DISCOUNT FOR JEALOUSY MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE EXPIRES IN 4 DAYS
This is the latest update on the Jealousy Management Conference -
happening, October 14-16, 2005, in Berkeley, California.
We have a FABULOUS group of Polyamorous Singers and Musicians
performing on Saturday Night - "TES AND THE GOD SQUAD." (Those
registered for the conference can attend the performance for no
additional cost. Those wishing to attend ONLY the performance may do
so for $15)
The line up of presenters and schedule has also changed slighly. If
you wish to obtain info about the schedule of events as it currently
stands, click on the web link given below.
Several points to bear in mind:
1. The current discount rate of $139 is still in effect until Oct 6th
The price officially goes up OCT 7th to $199. We have some
limited space for work exchange people, - ie those willing to help
promote the event, help with registration, help with videoing, help
with clean up etc. There are also a variety of discounts such as for
students, veterans, members of Saturnia Regna, members of the World
Polyamory Association, people who attended the previous Jealousy
Management Conference, members of Love+Politics, members of
Weirdness.org etc. We are trying to be as accomodating as possible to
anyone who is sincerely interested in attending.
2. No meals or lodging is included in the price. However, it is
being held in a suburban setting, with numerous affordable stores,
hotels, motels, cafes and restaurants nearby.
3. This is a small, local event. It tends attract mostly people
from Berkeley, the San Francisco Bay area, Marin County and residing
elsewhere in Northern Calif. However, we already have people coming
from as west as Hawaii, as far north as Seattle, as far south as
Mexico, as well as from New England, Virginia, Florida and other
parts of the east coast. All are welcome.
4. Although this is technically a Jealousy Management Conference, not
officially a Polyamory Conference, the last time we did this,
effectively 100% of the people who attended were polyamorous people.
Because of the nature of the event, - specifically focused on
emotional issues and psychological matters, it tends to attract a
much higher proportion of sincere poly people - as opposed to those
who are merely "curious" about polyamory. Something about the
prospect of being invited to face delicate emotions like jealousy,
insecurity, fear of abandonment, emotional pain, etc. - while it
seems to strongly attract those who are genuinely trying to live a
polyamorous lifestyle, it seems to discourage most cruisers, clueless
hornies and novelty seekers.
