Special Event in Santa Monica, California
For this special event, bestselling author David Deida dives deeper with participants, continuing to light the way to a fuller expression of our unique purpose in love and life. David teaches that in order to offer our deepest gifts–whether in bed, with our art, or through our work–we relax and surrender as this open moment, trusting the total power that lives us now. Abiding freely as unknowing, we allow our whole sexual body to incarnate love without hesitation.
Join in a rare, two-evening public teaching appearance with David Deida for The Sexual Power of Now: A Deeper Dive into Love, in Santa Monica, California, May 6-7, 2017. In addition to to spontaneous teaching and dialogue, David will be working directly with audience members, offering participants a deeper dive into into his recent explorations and discoveries in:
• Sustaining whole-body surrender in intimacy
• The ‘hurts so good’ nature of deep sex
• The sexual weaving of effort and yearning
• Loving fear and anger as textures of openness
• Freeing energy through aggressive sex
• And more…
Doors open at 6:30pm both nights. From 7:00pm to 10:00pm (with intermission), David Deida will be teaching, answering questions, and working with audience members one-on-one.
This event will sell out. Please register early to reserve your seat!
