Compersion can be defined as the opposite of jealousy. Hypatia, famous polyamorous blogger and inspirational writer, has intensively focused her research on this feeling somewhat unknown to most people.
Through her careful research as well as her personal experience, she has come to the conclusion that compersion is within the reach of every polyamorous individual. However, this feeling of joy towards the happiness of our partners does not happen by chance, or without effort. Her hypothesis: Each polyamorous has specific individual needs that, once fulfilled, allow them to experience a solid and lasting sentiment of compersion.
Hypatia warmly invites the reader on a journey of self-discovery to explore their inner selves to see what their essential compersion needs are. She also addresses the fundamental topic of how one can successfully support their partners and metamours in their own journey towards this liberating experience. Last, not least, she evokes the state of mind necessary for those who wish to develop, or integrate more fully, compersion into their lives.

Marie-Claude L’Archer, writing under the pen name of Hypatia, is an author who lives in Montreal, Canada. She blogs on ethical non-monogamous relationships and was interviewed in newspapers, podcasts and Canadian television. The topic of compersion has fascinated Marie-Claude from her very beginnings as a polyamorist, but she struggled to find information to feed that curiosity. Compersion: Polyamory Beyond Jealousy is, as she always says, the book she wished she could read when she was new at polyamory and struggling to make sense of it.
