Biet Simkin is an artist, spiritual guide, and the founder of the Center of the Cyclone, an experience that blends meditation, art, music, and self-reflection. She’s also the author of the new bookDon’t Just Sit There!. Her journey to becoming all of these things began in childhood, as she was raised by an awakened shaman and was meditating by the time she was two. She grew up quickly when her mother died suddenly from pancreatic cancer when she was six years old, leaving her with her brother and father.
Biet joined me on the mbgpodcast to talk about the ups and downs of her childhood & early adulthood, including signing a deal with Sony records at the age of 20 and battling drug and alcohol addiction for nine years. It wasn’t until her father died when she was 28 that she realized, “I can’t do this anymore.” She explains in depth the details leading up to the date she became sober, the birth then loss of her first child and how her life quickly opened before her eyes.
