Whatever nerves I had about trying a [Dare to be Adventurous event] were quickly alleviated by Viktoria’s skillful facilitation of this event. She was thoughtful and engaging and created a safe space for the group to really dive in. Just an amazing experience that allowed me to learn alot about myself in a fun and dynamic way. I can’t wait to engage in more beautiful and healing workshop experiences. Thank you for a delicious experience, see you soon.
Viktoria has created a beautiful and safe experience for people to explore the world of tantra in a loving and playful environment.
We were able to connect with others within our own comfort zones through engagement or by simply discussing different topics. This event allowed us to reconnect with our natural loving state and to play within our boundaries.
I was able to experience feelings of love, empathy and laughter with strangers who offered the same level of respect and curiosity towards myself.
Thank you! You are creating important community!
A safe and fun environment was created where we were guided through an evening of really enjoyable dark tantra exercises similar to speed dates. Before starting each exercise, you and your partner set personal limits and boundaries. This allowed you to make a real connection with your partner. The evening was an enjoyable way to meet new people.
Thank you for hosting such an enjoyable evening. Looking forward to future events.
Heart to heart hugs.
Easy activities that were modifiable with different energetic bodies – thumbs up!
Just overall good fun
I truly enjoyed the event.
Usually I am a [giver] but opted to be a [receiver] during the exercises. A safe environment was provided that allowed me to be open to explore this side of myself. Each activity had us check in with our partner ensuring we were grounded and ready to engage, modify or discuss the activity as well as check each other’s boundaries.
The exercises progressed from vanilla to grey over the evening. You know it was good fun when 2 hours felt like 15 minutes. By the end of the exercises my emotional and energy levels were way up.
Looking forward to Level 2.
Loved meeting different people and had the opportunity to discuss and experience level 1 [exercises of relating] with various personalities. With each new partner and activity, the anticipation was as tantalizing as the act of doing them. I learned much about myself and was able to breakthrough my comfort zone and discovered my boundaries. Thank you
Thank you for a wonderful event. It was good to see you again. Loved the learning. I feel more confident in asking for what I want in a relationship as well as in intimate play.
Until next time! Gracefully,
I liked that I could experiment in a safe regulated space it felt nice to have someone other than my lover run a feather over my face and not feel like I am being unfaithful. It was good to know I can feel pleasure with some one else.
Viktoria created an incredibly safe environment. She does a great deal of work to make everyone involved have a safe and good environment. I will happily return.
Thank you for a wonderful experience last night!
A great way for me to identify my role in intimate relationship dynamics, all done in a fun, friendly and safe environment. Two thumbs up! Look forward to the next one.
It was good practice to honestly verbalize what I wanted, and I can see how important that is to intimacy.
I enjoyed connecting with lots of different people, feeling their energy and interacting with them. It was a safe, yet interesting and stimulating environment.
Bring on level 2!!
I was pleasantly surprised by your event – I like how it made me feel vulnerable, actually!
About the Creation of Dare to be Adventurous
The Dare to be Adventurous: The Ultimate Play & Connect Challenge is a passionate project that came together through the creative expression of the dynamic playfulloving team (Viktoria and associates).
Recognizing and identifying with clients, and personal experience that people are in: emotional pain; struggling; challenged by awkward social relating and lack of communication skills; and most importantly, unable to be fully present. Technology has not necessarily contributed to greater intimacy. It is the opposite. It has created distance and contraction within. You are not alone.
From this great need for deeper intimacy and genuine connection, the inspirational spark for learning events with a safe and fun container to support you and people like you. To show up fully, authentically, and be consciously present. We know that everyone has the ability to have the vibrant, healthy, and playful loving intimacy they desire.
This passion for greater intimacy helped in designing simple, quick and playful learning events. To help you integrate new relating and communication skills into your heart, body and mind in a deliciously fun way!
Looking forward to guiding you!
Wondrous delights abound,
