Cheers Sexy People!
I am delighted to share my latest podcast interview that I released with coach Sarah Neal, whom I met at last year’s Atlanta Poly Weekend in June of 2018. Last year was my first time presenting at APW, and it was a wonderful experience. Part of the magic of that weekend was all of the fantastic folks that I got to meet, including Sarah Neal. Sarah lives outside of Atlanta, Georgia in a smallish town with her blended family of her spouse, several children, various pets, and lots of love. Sarah, thanks for your patience in setting up the interview, and for all of the wonderful items you shared – especially about being a parent in a modern family and how you “came out” as polyam to your kids. Nice! And so helpful to our listeners.
Here is Sarah Neal’s bio:
As a life, spiritual, and relationship coach, Sarah serves as a guide to her clients, assisting them with unpacking and navigating through the messiness of their lives and embracing what is authentic for them. Sarah received her coaching certifications through World Coach Institute. She has been walking on the Pagan path for almost 30 years and serves as a Priestess to her community. Sarah and her husband have been consensually non-monogamous for over 9 years.
Some topics we discuss in this educational, fun, and fascinating interview:
— Sarah shares about her blended modern family, including several dogs and children, and what a beautiful world she lives in!
— Sarah talks about her lightbulb moment with non-monogamy, and how much TRUST played a big role in that discovery.
— The children in Sarah’s family are very aware of the consensually non-monogamous nature of their family, and are completely on board today. Sarah shares how her youngest did have some challenges with wrapping her head around the concept at first and why that was the case.
— Sarah believes any relationship structure can be advantageous (polyamorous, monogamous or other) as long as that relationship is healthy in its nature.
— “Coming Out” to children as polyamorous or consensually non-monogamous is a topic that we dive deeper into on this show. Fascinating and informative! May it help guide you if this is something that you are struggling with.
— We discuss one of my favorite kink-friendly videos and songs by The Wet Spots called “Kinky Neighbors”. Check it out! So fun and silly (yet accurate for some of us)!
