"My temple experiences have been mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically transformational. I highly
recommend a massage and attunement from Amalia. She is a world-class therapist, healer and practitioner. The staff
at the Temple are very friendly and helpful. There are many fantastic workshops to take in addition to the
shamanic land journeying and vortex tours. Sedona Temple is one of my favorite places on the planet. AAAAA "
"Having spent a month in residence at the Sedona Temple I would like to say that it was a time of profound beauty
and sweet friendship. It is a perfect place to celebrate creative abundance and spiritual solace. I sincerely wish
to thank Desert, Juniper, and the Temple team for your impeccable care and loving attention.
I felt remarkably pampered and luxuriously cared for every minute of my stay. I felt welcomed and supported from
the moment I stepped through your lovely doors. The place is breathtaking. It is tranquil, serene, friendly, and
calm. I have been to many venues over the last twenty years, and I believe the vision made manifest at the Sedona
Temple deserves special mention as one of the finest places I have practiced and worked within.
First, the spaciousness and aesthetic attention within the private and communal spaces are impeccably designed to
ensure guests can either relax privately or have a great time together as a group. From the open kitchen, to the
Watsu, Jacuzzi, and treatment rooms- everything is provided to bring about feelings of elegance, freedom and
peace. Most importantly however, it is the vision of the Temple that makes it feel especially inviting.
Because Desert (Baba Dez) has created the Sedona Temple especially for the sexual arts, not only does one feel
'tolerated' by the place, one actually feels nudged to explore and discover themselves more deeply. I cannot say
enough about how the spiritual intent of the Temple provided us the tangible support, safety and profound
acceptance needed for the practices of spiritual sexuality.”
"Thanks so much for the healing time we shared before you headed out. Your loving presence was a gift to both
witness and experience. Your divine masculine is indeed divine -- and you have an amazing ability to create a warm
and safe place within which I could immediately feel a sense of trust and budding potential.
As you saw, I could have cuddled into that embrace for a very, very long time. I sincerely appreciated your
willingness to hold me, as well as to remind me that I can create that circle of protection for myself and those I
care about. It makes me smile to think of you saying......."and what do you want now"....."and how about
now"......"and now".....you sure called it on that one. I appreciate it more than I can say.
The past few days have been incredibly joyous -- frequently finding myself cheering YES to the sky - cooking for
people I love, playing with rainbow bubbles, flying a kite. Trying my best to breathe into that crack in the armor
- and let some light in/out! In learning new things, I often wonder what theoretical concepts would look like in
real life. That’s why I really enjoy working with you. You walk your talk - and it’s clear as day what it looks
like in real life. Bless you, Dez and the love/fire that you and the temple are feeding.”
"The nature of my work requires me to spend huge amounts of time in candle-lit chambers in service with the
hundreds of welcomed strangers that I receive each year. The Daka/Dakini Conference gives a much needed balance to
my life force, I can step out of my beautiful but isolated world into a ready-made realm of peers, expert teachers
and new friends.
The conference provides, above all, a loving network for people who passionately care about this frequently
misunderstood profession of ours. Hafiz, the great Sufi poet writes, "Out of a great need, we are all holding
hands, and climbing. Not loving is a kind of letting go. Listen! It is far too dangerous for that."
We are change agents in a world which frequently attacks what it does not understand. For sexual healers who wish
to 'hold hands and climb' together, here is a place, these are your people. To attend is a strong act of self
pleasuring and joyful play, not to mention amplification of your professional power and presence. Serve yourself
“The powerful reverberations from the Sedona Conference continue to be felt in my life. Thank you for everything
it took to create the powerful and playful conference space. You are truly serving so many at the highest level.”
“About the May intensive in Sedona. Thanks to my experience with you both at Sedona, I now embrace myself as a
sacred sexual healer at a much deeper level. The energy of the red rock helped me call in and embody my Divine
He is no longer an elusive external vision of what could be for me some day. He is my internalized Beloved,
finally at home in the temple of my beautiful body. His powerful presence allows my feminine to move more freely
into her full expression of love. Deep heartful thanks for your presence, love and wisdom.
