...
David Deida provides the clearest explanation from a relationship perspective that I have seen. He brings excellent insights on this, that will help men in relationships in particular to strengthen their relationships with an improved mindset.
...
David Deida provides extremely healthy, yet effective, mindsets for relationship building and maintenance. This contrasts from many other relationship skills which tend to be effective for the man to keep the woman, but less positive, in that the woman ends up damaged or negatively impacted by the relationship. Ultimately this is also not good for the guy, either.
David Deida sets a very positive long term foundation for women in your life, and for them to benefit positively from that relationship.
...
David Deida provides provocative insights into your deeper inner game, and how it relates to relationships with women. This is most helpful for guys who want to be more satisfied with their love life - becoming happy with your love life and female relationships takes a lot more than 'just getting laid a lot'.
This is a typical issue that guys who have studied dating advice and are getting a lot of success come up against. If you have got success, through getting laid, or getting girlfriends and you still aren't happier, it is time for you to look harder at your inner game.
David Deida comes back to address the type of women that are relevant to you, why and how to go about selecting the ones to fit your lifestyle and needs throughout the book. In particular, he provides some excellent insights into why and how to go about adjusting the role of women in your life to make it more fulfilling. This is 'Groundbreaking' and a must read for those who are experienced.
Caveat - Some Misleading Advice for Attracting Women at First In some sections where David Deida discusses the first steps of attracting a woman, his advice is not good - misleading and of an inferior mindset. In Part Four - What Women Really Want - Choose a Woman Who Chooses You, he recommends an inferior approach that will not help you to improve the quality of women you bring into your life. What he says with respect to practical steps towards starting a relationship with a woman should be taken with a large grain of salt.
For instance, he advises 'asking your friends or even her friends' about a girl's attraction to you, to provide a guide as to what to do. The majority of guys don't have a good understanding of women, and starting the subject with her friends would completely sabotage your chances.
Challenging to Implement This is not a practical how-to manual, like some other products. There are no techniques discussed. David Deida explains how relationships between men and women work, and provides a lot of insight into what works and what doesn't. But the reader will have to take this knowledge, assimilate it and apply it through his own understanding.
...
David Deida explores the important issues in men's lives - from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality - to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom. The book includes advice on empowering skills and body practices.
"It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart," writes David Deida.
...
David Deida
...
David Deida writes an amazing book and elegantly describes the correct behaviors for living a powerful life with woman. He describes the feminine attribute of testing a man to see if he is worthy to a high degree. This is one of the few books and he is one of the few teachers that really understands women to this degree. A must have and constant companion for all men.
The Bad David often references spiritual concepts that may not make sense to the lay person, although this doesn't matter as it doesn't interfere with the understandings.
...
I have been in the community for awhile but have never seen anyone explain the mind of a woman as succintly as David Deida does here. His reasons as to why women test men and the way to handle them are particularly insightful.
David Deida and the Seduction Community Exposed
www.deidaexposed.com, 22 Jan 2010 [cached]
Since the time of this posting there has been widespread concern with David Deida's involvement with the Seduction Community.
While many of the pickup and seduction instructors have jumped on the band wagon using the universal principals of the Deida work, yet many still run Seduction Boot Camps charging up to $3,000 dollars teaching men how to pick up and seduce. Other sites sell E-Books with instructions on the seduction techniques. These tactics are manipulative and have consequences for both men and women.
David Deida's events are now produced by the person named in this site and no announcements are ever made at his workshops that some of the participants in these workshops may have come from marketing to subscribers of these seduction websites.
...
David Deida and his ties to the seduction community!
...
David Deida has become involved with a group of men who are associated with the "art" of Picking up and Seducing of women. They call themselves Pick-up artists or PUAs for short. If you google PUAs, the details are explicit. The PUA community has now added "the Deida" work to their repertoire inspired by a well paid appearance he made as the main presenter at a conference sponsored by Natural Seducers held in Toronto last June. Since David's appearance, many other PUA sites have now added his work as a reference for how to pick up and seduce women. Some are now calling me for advice and recommendations. Needless to say, I am not interested in working with them.
I believe Deida's involvement with the PUAs not only compromises his work, but actually puts participants in harm's way, especially women.
