About this event

Welcome to the third meeting of the 2nd Season of Polyamory Perspectives Porto.

For this iteration, we are proposing a new topic for all of us to think about and share our views during the meeting, which we picked up from reading Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert’s *More Than Two*: *A Practical Guide to ethical polyamory* — **Communication Strategies**.

“*The first rule of polyamory is communicate, communicate, communicate*. But what does that mean, exactly? Communication is trickier than it sounds. It covers a lot more than saying what’s on your mind, and even saying what’s on your mind can be surprisingly tough.

...

When we talk about communication in polyamory, we’re actually talking about a very specific type of communication: speaking the truth about ourselves, our needs and our boundaries with honesty and precision, and listening with grace when our partners speak of themselves, their needs and their boundaries. This kind of communication isn’t really about words. It’s about vulnerability, self-knowledge, integrity, empathy, compassion and a whole lot of other things.”

In this session, we will discuss some of the pitfalls of good communication: fuzzy language, slippery words, dishonesty, and passive communication. Let us expand our communication toolbox and think about active listening, direct communication, nonviolent communication, proactive communication, being curious, asking for what we need, and talking about the reasons.

Whether you’re polyamorous, in an open relationship, or simply curious about exploring ethical non-monogamy, this event provides a safe and welcoming space to connect with like-minded individuals.

Come sip some drinks while chatting and socializing with others who share your respect and ethical non-monogamy values.

The event will be held at Capela Incomum, located on the last floor (up the stairs!).

We look forward to seeing you there and hearing your perspectives on Communication Strategies!

Bem-vindes ao terceiro encontro da 2ª Temporada do Polyamory Perspectives Porto.

Como aquecimento, estamos a propor um novo tema para pensarmos e compartilharmos os nossos pontos de vista durante o meet-up, algo que descobrimos na leitura do livro de Franklin Veaux e Eve Rickert *More Than Two*: *a practical guide to ethical polyamory* — **estratégias de comunicação**

“*The first rule of polyamory is communicate, communicate, communicate*. But what does that mean, exactly? Communication is trickier than it sounds. It covers a lot more than saying what’s on your mind, and even saying what’s on your mind can be surprisingly tough.

...

This kind of communication isn’t really about words. It’s about vulnerability, self-knowledge, integrity, empathy, compassion and a whole lot of other things.”

Nesta sessão, vamos discutir algumas das armadilhas da boa comunicação: linguagem confusa, palavras escorregadias, desonestidade e comunicação passiva. Vamos expandir a nossa caixa de ferramentas de comunicação e pensar na escuta ativa, na comunicação direta, na comunicação não violenta, na comunicação proativa, em ser curioso, em expressar o que precisamos e em falar sobre os motivos.

Quer sejas uma pessoa poliamorosa, estejas num relacionamento aberto ou simplesmente curiosa em explorar a não-monogamia ética, este evento oferece um espaço seguro e acolhedor para te conectares com pessoas que pensam como tu.

Vem tomar uma bebida enquanto conversas e socializas com outras pessoas que compartilham os teus valores de respeito e não-monogamia ética.

O meet-up será na Capela Incomum, estaremos no último andar (subindo as escadas!). Esperamos ver-te por lá e ouvir
