Love is a powerful force. This force – sometimes way too strong – must be tamed if use is to be made of it. Just as modern societies organize their lives around political systems, people approach and organize love by entering different systems – or relationships – such as monogamy, open relationships, just to name a couple.
Building on the fundamentals of Love & Democracy, this advanced workshop deals with two major types of relationships: the monogamous relationship and the sexually open relationship… or, in other words: parliamentarian and presidential democracies.
Join us for this innovative, creative and specific comparison between democracies and intimate relationships, first invented in a 2009 theater play and presented over 100 times in various discussion groups, academic conferences and coaching workshops since then.
Did you know that…
- monogamy is about having trust in your partner ?
- an open relationship is about having trust in rules ?
- cheating is more common in monogamous relationships ?
- these two types of relationships have differing degrees of stability ?
Here’s what you can expect to learn during this workshop:
- demystify and understand the differences between monogamous and open relationships;
- assess the pros and cons of each system;
- identify which relationship system best fits your personality type and life stage.
You might have always been looking for The One, but ultimately you may understand that you were just looking to fulfill a specific need, for example, someone to make you feel secure and alleviate your financial fears. Or you may have thought that you wanted to be in a long-term relationship, but now realize that you are happier having many short-lived intense moments.
“End of Emotions !?” is a series of six innovative workshops with the multidisciplinary Amour Constitutionnel approach : a place of engagement somewhere between short films, music, literature, exercises and academia. Participants can participate in one, several or all six workshops. All workshops will be held in central Paris, in French, for a length of approximately 1 hour 15 minutes without interruption.
