ReThink is a new event series from the New Narrative focused on facilitated discussions about topics that don’t often get openly addressed; everything from sex, money, religion, to community-building, personal identity, and self-worth. The goal is to create an affirming space for discussion so all of us can operate with more knowledge, language, and solidarity as we tackle the difficult aspects of our lives.

This month we’re going to talk about Non-Monogamy, Polyamory, and Unconventional Relationships.

Polyamory and different forms of consensual non-monogamy are becoming increasingly popular in our world. What are some of the different aspects of non-monogamy? In what ways could it be a beneficial way to think about relationships? What are the challenges to these types of relationships and why are they not for everyone? What conversations would you need to have with a partner before considering non-monogamy or an open relationship? What conversations would a person need to have with themselves?

ReThink follows a model similar to a “World Cafe.” Each event will feature a set of discussion tables with designated facilitators. The facilitators will guide the table through different discussion questions pertaining to the main topic. Attendees will split up and rotate around, spending approximately 20 minutes at each table, before rotating to the next one.

The hope is that by moving around and sharing ideas, a richer level of conversation and new connections will emerge. We’ll leave time at the end of the session to share thoughts, insights and potential next steps with the larger group too.

The event is open to the public but advance
