Intelligence comes in many forms. Rational intellect is one such source. But intuition, feelings, and gut instinct have their place and should not be ignored.

Here to elaborate on this notion is Julie Piatt (aka SriMati), returning for her umpteenth microphone communion.

For those new or newer to the podcast, Julie takes many forms. She’s a studied yogi, musician, vegan chef, and mom to our four children. She’s also the bestselling author of three vegan cookbooks. She hosts the For The Life of Me Podcast, is the priestess of Water Tiger, her online spiritual community, and is the founder & CEO of SriMu–the best plant-based cheese in the universe. Yes, I am biased. Nonetheless, it is a fact.

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.

Today she delivers the spiritual goodness you’ve come to love and crave, and then some.

​​“The real intelligence of the body lives in the heart.”


Under Sri Mati’s tutelage, we learn about the many benefits of yoga, the power of neutrality amidst painful circumstances, and breathing techniques and devotional prayers to amplify feelings of presence. We explore the diversity of intellects, heart intelligence, the balance between masculine and feminine energy, and how to release generational trauma and imprinted behavioral patterns.

We discuss motherhood, parenting, moving through suffering, and bridging communication gaps within relationships, including our own.

And finally, we tap into the importance of community in entrepreneurship–among many other topics—including Julie’s recent obsession with wingsuit people.

The visually inclined can watch the magic transpire on YouTube. As always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

May the words of the wise Sri Mati inspire, enliven, and above all, enlighten.
