PERSONAL INTENSIVE AND PRACTITIONER TRAINING
with Valentina Leo
7 Nights of Deep Immersion into the Mysteries of Sexuality,Spirituality and Yoga.
In This Retreat I will offer you everything I've got.
I will share with you my innermost intimate Lover: Non-Dual Siva Tantra. The Luminous Darkness of my Heart.The Tiger in my Soul.
In 20 years of Tantric search I have come to the realization that Guru is not in human form - Guru is the Power that unfolds from my Devotion to the Practice.
True worship is expressed when there is no attachment to any outcome, but complete surrender into the delight of the act of worship itself.It is the depth of this surrender that will dictate the depth of the Revelations.
In this retreat I will offer Myself.
From the depth of my Knowing, and the intensity of my Loving.
Uncensored and Untamed.I will not protect and guide,
I will be devoid of separation and offer you full Transmission.
Come and take from me, as there is nothing I want to keep for myself alone any longer. I want to offer You everything I am.
WHAT THIS TRAINING IS ABOUT?
After over a decade of teaching I had to surrender to my innate urge not to follow a Program!
My teaching cannot be linear because I teach about the effervescent cyclical roundness of reality: the pathless path of Non-Dual Tantra.
Without a path, the Training can only expressas an actual INITIATION:
everything is told at the start, there is no progressive quest.
Tantra will always meet you in the perfection of where you are at.
Tantra never changes, YOU do.
At the core of all learning is to find out who we really are.
Is to allow and trust that our deepest Desires are the threads into knowing ourselves - not as Mind concepts supporting our social structure - but as an EXPERIENCE.
This is the Yoga of Naked Awareness.
When we simply become Empty Space and Flowing Breath.
True knowing starts in the body. Then it moves from the Heart to the Head...and only then can it become true Wisdom. Mere intelligence without heart centered body wisdom is pretty useless if we want to create communities of Expansive Living and Loving.
(in other words, what we call A NEW WORLD)
Its this True Knowing that transforms our mere living into a
Living Celebration of the Eternal Self.
Love emerges from you because IT IS YOU.
The combination of Traditional Tantra Yoga, Tandava and The Yoga of Touch will take you into the deepest wisdom of your True Being.
I will only midwife this process for you, I will introduce you to the practices and then I will leave you alone with the Guru.
THIS IS THE INITIATION INTO MORE OF WHO YOU ARE.
IT'S THE BREAKING DOWN OF SPIRITUAL FANTASIES.
FROM THIS PLACE INTUITIVE WISDOM WILL NATURALLY ARISE
AND IT WILL GUIDE YOU INTO YOUR TRUE DIRECTION.
Source will embody and communicate to you in the only language that you,and you alone can hear.
(I can offer you some translation support but cannot dictate your development)
This experience will initiate you to the next level of your life.
The Practice Guru will empower you into a new expansive, all-inclusive future.
TO BE LIVING LIKE AN ABSOLUTE LOVER IN ORDINARY LIFE WILL GENERATE CONTINUOUS AND RELENTLESS WONDERMENT,
WHICH IS THE VERY SUBSTANCE OF AWAKENING.
"It is of utmost importance to really understand that consciousness is not unveiled by sudden orgasmic fits or any use of extreme energetic exercises, agitation, gesticulations, pseudoshamanic dances, and other popular tidbits of "doing" in what is sold in the West under the name of Tantra - but, rather, by the slow and gentle emergence of Objectless Love, which calmly waits for us to stop pursuing the unattainable."
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 reveals.
From this space of infinite stillness, authentic expression can be found.
(This practice is accessible to all ages and levels of fitness)
TANDAVA - a Traditional Tantric Practice from the Kaula Tradition of Kashmir, Tandava is the oldest form of yoga known to us. Often depicted in the traditional iconography of northern India, Kashmir and Tibet, Tandava is a very slow, mystical dance that leads to the perception of the Cosmic Body and Attunement to our Infinite Nature. As a traditional practice of Totality, Tandava can indeed catalyze the experience of Spiritual Awakening.
THE YOGA OF TOUCH - the Sacred Art of Kashmiri massage - is a Traditional Meditation practice from the Kaula Tradition of Kashmir, that uses touch work as a tool to understand the SELF as Empty Space and Absolute Bliss. This is an expanded progression of the practice of Tandava, and has the ability to profoundly nourish our nervous systems, to restore our innate sense of belonging, to reset our connection to life at large and to finally receive our body as an expression of Divine Celebration. Our birthright.
(We will be working in pairs and some levels of nudity will be required.
Your limits and your availability will be highly respected. Your spontaneity is invited.)
BLISSDANCE - is a Spontaneous Harmonious movement of the body when it is in an Authentic space of Relaxation as it meets Another. Then, like in True Lovemaking, the meeting with the other is nothing else than the meeting with our-own-self.
The Sacred Self: an Eternal Still Center in Movement. Bliss.
SILENCE - the Infinite quietude of the land leads effortlessly toward the infinite silence of the Self. We will spend mealtimes in ritualistic silence,allowing for inner quiet to reveal.

“…at one moment I opened my eyes and it wasn’t you standing there, but the Goddess herself.
You were holding her energy so powerfully. Thank you Valentina for a truly wonderful day.
I had a spiritual experience, and it felt like the tip of the iceberg"
"Your presence inspired me to go deeper into me.
It opened up a connection to an energy I have never experienced before."
"I feel like the whole centre of my being has been shifted, thank you for your insight, wisdom, tenderness and compassion. A process that has shifted the whole foundation of my core belief of not being good enough, which has been the plague of my whole life"
"If I could be in South Africa, I would run to all the workshops of Valentina Mrslove.
I attended some of her sharings when we met in India, Goa, last December -
and I must say it was one of the most powerful and meaningful moments in my life."
"I expected my time with Valentina to be life changing, imagine my surprise when it wasn't,
instead it was LOVE changing!!!"
"Dear Valentina, I am so inspired by the purity and truth of your work.
And such softness...such sweet softness. You are beautiful."
"...And Valentina told me, love is the wind, and for the first time I understood that it was real!"
