Living a polyamorous life

"You must love in such way, that the person you love feels free"
Thich Nhat Hahn

For Patrick and Nienke it is logical that living a conscious life also includes conscious love. Listening to yourself, your longings and your fears. Not automatically wandering adrift in the stream of what society expects. Why do people think they can only be happy with one person?
The two lovers from the Netherlands are together for more than 20 years. They have two children, teenagers now. Since eight years they both have multiple lovers, next to their own primary relation.
At Ängsbacka festival they will share about the ups and downs of this path and the creative ways they found to live their lives and loves. But most of all they hope to inspire you to think of the way you want to relate, whether it’s monogamous or polyamorous.
Love is such a beautiful thing. Share it.
