Open To More: Creating & Sustaining Modern Relationships at Stockroom University April 25th!

Interested in opening up your relationship? Trying to navigate polyamory? Join this quartet of Hosts for an exploration of non-monogamy through modern psychology, practical tools, and their personal experience. This fun and highly interactive workshop will introduce you to a skills-based, self-oriented approach to creating and sustaining happier, healthier, and more resilient open modern relationships.

About the Facilitators:

Ryan Witherspoon is a speaker, writer, educator and clinical psychology Ph.D. student at the California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) at Alliant International University in Los Angeles.

Ann Conners is a bodyworker, a devoted, loyal partner, a damn decent cook, and deeply appreciative of unusual things and unusual people. Her adulthood spent enjoying many various forms of consensual non-monogamy evolved into a primary partnership with herself, allowing for profoundly easy partnerships with others. She holds a bachelors degree from Chapman University.

Stephanie Witherspoon has been polyamorous since she was 18. Over the course of her 12 years of exploration, she has experienced many different relationship styles, including monogamish, open relationship, swinging, 24/7 M/s, hierarchical polyamory, triads, quads, and more. She loves sharing her experiences with others and helping people discover healthy ways to explore. She is a certified RYT 200 yoga teacher, and brings yoga philosophy and mindfulness into her relationship approach.

Marty Lotspeich is fascinated by people. He has spent decades learning what makes us tick. He is a master bodyworker with 15 years of experience as a healer, helping people find comfort in their body and momentum in their life. His greatest pleasure is facilitating people’s personal evolution beyond where they imagined possible. He has been polyamorous for a decade, and spent 7 years active in the San Francisco queer community.
