Do you want to experience the most tender and beautiful parts of your soul – where you know yourself as the limitless field of love – and then share your truest self with a beloved partner?
Are you ready to release your fears, defenses, contractions, and endless striving for improvement – and relax into a delightful dance of intimate, vulnerable and blessed relationship with others and life?
Have you tired of mere techniques, practices and theories, and want the straight transmission of truth from someone who KNOWS – and can communicate that knowing straight into your heart and soul?
Then The Love Initiation has been created just for you.
It’s a chance to transform your life and relationships by turning the ultimate spiritual key, the one that opens the door to the love that you already ARE.
In doing so, you’ll learn to adore, celebrate and honor your current or future beloved, as well as release long-held resentments, pain and judgments. You’ll open to more unconditional love in ALL your relationships, even the ones you find most challenging.
And most importantly, you will love all aspects of yourself more deeply, and bless the world from that place.
The great mystics in history have all concurred that, at the core of reality, we ARE love – and not a saccharine, Hallmark-y kind of love – but something that is vast, deep, thrilling, and even wild. That love can also be a bit scary for our egos to imagine. Are we capable of becoming that generous, that magnificent, that divine?
You are, indeed, that divine.
In fact, it’s your ultimate birthright to be able to open to a powerful and rich intimacy in which you are deeply bonded with yourself, passionately unified with life, and deeply in love with others.
Opening to Your True Nature
Your true nature is to be in love – powerfully in love, passionately in love – every day. Yet, how many of us are really fulfilling this innate “calling”? Are you truly aligning your personal heart with your powerful potential to love – and then loving even more?
How often have you uttered a resounding “yes!” to being unconditionally in love with your intimate partner? Or completely forgiven their seeming flaws or shortcomings?
The master key to fulfilling your full potential in love is ultimately spiritual. It comes down to really loving ALL of your Self – and knowing yourself AS love – then bringing this truth into all of your relationships.
When you fully know yourself AS love, you stop seeking it in your partners, family and friends – and start celebrating it as the ever-present ground of all your interactions.
When you fully know yourself AS love, you stop trying to get something you are lacking, and instead, start seeing what you can give in a way that adds more delight to the world.
When you fully know yourself AS love, addictive habits, destructive patterns and the pain and suffering that may still linger from past hurts or disappointments melt away as you no longer require things outside of yourself to feel whole.
This shift into the state of real love isn’t a cognitive recognition. It’s something that happens on a cellular level.
Most of us have glimpsed this state of being, but the challenge is to embody it day-to-day.
A Unique Illuminating Guide
Ancient spiritual lineages have all concurred on the importance of an initiator – one who lives AS the truth we are seeking to become. An initiator serves to activate deeper recognitions and dormant potentials within you. Their flame lights your own candle until you burn brightly with the same fire.
As one of today’s most respected spiritual teachers who works with very advanced souls, Bill Bauman is such an initiator.
Bill Bauman embodies love, plain and simple.
His whole life has been about loving. In early adulthood, he started on a long path of embracing love’s limitless pleasures, and equally limitless pain.
Among top transformational leaders like Jack Canfield and Marci Shimoff, Bill Bauman is known as the “teacher’s teacher.” Bill Bauman helps “bigger name” spiritual teachers awaken to a fuller state of love and self-expression.
Bill Bauman is equally dedicated to supporting the informal, unrecognized leaders, like you who are crafting a new world by perfecting their own capacity for intimacy and becoming the most loving lovers they can be.
Bill Bauman does much more than speak insightful truths, as so many spiritual teachers do. Bill Bauman literally transmits a palpable energy and words of remembrance straight into your soul. When you receive them, a profound activation can take place that anchors you in the truth that you ARE love, and you are divine.
That opening is at the heart of The Love Initiation. It is not a course where you scribble lots of notes and do dozens of practices. Instead, it’s an opportunity to receive an activation of your heart and soul at the deepest level – in a field of real resonance and love.
By entering into a mystical field of loving union over the 7 modules, Bill Bauman will take you step-by-step deeper into the recognition and embodiment of yourself AS the love that you seek – a shift that will create powerful changes in every area of your relationships and life.
