1) REMINDER: Poly Pool Party is *today* SAT 5/28!
... at my home in San Leandro. If you're interested, you can get
details by signing on to our Google Group (look at some of the recent discussions):
Or go read the FAQ directly (but you'll miss some "news" this way) at
We love to have new folks attend, but our space is limited, so we do require RSVPs. (We'd also like you to read the FAQ, please! direx are linked to in the FAQ...)

FYI: The Google Group is a very occasional and relatively low-traffic list for announcing our Poly Pool Parties (PPPs) and other events that we host here at our home and/or are involved in putting on. In general these events are local to the SF Bay Area, but sometimes we announce things that we're doing elsewhere in the country.

WELCOMING OF ALL: Please note that our parties are welcoming to people of all sizes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, backgrounds, spiritual beliefs, political thoughts, etc. Guests are expected to behave in a manner that is courteous, respectful, and accepting of this diversity. (It's perfectly ok to have personal preferences, of course, as long as those preferences don't interfere with your ability to behave courteously towards others at the party.) If you have any questions about this policy, or about any other issues pertaining to our party, please feel free to contact us privately.

2) Poly House Party Weekend: Media Night! In San Leandro, starting at 7:30pm on Friday 6/3. Potluck snacks and drinks only (eat dinner first!). All-ages (there will be at least one awesome kid present). Donations welcomed, but optional. Questions? contact dawnd.

Come join us for a showing of the 2006 Tyra Banks episode on polyamory! Q&A session afterwards, as well as (if folks are interested) discussion of activist issues including the Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Associatioon and their work with the Canadian "Bountiful" Polygamy case, and its implications for the poly community worldwide.

The Tyra Banks Episode on Polyamory first aired 10/10/2006. Large polyamorous guest list includes members of shared household Erosong, including Koe Sozuteki, Angi S., Gary J., and many others; Dawn Davidson & Akien MacIain of Mandala Enterprises Relationship Coaching (and hosts of long-running Poly Pool Party), Kaye P.; David Trask (now IT staff for Loving More Non-profit); guest expert: Therapist Nan White.

3) East Bay Poly Discussion Group -- Tues 6/14

-->Would you like to host?

-->Do you have a request for discussion topics this time?

East Bay Poly Potluck and House Weirdness (Dawn &/or Akien) co-sponsor a poly relationship discussion group. This month it's on Tuesday June 14 at a location TBA. Doors open at 6:45, discussion begins at 7:15. Please arrive on time. We will have POTLUCK SNACKS and drinks only--this is not a full-on potluck dinner, so we recommend eating beforehand.

What's going on with you in your poly life? We can all learn from each other. This is a place to talk about it, both from the head and the heart. It's usually more of a moderated discussion than a lecture, though we have discussion topics to help keep things focused. Occasionally, we may have guest speakers or activities.

Like our East Bay Poly Potlucks, we ask that you RSVP in advance, including the names of all guests. It's held in a private home, and that way we know who's coming; it's a safety and no-surprises thing.

We have setup a new method to RSVP for this event. We will have a Google Spreadsheet available for you to register your name. If you have difficulty updating the spreadsheet (Internet Explorer may fail), send an email to: admin (at) ebpp (dot) org, and we'll add your name to the list.

East Bay Poly Potluck also has a Yahoo group for discussion and announcements of interest to the East Bay poly community. If you're interested in joining, drop us an email to admin (at) ebpp (dot) org with a little about yourself.

I affirm that all is proceeding as it should, unfolding right now in the perfect way. I send love and support to those who need it in this very moment. I wish for those who need to speak, to be able to speak their truth fully and completely, without undue fear. I pray that those who are listening, be able to hear all, and take appropriate and compassionate action. I send my love and gratitude out into the world, and I affirm that all is well, and will be well, where Love prevails. So mote it be.
