Inspired Evolution

In this week’s episode, Amrit interviews Biet Simkin, a renowned meditation leader, speaker, musician, artist and author. She is the Founder of Center of the Cyclone, an immersive experience that weaves meditation, self inquiry, art, music and fashion, offering an explosive experience and the author of the best selling book “Don't just sit there”. 

If you would like to dive deep into her book and discover the forty-four laws of life that are the missing link between the desire to meditate and the motivation needed to maintain a regular meditation practice, process the emotional fallout of meditative experiences, and find spiritual fulfillment, please go to:

Biet’s journey hasn’t always been easy. She humbly and openly shares her journey from losing several family members including her baby daughter, then struggling with drugs and heroin addiction, to pursuing a life as a spiritual leader. 

Amrit and Biet have a breathtaking and uplifting conversation that will offer you a unique, courageous approach to cultivating body love, healing your relationship with addictions, and stepping into a more aligned you.

They dive deep into the beginning of being a meditation teacher and living a life devoted to the soul, the importance and the courage of surrender, about resisting surrender and the concept of opposite actions.

Furthermore they converse about commonalities in people finding their own ways and the importance of coming into the open and addressing your story.

In this chapter you will have access to techniques that will help you overcome the adversity of loss and addiction and become more resilient, and you will discover how to achieve bliss, no matter what life throws at you.

You will master with a smile whatever you don’t want to do, discover how adversity becomes stepping stones to your success and deeply understand the transformative effects of releasing false stories and projections.

About Biet Simkin:

Biet is the world-renowned meditation leader dubbed the “Lady Gaga of Meditation.”  As a musician, Biet weaves the world of pop culture and spirituality, teaching practical applications of ancient spiritual wisdom. The teachings are featured in Biet’s best selling book, ‘Don’t Just Sit There!’ published by Simon & Schuster.

Raised by a Shaman in New York City, Biet signed to Sony Records at the age of 19 as a singer/songwriter. Diving into a Rock & Roll lifestyle, Biet became a high profile DJ in the fashion and art scene in Manhattan. However, following a string of life changing events, including the sudden loss of her daughter, Biet turned to her lifetime study of meditation and launched the Guided By Biet event series. The meditation experience reached a contemporary audience in cultural spaces, including museums, hotels, and fashion shows. These groundbreaking events were scored by her own music and were the first time meditation was mixed with pop culture, creating the revolutionary new trend. 

Featured in Vogue, Forbes, ELLE, and TIME magazine, and as the resident meditation guru at The Sundance Film Festival, 1 Hotels, MoMA, and SoulCycle, Biet advises spiritual best practices for hotels and brands. Biet is best known for modernizing the spiritual path and has been called the "Meditation Guru for the next generation.”

“I understand reality through my soul and through my heart”

Diving into trust and surrender: (08:00) 

The rock & roller had an innate sensation to be seen and useful to the world but was covered by the numbing effect of drugs.
