Amory

By Megan Bhatia
Megan, Kyle and Marty started this journey over two years ago, discussing their learning curve around practicing non-monogamy. Since then, they've realized that regardless of relationship structure, what they are really learning is about how to create healthy relationships with themselves and others. They speak with radical honesty, compersion, love, support, and create safe spaces for each other to emote in the entire spectrum of emotions. Join them on this journey of healing & love through relating. Thanks for listening & sharing! (Online courses available at www.amorypodcast.com)

Regardless of relationship structure, we have all experienced jealousy at one point or another in our lives.

Amory 41 | "A Color Named Love" - Book Launch with M. Ellery!
As a parent, I am CRAVING more books that normalize polyamory through vocabulary and story that kids can easily understand. That's why I was SO excited to interview Mariana about the book she's written "A Color Named Love". She is non-monogamous herself, and when thinking about having kids she noticed a lack of children's books normalizing love in ALL of it's forms. Mariana is launching a Kickstarter campaign to illustrate and publish the book.

Amory 37 | Why Close a Polyamorous Relationship? (Kyle & Megan)
One of the misconceptions about polyamory is that the relationship is always open. There are times and places for a "closed' relationship, where the partners can establish a sense of safety in the relationship. That is what Kyle and Megan explore in this episode, after they nearly let their fear get the best of them. Instead, they decided to ask for what they need while they are apart - a focus on each other (and their other partner).  The best thing about polyamory is that you can create the agreement of the relationship(s) based on what you need in the moment...and it is always open to shift again!  Ready to Transform your Jealousy?

Amory 36 | Marty Faces a New Hidden Dragon
We all face fears when in relationships, especially as those relationships deepen. In this episode, Marty speaks from a vulnerable place, as he faces his fears of losing his partner in South America. He realizes that he can create the exact thing that he is afraid of, if he acts from a place of fear. But, he is not sure how to get himself to a place of safety. This podcast was real-time processing as Megan asked Marty questions while he was "in his wound" and triggered around an event that happened with his parnter...and his insights bleed into even the nature of our reality...is it subjective or objective?  Ready to Transform your Jealousy?

Amory 35 | Brain Sex with Kyle & Megan
Alright, so this title may be a bit misleading...but "Brain Sex" is what we (Kyle and Megan) say when we're exploring ideas together. And, since we can't have physical sex...this is the next best thing during our long-distance portion of our relationship. We start out talking about Kyle's experience meeting Kirby in person along with our experiences of insecurities. We also share our different views about Aubrey Marcus and his recent marriage showing his shift from polyamory back to monogamy, and wrap up with a deep dive into some of Megan's theories about love and life.  Enjoy!  Ready to Transform your Jealousy?

Conflict and power dynamics are a part of any relationship, so it’s especially important to discuss in polyamorous relationships. In this episode, we go back and forth between our personal dynamics and social dynamics.  We believe that if we can each practice working through conflict in our personal relationships in a healthy way, we can bring this to society at large.  We dig into conflicts and power dynamics in our polycule, and how we've been able to grow through them.  Ready to Transform your Jealousy?

Please note - this episode is NOT about polyamory. We believe that a collective transformation in progress, and individually we each have a personal transformation in progress.  These conversations are the ones we need to have - to speak outloud with the people close to us, to look at our past with a new awareness, to own our actions or in actions, and to allow for our own learning curve from ignorance to understanding. If we hope for a collective transformation of our society, we have to start at the individual level. Black Lives Matter.

