Biet Simkin is a global meditation leader. She is called the “Lady Gaga of Meditation” as she combines modern principles, pop culture, and spirituality into her meditation practice and teachings. Biet has overcome so much in her life - from the death of her parents and daughter, to the ups and downs of the music industry, as well as overcoming addiction. I learned so much from her book, Don't Just Sit There!: 44 Insights to Get Your Meditation Practice Off the Cushion and Into the Real World, and I’m so grateful to have her on the podcast this week.


This episode is filled with riffs on mortality, getting sober, incorporating meditation into our daily lives, facing our mortality without fear, and what it means to be on the path to enlightenment. 


In this podcast we discuss:

  • Overcoming adversity
  • Sobriety
  • Finding and choosing peace no matter what is going on in our lives or the world around us
  • Hidden childhood trauma and how it affects our path to enlightenment
  • Divided attention versus fascinated attention
  • What it means to walk the spiritual path
  • Coming to terms with and facing our mortality without fear
  • A mini Q&A about meditation: best times, lengths, and the meaning of boredom
