Banyen's Description: 

“Can you feel the Great One everywhere, between your legs, filling your body, breaking your heart wide open?... Only this Great One, always love, always making love. The Great One is Fuck! There, have I said it? Have I gone too far? There is only the Great One, even in all our seeming twoness.”

Meet Mykonos: scurrilous madman—and voice of truth. Wild Nights is David Deida’s pithy account of his days with this unconventional teacher who revealed to him the deeper wisdom of the erotic path to the divine. Cocky, passionate, and penetrating (coarse language and all), this book-length narrative bristles with insights, similar in some ways to Carlos Castaneda’s works.

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 “under-the-covers” depiction of a  spiritual teacher and student relationship—and the questions it demands we ask about our own sexuality—Wild Nights reaffirms Deida’s guiding light in the often cloudy realm of sex and spirit.

“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.” —Surya Das, author of  Awakening the Buddha Within

Among David Deida’s other works are Intimate Communion and Blue Truth.
