We’re incessantly fed a doom-and-gloom narrative. But there is great beauty in humanity. Focus on matters high-minded—because what and who you place your attention upon expands.
Our prophetess for today’s exploration beyond the material is healer, mother, and creator Julie Piatt.
Longtime listeners are well acquainted with the one who goes by SriMati—my in-house guru and better half. A human who is very good at many things, Julie is an accomplished yogi, musician, chef, and mom to our four children. She’s also the bestselling author of three vegan cookbooks, hosts the For The Life of Me podcast, lords over Water Tiger, her online spiritual community, and is the CEO and ‘Mother Arc’ of SriMu, the best plant-based cheese in the known universe.
Over the years, Julie has been a recurring source of spiritual wisdom on the podcast, dropping many a pearl on everything from parenting and creativity to navigating conflict, managing relationships, dealing with financial hardship, and many other subjects.
“Humans are amazing—we all have something unique and meaningful to share with the world.”
– JULIE PIATT
Today’s microphone communion with Julie is many things.
It’s an unearthing of this podcast’s origin story and the catalyst that sparked everything Julie and I have collectively created.
It’s a crash course in embracing neutrality and understanding the strength in letting go. It’s an exploration of why suffering is the ultimate engine for growth. And it’s a deep dive into the power of sexuality and how to channel it responsibly.
But most of all, this conversation is about the importance of relationships in all their forms—how to cultivate them, how to celebrate them, and most importantly, how to make them last.
The visually inclined can watch the alchemy transpire on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
