Time for Wellbeing
The nonprofit sector has supported our communities through some unprecedented times and we have heard from you on how hard the last few years have been. As thanks for the hard work you have done for the NPVS sector and supporting Volunteer Alberta, we would like to offer a gift of nourishment. Mental health and stress levels are increasing and we are carrying more with us everyday, sometimes we just need a break for some renewal. We’re leaning into mutuality, connection, nourishment, relationships and realationality – let’s start with ourselves so we’re better able to connect with and support those around us.
“Caring for myself is not self indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” Audre Lorde, A Burst of Light (1988).
“Self care is a strategy (and as Lorde said a political one) to save energy and ensure personal resilience against the systemic racism of our governments and institutions.” On Canada Project (2022). “This means self-care is a necessity, not a luxury.”
Volunteer Alberta is offering space and time for you to participate in a SPA x HOME experience.
Spa x Home is a first-of-its-kind social self-care experience for connection through mindfulness and wellbeing practices, created by Jenka Gurfinkel, a leading health-tech designer. Like a guided, self-care vacation tour, the SPA x HOME combines digital tools with tactile, embodied techniques to calm the nervous system, ease tension, and inspire creativity. And the secret sauce is there’s no staring at screens required! SPA x HOME has worked with teams at J.P. Morgan, Etsy, Ulta Beauty, and more, and has been featured at top interaction design conferences including IxDA Global, and TalkUX. Find out more at: spaxhome.com
