Bold = multi-day training   Purple = Online Events  All times are Pacific

The Passionate Awakenings training has 4 levels, and is a profound initiation into the mysteries of
“Tantra as a path of Awakening, from the INside Out”
Remembering and recreating the feminine side of Tantra, for a new time.
Level 1 lays the foundations for a Tantra liberated from prescriptions and dogmas tainted by patriarchal values, a Tantra that comes from our hearts and follows the energy of the moment with exquisite sensitivity and deep insight into authentic Awakening.

What is Erotic Devotion really?

How can we experience it, and how is it different from what we may have already done in Tantra?

It is said that all our central longings are really the longing for God in disguise. This doesn’t mean we wouldn’t pursue those things as we’re more deeply rooted in our spiritual core, it just means that the quality of longing would be different, and we’d engage our desires from a more fulfilled place, with more feeling of play, lightness of being, and generous tenderness.

~ We ARE what we Seek ~

Our erotic and relationship longings are among the most powerful and compelling, and are a guide to our core separation wounds, and to our own road home into more complete, lasting, and stable heart awakening. This shows up in how we see our partners, and how we hold our own inner experience in sacred erotic encounters. We can welcome and use everything we experience in erotic connecting to further our awakening. This may happen on it’s own for skilled people, but we can learn to shift our attention and expectations to make more space for this awareness, which opens more emotional safety and insights, and allows for more healing and liberation from mild or strong triggered states.

Explore:
* What is Erotic Devotion?
* Leading & Following
* Giving & Receiving
* Coming & Going
* What stops the flow?
* How are boundaries different in Awakened states?
* The important difference between concepts and phenomena
* What exactly is Heart Awakening, and how can we practice it?
* What skills and sensibilities do we need to cultivate for a full bodied Tantric approach to life?
* Learn to engage our desires from a more fulfilled place, with more feeling of play, lightness of being, and generous tenderness.
* How to create a container of Sacred Relationship, where all our dreams and longings for love can actually be fulfilled.
* Learn what was lost to spiritual lineages during the patriarchal era, and how we can be a part of a modern evolving Tantra that is an authentic path of Awakening, and equally values the ways of the deep feminine…

What to expect:

* Experiential exercises we do alone & with others.
* Raps on topics, group dialogue, & sharing.
* A culminating puja celebration.
* This event is appropriate for all experience levels.
* This is not like most local Tantra events you have been to. This is authentic work on Awakening.

Come join us for a deep weekend dive into these mysteries, in a deeply heartfelt space of sacred safety and tribal community, where everyone is respected and at full choice. Culminating in a beautiful puja celebration of sensual heart connecting…

Praise for Erotic Devotion & Love Tides

“I see that you are a real master of love, and that you excel in guiding people into a space of flowing relaxed openness and presence. Your voice was wonderful to listen to.”
~ Amara Karuna, Tantra Teacher

“David is a holistic slow jam tantra event master. He creates an open and supportive space to feel into the moment in full sensuality experiential mode with yourself and others in a safe and nurturing way. I was overflowing with heart opening after the events! Highly recommended!”
~ Paul Antico

“Wow! No words. Heart wide, smile bright, energy flowing in deeeeeep appreciation. Receiving and savoring. Grateful. So much appreciation for all the heart, body and spirit wisdom that you bring in each precious unfolding moment.
Thank you David. Your essence brings so much medicine.”
~ Lorina Manzanita, Somatic Relationship Coach and Workshop Leader

“I loved how expansive, articulate, and precise you were about specific aspects of the heart awakening process – the missing piece of Tantra taught elsewhere. If you want advanced guidance for deepening into your heart center, go be in this man’s field – he’s brilliant.”
~ Jill Nagle, founder, Wisdom of The Body

“Thank you for showing us what an emotionally available and rooted masculine looks like.”
~ Cathleene Cienfuegos, Tantra Teacher

“Yes totally beautiful, luscious night of heart centered communication, flow and intimacy! Thank you David for creating such an authentic heart space for us to commune in!!!”
~ Leah Zahner

“Take this before signing up for other Tantra workshops – it gives a necessary foundation for working with oneself.”
~ A Workshop Leader

“A lot of the juiciest work with David is subtle and under the surface. Even if it seems slower or less intense than other Tantric workshops, my experience is that this is more sustainable, integratable, enjoyable, and authentic.”
~ A Tantra Teacher

“I have found David to be totally authentic, and a master of his work. When someone has truly mastered his work, the wisdom and clarity just flow. That is the case with David. In every moment, in the group setting, each person got exactly what he/she needed. There was never any phony, airy-fairy bullshit that can sometimes arise in a “consciousness” or “personal growth” or “spiritual” or “tantra” workshop. It’s obvious that David truly loves and cares about the people that show up as his students. He is able to create an incredibly safe space, and a space where people can go very deeply within to parts of themselves that need healing, or need expression. It is easy to find one’s voice in that kind of warm, safe cocoon. I recommend David’s work to anyone who feels a calling to live his/her best life, who wants to live from his/her most authentic self, or who wants to be fully expressed in love, aliveness, and fulfillment.”
~ Joyce Gerber, Owner of Health Is An Inside Job

“I felt safe and seen, and the quality of what David shared was high. David comes truly from his heart, things become light around him. David knows how to shift pain to love and acceptance, like no other. A man who knows the heart of women and men who long to turn to love. Your openness and wisdom, your genuine love and interest… Thank you David.”
~ Carolina

Love Tides is usually included with registration in Passionate Awakenings Level 1: Erotic Devotion
It’s a stand alone event, and also a prelude to the content we dive deep with there.
You can also apply your registration for Love Tides towards Erotic Devotion if you choose to register that night.

Heart presence is the gateway to awakened intimacy, and a key to Tantra. But how can we cultivate and practice that?

In this highly experiential evening, we dive deep into that luscious space in ways that can create new neural pathways, enlarge our capacities, and re-imprint our embodied sensibilities about this. Through sharing in dyads and connecting exercises, we will have the chance open our hearts and enjoy movement, sound, and breath together with many in the room, or stay with one partner (or even just with ourselves) if we prefer. The exercises are unique, designed to bring us into deep self-connection and drop us into the “Ocean of Love that Surrounds and Connects Us”, then to connect with others from that place.

Join us for this juicy ecstatic evening of elevated sensuality. Highly recommended for Erotic Devotion attendees.

Love Tides is a “clothing on” event.