As teachers who have walked before me, I gratefully received your guidance and support; and I extend my hand to
those on my path reaching out to me. Hearts open hearts that open hearts. We connect, smile, love, breathe thanks
to our precious bodies.”
"I have been thinking and feeling a lot after yesterday. That experience opened my mind and my body in a way I had
never before imagined. I loved it, and am feeling very grateful for you...for your guidance, your openness, and
your grace. I also want to say that there were some communication pieces during and after our session yesterday
that really moved me.
You expressing to me how open you were to me, and that I did a good job...it had me truly get it what it is like
as a man to experience the feminine being receptive and open and how magnetic that is, and how rewarding it is as
a man to hear when I/he has done well in whatever service he has given or rendered.
Those communication pieces were all theory to me before, and I have found them so beneficial and wonderful in my
relationships - to express acknowledgment and approval and openness...but to really get it in my body what that
giving is like and how it feels to hear those things...I find my heart so open and compassionate for men. I just
wanted to drop you a line and tell you thank you and how moved I am by you and your guidance.”
"I just finished reading the transcript of your interview Shamanic Sacred Union: Unifying Sex, Heart, Body Mind
with Francesca Gentile. What a powerful interview which came at a time where I have struggled to really understand
much of what you covered in your interview. I wanted to write to thank you for this beautiful gift that you gave
to me today without even knowing it!
I have been quite drawn to tantra for some time and do tantric dance which has by far been the most profound work
to date that I have done for myself...that coupled with Jungian analysis which has been very helpful indeed. But
the pieces that kept eluding me that I have been railing so hard against in the relationship with my husband that
seems to have gone so awry comes so very clear to me after reading your interview.
I am deeply in gratitude to you for bringing full circle the parts that I just wasn't seeing. Its wonderful how
the universe leads us at just the right times to what we are ready for. I am feeling that at some point I will be
called to do some healing work with you and perhaps even come to your dakini training. I have felt very drawn to
this work for some time and keep coming back to it time and time again."
"Baba Dez, Two things. First your ability to allow the process to unfold and gently and almost effortlessly guide
throughout the weekend was amazing to witness.
Second. The puja experience/meditation at the end of the event was one of the most profound experiences of my
life. There were issues that came up for me that had gone unresolved for lifetimes. And there is a sense of
clarity and resolve with me now that was not there before this event.
Life changing is not too strong a description. For this I am truly grateful. Love and Peace..."
"I was and am truly touched, awed and inspired by your impeccability. Such grace and agility on all levels...truly
a joy to experience and witness. I have been blessed to have met some truly inspiring people in my time and you
are among them. You seem to personify an uncommonly graceful and seamless integration of cultural and spiritual
life. I have huge respect for your integrity and the work that you do.
I have the sense of having been "seen" and to have seen my self being seen. It was/is a pleasure.... and to speak
of and from the "Desires" of my emotional body: I want more! I have come away from the time with you with a sense
of peace and grounding which continues to deepen. My sense is that I have yet to fully appreciate/understand some
of the experience consciously. I have often reflected upon the reconstitution of paternity... the re-birthing.
That was a wonderful introduction. Thank you. The emotional rainbow...I have no recollection of seeing such
fluidity before. Such graceful transitions... sharing that was/is an enormous gift. Thank you. The concept of the
mind as the witness, and non-judgmental holder of space with the torso as the experience... that continues to
resonate... and perhaps most loudly. While integration of same may take some serious practice and deepening... I
get it. Again, I thank you. With very warm thought, sincere gratitude and deep respect... I look forward to our
"Thank you Baba, whatever words I say will never describe enough your depth, presence and compassion, the way you
embody the Sacred Masculine and Feminine, and the way you were able to be convey that to me. I want everyone I
love to do sessions with you. Your sessions are the kind of life changing experience we all long for before we
You are able to help people experience transformation in a most safe and wonderful way. I can tell that you have
cultivated in yourself the Divine Force that emanates from the Union of the Healthy Masculine and the Healthy
Feminine. You transmit this energetic-spiritual force in your sessions with so much generosity that I feel deeply
grateful for your existence, deeply inspired to have met you and I send you blessings.
