Copenhagen Tantra Festival 2012 Interveiw - part 1 and part 2



Public Talks on numerous topics, below are a few of his presentations:

Relationships of Love, Power and Freedom

What does it mean to live in Love and in Power and in Freedom?   Relationships can offer a powerful path of evolution and are a source of our greatest joy and heartbreak.

We are in relationship with everything and everyone, all of the time.  Where does relationship start and what are the foundations of a healthy relationship?  How do we discern the appropriateness and true nature of each relationship?

As a single person, a couple, a group, family, or a business, we will explore how to keep relationships fluid and healthy. How you can gracefully allow them to evolve into a more accurate expression of success, love and truth.

Take the opportunity to see how to better hold the point of love for yourself and others and how to expand your relations in depth, love, magic and power. Living as a fully integrated adult will change the way you live in relationships forever.


Extraordinary Life / Exploring our Divine Human Potential

With intent and awareness we arrive in a place of wholeness where we embrace, appreciate, and celebrate life force energy fully and completely.  We can live free of limiting beliefs, judgments, and telepathic agreements and a addicted life experience. On the Spiritual/Sexual Shamanic path, everything in life becomes a meditation and a prayer. We learn to feel, live, flow and let go into the oneness that is Divine Love.  A spirituality successful person experiences peak performance and human development designed for productivity, longevity and life fulfilment.

When we are able to honour, trust, communicate, improve our skills as a lover, and focus our mind and body in the appropriate ways, a whole new world of possibilities opens. Greater understanding, deeper compassion, power, bliss, ecstasy, fuller life experiences and better health are all available. Baba Dez loves to serve and support in this process of total integration. There is no substitute for divine presence."


Traversing the Cutting Edge of Spiritual Sexual Shamanism

Baba Dez shares foundational information with energetic transmissions and exercises for presencing, activation, and integration of Spiritual Sexual Energy.  We will explore ingrained cultural guilt, shame, and fear and how beliefs, judgments, and telepathic agreements can limit and control our lives.  We will realize how understanding and experiencing a conscious connection with our nervous systems can bring us all the way into living freedom and bliss. We will then deepen our ability to support ourselves, our people, and all humanity in conscious evolution.

Sex Magic - Manifesting your Deepest Desires

Baba Dez will share foundational information, tools, and support for reclaiming and activating the Emotional Body.  This is the Divine Feminine or in shamanic terms, the engine of manifestation.  Participants are then guided step by step through The Shaman Method of Sex Magic as described in his book, Sacred Sexual Healing.  This ritual can be performed at each individuals discretion; solo, with a partner, or with rotating partners puja style.  This is a fun, interesting, and interactive evening with no nudity and a strong emphasis on communicating and respecting individual boundaries and desires.   Come experience a spiritually inspiring evening of authentic intimacy, safety, and sex magic.  Namaste’


Fully Integrated Spirituality

Over the last several years more than a few prominent spiritual leaders and teachers have been reviewing with me their personal lives and practices.   With so much cultivated heart and mind consciousness the realization hits them, “There is a huge hole in my life and  teachings”.  The most ignored, denied, misunderstood or bypassed area of spiritual exploration is the territory around sex and emotion.

Concurrently, many sex positive community leaders and prominent swingers are also exploring what can bring more intensity to their activities and interaction.   With so much physical passion and embodied experience eventually the question arises that “there must be something more”

Together in this evening talk we will explore with heart and consciousness the information and practices around the topics of Conscious Evolution, Embodied Presence,  Power with Consciousness,  Sexual Integration,  Spiritual Alchemy, and Sex Magic.
In the second “Playshop” half of the evening,  at each individuals discretion; solo, with a partner, or with rotating partners puja style, we will explore with body, heart, and feeling what we discussed in the Talk.  

When we understand the importance and benefits of a Fully Integrated Spirituality, we can clearly see the next step on our path.  After all,  A spirituality successful person experiences peak performance and human development designed for productivity, longevity and life fulfilment.

Join us for a fun, interesting, and interactive evening with no nudity and a strong emphasis on communicating and respecting individual boundaries and desires.


