A spiritual teacher and author, Biet was raised by an awakened Shaman to meditate as a toddler. Signed to Sony Records at the age of nineteen, she lived the rock ‘n’ roll glam life in New York City for years, until she finally fell to pieces as a heroin addict. In rapid succession, a near death experience, the tragic deaths of her infant child and father, as well as a fire that burnt down her home, propelled her to sober up. As she moved from meltdowns to miracles, she began to teach meditation to private clients, eventually founding a one of a kind system, Center of the Cyclone™ meditation.
Currently at work on a ‘how to meditate’ guidebook slated for a fall release under the Simon & Schuster imprint, Biet is one of only a handful of teachers in the U.S. qualified to bring meditation to the masses. Featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and numerous other publications, she has led meditations at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, Sundance Film Festival, and luxury hotels from Los Angeles to the Amalfi Coast. In addition to creating in room content for 1 Hotel, she has led workshops on how to meditate for executives from Sony to Soul Cycle.
Today, Biet immerses audiences in meditations that weave stillness, fashion, and a sexy rock ‘n’ roll edge into seamless, explosive experiences. Uniquely, she scores her meditation experiences with original music, letting audiences bliss out on shimmering melodies and mesmerizing vocals. Whether speaking to a corporate audience, leading a meditation at a luxury hotel, or working with a private client, she brings the same power and spark to the spiritual world.

"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!"
