BIET SIMKIN is probably the most interesting person in the world … seriously, your mind is about to be BLOWN. The sh*t that she’s been through and the person who she has become because of that is BEYOND all of our dreams of determination and strength. So Krista + Lindsey are peeling back the layers of the goddess Biet Simkin …
For those of you who don’t know who Miss Simkin is, she New York native, first-generation American and a leader in the world of meditation. Not only was her father a philosophical shaman and gave her the Book of the Dead at age nine, Biet was singer and fashion fiend who spent a big part of her life living the life of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll. And not the glamorous, Hollywood kind.
After struggling with a drug and alcohol addiction, mourning her father’s death, as well as her child’s passing, Biet talks about her Ah-Ha moment of sobering up and changing her life for good. She knew it was time to find the person she was meant to be, which is what this episode is all about.
The journey to find your identity is hard for everyone, and Biet has developed a meditation technique not only to help you find it, but to help you be the best person you can be. Her technique is like “watching a documentary on yourself” and observing your every move AKA “Divided Attention Mediation”.
Another amazing point Biet stresses is how we are more than just our body and our minds. Everything from hallucinations, serendipity, and voices – those all mean more than we know. And Biet talks about how listening to these transcendental messages LITERALLY saved her LIFE and how her practice develops this kind of acknowledgement. It’s a spirituality POW WOW worth taking a listen to #Almost30Nation!
