Unconventional Relationships

The 5-minute audio clip is about the topics of relationships, marriage and sexuality as these relate to community. We explored our interests in unconventional relationship configurations, why this is important within a new culture community setting, and the potential to create spaces where we can be ourselves and find true belonging.

We had a limited time to begin exploring the topic, but I expect it to be a conversation we return to over time. I find that somehow the exploration of village seems to often eventually lead here. I could give a lot of reasons about why I think that is, but am curious to discover what our collective container reveals about this subject.

There are two communities that are mentioned in this clip - Tamera in Portugal and Damanhur in Italy.
