The body scan is one of the most effective ways to begin mindfulness meditation practice. The purpose is to tune in to your body—to reconnect to your physical self—and notice any sensations you’re feeling without judgment. While many people find the body scan relaxing, relaxation is not the primary goal. The goal is to train the mind to be more open and aware of sensory experiences—and ultimately, more accepting. The body scan can help build your ability to focus and be fully present in your life.

Follow along to our body Scan Meditation at home by listening to the pre recorded session below. 


Speak Easy Story_Cheat Sheet.jpg

We created Speak Easy as a way to get to know our community on a deeper level. Conversation is a skill - we like to think of it like a muscle that you can train. We've put together a mix of witty, introspective, fun and provoking questions to allow you to have more meaningful conversation with your friends and strangers.

Download our "conversation cheat sheet", print and fold it, and you're ready to play!

*Speak Easy is designed to be played with Jenga, but you can totally just ask the questions too!
