A five day INITIATION INTO THE SPIRITUAL SCIENCE OF TRADITIONAL TANTRA YOGA & SUBTLE SEXUALITY.
Enter the timeless wisdom of Tantra while gently expand your sense of Personal Identity and your Sensual Perception of Reality.
This Sacred and Untamed land will allow for the intimate meeting with your Sacred and Untamed Self: your TRUE SELF. Eternal and Infinitely Possible.
From this space personal wisdom will naturally arise, as the whisper of the Beloved.
The True Meeting of masculine and feminine forces happens at the level of the Human Heart.
This is called Sacred Lovemaking.
When we learn to surrender to every moment with the same totality of lovemaking, we learn The Sacred Art Of True Loving. And Living.
With an exquisite blend of ancient teachings, contemporary practices,and embodiment of Tantric transmissions, Valentina will take you into a journey towards the center of your being: where time expands into Infinite Perfection.
Tantra is YOU. It’s your unique journey towards yourself.
It’s your ability to Embody Bliss ,recognize your own Perfection,and find Freedom.
TANTRA is the MEETING with EVERY MOMENT as YOUR INNERMOST LOVER.
The Way of the Lover.
TRADITIONAL TANTRA YOGA – rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Vedas and the healing science of Ayurveda, this āsanas practice will be the container for all the other practices. Focused on intrinsic relaxation of the physical body and the conscious mind, this sequence will meditate you into the Deepest Essence of your Being , where True Self can be revealed. From this space of infinite stillness authentic expression can be found. (This practice is accessible to all ages and levels of fitness)
SUBTLE SEXUALITY – An exploration of the refined, subtle movements of Sexual Energy in the body. These Sensual Meditations will naturally flow out of the āsanas of stillness and will reveal new pathways for sexual energy to express beyond the gross body. From this place we can start nurturing a Sensual Relationship with All that surrounds us, and expand our perception of Sexuality and Reality. To then culture this effortless flow is to be blessed by the Sacred Preciousness of Being Alive… (no nudity is required)
BLISSDANCE – is a Spontaneous Harmonious movement of the body when the body is in an Authentic space of Relaxation. Then, like in True Lovemaking, the meeting with the other is nothing else that the meeting with our-own-self. The Sacred Self : an Eternal Still Center in Movement. Bliss.
SELFLOVING – Tantra teaches that there is only You. And your perception of Reality. Nothing else truly Exists. With this understanding Self-Loving become then the greatest act of Worship to the Grace of Existence. Love is nothing else than Life Force expressing herself though you, AS YOU.
Possibly the only real purpose for being alive.
SILENT WALKS – the Infinite land that surrounds this pristine venue, effortlessly leads toward the infinite aspects of the Self. Let the African land seduce you into an act of active Surrender, and enter the ways of the lover…
PLANET XANCARA – Eland’s bay
Just over 2 hours drive from Cape Town into the most Sacred Untamed land, home to wild Leopards and ancient Bushman’s rock paintings.
“The moment you arrive , you stop and take a deep breath…hold it, hold it… and breathe out. What’s in front of you might just be the most beautiful place you have ever seen. (…) By sunset, everything surrounding you is inevitably intoxicating. The two black eagles nesting on top of a tall rock in the distance might fly by and do their little show. The wind might pick up a bit, but just so that the mix of the warm and cold air leaves a tickling sensation on your skin. The colours. The light. Yeah, the light… I think I will let the pictures answer for what the concept of “golden hour” means here.”

“Dear Valentina , Of the many gifts you shared with me, the most important was your sharing of love,” AA
“…And Valentina told me, love is the wind, and for the first time I understood that it was real!” OJAS MICHELE
“An utterly profound practice, Tantra Yoga takes one to the depths of the body and through that shows how to move in the world . Valentina is a wonderful guide. Very highly recommended.” SY TZU
“I’ve found Valentina’s teaching of Tantra Yoga to be a powerful practice for balancing mind, body and heart. The practice takes you deep into relaxation while also deeply working the body – but somehow that deep, deep letting go is what gives us access to a far greater knowing of our true nature. The letting go is a falling in love with ourselves.” SHAKTI MALAN
“I think I had very little idea of the true impact it was going to have on me. Going into the weekend knowing nothing about Tantra other than what I had read on wikipedia, my mind was truly opened to something whole, beautiful and truly special and I KNOW I have barely even broke the surface of the practice and philosophy. I found the experience deeply resonating with something in me and, I think, I may have just found that missing piece in understanding myself and my place on Planet Earth that weekend.” DAN NEVILLE
