Wanna reconnect? Tired of online dating? Nervous to put yourself out there? Join us!

These events welcome and support queer, kinky, and/or polyamorous people, ages 25+. We welcome folks who have deep curiosity, and folks who are in these different communities. Please be compassionate to oneself and others in this space. Thank you.

For the next 5 months, in Victoria, BC (Lekwungen Territory) come learn new perspectives on relationships and connections. How will this all work?!

IN-PERSON Event: Each month we will have a different dating theme. The in-person events are meant to get people practicing connection skills, have fun, and well, connect! In a low pressure environment, this is WAY better than swiping on apps. Everyone in attendance is open to connection in some way, but this isn't a prescriptive "speed dating" type event where you will be expected to begin relationships. Come curious and leave your expectations at the door!

COVID: We will be following all COVID- guidelines and there will be follow up emails if anything changes as we continue to gather. We will aim to provide a community care approach to people’s comfort and needs. Masks will be a personal choice, and respected when chosen. If you have symptoms or testing positive for covid-19, please stay home. Please contact Tanille, if you need a refund based on sickness. hello@tanillegeib.ca

DETAILS: All events will be on the 2nd floor of 888 Fort Street. Someone will welcome you up the elevator at 6:30pm. Event promptly starts at 6:45pm and we won’t accept late arrivals.

The Facilitators:

Cora Bilsker of Nested Heart Counselling (she/her)

Cora Bilsker isn't your typical therapist. Her counselling practice aims to release shame by proudly declaring her intention to celebrate and support unconventionality. Whether you're queer, non-monogamous, kinky, into psychedelics, a sex worker or modified, you'll find a home with Nested Heart Counselling. Beginning in 2013 as a Registered Social Worker and growing into a team with like-minded others, she now provides business mentorship, consulting, training opportunities, support groups and practicum supervision in addition to working with clients. Cora believes finding pleasure and feeling free to express your true self is a radical and worthy act, essential for survival in this messed up world.
