Dowload Agenda

Come journey with us to the Greek island of Tinos, for an empowering and creative nine-day sacred Yoga and Art Retreat.

Tinos is a Cyclades island filled with delights and treasures. Awaken and rekindle your ancient inner Goddess wisdom through YogART, dream-work/art, intuitive painting, evocation, initiation, personal mythology, ritual, sacred sites, incredible food, and adventure. All illuminated by the intersection of the creative, the sacred, and the healing spirit. We will weave together art, yoga, meditation, connection to the spirit of the land, personal empowerment, a reverence for all life, and Lila (Divine play.)

Beyond my expectations ( I have gone to retreats at Kripalu and came home with great expectations that never lasted.) I have learned new lessons here~~ Transformation into an older wiser woman. Most healing of all, is being on the journey with other strong, brave, and caring woman. ~ Sue

Each day we activate a Grecian Goddess Archetype, through intention, evocation, dreamwork, and a transformative YogART workshop. HER spirit will guide us through our daily practice, across the surreal landscape, and into the vibrant Greek culture.

In this transformative Retreat you will envision your goals and embody your higher calling. This Retreat will cultivate the unique capacity of the Arts to heal, awaken, manifest and transform.

In our integrative and holistic Retreat program, you will dive deep into your intra-personal transformation through Art and its magical processes. In turn you will gain access to innate wisdom that will guide you into becoming a powerful Transformative Artist and Manifestor.

We look forward to supporting, to listening, and to fostering your inner Muse!

Sacred Intimacy, Sacred Sexuality – An interactive presentation by David Deida

Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 7pm
HPNP (Health Professional, Nursing, & Pharmacy) Auditorium – University of Florida

This free presentation, sponsored by Healing With the Arts, promises to be an event not to be missed! For more information, please call 352-374-4478.

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).


For more information about David and his work, please visit

  • “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?
