• How to Have an Ecstatic Solstice

    Stay in the present moment.

    Don’t try so hard. 

    Stay in the present moment. 

    Drop your expectations and your judgments. 

    Stay in the present moment. 

    Surrender. 

    Stay in the present moment. 

    Be conscious. 

    Stay in the present moment. 

    Practice doing all of this throughout your holidays…

    …in the present moment.

    Happy Solstice!

  • I’m Launching a Brand New Series of Workshops: The Urban Tantra Experience

    A New York Magazine pick for a perfect holiday gift!

    UTE Best Sally copy

    You told me what you wanted, and I listened!

    I’ve created a new series for all of you who asked for longer, more in-depth Urban Tantra workshops. The Urban Tantra Experience premieres in April at Eastover Estate and Retreat in Lenox, MA—a beautiful retreat center in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts.

    Why look any further for that special holiday gift? What could be lovelier than a spring weekend of Tantra in the mountains?

    The Urban Tantra Experience: Breath and Touch
    Rejuvenate your relationship in the Berkshires. The Urban Tantra Experience is an approach to sacred sexuality that adapts and blends conscious sexuality practices from Tantra to BDSM into a hot and healing brand of sex for the 21st century sensualist. Learn the secrets for giving and receiving a body-melting, mind-altering, sensual and erotic massage. You’ll also learn how conscious breath and energy work can transform touch into a deeply intimate ecstatic encounter. All genders and sexual preferences welcome.
