3 Month Practitioner Certificate Training
The next practitioner training is planned for December in Seattle
Opening Intensive: 12/1-3, 12/8-10 (two consecutive weekends)
One is in the works for the spring in Brazil!
Have you ever wanted to share deep Erotic Healing with your partner?
In Tantra community?
Maybe even professionally?
Sink in to that ~ savor that thought…
We’ve inherited a lot of shame and baggage from patriarchal culture and our own wounding, in a society that is both fixated on disconnected sexuality, and scared of it at the same time. Scared of being present to the power of what it moves in us, and scared of authentic intimacy and contact.
Many traditions of initiation, awakening, and healing in the past have included an erotic component. Much of that has been lost in the social sphere, but has survived in secret, and is experiencing a resurgence. To really make best use of this encounter in a professional setting, and have safe and effective exchanges reliably (no matter what comes up), we may actually need everything we’d need to be a great trauma therapist, and a lot more besides. But we don’t need that depth of mastery to get started with partners and friends. And if we have strong healing arts background, our path to offering professional services may be short. I’ve been working with trauma and couples counseling for over 30 years, and practicing Erotic Healing Arts for 20 (informally at first). Wherever you are in your development, I can help you get to the next level and beyond…
Come to the opening intensive from anywhere!
During the weekend you will do a self-assessment to tune into your aspirations, intentions, and level of the craft. Then we’ll co-create a customized development plan and homework for you, including practice sessions. This will cover your inner (self-development) and outer (session skills) goals and inquiries, even branding & professional practices if we want to go that far. I’ll personally coach you through the 3 months as you follow your development plan.

David has also led groups for decades, and has received initiation in several spiritual traditions and been mentored by a number of eclectic trailblazers. David’s teachers have included Hamid Almaas, Katie & Jitendra Darling, Antero Alli, Oberon & Morning Glory Ravenheart, Anodea Judith, Charles & Caroline Muir, Kutira & Raphael, Evalena Rose, Sonika Tinker & Christian Pederson, Scott Catamas, Dawna Markova, Arnold Mindell, Lama Shakya Zangpo, Drunvalo.
David was initiated into sacred sexuality by an elder priestess in 1997, and they were lovers for 2 years. Ever since he’s held space for beloveds and friends in community in this way. Devotional by nature, his special pleasure is in mentoring clients and students into greater love, authenticity, self-empowerment, and expansive possibility. David aims to do all things in a relaxed spirit of skillful, creative play and adventure.
“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.”
~ Amara Karuna, Tantra Teacher
“Thank you for showing us what an emotionally available and rooted masculine looks like.”
~ Cathleene Cienfuegos, Tantra Teacher, CA
“My sessions with David have brought me some of the most profound healings I have experienced. He has the ability to intuit needs and desires from a deep place of reverence for the mysteries of the erotic healing arts, and move us both, with integrity and care, into the energy that arises within that space. With laser sharp awareness, his exquisitely responsive hands, heart, and breath move in time with my own rhythms. Each session I find myself deepening ever more into a peaceful surrender to the unfolding of my own process that leaves me both enlivened and deeply relaxed. I highly recommend David to anyone who wants to drop deeply into themselves, cradled within the safe and loving container that he holds.”
“I’m so grateful to know David and to work with him as a Tantric partner, friend and healer. David embodies such deep presence and wisdom, I am truly inspired by him. He is certainly up to the task of holding space for emotional triggers when/if they arise to help heal them, and his unconditional love, clarity, and way of being is a breath of fresh air for anyone who is looking to embody more of their sexual and sensual nature. He honors boundaries and holds such beautiful space for the feminine. He is compassionate and so loving and warm. I feel blessed by his presence.”
“This is my first experience listening to David and trying this type of work with my partner. This gives insight into the humility of David and his skill at helping others through their hardships. What a level of intelligence you have David. You are truly awake… not affected by ego challenges. Safe, sacred space… echoing in my heart now…”
“I am amazed at how effective David’s methods are. By gently guiding me through difficult emotions and situations, he helped me achieve a powerful, trusting, and meaningful relationship with my partner as well as with myself. We are super happy with the work David has done with us, both individually and as a couple. I did not know it was even possible to have such a conscious, loving relationship but here we are – and David helped us get there! David, I cannot thank you enough!”
“Oh my god you are amazing. Every time we meet with you, we seem to evolve in our relationship. Your expertise and kindness are priceless. I am in awe about how perceptive you continue to be. It’s pretty incredible. Thank you for your help. Eternally grateful. ♡”
“David, I want to share some credit I received with you. I just gave a powerful healing session to a client of mine, and when he got off the table, he basically bowed down low and was in a state of gratitude and awe I haven’t seen yet in receivers… And I truly think you helping me tend to my heart had a lot to do with how much love I could channel through my hands. So there… Thanks for being with me in session.”
~ A Healer & Life Coach
“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
“I felt safe and seen, and overall 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, inspired our new fresh approach, learned from you: to love to love to love. Thank you David”
