In honor of World Mental Health Day, we wanted to share the visualization and song that Quinlan shared in the Land of Qook-a-lackas during our August episode, "The Key to Calming Down." Research shows that techniques like what we practiced in the Land help to promote mental health, and we wanted to share this special visualization so that your family can use it to feel calm, safe, and peaceful. 

The role of Quinlan is played by Rebecca Naomi Jones, an American actress and singer best known for her performances in the Broadway rock musicals Passing Strange, American Idiot, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. She was also the first woman of color to play Laurey in Oklahoma! on Broadway and starred in As You Like It in NYC's Shakespeare in the Park.

The original song, "I Have the Key," which Quinlan shares with the children at the end of the visualization, was composed by Benjamin Weiner, a NYC-based writer, composer, and educator. 

Thank you to Dr. Cara Spitalewitz who advised us on the mediation that Quinlan leads. Cara is a clinical psychologist who works with children and an assistant clinical professor at Columbia University Medical Center.
