Join us and make 2019 your BREAKTHROUGH AWAKENING year!

The Passionate Awakenings Core Training is a Mystery School in 4 trainings, and is a profound initiation into the nitty gritty of

"Tantra as a path of Awakening, from the INside Out"

A Tantra that comes from our hearts and follows the energy of the moment towards authentic Awakening. All the trainings include a balance of exploring Tantric practices & principles ~ dialogue, discussion, & spot coaching ~ and opportunities to dive deep and experiment with what we've learned in exercises of sensual heart connecting.

There are 2 Foundations trainings, Erotic Devotion & Self-Sourcing, and 2 Advanced trainings, Awakening the Constant Heart & Keys to Freedom. Do any one Foundations training first, and you may then do the others in any order.

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 Erotic Devotion really?
How can we experience it, and how is it different from what we usually do in lovemaking or Tantra?
It is said that all our central longings are really the longing for God in disguise. 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 a 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 intimate 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.
~ We ARE what we Seek ~
That’s at the center. But what do we do?

Practices are the easy part. There’s lots of places you can learn positions, rituals, Hindu words, and theory. I do some of that too, but I find that what people really need to practice Tantra are the insights and skills that can help us to consistently deepen self-connection, authentic contact, and flow with energy. And what I’m most interested in is what interrupts that and sends us into going past what feels good, staying shallow or faking along, or reaching a trigger and bailing. Ouch. Fortunately there are principles and that can help us, and experiences that highlight our own responses to the dynamics of intimate relating. That’s the fast track to more of what we actually want from practicing Tantra, with our partners, ourselves, and the world…

“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. 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.
~ 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.”
