Praise for Dr. Valentine
“It has been said that Sally’s teaching is legendary. If one's relationship needs sparks or self needs re-centering, if touch lacks intention or gaze lacks presence, it’s well known, a weekend of instruction with Sally can open up new personal vistas and spots of comfort.
Using trauma-informed Tantra and other mindfulness exercises, Sally helps people to relax, regroup, find new beauty and curiosity, and recreate. With blissful breathing, authentic encounter, intimacy skills, and help re-establishing bonds with self and others, she helps her students and clients develop new emotional and spiritual ways of being. Sally works especially well with couples challenged by earlier trauma, with young people wondering how to create good partnerships, and with empty nesters looking to reconnect.”

Please note that this workshop is for individuals/couples who wish to learn how to partner in ways that honor spiritual connection and sensual-sexual satisfaction. It is not suitable for individuals/couples whose relationship is under stress, and who might better be advised to seek professional counseling.
