Open Relationship Coaching
I will listen to your situation, questions, concerns or curiosity, ask a lot of questions to gather more information about your individual perspective and then share my knowledge, which is based on 20 years of actual experience living in open relationships, as well as from hosting hundreds of Meetup discussion groups, and within the Burning Man community.
I work with individuals, couples & small groups.
Training & Qualifications
I have been the organizer of two large "Open Relationship" discussion meetup groups for over 15 years.
I also host a theme camp in the Burning Man Community called "The Poly Haven" where I gift safe space to discuss relationship issues.
Availability & Preferences
Afternoons or evenings are best. I can do this service over the phone but prefer to sit with clients, over coffee or tea, at my home, and talk face to face.
About Alan Silverman
Hello, I am a stable, unconventional, competent, drama free man who has taken life's winding & self guided path, finding meaning and happiness along the way. I am self made, self sufficient, se...lf employed, well traveled, non-bureaucratized and a lot of fun. Over the course of my life, I have been a renovation artist, a college teacher, a real estate developer, a yoga studio owner, a community builder and a landlord. I own a ridiculously huge assortment of tools from virtually every construction trade, and know how to use them all, well. I socializing in mostly "alternative" communities, practice ethical non-monogamy, identify as a Polyamorist and have explored various types of "open" relationships, for over 20 years. Over that time, I have come to understand that there are many forms of "open" and many forms of closed. I believe what a relationship looks like should be decided, ethically & honestly, by the people in the relationship and nobody else. I am not into televised sports, chain restaurants, clothing labels or most other mainstream culture. Rather, I am constantly learning & a huge documentary watcher. Over the last ten years I have watched thousands of documentaries & foreign films. Frequently watched subjects include; The environment & the effects of mankind on the earth, Economics, Peak oil, 20th Century history, Sociology, Government, Social Liberties, Etc. I also enjoy Independent films & cerebral television with good production value (ie, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, American Horror Story, Weeds, Game of Thrones, Firefly) NPR & PBS My hobbies, interests & talents are diverse. Pets, Photography, Relationships, Sensuality, Massage, Art, Home Renovations, Small Business, Festivals, Dancing, Music, Fire Spinning & Flow Arts, the Environment, History, Sociology, Humanity, Permaculture & occasional Kink. My diet is mostly home cooked foods & rarely comes out of a box. I try to avoid high fructose like the plague that it is, preferring to eat healthy, real, home cooked food over "food product." I am communicative, nurturing, honest and loyal to my friends. I do not tolerate, people who lie, steal or who are otherwise narcissistic, and am respectful of others, understand boundaries, both following and setting them. Integrity, communication, honesty & mutual consent are guiding principals. Currently, I live with three housemates in one of the 4 adjoining houses I own, leaving time to do the things I am really passionate about, including activism, teaching, mentoring, learning, raising urban free-range hens and participating in the local Burning Man community. show moreOpen to other proposals