David Deida and the Seduction Community
David Deida has gone down a very slippery slope. Last summer, he made a choice to attend Natural Seducers Superior Man seminar. His most popular book is called The Way of the Superior Man.
...
David Deida not only participated as the headline presenter for the Toronto event, but now has an individual producing his West Coast events who has a website called Net2Bed (May 2008) . His name is Adam Gilad.
...
Now David is even mentioning him by name in his promotional emails.
...
In October, Gilad produced the Los Angeles event for David Deida.
...
We received reports that David did not announce his workshop rules at the Seattle workshop. This is the first time we are hearing that he has dropped these rules. In my opinion, he's doing so to give the PUAs, who are paying $1000 for a weekend to attend, an opportunity to practice what they learn. I believe David Deida is no longer committed to creating a safe environment in the midst of his intense psycho-sexual processes. Whatever reason he may come up with for his failure to create a safe environment especially for women, the facts speak for themselves.
Having worked with David consistently from 2002 to 2006, his workshops always had more women than men.
...
With Net2Bed emails that have the subject headings like - David Deida and 75 women, it's no wonder the PUA (Pick-up Artist) wannabes are now enrolling in David's seminars.
...
Also on the evidence page is a copy of the Natural Seducers site from June 2007 where David Deida is listed as their partner. David Deida and Natural Seducers as partners? Partners in what you might ask!
If David Deida is allowed to continue his work and stay involved with the PUA community, he places men and women especially, at risk. I mention men as well because often women who are in relationships attend David's workshops with the intent of bringing back what they learn to their male partners. What man anywhere would want his female partner attending a workshop with participants seeking to improve their seduction skills?
Like Gilad, look for David Deida to suggest that his involvement with the PUAs is a noble effort to change the direction of that community. Perhaps he may reach a few, but with no infrastructure, no follow-up and no integration for his work, any reformed PUAs would quickly return to the goal of "the Game. I believe David Deida is more concerned with money than maintaining and improving the quality of his work and the participants who attend. Yes, he has reached many people to see intimacy as a spiritual practice and personally, I am forever changed by the work, but this reckless pursuit of a community of seduction aficionados is not the game that respects the emerging spiritual community, the likes of who attend workshops at major holistic centers.
If you follow the web of associations to other sites connected to www.NaturalSeducers.com listing David Deida as their partner, you will find an endless array of information that denigrates and degrades women. There is nowhere where David Deida has revealed a plan to bring enlightened sex to the PUAs and I believe he is setting himself up to cash in on seduction boot camps that charge up to $3000 per weekend. Even the $2,750 he charges for his 7-day intensives at Omega and Kripalu doesn't seem like a great deal given what men half his age are raking in from the PUA wannabes.
Furthermore, from calls and emails I have received over the years, David's workshops and intensives are leaving more scars than healing for some participants. At the last workshop I attended in 2006 as an assistant, David neglected to announce the workshop rules which are designed to create a safe container for the participants. I later emailed him that in neglecting to do so, several participants engaged in sexual activity during the seminar and as a result, a woman was hounded for months by a man she met at the workshop. David emailed me back thanking me for pointing this out to him.
Let Your Voice be Heard
Now is the time to do you homework and to speak out. Speak out to any group as to why they would sponsor David Deida knowing what is going on. Speak out and demand accountability. Ask David why he is involved with the PUA community. Ask him what will safeguard the women who attend his workshops and intensives. Needless to say, he has no phone number on his website but his email contact addresses are:
ddeida@tampabay.rr.com david_deida@csi.com dd@sugarloaf.net
Call David on his "game. Ask the venues that bring him in if the cache of having a teacher of spiritual sexuality to enliven their schedule is worth the risk of placing their participants in harm's way? Everyone knows sex sells, but prior knowledge of irresponsible behavior is not worth the risk of a tragic occurrence and the negative publicity that follows.
With all the sexual perversion in the world today, I thought David Deida was a shining star of love and respect, but that does not seem to be the case. I am deeply saddened to have to have brought to the public's attention, David's failure to live up to the noble ideals of which he writes. We would expect that the principles that he expounds to be fully embodied in his actions and associations, especially where it matters most with regards to the safety of the women in his workshops.
I believe that love, understanding and happiness are our natural state. But unconsciously, we habitually decide on lesser ways of being. Anyone in the position of influence such as David Deida must be called upon to answer to his community.
...
I sincerely hope you can reach David Deida and his sponsors and insist that he break ALL ties with the PUA / seduction community.