Under Bill Bauman’s inspiring leadership and loving guidance, you will open yourself to your heart’s remarkable magic. You’ll discover, buried deep within you, a wonderful capacity for true love. You’ll find yourself saying a fuller “yes!” to intimacy itself and, step-by-step, allowing love to take you over. You’ll let love’s mystic power work its magic within you, as it enlivens the energy of intimacy within you.
The end result of the activation of true unconditional love is a feeling of freedom and a relationship with others that is truly blessed.
About Your Love Initiation
The 7-module Love Initiation will be deeply experiential and transformational. Most of all, it’s about drinking in and becoming LOVE itself – with its awesome power and grace – and being in awe as love nurtures you, expands you, and makes you a more dynamic lover of others and of life.
As you integrate this initiation, you’ll be more free to fall in love in the sacred ways you’ve only dreamed of. You’ll be invited to dramatic personal breakthroughs – moving from protecting your heart to letting it flow; from hiding in your comfort zone to being open and vulnerable; and from feeling separate and alone to feeling bonded and one with your partner.
While The Love Initiation will focus primarily on intimacy with another person (a partner, a loved one, friends, etc.) – you can also apply what you experience and begin to embody to your relationship with yourself. Also, you need not be in an intimate relationship at this time in order to benefit strongly from this offering. Anyone who is courageous enough and willing to open to the truth of love will benefit from The Love Initiation.
This powerful, 7-module program is designed to initiate you step by step into activating a more whole, divine, loving current in your heart and your mind. The modules are based in part on the “11 Spiritual Principles for Truly Intimate Relationships” developed by Bill Bauman. By embracing and implementing these life-changing principles, you will invite love’s daring, power and beauty to fill every crevice of your humanity – so that only the purest love guides your intimate interactions in every moment.
After completing Bill Bauman’s initiation and integrating the shifts, you will:
- Deepen and heal your intimate relationships as you recognize the spiritual foundation of love that can shift the quality of your engagements
- Experience healing of any past pains and hurts from loving
- Awaken to your personal power to love – unconditionally and consistently
- Become a vessel for the love you desire – and be of true service to the world with joy and playfulness
- Dissolve your layers of conditioning that prevent you from accessing the creative love-force of the universe
- Let go of past personal and professional failures and step into the light of your unimaginable love and abundance
- Connect at a soul level with a spiritual community of like-minded people
- Know your ultimate nature, not as a concept, but an embodied daily experience
- Learn how to go beyond games, defenses and fears – to a steady, unconditional love in all your relationships
- Embrace the advanced stages of the spiritual journey
- Experience the source of infinite love and light that live in every cell of your body
- Learn how to avoid every urge or tendency to fix, heal or change your partner. Your only “job” in this relationship is to love, honor, adore and support your partner. Period!
For each module, Bill Bauman will share his teachings and transmission first, then open to a transformational space with participants, which is where the real magic ignites.
In working one-on-one with course participants in a space of loving communion, a sublime field of grace and blessing opens that works on all of our subtle resistances, distortions and fears.
This unique offering is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to take the leap that you’ve been waiting for – the grace-propelled, spiritually empowered leap into your very own heart.
To support our unique immersion in LOVE, Bill Bauman will blend and unite two unique approaches:
- The teaching approach that we all know, in which Bill will lovingly and unsparingly share his wisdom, experience and vision.
- A more miracle-oriented “grace” approach, which invokes the very power of LOVE to move you smoothly into your own state of “being fully immersed in and empowered by, love.”
Bill Bauman masterfully uses both these approaches in co-creating with you your own very special immersion and “initiation” in infinite love.
What You’ll Learn in The Love Initiation
Module 1: Welcoming Love into Your Heart (Recorded on July 8, 2014)
We start our 7-module time together by jumping full-force into LOVE, and its exquisite beauty, immense power, infinite wonder and soft grace. We’ll open our hearts, and every other facet of our human nature, to drink in love’s full presence and tender embrace.

