About David Deida

Acknowledged as one of the most insightful and provocative spiritual teachers of our time, best-selling author David Deida continues to revolutionize the way that couples grow spiritually and sexually.

He is known internationally for his unique workshops on spiritual growth and sacred intimacy and is the author of ten books published in more than 25 languages.

He is a founding associate of Integral Institute and has taught and conducted research at the University of California Medical School in San Diego; University of California, Santa Cruz; San Jose State University; Lexington Institute, Boston; and Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, France.

David’s enthusiasm for this particular speaking engagement stems from his connection to his undergraduate alma mater (BA in Theoretical Psychobiology, UF, 1982).

  • “In the area of sacred intimacy, David Deida is holding a lightning bolt. He sheds an astonishing light.”Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love
  • “David Deida is the one western teacher of tantra whose books I read and whom I send students to learn from. The results of true practice, in any tradition, are unmistakable; David Deida demonstrates them.”Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within
  • “We all taste God, taste Goddess, taste pure Spirit in those moments of sexual rapture, and wise men and women have always used that rapture to reveal Spirit’s innermost secrets. David Deida is such a wise one.”Ken Wilber, author of Sex, Ecology, Spirituality


David Deida is a provocative, incisive, compelling, and entertaining speaker. His presentations are largely guided by questions from the audience such as:

  • ~ How do you transform emotional and sexual wounds into gifts?
  • ~ Why is the word “surrender” so offensive to some people and so erotic to others?
  • ~ When is it appropriate for intimate partners to honor each other’s boundaries and when is it appropriate to respectfully penetrate them?
  • ~ Why is it impossible to grow spiritually without embracing our darkest impulses?
  • ~ How can you determine if you will attract a macho man, a “wimp,” or a passionate man; a submissive woman, a “ballbuster,” or a radiant goddess?
  • ~ What must you risk in order to experience deep sexual union and emotional communion?
