Conscious Relating 101: An Overview of Relationship Anarchy

Have you ever wondered what it's like to relate to others in a way that is less defined by expectations, obligations, commitments, and rules? Relationship Anarchy (RA) is a practice based in self-awareness and personal responsibility that honors autonomy, authenticity, and adaptability. It can apply to all types of relationships (platonic, family, romantic, sexual, etc.). RA challenges conventional social norms, including the notions of ownership, scarcity, and entitlement in relationships. It is a practice of consciously aligning intentions with others rather than projecting unconscious expectations and assumptions onto one another.

In this workshop, we will explore an overview of RA philosophy by:

- Exploring some definitions together
- Differentiating RA from other relating styles (i.e monogamy, non-monogamy)
- Examining underlying values and beliefs
- Exploring your resonance and sticking points

In later workshops, we’ll dig in more to the:

- Philosophical underpinnings
- Cultural norms and myths
- Empowering aspects of practicing RA
