This week's theme: Body Talk

Wish you could read minds? Ok, we can’t teach you that. But we CAN teach you to read body language, and it turns out thats almost the same thing. 

We’ve gathered experts from all different areas of body language reading. They’ll each lead 15-minute “downloads” through the evening - teaching you a specific part of what they know, and a skill, fact or trick you can put to use this weekend!