The session was very healing, loving and empowering. I love your work and I highly recommend it to everyone. You
are a High Priest of Sacred Union. Your level of presence and love are healing to the body and soul beyond what
words can describe."

"Dear Dez: I know that I said 'thank you' last night. But I needed to say it TWICE!!! :-) Thank you for connecting
with me - receiving my feelings - holding the space - re experiencing with me.
It was needed - supportive - healing - beautiful. Woke up feeling connected - with a new understanding of so many
things in my own life. I know that my spirit is two juicy handfuls. Thank you for having strong arms. With
appreciation and gratitude,"
"Brothers, I've recently had the pleasure of meeting and sitting with a spiritual teacher that is a man of
integrity and wisdom. In a short time, he was able to assist me in areas of 'stuckness' that were impacting me
deeply. In the field of tantra, there are few male teachers who embody integrity as this man does.
I only promote and support those whom have done their work and I judge Baba Dez has. He has much to teach us all.
Following the movie, 'What the Bleep is it all about,' he offers a practical and workable way to manifest our
wants through his practices. As a teacher myself of these traditions, I see the benefits, especially as it is
taught by Baba Dez. Please consider attending his Nov. 4th night and I trust you will consider the whole weekend.
You can explore more of what he is about in his web site, www.babadez.com. I send this with a blessing for you
"Dear Baba Dez: Have you ever heard the term 'horse whisperer'? I feel as though I spent three hours in the
company of a 'Goddess Whisperer'. Thank you for your gentleness and strength. It was good for me to spend time
with your spirit. You took great care in sharing with me. Thank you for doing this work. Thank you for teaching
others. Thank you for being kind, loving and generous to my partner it is so good for him to be nurtured and
guided by a strong loving male spirit like you. Baba, continue on your journey - and know that your work is
Please continue to teach - and help others figure out how to bring these services to women. Women need special
help finding these services. We do not know how to look. How to find them. Reaching out to these services is a big
leap for most women. But you know that already - don't you? Build it and they will come! But figure out the sign
that will let Goddess know that you are there!!!! Many Blessings Goddess Whisperer!"
"Aloha, Baba Dez wonderful name, wonderful person I feel blessed to have been in your presence and blessed by you
sharing your knowledge. I am also becoming a better parent through tantra not only for myself but making great
impact on seekers that are waking up to be better parents for themselves and their kids. I am deeply grateful to
be part of this global transformation at this time, finding my place in all of it more and more everyday.
Thank you for being so wise and so sweet and so devoted. Heartfelt thanks full of love to you. I am glad I got to
see you for that hour, and I am curious what the continuation of our first session would bring out. I feel more
and more ready to truly step into my power. Blessings, Love, and Light thankx"
"Hi Baba, Thanks for your phone message. I'm doing great, feeling sexy and energized. Your session was a big help.
I feel you helped me open up and realize what is important to me. Thanks and good luck."
"Dear Baba Dez, Just wanted to send you a quick email to tell you what a blessing it was to meet you on Tuesday.
You are such a precious soul. My week has been pretty full and I haven't really processed our time together much
except that I know it completely validated through actual experience what I knew in my heart to be true about how
sacred love making can actually be.
Although I understand what you said about not needing anyone else to do this with, for or to me, I also feel drawn
to working with you again. I feel like I'm just learning to crawl in a way. It very much feels like the time for
this unfolding/awakening to take place for me (a little overdue actually!!) and I am so grateful that you appeared
magically at just the right time. Thank you so much for being so very sweet and gentle with me. Blessings and much
love to you."
And there you appeared:
Not exactly as I wanted you to be,
But who and what I needed,
Precisely when the shadow put its arm around me
A dark guide to places I have been
But need never go again.
Unashamedly, I take what you have to offer
So much more than my ego hopes for, or even wants.
And the shadow retreats.
Yours is a remedy both ordinary and miraculous,
Each small dose a medicine
So potent in its alchemy that the world is transformed.
