A Day of Passionate Awakening
Saturday Feb 8, 2020 10 AM – 10 PM
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.
Self-Sourcing deepens our capacity to practice deep self-connection and authentic contact. But there’s specific ways our beliefs, conditioning, identities, & trauma get in the way! Unpacking all this, and learning the skills of Self-Sourcing, opens up the space to BRING OUR Security, Self-Esteem, and Love to the relating, giving new life, intimacy, and pleasure to all our relationships.
What is a Trigger & how can we disarm it?
What is Trauma & how can we heal it?
What are Emotions really, 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…

“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 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 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
