How can you consciously evolve long-term relationships?

Returning to answer this question and other spiritual, romantic, and philosophical inquiries is the high priestess herself, Julie Piatt.

Longtime listeners are well-acquainted with my wife’s mystical ways with wisdom, but if this is your first introduction to the one who goes by SriMati, she 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, provides spiritual counsel via her Water Tiger online spiritual community, and is the founder & CEO of SriMu, the best and only plant-based cheese you need concern yourself with.

A frequent and recurring source of experience-based guidance on the podcast, Julie has dropped many a pearl over the years on everything from parenting and creativity to finding meaning in life and grappling with love, grief, and everything in between.

“You can recreate and redefine your relationships.”


Today’s conversation centers on intimacy in relationships.

Through the lens of our twenty-three years together we discuss how to intentionally evolve a long-term relationship beyond calcified habits, routines, expectations, and projections—and summon the courage to truly see and allow yourself to be seen by your partner.

We also discuss lessons learned from the front lines of start-up entrepreneurship through Julie’s SriMu adventures—plus thoughts on Wilco, Memphis, and more.

But at its core, this exchange is about redefining how we relate to our loved ones so we can experience the best of our relationships. 

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