Click on to www.NaturalSeducers.com where David Deida was the featured presenter in June 2007. Go the bottom of the page , where you will see David Deida listed as a partner with Natural Seducers. Draw your own conclusions. I sent them an email to remove my website as they put it up without my permission and I wanted no association with the PUA community. I cc'd a copy of that letter to David Deida and recommended he also ask to be removed. He has not done so.
The Natural Seducer's are now marketing their workshop with David Deida in the form of a CD set for the PUA community.
This is a screen capture of an advertisement that is now on Natural Seducers. While the interviews with the men who attended the seminar would seem to suggest that they have embraced a kinder and gentler style of picking up women, the advertisement below clearly indicates that it was designed to use "Superior Man" techniques to be a better pick up and seduction artist. And just the fact that David Deida is appearing with Sean Messenger is evidence that David is going where the money is, the big money. And just the fact that David Deida is appearing with Sean Messenger is evidence that David is going where the money is, the big money.

It is run by Adam Gilad AKA Grant Adams, who is currently producing David Deida's events on the West Coast.
Here is an example of an onslaught of emails that Adam Gilad AKA Grant Adams sent out to subscribers of his email list on www.Net2Bed.com to fill the San Francisco David Deida event. This is the current state of affairs with the events for David Deida.
In my opinion, he is not only permitting people who may turn out to be from a pool of prowlers to attend his events, he is allowing his producer to actively advertise to them.
Shame on you, David Deida, who do you think Gilad is going after with subject headings like "Learn Directly from David Deida (And 75 Women)?"
...
Subject: [N2B] Learn Directly From David Deida (And 75 Women)
...
One name that KEPT popping up was David Deida . His ideas on masculine strength, direction, and honing our unique ability to guide a woman out of her fear, mistrust and emotional bounds into new landscapes of passion, trust, bliss, openness, lightness, possibility and - my personal favorite - sexual ecstasy -- have UTTERLY CHANGED my life, and the lives of most of the teachers at the Rapport Event.
...
Why? Because Deida speaks a language that few others do.
...
If you held a (pop) gun to my head and told me that I could only learn from ONE personal development and growth teacher for the rest of my life, I would choose David Deida in a heartbeat. That's why I'm so committed to be able to share his teachings with you every chance I get.
In less than an hour, registration for David Deida's San Francisco workshop will open. Deida's workshops are LEGENDARY and always sell out quickly, due to his firm policy on allowing only (75) men and (75) women at each event.
...
Below is an email from a woman, who's contact with David in his workshop left her feeling worse than when she arrived.
...
Inasmuch as I value the principles Deida teaches, I was extremely disappointed by the way he treated participants in his workshops. I attended his workshops to experience healing but found him to be so degrading that I had to spend months in therapy healing the wounds that were triggered.
...
Deida was uncompassionate and even threatened to throw me out of the workshop if I missed any of the sessions to seek medical attention.
I hope your training with him has not desensitized you to these very important issues and that you are more skilled in creating a safe environment for learning, awareness, and healing. I will come to your next public presentation because the work is very important to me, but please know that I am wary due to my traumatic experiences with Deida.
Thank you,
David Deida has an endless stream of burnt business bridges.
...
In the age of dot-com, one might wonder why David uses Deida.info? His former publishers have ownership of Deida.com, Deida.net and Deida.org as well as DavidDeida.com, DavidDeida.net and DavidDeida.org. Why wouldn't David Deida stake claim to the right to use his pen-name? David has wrecked and/or sabotaged relationships with many people with whom he's had business dealings.
...
David cancelled the event and claimed it was cancelled by the producer, me.

David Deida and the Seduction Community
...
This attempt to "expose" David Deida is ridiculous and twisted. I've been to several of Deida's intensives, and the container is always safe. I have nothing but the greatest respect for Deida's moral standards. We should all aspire to that level of integrity. Many people go through huge change in the wake of workshops with Deida. It's hard and there's pain involved, but the rewards are massive. I owe the complete turnaround of my life to David Deida's willingness to give his gifts.
This whole "scandal" seems to be more a case of the PUA community trying to associate themselves with Deida than the other way around. This website is light on facts and heavy on accusations from someone who is no longer even a part of the Deida community.
I hope Deida does many more things in association with the PUA community. His mere presence there could make major changes for the better in the hearts of men all over the world. I wish him luck and I would support him to the death.
Finally, as a woman, I'd like to say that some idiot with a pick-up line could not possibly threaten me, especially with the heart skills I've gained through work with Deida.
...
It is an honor even to be in the same room with David Deida.
...
By David joining up with the PickUp Trainers, he is insuring that the students get an even better rounding of their INNER Game Skills and be better Men. (When people think of a pickup artist they normally think of the Natural Bad Boy who is bad or irresponsible, or untrustworthy).
...
**I made numerous attempts to discuss this with Deida by phone and email.
...
Go fuck yourself with your outlandish bullshit website...Why do you give a fuck about obsessing over David D. The man is a genius and the seduction community has enriched my life beyond your little preconceived notions and polluted mind. David is amazing and your a pathetic individual! I feel sorry for you brother.

You are sadly mistaken. Probably a bit arrogant as well.
I have been involved in the groups with which Deida is now involved.

If you really could see Deida for who he is, you would know that he is not the kind of person that would sell out.

To cut them off from the work of someone like David would be to limit their learning options to only the very PUA teachers you are condemning.

I'm sorry, I don't buy it. You may think he's "sold out," but after looking at one site you referenced, I don't see enough of a problem to continue reading. I met him, and unless he's changed drastically, I think he probably knows exactly what he's doing and is probably helping others greatly.

Have you ever thought about the benefits and positive influence that David may have on these seduction and PUA guys?

I am curious, then, as to why you continue to use Mr. Deida's name in your own promotional work.

I am going to remove myself from your mailing list. This is ridiculous. David Deida has been nothing but a positive influence in my life and the lives of dozens of women friends.

I was introduced to the work of Deida through Ken Wilber's Intergral Institute, several years ago.
While I have never attended any of the seminars in question, I have read every book written by Deida, and read everything I could find online, Including all the material on Michael Jascz's DeidaCentral and listen to Adam Gilad's Podcasts on Personal Life Media.
...
But even Deida recognizes that "There's a feminine part of me, too, or I wouldn't be standing here tonight speaking with you."
...
ad hominem attacks you have made on Adam Gilad, and David Deida.

The Ideas of Deida's are important, and need to be heard, even though they are not the Holy Grail.
