The Gift of Presence

As the winter holidays approach many find the frenzy of shopping and the endless quandaries about gift giving. This can get particularly complicated and stressful in polycules and their extended families.

I was thinking this morning about the powerful experience of presence. I don’t think I can replace all presents with presence! But maybe a bit more presence, true being with another is the most authentic gift I can give.How do the holidays effect your capacity to be present? Let’s discuss.

As in past years, there will be time for socializing and sharing a buffet for those who would like to partake in our traditional holiday season potluck.

The session is scheduled from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, at Tribe Healing Arts1819-21 W. Belmont, Chicago (2 blocks west of the Lincoln & Ashland intersection). Street parking is available in the area.

Fee: Recognizing our time and the cost of use of the space, a fee of $10 per person is requested. We know that this may be difficult for some. We encourage each of you to contribute what feels fair. Please do not let money be an obstacle to your participation. Feel free to speak with us if you have questions or concerns.

Want to Pay Online? We have a new online payment option available for those who prefer it over cash at the time of the group. Please click here to pay online.

Please RSVP at the Chicago Polyamory Meetup site. We look forward to sharing ourselves, our issues, concerns, joys, successes etc. together in a meaningful way. Hope that you will join us.
