  • Healing of Love: Sex, Partnership and the Village

    Many are beginning to question the current story of love: the belief that we must find "THE ONE": a partner who will grant our happiness and fulfill all our needs. And yet, with growing divorce rates, betrayal, and stressed partnerships, the old story isn't working for many. Others are experimenting with various models of open relationship and alternative forms - some finding joy but also much heartache.

    New paradigm filmmaker Ian MacKenzie shares his recent journey to Tamera peace village in Portugal, exploring the foundations the new story in love and sexuality. How might we cultivate communities of trust to support the freedom to love without fear? Whatever your relationship form, monogamy, polyamory or beyond, this workshop will explore the role of the community in healthy partnership.