Amory 27 | Community - Marty Loves a Trans Woman
Marty interviews his friend Dala, a trans woman living in Mexico, about identity, love, masks, pronouns, gender, sexuality, PTSD, vulnerability, safety, protesting, allies, self alignment, skin color, homophobia just to name a few. It is a powerful episode that is authentic and bold. Dala is a brilliant human with so much to share and teach the world. It was one of Marty's favorite episodes to record, and it ended up being very timely. The episode was recorded on May 15th, 2020 a couple of weeks before the protests in the US were met by violent police responses. When you listen to the episode it may seem like we were foreshadowing what was to come in the world. This episode is a raw look at a distinction between identity and the masks we wear in society. Masks can be dangerous when they become mistaken for our identity, but masks are also a survival mechanism in a cruel and ignorant world. This episode is dedicated to our LGBTQ community, our allies, and to those looking to evolve their own way of being. This episode will cause you to reflect. It may challenge your beliefs. It may make you smile. It may make you cry. But, no matter what we hope that it inspires you to help shape the world as we move forward as a planet. There is no return to normal. The new world is here. What do you want it to be like? Now is the time to be the change we wish to see in the world. We hope this conversation helps prime a deep state of understanding. I hope that it helps create a more safe world for my friend to live in her true identity without fear.  The hard truth - she's not safe.  Here are some of the resources we talk about in the episode: About PTSD - The Body Keeps Score About Ikigai - How to Ikigai (Ted Talk) About Skin Color - The Beauty of Human Skin in Every Color (Ted Talk) Support these organizations: Casa de las Muñecas Tiresias AC Casa Arcoiris Albergue Temporal The Okra Project Lastly, if this episode touched you, please share it. It is our mission at Amory to help the world with one vulnerable conversation at a time.

Amory 26 | How are Minimalism and Polyamory Connected?
"As you adopt a practice of minimalism around objects, it starts to bleed into other areas and dimensions of your life.  Minimalism is a clearing out process, and that process applies to relationships too. You start clearing out the toxic, loud, noisy, time-consuming relationships that don't really pay off, and you start giving yourself more time. You start realizing who you have neglected and you realize that one of those people might be yourself."  - Marty Bhatia on "Clearing the Noise"  -  There are more connections between minimalism and polyamory than may appear at first glance - which is why we are so excited to share this conversation with you. Please let us know what you think, and if you find these connections in your life as well.  Resources mentioned:  Marie Kundo Book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up Amanda Palmer: Book and TED Talk - "The Art of Asking"  Gaining value from these conversations?

Sex at the root, is really about how we relate to ourselves. So, in that way, we view the sexual component of our relationships as another learning path...a really fun one:)  In addition to this public podcast, we created a special podcast on the topic of sex for Amory Patrons, revealing more details about our own sexual journey.

Amory 23 | How do Polyamorous Relationships Evolve?
Relationships are not static, they evolve over time naturally if we allow them to. Unfortunately, we usually don't recognize those moments as we are going through them, because they can occur to us as a breakdown or crisis of the relationship. In this episode, Megan and Kyle reflect on the pivotal moments that allowed for the evolution into a polyamorous partnership (spoiler alert: lots of gratitude for Marty!)  They also naturally identified what they believe to be the crucial component of maintaining a polyamorous relationship (or any relationship, for that matter!).  Gaining value from these conversations?

"What do you tell your kids?" and more.  We also cover our thoughts on Santa Claus, Marty's 80/20 rule, and what we think the kids will need to thrive in the years to come...given this uncertain world we live in.  We answered additional questions (what if partners want kids? when did we decide to show affection?

Right now, most of us could use more “safe spaces” to feel and express our feelings. In this episode, we start by getting emotionally current with each other, during which we see how we allow (or not allow) for each other's feelings.  We all share our own personal experiences around expressing emotions, what makes us feel unsafe, and then wrap up with some very specific practices that we all can do to   create a safer space for ourselves and others.  Books Mentioned:   Secret language of feelings by Calvin D.

In this episode of Amory, Kyle shares his ideas about energetic freedom, choosing himself, all arising from his decision to stay in New Zealand. As usual, we find overlaps with our current life lessons, and Marty takes the opportunity wrap Kyle's decision around his Ikigai (life purpose). We also use Karpman's Drama Triangle (Victim, Persecutor & Rescuer), and learn how to move beyond it to a healthy version to an Empowerment Triangle (Survivor/Creator, Coach, Challenger). Megan shares her insight about being her own persecutor, which had kept her in victim mode...but no longer!  Resources Mentioned: - Kyle’s Medium article “How do we Create Energetic Freedom” - Karpman’s Drama Triangle - 5 minute informational video - Ikigai article Gaining value from these conversations?

