"Wild Nights cuts through the illusions of modern spirituality into the depth of life before God. Impure, soaked with all bodily liquids, pierced by clear recognition of death, wide opened with the power of love―living as love―in any moment of daily life. If you do not choose to be a hermit, if you want to practice awakening within relationships, in the realm where sex and death are such powerful momentums―you'd better read this book, and not only once."―Rabbi Ohad Ezrahi, author of Paths of Empowerment


Meet Mykonos, both scurrilous madman and the voice of truth. Wild Nights presents David Deida's remarkable account of his days with the unconventional teacher who revealed to him the deeper wisdom of the erotic path to the divine.

From our very first encounter to the "burden of bliss" that is his parting gift, Mykonos challenges our understanding of what makes a spiritual life. Brutally candid, he offers his teaching to anyone ready to listen, with an uncanny ability to see into the hearts and minds of his students better than they can their own.

Charged with provocative scenes of unbridled passion and play, Wild Nights explodes with spiritual insights into our choice to "open as love, or close and suffer"; yogic sexual techniques including circular breathing and expanding feeling beyond the self and into the heart of a lover; and why, for some, full sexual expression is a requirement of spiritual maturation.

For its honest depiction of the spiritual teacher and student relationship―and the questions it demands we ask about our own sexuality―Wild Nights proclaims David Deida a guiding light in the often cloudy realm of sex and spirit.

Review:

"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
 

"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
