Rachel Zinman has been part of Capturing Gratitude from the beginning, and is no stranger to being interviewed by me (check out her other interview in the Gratitude Interviews book). Last year Rachel and I gathered a group of beautiful women to create and gratitude yantras with flowers. Rachel filmed the day, and has created a video on how to do your own gratitude yantras for the Capturing Gratitude eCourse (launching on World Gratitude Day, September 21st).
So, without further ago, I'd like to introduce you to Rachel Zinman......
Lauren: In this moment Rachel, what are you grateful for?
Rachel: My wonderful partner John. Living in a beautiful home in Byron Bay. Having time to devote to a daily yoga practice.
Lauren: Tell me a bit about yourself Rachel.
Rachel: I'm a yoga teacher and yoga teacher trainer who shares yoga globally and locally. I have been devoted to yoga since I was a teenager and am absolutely passionate about its transformative effects on the body and mind. I love all the creative arts and express myself through the mediums of writing, music, dance, art, film making and photography. I have a 21 year old son and love to be in Nature its where I am reminded of who I am.
Rachel: This coming year I will be teaching a Yoga Teacher Training in Byron Bay and a retreat in India in February 2015. My partner John and I are also in the process of creating an amazing retreat space for people in South Africa along the garden route. Plans are also in the works for a luxury retreat in Umbria in July 2015. Being a passionate creative person I love to write blogs for various online magazines and also have my own blog and enjoy creating short documentary/ promotional style films. I also share Kirtan with my partner John Weddepohl wherever possible and have produced three CD's with my former band the Subway Bhaktis.
Lauren: Why do you think people should join us in Capturing Gratitude?
Rachel: There's something quite magical about taking photos of things you are grateful for each day. It makes you stop, think and feel into whats so special about the little every day things. Mostly we take life for granted, and not only that we take ourselves for granted. So making time in your day to capture what inspires you is not only special for you but sharing it with others creates a community of gratitude. I think it's so special to share this way and it has really changed my life for sure.
Lauren: Please share one of your gratitude photographs with us Rachel.
Lauren: Thanks again Rachel! I am really excited about the video you've created, and can't wait to share it in the Capturing Gratitude eCourse.