We ask the question - Are people practicing polyamory more equipt in times of change?

We are very fortunate to be in a position where we were able to share our relationship status without major repercussions.

Public Service Announcement | Stop & Repair Clause (ad free)
This short podcast is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for our community. It's inspired by a conversation Marty has had with a member of another polycule that is very close to ours.  This is about a clause in Megan & Marty's relationship agreement that has helped them successfully navigate opening their relationship. It now includes Kyle and Marty's partner as they have grown to a loving polycule and metamors are included. It's about what to do when one or more member of your relationship(s) is going through a crisis of the heart, or fear, or trauma, or anything that requires you all to remove the noise of too many variables hitting at once. It's about getting to the core of the issue. It's about owning your own shit, and being a support for one another's growth. It's not about being fair all the time. It's about being the best versions of ourselves. It's about leading life with love. It's what Amory is all about.  This episode is dedicated to those of you who need a little extra love right now. There are no ads. There are no calls to action. This is simply for us to be a source of love and support to our community. We love this community and have been given so much love and support it is our honor to have you listening.  Love,  Megan, Marty, Kyle, and one more :)

No matter what your current relationship structure, having the courage to bring up a conversation around needs/wants can be scary, let alone admitting them to ourselves.

Why is it important to create a safe space for yourself and your partner(s)? And, how do you do it? Why is it important to time to reflect on our own needs? How do good intentions become a crutch? How have Megan and Marty used MDMA as a therapy tool? At the end of the episode, we walk the walk- making real time requests of each other around our current needs.

As she recorded this she was sitting in an AirBnB with Kyle in the Netherlands. Marty is in Belgium with the kids. The world they live in could have never been predicted by any of them.  But, if anything it shows their commitment to love is powerful, well...you'll just have to listen to find out. She shares her vision of a world where we prioritize relationships, parenting, learning and love. Can you imagine this world?  Gaining value from these conversations?

Amory 7 | Almost the End of a Marriage & a Promise to Recommit
In this episode Megan comes clean to the listeners in a conversation with Marty about how she nearly sabotaged their marriage. This was a really hard episode for Megan to record. She will reveal her patterns of denial, some atrocious behavior, and what she's working on right now to make her relationship with Marty (and others) stronger.  Marty's part is to tell the story of his experience in the breakdown, and what led him to present Megan with "change the behavior or expect divorce." It was a hard couple of weeks leading up to this chat.  Megan and Marty will give some advice from each of their perspectives, and discuss how having an open marriage with their tribe of support is a big part in what saved them from total disaster in their marriage.  Gaining value from these conversations?

Amory 5 | Marty and Kyle Discuss Toxic vs. Healthy Masculinity
What does it mean to be masculine? Why is it important to address toxic masculinity? What does healthy masculinity look like and what are the practices to reach it?  In this episode, Marty and Kyle discuss these their own personal journeys around the constructs and behaviors of masculinity. From creating a place of safety for yourself and others, seeing vulnerability as a strength, and learning forgiveness and gratitude, we all can live from a more balanced masculine energy. They share some very practical ways for all of us to create a more healthy masculinity in society...which will benefit us all.   Gaining value from these conversations?

Amory 1 | Where do we start?
Two years ago, there is no way I would have guessed I was going to host a podcast on these subjects...so how did I get here?   My husband and I have been married 15 years, have twin 4 year olds, and finally feel like we are living life beyond default. I started dating Kyle about a year and a half ago. Everything was open and consensual, although none of us knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into. Since then, we've started to let go of the old paradigms of life that no longer serve us, and are now living a life definitely on the edge of social norms. Listen to the episode to learn more about the journey into the world of polyamory, and just love in general.  Our friend describes the podcast as a "Love University" and we like that idea:)   Books Referenced in the podcast:  - More Than Two by Franklin Veaux  - The Ethical Slut by Janet W.
