If you’ve been through deep pain and inner struggle, I know you are gonna really connect today with my guest, Biet Simkin who is a spiritual teacher and founder of Center of the Cyclone Meditation.

Prior to being told that her path was to be a spiritual teacher, Biet struggled with a heroin addiction and she went through one shocking loss after the next. She personally had a near-death experience as a kid, she lost her mother to cancer at a young age, her baby passed away at 4 months old, her best friend committed suicide, a fire destroyed her home, and she lost her father who had taught her how to meditate as a toddler.

Biet shares how she came to view the excruciating losses in her life as tremendous gifts and how connecting to her soul shifted everything.

Biet’s story is a meltdown-to-miracle testament that hitting rock bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there. It really doesn’t. You can rise up and out if you’re willing to shift your perception of suffering and look inward for answers.

This episode is PACKED with juicy, real and raw truths and insights. Nowadays, Biet uses her gifts to help thousands of people embrace meditation as a way to stop listening to the negative voice so we can commune with our higher selves, with the true voice, so that we can guide ourselves through any sort of suffering, personal hardships or confusing states of being.