What would love do?

Join Baba Dez and friends for an evening filed with powerful information and inspiring guided meditations. A Question and Answer forum with an exploration into Divine Inspiration.  What is the nature of Being Fully Aware,  Fully Present, and Totally Out of Control?  Join us for a thought provoking, fun, interesting, and interactive evening with no nudity and a strong emphasis on communicating and respecting individual boundaries and desires.  Toward the One.

An Enlightening Personal Encounter with Baba Dez as Recounted by a Fellow Shaman and Sacred Sexual Healer: Anyaa McAndrew M.A., L.P.C., N.C.C. 

It was a weekend in late April and Atlanta was in full glorious bloom. My friend and priestess sister, Cheri, was bringing Dez, a Daka whom she’d been raving about for months, to teach a Tantra seminar on the inner union of feminine and masculine. It was certainly a topic that sparked my interest, and by some miracle it was a weekend I was not facilitating a circle. I had recently felt called to teach Tantra to women, and I felt that this seminar would be important to my own work, so I signed up. 

The unlikely group that assembled for the weekend showed up in fits and starts between Friday night and Saturday morning: four young men in their early to late 20s, two young priestesses from my circles, a young Tantrika priestess “wannabe,” an older woman who found my website, two high priestesses from other circles—one a Dakini and one an adult entertainer—and a male healer friend of my priestess sister, Cheri. I wondered what I could learn with this mostly beginners group of students, but I was open to let go of self-image and see what might happen. 

I found myself on Friday night with an interesting physical symptom. The lymph gland on the left side of my throat had been swelling up for the past three days. I had spent the day before with a group of friends. The ceremony we all co-created together moved us into a huge space of love, and I had simply assumed that the swollen gland was somehow a part of my process. But now, listening to Dez talk about the inner masculine and feminine, I was suspecting something additional. My feminine was in crisis and I was clueless about what she wanted to communicate. Our homework was to self-pleasure as a man, and then as a woman. 

I was surprised at my response to Dez. In addition to being an absolutely mesmerizing man, he was speaking in a language and from a place I recognized immediately. The work he had done to come to his truth was the same work I had done on Maui many years ago with the same teachers. Dez had integrated Tantra with the emotional body, a piece that is missing from most Tantra teachings. He also immediately acknowledged me for the work I was doing with the priestess process and making space for the feminine, which IS the emotional body. Explosions of aliveness and remembering brought me to full presence. I was ready for this weekend to unfold! 

My night became a healing crisis. I managed the homework and enjoyed the feelings and sensations of holding my testicles and lingam as a male, and my breasts as a female. But the pain in my swollen left gland was getting worse, and aching even when I didn’t swallow. I knew if I did not reverse what was happening I would be sick all weekend. I got out my homeopathic remedies and went to work. I slept fitfully and every two hours got up to do another round. I noticed an emotional pattern that unfolded with the remedies that I downed: first self-doubt, then struggle and fight, then influence from outside forces, then impatience, then mental chatter. It read like the pattern of my life in relationships with men! I finally fell into a deep sleep and had a dream. There were two sets of jewels. One set could be worn but the other set had to be wrapped in tissue paper and kept in the back room. I knew intuitively that this was my inner feminine. Part of her was fragile and hidden. She was telling me that it was time for all of her to come out to be worn. The swollen gland softened and the pain dissipated over the next several hours.

Saturday was more intense as we looked at the truth of present-day relationships and their forms: how to create new forms, how to actually become our own inner masculine and feminine, sacred spot work, all blended artfully with honoring mind, emotions, body and heart. My conversations with Dez were sweet and honest. By the end of the day I found myself considering the benefits of doing an individual session with him. The homework was to honor the feminine, preferably in sacred spot work with a partner. Dez asked all of the single men who wanted to work with a partner to stay and be chosen by a single woman, and he himself sat down to be chosen! In a bit of confusion, I walked over to him and asked if he would like to create a private session with me. He seemed happy to oblige. After a brief stop for a change of clothes for him, we headed to my apartment, listening to music and talking Nonstop.