Module 2: Letting Love Transform Your Past Hurts (Recorded on July 15, 2014)
We’ve all been hurt, often deeply or unbearably, by our daring attempts to love and be loved. In this module allow love, from its now sacred and official throne within your heart, to give you its first grace-filled gift – a true healing of that pain!
Yes, in our immersion in love, you’ll allow ourselves to open to love’s willingness and desire to put our emotional hurt and closed heart behind us, as it gives us the healing of or freedom from that pain that we’ve so longed for. As love’s “ambassador,” Bill Bauman will give voice to love’s powerful and radical transformation of your personal pain.

Module 3: Infusing Love into Your Human Depths (Recorded on July 22, 2014)
At our core, the raw power of creation fills and moves us. Our human roots are a vital source of a creative power that we so often deny or repress, simply because we subconsciously fear it. Yet, if you allow love to come alive in our fiery depths, then you will have found a true key to dynamic living and loving – the unified power of heaven and Earth, light and dark, divine and human – alive and well right in your very personal depths.
Love will fill you so fully at this “bottom of the barrel” of your personal being that your depths will unify with your heart, and your primal power will blend with your divine love. Bill Bauman will help initiate you (or help you initiate yourself, if you will) into this unified field of love and power right at the center of your humanness – in your very gut-level, sub-cellular core. From there, love can achieve not only the deep personal healing you’ve needed, but the lasting freedom you’ve been craving. From there, you can begin to love with abandon.
From this experience, you will:
- Experience love actually taking root in your human core – coming alive in your personal depths – just as it has done (though quite differently) in your heart
- Witness love absorbing your primal, earthy power into its graceful embrace, transforming it into love-filled power and integrated “life force”
- Notice how your personal love and power behave once the “pull-and-tug” between them is lessened, once they have become a now unified force within you
- Have a radically new understanding of your primal power, and even have a loving relationship with this often misunderstood quality of your humanness
- Grasp and own your personal power in fresh ways, simply because you no longer experience it as separate from your love, or dangerous to your well-being
Module 4: Allowing Love to Take Dominion in You (Recorded on July 29, 2014)
With love now living in your heart, continually healing your pain and alive in your core, you’re ready to take the next big leap – saying a powerful “yes!” to love’s invitation to become YOU ever more fully! In this module, we all literally invite love to take us over – not in a hostile or controlling way, but in a loving, intimate, bonding, self-empowering way.
In this module, we will actually “give ourselves to love” (as the famous song has been imploring us to do), “let go and let love”, and let your identity become love itself. With Bill’s and our group’s support, you can now become the love we were born to be. How glorious!
From this experience, you will:
- Give yourself to love, become love, allow love to take over your every process, and invite love to awaken you in every way
- Allow love to re-create you anew, from the bottom up and from the top down – creating, for example, new neural pathways in your brain, innovative energetic breakthroughs in your magnetic field, and fresh openings in your love-prone heart
- Experience a “different feeling” personal strength – one that gives you the power and confidence to love more boldly, and more unconditionally
- Understand what it is like to be a human being taken over by love – to experience yourself as love, first and foremost – then to perceive your humanness as a natural extension of that love
- Become the human being you were born to be – a true “love child” of creation, with a calling to spread love generously within yourself, and unconditionally all around you

Yes, you’re ready to love someone else – or whatever aspect(s) of life call you – fully. You’re ready to become truly intimate – to step out beyond your earlier comfort zone, and experience love’s magic in action.
With the grace-filled blessing of this session, you’ll find yourself empowered to love without reserve, to love with confidence, and to love with your whole being. What a blessing!
From this experience, you will:

Module 6: Taking the Leap: Stepping Boldly into Unconditional Intimacy (Recorded on August 12, 2014)
Unconditionality! It’s now your time to embrace this most desirable quality of love, this most noble of ideals. No matter how problematic your previous experiences of love may have been, and no matter how loving may have hurt you in the past, infinite love is ready to give you its most coveted gift – unconditional love.
Your personal ego, now ready to part with its pains and wants, will give way to the joy of selfless love. Even if your personal need to be fully loved hasn’t been fulfilled, love will transform that need into its next level of fulfillment – unconditional love. Initiated into love’s unconditionality, you can now experience intimacy – with yourself, your partner and everything – in a truly joyous way. You’ve now stepped boldly into love’s ultimate gift.
From this experience, you will:
- Think unconditionality, feel unconditionality and express unconditionality

- Become your own source of loving – from your unconditionally loving heart
Module 7: Making Your Whole Life About Expressing Love’s Blessings (Recorded on August 19, 2014)
Love is simply hardwired to bless. It is naturally primed to splash itself around everywhere with its unlimited blessings. Its very nature and purpose are to bless you and all of us, over and over, from morning to night – every minute of every day. Love has no choice but, you guessed it, to love: unconditionally, with grace, with intimate feeling and compassion, with true forgiveness and power.
Love, left to its own devices, will heal us – empowering us and awakening us in every way we allow. Now that you have been initiated into love itself, you will embrace this bigger identity and role: “I am love and I am the expresser of love’s gifts!” You will begin to dispense love’s blessings everywhere you roam in your life. Yes, with this new “calling,” you will have become the very love you’ve been seeking.
From this experience, you will:
- Claim, own and enjoy your expanded identity as love’s emissary of blessings
- Experience the power of love’s intimacy-oriented blessing: to create miracles, remove obstacles and/or re-enliven a relationship
- Create your own life anew – both personally and in your intimate relationships – as a pro-active expresser of love’s blessings
- Find personal fulfillment at a whole new level of living – not primarily as a taker or receiver of love’s gifts, but as a giver and transmitter of them
- Center your life and relationship(s) on pure, unconditional and powerful love as you have never done before
