*Biet Simkin, creator of Center of the Cyclone, brings meditation into peoples' everyday lives. Raised by her Shaman/ Psychotherapist father Dr. Grigory Simkin, her first experience with passion and presence came to life with art, cinema and music growing up in New York City.  She spent the large part of her 20's "burning" as Jack Kerouac would say and looking for enlightenment in destruction. Due to gaps she found in her environment, she felt she could benefit her communities by bringing the spiritual and cultural together.  Her carefully crafted meditation practice embraces the intellectual, the spiritual, the romantic and the instinctive rather than leaning too heavily on the elusive metaphysical. Simkin has lead meditations in art galleries around New York City with the premise that enlightenment can be found without moving to a distant mountain.
