EMBRACING THE BELOVED Awakened Relationship Training
|I'm super excited to announce that the Core Training is developing into EMBRACING THE BELOVED: a 6 month program with intensive residential weekends, online group & private sessions, membership site, and ongoing community support. I've known for some time that this work needs a deeper container and ongoing learning community to be all it can be, and here it is. We'll have the time to sip the lessons, integrate, and grow together in the group. It will include the content from Self-Sourcing, Erotic Devotion, and Awakening the Constant Heart, expanded and enhanced as a Rigorous Multidimensional Mystery School. Everything you need to master COMMUNICATION, TRIGGERS, and the science of Creating Fulfilling Stable RELATIONSHIPS THAT WORK & UPLIFT. Install a durable foundation for Spiritual Awakening, and re-thread all your relationships to that octave...|

It's what there is to do with an open heart, and mastering our Personal Power is the only way to stabilize our Heart Awakening and keep it from frequently crumbling. Prosperity, Power Relations, Intentional Creation, & Fully Embodied Awakening...|
|The EHA (Erotic Healing Arts) Practitioner Certification is alive & well, and will be offered again in 2020. This extended mentorship will take you deep into the Jedi level skills in releasing trauma into ecstatic pleasure & intimacy - for you and your beloved(s), Tantra buddies, & clients.|
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.
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…

~ Amara Karuna, Tantra Teacher
“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…”
“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
“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, CA
“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.”
David Imiri: David's work is about awakening and stabilizing authentic Heart presence, with a focus on sacred intimacy. David has recently returned to school to pursue his doctorate in psychology. He brings deep and well-honed abilities of holding space, insight & articulation, intuition, gentle challenge, and nurturing care. Having practiced individual and relationship counseling, bodywork, and leading groups for 30 years, David has received initiation in several spiritual traditions and been mentored by a number of eclectic trailblazers. Devotional by nature, his special pleasure is in mentoring clients and beloved friends 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.