Or is it I who am transformed
To see the world as it truly is?
What can I give back when I have received the world with me in it?
I lay this at your feet
That it should unendingly wrap you In my gratitude!"
"Hi Baba Dez, Thank you for sharing with me your wonderful presence I want to thank you from the deepest part of
my heart. my session with you yesterday was very special. it has opened me up in every part of myself. I am still
buzzing and processing. You are a very powerful healer, and I am glad I was able to experience your gifts and deep
love and compassion.
I really don't have the words to describe the rest of the day. I was altered, expanded. I had a strong feeling of
no limits, freedom and spaciousness. So hard to describe because it was not a concept but a very tangible feeling
in my body that I was just enjoying and none of this came into my head till 2 days later. Oh and I did notice the
next day that my heart was melting around people who normally annoy me.
Reality quickly set in with kid emergencies but my equanimity surprised me. Oh, the most important thing. For
hours after, I felt as if I were on the edge of a major shift."
"Hi Dez, How do I begin to express my gratitude for all you have taught me? "Thank you" is too ordinary....My
emotions are rich, my body alive, and my heart is so happy that all aspects of me are being heard and valued.
I find myself frequently taking deep breaths. My breath reminds me to stand tall and erect. My mind remembers that
golden lingham shooting up through my body. I consciously stretch myself taller so that my head energetically
touches the edge of the lingham's head. In other words, I feel like a lovely walking penis!
I LOVE the presence of my lingham as I saunter around in the world. I now feel open to express my feminine. At
work, men I once found loathsome now just seem like tender little boys. I want to ruffle their hair. They look at
me differently. My body feels like a gorgeous, sacred temple.
I used to think coffee was breakfast, but it no longer seems adequate. I crave collard greens and mangos. The
other night I woke-up at 3 a.m. with a burning desire to belly dance. I went on-line and signed-up for my first
class. I know a lot of "firsts" are coming my way!
As I expand into this larger being, exuding love for myself and the world, I find myself feeling sexual. My yoni
is ALIVE! I want the world to know about this teaching...this healing...this Truth. I can hardly contain myself,
my joy is just that big! I am so grateful...... Namaste."
"Baba, it was such a pleasure meeting you and being able to work with you. the experience was simply magical and
incredible. now I have a better understanding why I've been constantly seeking approvals from myself and
others...I needed to feel that I am special and loved unconditionally from birth (and even before) which was not
how I perceived my own reality to be.
However, with your help and guidance, my history has been rewritten with so much love, beauty and happiness that
there's no longer any reasons for me to carry the pain and hurt I've been carrying for so long. so I realize that
I was living in this cocoon feeling so much darkness about me yet having such dreams that are so beautiful, not
realizing that they are not just some made up dreams but the future to come...now I'm ready to come out as a
beautiful butterfly that I am, that I always knew I was... Thank you. you're amazing. Have a god-goddess day!"
"Hi Friend, I recently attended an evening event in the Boulder, Colorado area that was facilitated by a unique
and wise teacher, Baba Dez. Check out his web site; www.babadez.com.
As you know, it is rare that I recommend a teacher but I would like to introduce this man to you. In the evening I
spent with him, I was transformed into a deep healing and a release of some blocks within me. His knowledge of
spiritual, emotional and sexuality is immense and his training is thorough. It is obvious that this man practices
his teachings and lives with integrity and mission.
He is a daka in the truest sense. Others I know who attended his work were impressed as well. Baba Dez is hosting
an evening discussion called: Intimate Secrets of a Male Sexual Healer and is well worth the $25 cost. Then he is
running a workshop called the Quantum Physics of Tantra: Loving Your Way to Health, Wealth and Power. I highly
recommend you attend both. Much love to you all,"
"You spoke of the momentum that desire creates...leading into explaining the new model of my masculine energies.
In essence, we were beginning to retrain my masculine, learning to listen and hold space to the desires and
feelings of my feminine. This new found model would become my problem solver; the part of me that craves to honor
my desires; that yearns to hear them spoken; and that lives to honor.
