I'm delighted to bring you the first in a series of gratitude interviews for Capturing Gratitude, filmed on the gratitude bench in Byron Bay, Australia.
Last year Uplift Connect created an amazing gratitude video, sharing curated snippets of a full day of filming on the gratitude bench. They have kindly shared with me the full interviews, and I'm so excited to in turn share them with you.
At university, I listened to Mel Bampton on Triple J (radio), and was stoked to find out last year that she had changed her name to Lissie Turner and opened a yoga shala just around the corner from my house (she's an amazing yoga teacher by the way). Lissie has a definite way with words and has an authenticity and vulnerability about her that is breathtaking.
Lissie dragged her good friend and acclaimed musician Ash Grunwald along to the gratitude bench to talk about cups of tea, death, self harm and making music.
This is one gratitude interview that you don't want to miss.
The International Day of Happiness is just around the corner, on March 20th, and we're diving into another 30 Days of Gratitude. Want to join us? Come on over to the Capturing Gratitude website to find out how you can get your gratitude on.
Loads of gratitude to Uplift Connect for this video, The Farm Byron Bay for building the gratitude bench and to Lissie Turner and Ash Grunwald for sitting on the bench, sharing their stories and being the glorious human beings that they are.
This video isn't your usual gratitude list. We'd love to hear your thoughts after watching it, so do leave a comment below.
