I have always been fascinated with people and relationships. Ever since I can remember I would be the one mediating friendships or even conversations between my parents. I always had an intuitive ability to see beyond the words to the pain and desire behind the words.
I have always seen people for their true potential, and have always believed in their ability to achieve the things that they truly desire. I grew up in the church and as a result, I learned that we often had to put limits on our true potential and desires in order to “do the right thing" and “fit the mold."
Several years ago, I was able to Break Free from the religious and social programming or as I like to say, the boxes. It took a lot of tears, research, and soul searching. What I discovered was a whole world of people who valued authenticity as much as I did and lived a life of freedom and confidence. Leaving your faith is a huge shift in your worldview and it’s so scary. I discovered Sex Positivity. As part of my deconversion journey, I started listening to Playboy Radio all the time. I had always been taught that “those people" were unable to truly love. They lived in shame and had no self worth. What I discovered was the complete opposite.
In listening to and reading about “the worst of the worst," I discovered that these were my people. They were authentic, loving, kind, well spoken, not afraid to be themselves, and actually loved their lives and who they were. I discovered a whole new world including Ethical Non-Monogamy. It was beautiful, rich, authentic and a lot of fun. It was bringing people together to have real conversations with themselves and creating beautiful, loving connections within marriages as well as outside of the relationship.
9 years later, I have discovered the most wonderful life. I have discovered the most incredible community of people, and have found the most intimate friendships I could ever have dreamed of. I have found empowerment and strength in ways I never imagined. I am truly living my best life all while parenting 3 wonderful teens and being in the most incredible relationship that I have been able to design for myself. I have so much love to give and I have found a way to love without limitations all while upholding my own beautiful boundaries.
I love my life!!!
Karine Bedard is an Empowerment and Sex Positive Relationship Coach. Her mission is to help individuals and couples Break Free from Societal and Religious programming to live authentically. She is normalizing Ethical Non-Monogamy (open relationships) so that others can finally have Choices about what kind of relationships they want to design for themselves.
She is passionate about changing the stigma surrounding Open Relationships because nobody should be afraid to lose their job or lose their children because of their relationship choices. Sex Positivity does not make someone immoral. Shame and guilt should not control your life and determine your ability to live authentically. Judgment is not authentic. Curiosity is what brings communities together and builds connection with others.
Come and find your non-judgemental tribe and live authentically!!
