Topic: Breaking Free of a Mono-normative Narrative
Is it possible? Is it necessary? As much as we are taking both internal and external territory with regard to shifting a mono- normative narrative, still throwing off the shackles of early, persistent, conditioned thinking is difficult to do. Examples of normative thinking consist of: an idea that it is best to keep things the same; thinking that it is wrong, inherently immoral to live outside of prescribed heteronormative relationships; cultures, schools, government, churches and other religious organizations that hold on to the values of mono-normativity etc. Those who identify as polyamorous may be limited in some ways in our relationships, in our worlds due to residual internal admonitions against polyamory.
Can we truly be free of mono-normative thinking? Might there be anything useful about mono-normative thinking?
Let’s reflect and discuss together.
MORE ABOUT THIS SUPPORT GROUP
We invite you to a Poly Support Group facilitated by poly & kink aware elders, Rami Henrich and Cindy Trawinski. This group is a community building effort formed in response to interest from the poly community. Support groups provide community interaction, dialogue and interpersonal support. They are not meant to replace individual therapy, counseling or medical advice.
The session is scheduled from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Please RSVP here, at the Chicago Polyamory Meetup site. If you cannot attend, please change your RSVP to NO, so others on the wait list can attend. We look forward to sharing ourselves, our issues, concerns, joys, successes etc… together in a meaningful way. Hope that you will join us.
