Amory 83 | Advocating for the NEW Modern Family with Dr. Heath Schechinger

Amory 83 | Advocating for the NEW Modern Family with Dr. Heath Schechinger

As more and more of us share our stories and begin to normalize polyamory, we need people like Heath Schechinger to work systemically to shift policies, laws and societal structures to support the NEW modern family. I was lit up after this conversation with Heath, and share the vision he described at the end of the podcast!

Please take a few minutes to check out some of the advocacy work he is doing, and see if you are called to jump on board any of the initiatives!

Dr. Heath Schechinger is an internationally recognized therapist, researcher, and consultant, known for his groundbreaking work within the realm of family and relationship diversity.

As Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Modern Family Institute, and Founding Co-Chair of the Committee on Consensual Non-monogamy housed in the LGBTQ Division of the American Psychological Association, Dr. Schechinger has dedicated over a decade to studying the dynamics of both monogamous and non-monogamous relationship dynamics.

He is also Co-Founder of the Polyamory Legal Advocacy Coalition and Affiliate Faculty at the renowned Kinsey Institute at Indiana University.

Dr. Schechinger's work serves as a catalyst for both academic discourse and practical support, with his initiatives paving the way for a more nuanced understanding of what constitutes a healthy, fulfilling relationship in contemporary society.

Amory 79 | Exploring the Essence of Kink with Sunny Megatron

Amory 79 | Exploring the Essence of Kink with Sunny Megatron

"Everything you think you know about kink, throw it out the window!" - Sunny Megatron

I am LOVING the conversation I had with Sunny Megatron, host of American Sex podcast, where we dig deep into the essence of kink. There are many overlaps with open relating as it relates to creating mutual agreements, seeking consent, communicating boundaries, intentionally exploring emotional states, and so much more!

Sunny Megatron is an award-winning Clinical Sexologist, BDSM & Certified Sexuality Educator, and media personality. She’s the host & executive producer of the Showtime original series, Sex with Sunny Megatron, co-hosts AASECT Award-winning American Sex Podcast and Open Deeply Podcast, and was 2021's XBIZ Sexpert of the Year. Currently, she’s the Editor-in-Chief of kink-focused Zipper Magazine. Known for her one-of-a-kind, build-your-own-adventure approach to sex, kink & relationships, Sunny coined the BDSM community catch-phrase, Kink is Customizable™. In her sell-out workshops, her unique brand of “edutainment” seamlessly combines her humorous teaching style, interactive exercises, and the latest sexuality research. Sunny’s passion is helping others overcome shame and find their power through play and pleasure. She’s also working on her first book, “Customizable Kink: A Strategic Guide to Adult Play.” Want more?

Amory 78 | Crazy Love - Kyle Moves to Oregon

Amory 78 | Crazy Love - Kyle Moves to Oregon

Kyle and I (Megan) share about the transformation of our relationship as Kyle moves to Oregon. Instead of closing our hearts, we are focusing consciously on building more secure attachment practices and new relationship agreements. For anyone in a long-distance relationship, or currently restructuring a relationship, this episode might provide you some context to see your relationship challenges in a new light.

Special Invitation!!! One of our secure attachment practices is to create together...and you are invited into the process! We will be holding a 6 week group program "Secure Attachment Practices in Polyamory" where we build our skill sets and better relationships! Limited to a small number of participants so message if you are interested. Starts July 19th.

Amory 77 | Creating Safety in Mind & Body (messages with @bustout_dojo)

Amory 77 | Creating Safety in Mind & Body (messages with @bustout_dojo)

This episode of Amory is very different! It's actually an exchange of WhatsApp messaging with a friend who was sharing a major breakthrough in his healing journey. He describes the moment he realized the pattern between his emotions, and his thoughts...not getting overly identified with them, nor denying them. The ability to "be with" both his emotions and thoughts is creating the space for him to see himself as the loving witness. From that place, he is free to act instead of react, and therefore create the life he truly desires.

I am sharing this because his realization is raw and authentic and may support you on your journey of relating (with yourself and others).

After I recorded the beginning and ending of this episode, my friend Dojo created an account so you can reach him on Instagram - @bustout_dojo. If you are called to send him a direct message - please do!

If you are interested in the 6-month group program, please message or DM @amorypodcast

It starts June 12th and runs through mid-November with bi-weekly meetings, bi-weekly one-on-one's, weekly videos/exercises, group support and will catalyze your relating to the next level! There are a few spaces left so message ASAP to learn more!

Self-Love - The Flowing River of Emotions

Self-Love - The Flowing River of Emotions

Do you know what you are feeling? Do you avoid feelings or get flooded by them? How do you relate to the different emotions that arise?

This is a short excerpt from the Self-Love online course which is created to support you to become more aware of your body, heart, mind and spirit. Only when we truly listen to ourselves can we love ourselves, which may require understanding how feelings are information, learning how to translate our emotions, and processing past emotions.

If you enjoyed this short podcast, you may find value in the full Self-Love online course. A gift from me to you...$50 off the course with the code selflove50.

Amory 73 | Polyamorous Identity with Kristian Einstman (Polyam Proud)

Do you consider yourself to have a polyamorous identity? How important is it to you to have a visual representation (flag) of polyamory?

Kristian Einstman and I dig into so many amazing topics - identity, truth, the nature of reality, the limitations (and connection) through language, and of course, that it means for us to be polyamorous in this changing world. I share my 180 degree change from being a big supporter of the work that Polyam Proud is doing to connect our international polyamorous community through a flag!!!!
