BIET SIMKIN - Spiritual teacher, meditation guide, founder of Center of the Cyclone.
"BEAUTY IS TO BECOME REAL, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU CRACK ON THE WAY TO DOING THAT."
RITUAL • What are your daily inner + outer rituals to cultivate beauty and radiance?
I wash my face at night and use nourishing creams. I read philosophy and poetry. I meditate. I try to be of service as much as possible. I have great sex with one amazing man.
NOURISH • What are your staples for beauty + wellness + radiance?
I believe wellness comes from delights and pleasure. So nothing that touches my lips and tongue isn't a staple part of my interacting with beauty. By interacting with life's delights, they therein make me beautiful.
BODY • How do you keep your body healthy, strong, and powerful?
I do hot yoga a lot, I do soul cycle a lot. I sleep as much as possible.
MIND • How do you stay grounded, confident, and centered in this modern day craziness we call life?
I always keep a watchful eye on my inner world, as I go through the day, so that I don't become too fascinated with reality and there by lose my needed ground and sense of self.
SPIRIT • BENSHEN means 'root of the spirit' - how do you root your spirit into your life, which in turn, keeps your body beautiful, healthy, and radiant?
I do exactly what I am told by my higher self, I do not deviate, I do not give up, and when fears arrive I do my best to label them quickly and identify them rightly so that they cannot trick me. I do this all with a light happy heart. I don't take myself too seriously. I do however take efforts seriously and consider discipline a huge part of human success! I cannot reach "spirit" without daily repeated consistency.
