Billy is a Spiritual Teacher and Yoga Teacher in the Kashmir Tradition, and author of the book “The Mirage of Separation”.
He had a strong spiritual orientation early in life and started to explore non-dualistic teachings in his twenties. He met Jean Klein, a master of Advaita and Yoga who became his teacher for 14 years. He practiced ‘Art of Listening’ and self-inquiry and then one day, while on a silent retreat, “all identification with a separate Entity dissolved” and he then knew himself as Silence.

The sages of Tantra have known for centuries that when you follow the path of Shakti—the sacred feminine principle personified by the goddesses of yoga—these gifts can manifest spontaneously. Yet most of us, women as well as men, have yet to experience the full potential of our inner feminine energies. When you know these powers for what they are, they heighten your capacity to open spiritually, love more deeply and fearlessly, create with greater mastery, and move through the world with skill and delight. In Awakening Shakti, you will learn how to recognize and invite:
Kali, bringer of strength, fierce love, and untamed freedom
Lakshmi, who confers prosperity and beauty
Saraswati, for clarity of communication and intuition
Radha, who carries the divine energy of spiritual longing
Bhuvaneshvari, who creates the space for sacred transformation
Parvati, to awaken creativity and the capacity to love
With a wealth of meditations, visualizations, mantras, teachings, and beautifully told stories, Awakening Shakti provides a practical guide for activating the currents of the divine feminine in every aspect of your life.
