The Passionate Awakenings Core Training is a Mystery School that has 4 levels, and is a profound initiation into the nitty gritty of

“Tantra as a path of Awakening, from the INside Out”

Level 2 deepens our capacity to practice the profound non-dual Tantra of deep self-connection and authentic contact. Through a precise understanding of how beliefs, conditioning, identities, & trauma always function as a defense, and disconnect us from being fully present to our experience in the moment (the living energy of us), and mapping our own landscape of these, we learn to drop deeper into the living truth of us, all the way to the big empty space beneath it all, self-sourcing.

We are free to practice within our authentic healthy boundaries & sensitivity with everyone in the training, or with just one partner if we prefer.

What is Self-Sourcing really?

Is it like self-care and meeting our own needs so we can be more centered?

Well, it can mean anything we want, some folks seem to use it that way, but not me. I use the phrase “Self-Sourcing” to distinguish it from “self-connection” which is primary, and has to come first. And both of those have very specific meanings to me. In self-connection we’re learning to deepen our connection to the actual living energy in us, which expresses through our needs, values longings, and desires That’s the real stuff in us, and is the only way through to Self-Sourcing. In Self-Sourcing we go even deeper to realize that we aren’t really even any of the contents of our experience, we’re really just the big alive conscious empty space it all arises in. There’s amazing freedom in that, because there’s nothing that can upset, disturb, or threaten that root of us, and it’s always right there, at peace, underneath everything we’re experiencing. This isn’t usually a dramatic special amazing experience, it’s really completely ordinary, but it’s the most important thing we can learn to be aware of.

I’ve felt that before, and read all about it, but it doesn’t stay. What can we do?

Of course you have. That’s here all the time, and if you hadn’t thought or heard about it, you probably wouldn’t be here reading this. It’s amazing what this awareness opens up, but ya, there’s all kind of stuff that comes up and gets in the way or distracts us. That’s the interesting part, and there’s actually a lot more to learn about that. An accurate understanding and visceral grasp of our own beliefs, conditioning, identities, and trauma clears the way to a much quicker and easier journey to stabilizing our awareness in our deeper Self. That’s what I’ve studied and worked with in myself and many others for decades, and I’ve come up with some interesting new ways to help folks actually find very direct personal experiences of all this, and it’s proven very effective. I don’t want to just give you concepts to ponder, or practices to try, I want to go into the phenomena itself and help you get better oriented in that landscape, so you can navigate for yourself. We do that in the safe, juicy, heart opening container of our community of adventurous souls, and practice it in the setting of Modern Evolving Tantra…

In Level 2 We Explore:

* What is a Trigger & how can we disarm it?
* What is Trauma & how can we heal it?
* What are emotions, and how best to navigate them?
* What is Trust, and how can we know what to trust?
* What is real in us, and what is “unreal”? How can we always tell the difference?
* Mapping our own Beliefs, Conditioning, Identities, & Trauma.
* How can I deepen Self-Connection all the way to Self-Sourcing?
* How does this all come together in practicing Tantra?
* Insights on navigating the transition from Personality to Essence.
* How does “ego” function just like trauma? Is “ego” really nothing but trauma?
* What’s the connection between trauma, “ego”, Essence, and service?
* What’s the secret to happiness? No really, you can be happy most of the time…

What to expect:

* Experiential exercises we do alone & with others.
* Raps on topics, group inquiry & dialogue, deep sharing.
* A culminating puja celebration.
* A Tantric Breathwork journey.
* This event is appropriate for all experience levels.
* This training 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. Includes a beautiful puja celebration of sensual heart connecting…

TESTIMONIES of past attendees:

“Just finished a LUSHous workshop with David Imiri and every cell in my being is radiant with Sutras. If you’re looking for an inspirational, life changing, heart flowering, self pampering, nurturing set of experiences to take with you through life…”
~ Artemis

“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, CA

“Take this before signing up for other Tantra workshops – it gives a necessary foundation for working with oneself.”
~ A workshop leader, CA

“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, CA

“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, CA

“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…Thank you David”
~ Carolina, HI

“I’ve worked with David Imiri, both in group settings, and in a one-on-one situation. I have found him 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. 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. Blocks to love and feeling can melt in the presence and deep listening that he offers. I recommend David’s work to anyone who feels a calling to be fully expressed in love, aliveness, and fulfillment.”
~ Joyce Gerber, Owner of Health Is An Inside Job

Trigger Happy! is usually included with registration in Passionate Awakenings Level 2: Self-Sourcing
It’s a stand alone event, and also a prelude to the content we dive deep with there.
You can also apply your registration forTrigger Happy! towards Self-Sourcing if you choose to register that night.

Our triggers show us where our wounds and conditioning are, I’m talking trauma, and punishment-reward reactions. It’s like we have a mine field, and other people, places, and things step on them and set them off. The things that trigger us may be good or bad, but the triggers are always inside of us, not about what triggered us. It’s vulnerable work, but we create a super safe & supportive space, and it goes quicker than we would think, and can be more fun and fulfilling, when we have the right understandings and approach.