You communicated to me on a multidimensional level ------this new, more compatible, more evolved side I could
incorporate and replace into my psyche, pushing out the old male model of impatience and harsh judgment. You
allowed me to "try it on" with incredible moments of "morphing" of our masculine and feminine energies.
This precious hands on facilitation allowed me to walk away with a profound beauty of this more compatible, loving
relationship within myself. Baba Dez, I can't imagine anything else carrying me to that point. The energy was so
elevated, your beauty so profound, your pureness of spirit so sweet, your playfulness such a delight! Thanks so
much! It was, as you would say, 'Yummy!!!' "
"Wanted to write and share with you how amazing I feel today. I awoke a huge smile filled my face and my heart. I
walked outside and took a deep breath in and out.
I could taste God in the air..a gentle sweetness.. see God in the trees...reaching their branches up high in
absolute gratitude, strength and knowing.. I could feel God in the foundation of the rich, red, moist soil. I feel
absolutely together..grounded..loved..safe..real.. I feel as though I am overflowing with joy, love, gratitude,
excitement, curiosity, wonder..etc.. In love with the sweet spot.
I want to thank you for showing and reminding me of me..turning me around to see me. I'm looking forward to
sharing more time with you thank you for being you.. I hope you're having a wonderful experience, and are meeting
amazing people. In Light,"
"Dearest Baba, I hope your journey home was delightful and you were not too exhausted!! I know I made you work
hard!! As I sit in this place of tired humility, I am in awe of you and your presence and skill as a Daka and
magnificent man and fellow human being.
I am not sure why I am trying to articulate that which can not be said.... I know in your heart you understand...
I am appreciating all the work it took for me to be in this place and appreciating my inner man who sometimes had
to drag me here!!... Thanks for helping me see my inner beloved in a way I had never imagined.
Me and my work will never be the same....thank god/goddess!! I am not sure how large your practice is but I know
many women in Atlanta who could benefit from working with you... Maybe we could put something together for an
intensive....there are over 70 priestesses in the community who have done the Priestess work...food for thought...
You are the epitome of the new Millennium man.... in my book anyway.... xxxooo Peace and love to you. You are
"Dez, I want you to know that I appreciate what you are doing. Your honor, integrity, sincerity, and respect for
the divine moves me so deeply. I have never net a man who not only speaks of such things, but actually lives them.
You are truly special and amazing. I honor "You" with gratitude and love. Thank You."
"Hi Dez! Definitely will connect with you once, maybe twice this year. I had powerful experiences resulting from
your work and Sedona. Immediately after our last session I was given very clear direction. I did exactly what came
to me and had powerful results within a couple of weeks. You are a great facilitator...a powerful healer. I'm glad
we were brought together. Blessings and Regards."
"Dez, Been thinking about you.....and I want to thank you for helping me see the way. Call it a religious
experience if you like, but I think I am the person that I am today, because of you. So thank you for my personal
growth. I appreciate you everyday. Hope you are doing well."
"I'm so thankful the universe put you on my path...I've traveled some interesting territory ...reaching a pretty
wide range of emotions...and I've grown so much through my/our experiences. I feel myself coming more and more
into my power every day...without 'that bully' needing to be present...the power feels real, lasting....you are
quite beautiful physically...and I do love your playfulness, easy smile, burning intensity... wishing you much
love and wondrous things."
"Dear Desert, I am profoundly grateful to share the planet with one who is such an inspiration to all who wish to
serve. You truly model the pure, balanced Tantric principle...coupled with a rare ability to mirror the healthy
masculine and feminine energies in utter clarity.
Our sessions opened the space to heal a fragment of self which had eluded and sabotaged some of my best efforts.
My inner landscape experienced a pivotal shift which is already yielding beautiful, positive change in all my
relationships. The serene, loving, yet dynamic approach you embody is a gift, a true joy to experience.
Spirit flows through you in the authentic, caring way you empower others. It is my honor and privilege to
encourage anyone who is committed to transformation to seek your genuinely supportive guidance. Infinite Thanks
for your Presence."
