    Extended Class Times!

    This year, class slots have been expanded to 90 minutes! More time for your questions, extra content, or just time for you to digest before the next session!

  • Missed a class? No you didn’t

    When you have so many great classes, how do you choose between one and another? This year, maybe you won’t have to. A limited number of classes will be presented at two different times. This give you the chance to see a class and see the class across from it!

Falling in love is the easy part. But what happens after that? Beyond The Love’s mission is to provide an opportunity for the polyamorous community to come together in an educational and social forum.

At Beyond the Love you will find a wealth of classes, workshops and mini events to learn tools, techniques and communication skills to enhance our poly relationships. We provide a safe environment for meeting with other like-minded people in a supportive and inclusive community.

We welcome all those living a poly lifestyle or considering doing so. We are passionate about recognizing poly as a relationship choice and sharing common experiences on our many different paths. We hope you’ll join us and share yours!

Presenters are chosen not because of degrees or academic studies (although many have impressive resumes) but because of actual experience living a poly lifestyle.


World class workshops and classes designed to enhance your poly life!


This year, we bring back the ‘pop up vendors!’ Find fun, poly friendly vendors who might show up anywhere. Send a secret message with a cake pop!


The North American premier of the new docs-comedy on polyamory!


You won't want to miss this one!

"The Big Girl Burlesque is a troop of like-minded, self-confident voluptuous, vivacious vixens who know you don't need to look like Dita Von Tease to make folks drool"

Supportive Environment

Surround yourself with likeminded people who are there for the same reason you are!

Live Band

New this year! During our dance, we will have both a DJ and a live band!

Various Poly Styles

coming soon

Not only will you find classes that reflect a number of poly relationship styles, but you can also get involved in representing yours - or learning about others - in the Friday night Relationship Styles Summit

Mid West Poly Leadership Summit

Connect with other leaders from around the Midwest! Network and interact with your peers...or get your questions answered on starting your own group!

Roaring 20’s Ball

Our Saturday night dance is a huge hit each year. This time bring your rip roaring 1920’s garb! From gangsters to G-men; from Boardwalk Empires to flappers!

The PolyAthalon

coming soon

Announcing a brand new mixer created just for #BeyondTheLove2015 - the PolyAthalon!

Going to an event filled with hundreds of complete strangers can be daunting, especially when the weekend focuses on something that requires trust and communication (like, say, polyamory!) Come to the PolyAthalon, and mix and mingle with the friendly faces who will be in the other workshops and classes you'll be attending the rest of the weekend.

Boi Kris will lead a series of entertaining games and scenarios designed with YOU in mind. These activities, guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, let you learn a little more about the others attending Beyond The Love, and maybe even yourself! (Don't worry - there's no quiz at the end - just lots of laughter and fun along the way!)

Extrovert? Introvert? Single? Partnered? Seasoned Beyond The Love Veteran? Complete Poly-Newbie? This mixer has something for everybody - No Actual #Polyamory Experienced Needed to play!

Great Social Spaces

We block off the event space to allow you the space and environment to be who you want to be
