Summer is waning and the Loving More Staff are busy gearing up for fabulous fall conferences. The 24th annual Loving More Retreat is September 10-12, 2010 and a first for us, Poly Living Seattle is October 22-24, 2010.
Each event offers it’s own unique flavor for the polyamorous or the poly curious. The Loving More Retreat has a mixture of workshops and playshops designed to help people open up and make connections. Many of the workshops offer the experience of deepening your heart connection and dealing with the emotional baggage many people need to clear to have successful romantic relationships.
Poly Living Seattle offers a wide variety of workshops for the person exploring for the first time, the professional wanting to learn more to serve their clients and the experienced poly person wanting to hang out with others of like mind. This is the first time this conference will be offered in the Emerald city and is attracting people from across the country to attend and speak.

Loving More is currently working toward a goal to raise $30,000 in 2010 and we are now at $12,000 so far this year. Donations big and small help our unique organization in bringing opportunities for education on issues and awareness of polyamory. The money raised funds everything from speaking opportunities at colleges, universities and conferences to maintaining free literature and the website for information. None of this would be possible without the generous support of the polyamorous community.
We are also seeking grant funding. Grants for an organization supporting alternative relationships is challenging to come by. We are learning that private donations and grants may be our best source to keep programs moving forward and expanding.
If you feel so inspired we could use your help. We need volunteers for grant research, fund raising, coordinating volunteer efforts, marketing, media outreach and admin help. Contact Robyn Trask, [email protected] or call 970-667-5683 to help or find out more information.
