Taking your body back with Amy Sheppard

The front woman for Aussie band Sheppard, Amy Sheppard was always upset with the look of her body, even from age 10 when she would look at magazines feeding her beauty standards she could never reach. In 2014 Amy performed for Ellen, an honour she was humbled by, but behind it all was the fear of not looking right, of being judged and of hating her body. Then she decided she wanted to be part of the solution so she published a photo of her in a not so flattering pose expressing her desire for people to stop punishing women for their imperfections. From there her body positive movement #kissmyfatass blew up and now Cass Dunn talks to Amy about what we can all do to be better.

Monitoring your meditation with Ariel Garten

Meditation is a thousand year old practice but Ariel has found a way to bring that practice into the 21st century with her breakthrough technology Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband. Her mission is to help people do a deep dive in understanding your brain, how it makes them who they are and how to help manage the crazy that resides in all of us. Cass Dunn has already used the Muse headband to monitor herself and as a mindfulness and meditation teacher herself she has some fascinating insights on the technology. Cass and Ariel discuss the things wearables can teach us about ourselves and if it’s possible that technology is making us more detached from ourselves in the long run.

Changing the brain with Sally Callie

She finished fourth in three successive rowing regattas at the Olympic Games and has won numerous medals and awards along the way, but Sally’s true power lies in the recovery from her stroke and brain surgery. As Sallie says “Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it” and that has been true of her recovery. Sallie talks to Cass Dunn about challenging her audience and forcing them to look at the world from a new perspective, while reminding us that a firm mindset is the only way out of the darkness.

Cutting back on the booze with Maz Compton

She was one half of the successful radio duo Dan and Maz, but along the way Maz Compton found herself falling victim to the trap of drinking every night without even realising it. When she looked at the statistics she saw that women were now drinking more now than ever and many are drinking as much as their male counterparts. So once she knew she had a problem the next step was figuring out what to do about it, what followed was a long journey and a book at the end titled “The Social Rebellion”. Cass Dunn and Maz talk about regaining control over your drinking and finding the fun in sobriety. Four years later she’s still sober.

Giving back to your community with Lucas Patchett

Many of us are searching for happiness by adding more to our lives – more money, a better car, a bigger house. But studies have shown that what really makes us happy is connection with other human beings and giving back to our community. Lucas runs the charity Orange Sky, an organisation that offers mobile laundry services to those living on the street. And while they wash their clothes, they talk to the people they are helping and it’s through these conversations they have found true meaning in their lives and in the lives of the under-served. Cass Dunn and Lucas talk about the power of giving back, what conversation does for the soul and how to find a meaningful volunteering job.

Margie Warrell asks Cass Dunn the question, what if we change the story? As a best selling author and inspirational speaker Margie knows the barriers to fear and how to overcome them.
