The Subtle Bliss of Non-Dual Sexual Yoga
Two Evenings of Talks and Dialogues with David Deida
Thursday May 11 – Friday May 12, 7-10 PM
Mill Valley Community Center
180 Camino Alto, Mill Valley, CA 94941
Bestselling author David Deida continues 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 public teaching appearance with David Deida for The Subtle Bliss of Non-Dual Sexual Yoga in Mill Valley, California, on May 11-12, 2017. David will be working directly with audience members in a spontaneous presentation of teaching and dialogue, as well as offering his most recent explorations and discoveries in:
- Breathing love’s bliss in both solitude and two-bodied sexual oneness
- She flowers, he roots: sexual play beyond gender
- Practicing ultimate lovemaking as unending vulnerability
- Relaxing in whole-body trust in intimacy
- Taking it all as one: non-dual sex-play and heart-surrender
We are excited to offer this singular experience in the ongoing work of this revolutionary teacher.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Thursday evening will conclude with a short concert featuring Laura Inserra on the hang until 10:30pm, and Friday evening with feature dancing and grooves by DJ Dragonfly from 10 until midnight.
Beer, wine, and food will be available for purchase. From 7:00pm to 10:00pm (with intermission), David Deida will be teaching, answering questions, and working with audience members one-on-one.
There are limited seats for this event. Please register early!
