PREVIEW

One of Our Dinner Speakers: SERENA ANDERLINI-D'ONOFRIO previews her talk

The Gaia Hypothesis is the most important scientific hypothesis of our time. It's the foundation for the paradigm shift toward the new system of knowledge that enables humanity to make peace with Gaia, the planet.

If this hypothesis is true, the entire web of life, including ourselves, is a live body made of symbiotic, interconnected elements. We HUMANS ARE ALL ALREADY ALWAYS RELATED. What is a healthy way to do relationships in this context?

CONNECT TO ALREADY EXISTING RELATEDNESS, LET ITS POTENTIAL BECOME ACTUALIZED IN THE MOST AUTHENTIC FORM--POLYAMORY. Gaia science indicates polyamory as a path to love, health, and relatedness.  Polyamory sparks the paradigm shift that all nature- and peace-loving people want to create.

      ABOUT OUR CONFERENCES


CONSCIOUS RELATING CONFERENCES 
CREATE PLANETARY PEACE


      Sex and relationship wounds cripple human society. Riane Eisler, in Sacred Pleasure, cites studies that show that the battle of sexes, striking children, as well as lack of easy sexual release and intimate connections generate violent crime and war. But sexual and relationship healing as well as meditation create the greatest personal, family and societal peace.

We at The World Polyamory Association (WPA) facilitate global healing.  We contribute to healing the world when we help individuals feel good about themselves and honor their gender, relationship choices, sexual preferences and sexual orientation.

Polyamory means loving more than one person in an intimate relationship without deceit. We're all polyamorous, meaning we love more than one.  Most of us have intimate relationships in our lives; we love our families and friends as well as our lovers. Intimates help us see and love ourselves, share love and be loved.  The media confounds polyamory–multiple loving with poly-sex–sexual intercourse with contemporary multiple partners. While some of us are poly-coital and some not, we all need to be polyamorous for the intimacy that sustains us and the world.  WPA supports love, amory and your search for love through your freedom to choose the relationships that work for you now, at this stage of your life.

The World Polyamory Association conferences strive to shift the planet into a more loving space, to create a civilized civilization free of personal, inter-personal and global strife. We play, enjoy song, dance and networking and also heal at our conferences with the help of our team of teachers from the consciousness and free choice movement who present workshops, panel discussions, seminars, dance, song, movement, massage experiences. We feature workshops that simultaneously educate, let you play and create networking opportunities for you.

Come to one or more of the World Polyamory Association’s transformational conferences and find what you seek in info, relationships and fun. 

We who gather at WPA conferences embrace relationship choice and more love.  We play ecstatically and, where needed, heal ourselves and each other. As we heal ourselves, we heal our relationships, communities, countries and world.  Workshops at our conferences focus on communication and spiritual growth as well as personal healing.  When we heal individually and in community, temporary or permanent, we catalyze the planet toward unity consciousness.

The energy we create together at our conferences affects the morphogenic field.  Groups who come together with a unified purpose change those around them when they create a field that affects the planetary field. Focused intention on love and healing actually change people and even things on a molecular level.

Join us as a planet shifter, either as a participant or one of our team of professionals.  All are welcome.


Call for Presenters

At WPA conferences, lead a discussion, teaching exercises, communication practice, tantra experintial or poly musical or movement experience to enlighten, entertain and provide experience for polys and poly-friendlies.  Sign up now so we can build the most informative, exhilarating and life-enhancing conference ever. 

We want you as a presenter. Teach us the communication and intimacy techniques that help you get what you want in the polyamorous lifestyle.  Share your variety of tantra adapted to multiple lovers.  Lead us in dance and playful movement so we can have fun together and get to know each other.  Provide guided opportunities for potential lovers to get to know each other and connect. 

You'll love Harbin.  Harbin Hot Springs, CA near Middleton (two hours from both San Francisco), nestles on 1200 acres of beautiful canyon land. It offers natural healing waters (hot, warm and cold pools), miles of hiking trails. The Poly Conference's area is totally private within Harbin; in our area, we can be openly affectionate and even sexual. Harbin's a clothes-optional facility. 

We hope you can offer interactive workshops on pod-formation, pagan polyamory, triad tips, bonding, romantic love, multiple-partner sexuality and choreographing the dance of poly loving.  Musicians with poly songs, movement facilitators, encounter focalizers, we invite you to co-create the best poly conference ever. We'll have as panel discussions, jealousy management experiments, chances to network, a fun party and lots of opportunities to experience living compersion–empathy for others' love-joy. Participants mostly move from experience to experience together, in plenary sessions orchestrated to build community.
