Cheers Sexy People!
Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! My team and I are sending good energy and vibes of hope and love to our amazing community as the world continues to slowly open up cautiously post-pandemic. I hope you are doing your best to keep safe and healthy. Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you may be separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am really excited to share my latest podcast interview that I released with Shai Fishman and Lea Aella, who are the founders of Leveled Up Love and the organizers behind the recent lush experience, Open Love Experience. As one of the expert presenters at the event, I spent the weekend with them at this Platinum Level Retreat for couples curious about consensual non-monogamy, inclusive of transformative relationship coaching, private festival performances, and an unforgettable erotic evening in Fort Pierce, Florida. While I have been speaking with both Shai and Lea more recently as we prepared for this exciting retreat (and de-briefed afterward), it was a pleasure to connect with them together earlier this year to get to know them better and learn more about their journey. Plus, it was a delight to have finally met them in person at RelateFest in March 2022! Mark your calendars if you’d like to attend the next RelateFest scheduled for February 2023! Lea and Shai! It has been lovely to continue to deepen our friendship and collaboration over recent months and years! Thank you sincerely for all of the work that you do for our collective community!
Here is their bio:
Shai Fishman and Lea Aella are the founders of Leveled Up Love, a thriving global Facebook community of over 7,700 open relators around the world seeking to create secure, fulfilling, and sustainable non-monogamous relationships. They are creators of the Secure Poly Collective™, a heart-centered support program for conscious open relating with exclusive live events each month, coaching with the best in the industry, and an array of tools and resources. Through their coaching and group program work, Shai & Lea teach their philosophy of open relating called Eco-Amory™, an approach to free love that mindfully cares about the entire relationship environment and sets the stage for fulfilling, healing, and sustainably happy polyamorous relationships. They have appeared and spoken on “The Doctors”, “Leading Edge Love Radio”, Evolve Fest, Relate Fest, Enrich, One World Tantra Festival, and Sol Y Luna Festival.
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- Their individual lightbulb moments regarding their desire and decision to pursue polyamory.
- What happened when Shai and his wife first opened up their marriage.
- The challenges that each have faced as a result of being in a polyamorous relationship.
- Why Lea believes that compassion (as opposed to compersion) is key.
- What the most rewarding aspects of their open relationship have been.
- What offerings and events are coming up through their Leveled Up Love community.
- Tune in to listen to this fantastic podcast episode!
