but celebrate polyamory at conference time. Others make contacts and make
arrangements to get together beyond the conference, even to create
polyfidelous families or ongoing poly pods.
The seminars at a
conference like the Harbin World Polyamory Conference offer structured relating exercises,
discussions of pair dating, open marriage, triad formation and maintenance, as well as
cuddle parties, group massage and yoga classes where you can talk to, touch
and interview like-minded folk who, like you, seek multiple
lovers and a community that supports the polyamorous lifestyles.
The seminars teach
you how to advertise yourselves on the internet, deal with straight relatives, employers and

transform potentially painful interaction
into ecstatic multiperson loving.
