WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:
Wendy-O Matik is the author of Redefining Our Relationships: Guidelines for Responsible Open Relationships, a feminist critique of love and relationships outside the dominant paradigm of monogamy.

The workshop consists of a presentation, group exercises, and a discussion, which is intended to create a non-judgmental support group. Radical love is the freedom to love whom you want, how you want, as many as you want, so long as personal integrity, respect, honesty, and consent are at the core of all relationships. It primarily focuses on love and intimacy, not sex and sexual conquest.

As an educator and spokesperson for the polyamory community, Wendy has become a revolutionary activist of the heart who pushes the boundaries on firmly rooted notions in mainstream society on relationships, love, gender, sexual equality, and sexual politics.

She has taught over 100 "Radical Love & Relationship" classes internationally, excavating important social trends and reshaping the future of alternative relationship models for the 21st century.
