When Australian transplant, Rohan Templeman fell in love and moved across the pond to Miami, he brought his love of farmer's markets and the art of making tempeh with him.  In 2017, after partnering with his father-in-law Dan Jonas, BeCultured Tempeh was born.  Originating in Indonesia, tempeh is a protein source traditionally made from soy.  Describing their methods as part art, part science, this duo has created irresistibly delicious tempeh made from organic beans instead of soy, which they believe makes it a more attractive and sustainable product.

A year of challenges and setbacks almost derailed their hopes of bringing homemade tempeh to Miami, however through perserveance and the passion for feeding people good food, BeCultured Tempeh is now open for business at farmer's markets across Miami and select restaurants/stores.

We hope you enjoy the conversation,

Paul Silitsky was working as the CEO of a tech company in 2008 when he woke up one morning believing he had laryngitis.  Although he got his voice back a few days later it started to disappear  again.  As the days went by and his voice didn’t improve, he sought out help to find out what was going on with him.  It took him 18 months of seeing various doctors to find out he had Spasmodic Dysphonia, a rare neurological disorder that affects the voice muscles in the larynx.

Since he couldn’t and didn’t want to speak much during this time, he found himself with a lot of time on his hands.  That’s when he came across a book by Jon Kabat-Zinn called, Wherever You Go There You Are, which introduced him to the power of meditation and the simplicity of being still.  Since then, he’s dedicated himself to cultivating a strong meditation practice and sharing its many benefits with others by opening Innergy Meditation, the first meditation studio created in South Florida.

Located in Miami Beach, Innergy offers classes for beginner meditators as well as seasoned practitioners.  With more and more evidence being found about the benefits of meditation, there’s no better time to discover your practice and Innergy Meditation can help you get started.

We hope you enjoy the conversation,

Alex and Jeanette
