We had the pleasure of attending a new workshop series lead by Shana, an amazingly talented Priestess. She wowed us all with her philosophical awakenings and very boisterous personality. She is full of energy, vibrant, and incredibly kind. I deeply enjoyed her presentation on awakening your authentic self. Shana used a great deal of scientific fact mixed with spiritual experiences to share her points of view and it had almost everyone in the room searching their own values and beliefs.

January 15-17 the ALCC/CCVA was at the Salon de l’amour et de la seduction in the “Kink Corner.” We provided information, education, demonstrations, and educational stage presentations. The Vac-bed’s were unbelievably popular, as well as the violet wand! So many people were volunteering to try out different activities at our different play stations!!! All our communities were represented (Poly, Trans*, Bi/Pansexual, Swingers, and Asexuals)! Thank you to all those who volunteered to help make this such a success and to all who stopped by!

The polyamory group started the year with a large meeting attended by 33 people. We touched on various topics like insecurity, jealousy, and how to bring up the fact that you are polyamorous to someone you just met. Halfway through the meeting, we split up the group in 5 small groups spread throughout the room – and even the hallway. It was way more engaging to share in those smaller groups.
See you at the “Salon de l’Amour et de la Séduction” next week. The polyamory table Read the rest of this entry
Sunday January 11th, after the English polyamory group, Prince hosted the Bisexuals Group where a dozen participants shared their opinions about the “Bi-dar”, classic dating techniques, success and failure stories, explored the subject of a possible correlation between gender-bending and bisexuality, then some nuances between romantic orientation versus sexual orientation and finished with a rich brainstorm on how to increase the visibility of the bisexuals community in Montreal by ways of initiating some movement. Prince took all ideas in note and will make some happen shortly.
