Serving both men and women who are interested in awakening to their full human potential. We are a synergy of teachers from many lineages who have become enlivened through the nurturing, awakening, and healing of our essential sexual and spiritual energies. We have discovered that our sexual (life) energy is expanded and nourished by bringing a spiritual awareness to it.The mission of Divine Feminine-Awakened Masculine Institute is to awaken the erotic soul, to realize the integration of masculine and feminine wisdom in our lives through experiential education, sexual healing, and energy practice. The Divine Feminine (Eros) in sublime harmony with the Awakened Masculine (Logos) offers us a joyful means to awaken the power inherent in our sexual nature. As this dynamic integration emerges, we feel more connected to the cycles of the earth, to our true emotions, and to the power and sacredness of our sexuality. When we awaken the erotic soul, we experience greater aliveness, natural pleasure, and a deeper dimension of love in our relationships. This deepening of connection then radiates out to all aspects of our awareness.
I am a Spiritual Counselor and Energy Healer, Certified Tantric Healer and Reiki Master.
I serve as a Daka -Sacred Intimate specializing in Intimacy, Sacred Sexuality and Relationship.
I am a Daka-Sacred Intimate, Reiki Master, fine art photographer-videographer, Tantra educator and Cannabis Sacrament Minister (promoting the sacred use of cannabis for consciousness expansion and spiritual evolution).
I am a Daka—Sacred Intimate, Certified Tantric Healer and Reiki Master. I provide Tantric Healing and Erotic Enrichment sessions for women, men, and couples.
Tantric Healing sessions provide a safe space for letting go emotional and psychological contractions “energy knots” that inhibit your full enjoyment of life, sex and intimacy and restore one to vibrancy and fullness of experience. Erotic Enrichment sessions provide a safe and clear container for erotic exploration and sex education and are about expanding in pleasure and permission -giving one’s self greater erotic potential, enjoyment and fulfillment.
Orphaned as a teen, dove into boxing, Eastern philosophy, and dance in his search for love, purpose, and spiritual fulfillment. As an athlete, artist, and spiritual seeker, he became an erotic dancer and instructor in Japan and China, where he also studied martial arts and healing massage. After moving back to the United States, he studied Tantric disciplines and worked as a fitness trainer and erotic dance teacher. Now a sought-after “romantic fitness” expert, Billy has combined his understanding of spirituality, sexuality, and fitness into his proprietary Fit for Love program. He currently teaches classes and workshops in San Francisco and in Marin County, California, where he lives.
Spiritual fitness is our ability to deal with difficulty and stresses of life. We see a lot of people, first allowing themselves to be stressed then reacting to stress by distracting themselves with alcohol, drugs, smoking, over eating, retail therapy, gambling—even misused sex. The problem with these self-distractions is that they often result in self-destruction. As a spiritually fit person, we learn to practice positively responding rather than negatively reacting to situations. We master ourselves and in doing so, learn to master life by turning obstacles into opportunities. You learn to turn obstacles into opportunities saying, “I get to,” instead of “I have to”—big difference! As a result we are more resilient, yet more compassionate and patient with ourselves–and others. Building this inner strength—this spirit—helps keep self-destructive thoughts, feelings and behaviors at bay and instead we turn towards self-fulfillment through expansion, growth and love (and a little laughter while we are at it!). The purpose of my work is to assist in the practice of building, blending and balancing your conscious energy with your creative/sex energies so you can thrive in your life, love life and personal relationship.
Years ago when I was teaching in Miami a student asked why I never went on vacation.
“What is the purpose of going on vacation?” I answered.
“To relax—enjoy yourself and have some fun,” they responded.
“Funny,” I said, “that sounds a lot like my work!”
I like to say, I don’t have a purpose—my purpose has me! But all that really means is that I love what I do. There is no greater joy for me than to watch someone learn to love and feel great about themselves. To witness them going from I can’t and I’m not, to I can and I am!
So what is my mission in my work with Fit for Love? Simply put, my mission is to help you put into practice methods to dynamically and symbiotically reach your full spiritual and sexual capacity. To help you be fit—to, for, from and because of love. In seeing and understanding yourself more clearly you will see and understand others more clearly. You will judge less yet reflect and understand more, much much more. Then you will become that which you seek most, admit it or not—love/truth!

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;where there is hatred, let me show love;where there is injury, pardon:where there is doubt, faith ;where there is despair, hopewhere there is darkness, lightwhere there is sadness, joyO divine Master,grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;to be understood, as to understand;to be loved, as to love;for it is in giving that we receive,it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
“Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions”,
Lord, make me a channel of thy peace;that where there is hatred, I may bring love;that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;that where there is error, I may bring truth;that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;that where there is despair, I may bring hope;that where there are shadows, I may bring light;that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;to understand, than to be understood;to love, than to be loved.For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.
PS:I take each and every word as a living real pillar to live by , that in doing so, transforms my life to a state of great freedom and pure joy so i am able to celebrate life at it fullest potencial….
