Finding Our Superpower in Recovery with Biet Simkin

This month’s theme is all about recovery! We’re going to have some really amazing stuff coming at you all month long. Today we’re looking at a powerful concept with regards to recovery: mindfulness and meditation.

Our guest today, Biet Simkin, encompasses these concepts in everything that she does. She is a spiritual teacher, speaker, author, and musician. She creates these epic meditation experiences all around the globe and scores them with her own music. Her new book, Don't Just Sit There!, is a guidebook that will empower you to dive into meditation by helping you work through the not-so-peaceful side of achieving peace. It’s an incredibly powerful read for both experienced and novice meditators alike.

We’re really excited for you all to join us for this powerful conversation! Biet not only shares her journey and story of recovery with us, but gives her unique perspective on the gifts that tragedy brings, how to break free from addiction and begin taking control of your life, why and how to live in the present, the importance of mindfulness and meditation, and self-care tips.

Don’t miss this week’s kickoff episode for the month of recovery!
