"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 "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 A Brief History of Everything "David 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 "David Deida's teachings on this central human concern, sexuality, emanate from a deeply trustworthy source. He has undergone his own rigorous training and practice. And like Zen, the fruition of David's work is openness, compassion, and love." --Genpo Roshi, author of The Eye Never Sleeps "Wild Nights is a radically effective work that can arouse a shift of consciousness in a way that knocks on the doors of Liberation." --Gabriel Cousens, M.D., author of Spiritual Nutrition and the Rainbow Diet
