Biet Simkin is the Founder of Center of the Cyclone, an immersive experience that weaves meditation, self inquiry, art, music and fashion, offering an explosive experience. After 30 years of study in the field Biet’s feeling was that the world of the intellect, fashion and art needed spirituality, and the world of spirituality was often missing the mark and needed some vanity and fire. Colliding these two worlds Biet has created events with MoMA, Lululemon, SoulCycle, Summit Series, Vice, Free People, Sundance Film Festival, The Path, The Collective, Babel, Serene Social, Soho House, Mind Body Green, 1 Hotels, Neuehouse, Wanderlust Festival, Adidas, Samsung, Sony and more..
Currently Biet is writing a book about the laws of meditation to be released in 2018 with Simon & Schuster. She is the resident and in-house Meditation Leader at all 1 Hotels with in-room content across all properties. Biet is also the voice of Expectful, a meditation app for pregnant expecting mothers. Meditation with Biet is different in that it is more emotional, her work takes you through the emotional, intellectual, instinctive and moving centers to get to a place of equanimity and joy. Through private one on ones, corporate groups, parties, speaking engagements and pop-ups in museums and art galleries, Biet is bringing this big work into the world and helping raise consciousness from the outside in. Her work is also unique as it is bringing the sound of her music into the meditation experiences and giving music a new venue. Her latest album ‘The Lunar’ debuted September 2015.
”A meditation guide and spiritual teacher of great warmth, wit, and perception. Biet Simkin goes deep; each session with her leaves the inner & outer worlds in ever greater harmony. A blessing in my life."

“Working with Biet not only improved and enriched my spiritual life, she guided me out of a prison I had spent years creating for myself. Without her I wouldn't be the artist I was always meant to be.”
Leslye Headland, Writer/Director, Bachlorette, Sleeping with Other People
“Biet is an essential source of guidance and support for me. Without her wit, perspective, and searching heart I don't know where I'd be. And I don't wanna know.”
Paul Sado, Writer and Director, The Cobbler, Talent for Trouble
“Biet Simkin is smart, sexy and spiritual. She will get you to the fourth dimension... and in style.”
Bunny Shapiro, Director of Visual Merchandising, Theory
"Biet’s group and private meditations helped me through one of the most challenging experiences of my life. I look back and laugh at all of the energy I expended on unnecessary worrying. I feel like I've done a 180 degree turn spiritually and mentally. Thanks Biet!"