We ate some dinner on the swing in front of the little lake in my back yard as I told a little of my story and set intention for our session. We saw a water moccasin swim by and wondered at the symbolism. I spoke of how I was completing the relationship with Jim, my ex-husband, as lover and friend, but that the Goddess has told me to wait for a new lover. I spoke of the swollen gland that was finally beginning to retreat, and what it had meant as a protection for my feminine. 

I spoke of my father wounds and my history with men. I spoke of wanting a deeper connection with my feminine and how the feminine is my path to enlightenment through my own surrender, my work with women and the Goddess. I heard some of his story and felt our kinship and soul connection. He looked at me through the darkening twilight and told me that he wanted me to know he truly “saw” who I was and how much work I had done and was honored that I had chosen him. My expectancy was building as my attraction to this man was fully confirmed. It had been so long since I truly felt fully met by a man of heart, and I silently thanked the Goddess for her timing! 

I could not help but run Dez’s astrology chart before we moved on, and quickly saw that his Moon, Sun, Mercury and Venus were exactly the same as my ex-husband, Jim. We moved to the hot tub and more conversation. It was then that I saw Dez reveal more of his own inner woman, as he told stories and shape-shifted back and forth between masculine and feminine. He told me he felt that our meeting was, in part, his own initiation as a priestess with me. I was in awe of this man’s inner development. It slowly began to dawn on me that more was at work here in the archetypal realms, and exactly what it all meant was yet to be revealed. 

We finally began our sacred spot work/play around 10 pm as we relaxed into an easy erotic open space on my bed. When I unveiled and lay before him, Dez declared me beautiful and began to move his hands on my thighs and belly and breasts in graceful massaging strokes. He chose spicy oil that had been formulated for me by a Hispanic Kansas City Magdalene priestess. We broke into giggles as the oil began to heat up our bodies and genitals! The attraction between us was natural and relaxed and somehow we both knew this was more than a sexual healing session. 

Then Dez laid his long lean body behind and next to me and gently moved me into a guided journey back in time before my conception. He spoke of conscious parents preparing for me and calling me in, and a father who was always there for me. These were my Godparents in another dimension, and they loved me unconditionally. 

Then asking my permission to enter, Dez moved his long fingers into me. He spoke of his love for the yoni and exclaimed his arousal at my inner landscape. My body responded to his periodic declarations of “Oh Goddess” and I moved as an instrument being played by his skillful hands. I rode the waves of pleasure while he probed the interior territory of my yoni. He made mudra connections with the swollen gland, commanding that what no longer served me was free to go while new space opened for the creation of my dreams.

Gradually it became clear that both of us wanted more as we moved into deep kisses and soulful eye gazing. He suckled my breasts and moved his long erect lingam around my belly and the lips of my yoni. It was fully clear to me that I was open to this beautiful God entering every cell of me, but from my own inner masculine. I stopped and asked if this was where he also wanted to go. In one seamless agreement we asked the appropriate questions, decided about protection, and chose that we would not only be lovers, but that he would stay the night with me. I savored every inch of him entering me. Oh Goddess, it had been so long since I enjoyed a man who fit so well! 

We declared ourselves as soul friends, we laughed and moaned and flowed in delicious ecstasy. At some point he declared that he was seeding my new masculine within me and I understood. The Goddess asked me to wait until this very moment when a man of heart, one who held true space for the feminine by embodying his own feminine, could show up for me. 

We loved until very late, and then again in the morning, knowing our time together was short. I reluctantly pulled away to shower and get him to the Tantra workshop on time. He slept a little longer while I enjoyed seeing his beautiful brown body against my white sheets. 

I understand why the swollen gland on my left side happened. The feminine on this planet and in my own being had been far from honored, which had resulted in blocked throat chakra. But now, there was a new possibility as the Sacred Masculine stepped forward to cheer on the returning Sacred Feminine, within and without. 

Today my heart is smiling as I carry this new seed in my womb. My masculine is standing a little taller and theworld seems a little safer for my feminine, who feels she is truly blessed with a precious gift from the Goddess. She feels she can now wear those jewels that have been in the back room.
