Biet Simkin is a meditation and breathwork teacher, and author of Don't Just Sit There! 44 Insights to Get Your Meditation Practice Off the Cushion and Into the Real World.
This week’s guest on Under The Skin is my friend Biet Simkin! Biet is a very popular meditation and breath work teacher. She has new book out called, “Don’t Just Sit There: 44 Insights to Get Your Meditation Practice Off the Cushion and Into the Real World” ( ). In this podcast talk about some of the 4th Way techniques that she employs in he work, we do a breath work demonstration and discuss how to inspire people to live a spiritual life without adding to the “woo woo” and skepticism that people often feel when presented with these ideas. Biet was raised by a Shaman in New York City and signed to Sony Records at the age of 19 as a singer/songwriter. She became a high-profile DJ in the fashion and art scene in Manhattan. Following a string of life changing events she turned to her lifetime study of meditation and launched the ‘Guided By Biet’ event series. Instagram: @guidedbybiet Website:  
Even if you’ve only dipped your spiritual toe in the meditation waters, chances are you’ve already heard of today’s guest, Biet Simkin. Yes, she’s a renowned meditation teacher and spiritual author but she also brings a sense of modern sensibility (and a little edge) to ancient wisdom -- and is often referred to as the David Bowie of spiritual circles. How cool is that!?! Today, Simkin brings 30+ years of spiritual teaching and a lifetime of heartbreak and rock n’ roll to the fullest podcast and we couldn’t be more thrilled -- or is that blissed out?
My guest today is meditation teacher, musician and all around creatrix, Biet Simkin who's based out of NYC. Biet is a wonderful example of someone who's let her inner life guide her external life (is there really a difference?) which is working out pretty pretty great for her. As you'll hear in the episode Biet is also an incredibly genuine and love-filled person. Coincidentally, my favorite type of person! Biet is also leading guided sound meditations at Further Future a music and lifestyle festival taking place April 29 through Sunday May 1, 2016 at the Moapa River Indian Reservation near Las Vegas, Nevada. More details inside the episode but Further Future is going to be an amazing time and experience and if I didn't have a baby due right when it was taking place I'd be attending. Find out more about Further Future here: Topics Discussed in This Episode The blessing of Biet's tragic upbringing Biet's father, Grigori Simkin Overcoming depression and addiction Biet's musical career Changing your mind to change your life Surrendering Suffering Listening to your inner voice Radical Joy Being Sober and Getting High (off your own supply) Closing song is "Si Do Hymn" from Biet's most recent album, "The Lunar" As always, subscribe to Synchronicity on iTunes and Stitcher and rate and review if you haven't already. Many thanks to Jordan from Further Future/Robot Heart for linking me and Biet. You rule Jordan!
