Not only a highly successful, well loved and respected Australian footballer, but an incredibly humble, content and happy human. I absolutely loved chatting with Brad Fittler for this session.

I learnt tonnes about his ideas on mindfulness and life in general, including Gnosis Meditation, breathing, biophilia, living on a farm and how we can look to ducks to learn how to deal with trauma (yeah – you heard me). Some great concepts and tools plus his favourite smoothie recipe and why the drive to and from school with his daughter is the best part of his day.

I’ve included a preview of my chat with Brad below. If you’d like to listen to the full episode, pop over to iTunes.
