About Silk + Sonder
We are a mental wellness platform and community committed to making daily self-help and self-care easy from the comfort of your home. As part of your membership, you receive a new thoughtfully curated, guided monthly journal (yes, analog!) inspired by positive psychology and access to our members-only community and virtual programming for peer-to-peer support and inspiration.
Our analog-first, community-driven approach is rooted in principles of positive psychology. We want to solve the emotional health epidemic for our customers versus be a band-aid fix. At its core, Silk + Sonder is a space for mindfulness, journaling, planning, tracking, and creative expression—all in one.
Silk + Sonder was founded by Meha Agrawal, a former software engineer and product manager, who found herself in an emotional rut with the same disjointed, isolating, and self-navigated options most of us have today: therapy felt intimidating, coaching was expensive, anxiety medications seemed risky, and meditation apps were quite frankly…boring. While all potentially viable options for improving her mental wellness, simply finding and engaging with any of these felt onerous and insufficient. She longed for deeper connection and accountability - eventually discovering the therapeutic power of pen to paper and peer-driven support. The profound impact it left on her life left her no choice but to quit her stable job and dedicate her time and energy to bring an approachable, impactful solution to others' mental wellness, worldwide.
In today’s digital world where we are bombarded with endless notifications and picture-perfect comparisons, we’ve forgotten to lean on simplicity and science. As humans, we crave intimacy and connection with ourselves and others. Journaling and writing happens to be one of the best mediums to disconnect in order to reconnect. Specifically, clinical psychologists and their research has confirmed that journaling helps heal trauma, increase IQ and memory, alleviate anxiety and stress, and more.
We're not just another planner or agenda so annual doesn't really make sense for us. We understand that as humans, we are constantly evolving. Sometimes things go as planned and sometimes life presents uncertainties. We provide you the tool to start afresh or go deeper in your practice every month - and the opportunity to give us feedback on what's working and what's not, so we get better every time.
At Silk + Sonder, everything we do is centered around the 4 C's: Clarity (inspiring mental clarity), Compassion (practicing self-compassion and compassion towards others), Creativity (encouraging space for creative expression and play), and Connection (fostering deeper connection with ourselves and others).

Hear from our Founder and CEO, Meha Agrawal, on the meaning of Silk + Sonder.
"I stumbled upon the word 'Sonder'- a made up word from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. It has a profound meaning as "the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own - populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries, and inherited craziness - an epic story that continues invisibly around you." To me what was fascinating is that we all seem to feel this heaviness / complexity of life in isolation on our own path - yet it's such a similar feeling we all feel. 'Silk' is our way of adding softness and smoothness to that otherwise complex feelings of life."
