Become a member

We’d love you to join us! Spouse Community Aarhus is a community of enthusiastic international spouses and accompanying partners from all over the world that have settled in Aarhus and made this city our home. All spouses can become a member of Spouse Community Aarhus, whether you or your partner are internationals or Danes. We are lucky enough to have members of many ages and nationalities, both men and women, and some working or volunteering in Aarhus.
We are a non-profit volunteer-based organisation and our nominal membership fee of 100kr per year (that’s about the price of two coffees!) goes directly back into putting on our events - so the more members we have, the more awesome events!

As a member you’ll also receive invitations to all our Spouse Community Aarhus events which are free to members (or in the instance there is an entry fee or ticket needed, we negotiate the best price possible for our members), and access to our members-only Facebook forum which is a place to connect with members, ask questions and seek advice, and share events and articles. Non-members are also welcome to attend our events, however we usually ask for a 50kr fee per event - so with membership only 100kr per year, it’s worth signing up.

Transforming Challenges into Opportunities - A Mindful Approach

Dokk1, Hack Kampmanns Plads 2, Aarhus C, meeting point at info desk on level 1
Open to members for free, and 50kr for non-members

The spouse/expat life can be challenging at times. After the ‘honeymoon’ when everything is new and exciting, challenges start to come up. Frustration and the feeling of being stuck might be present or take other forms. If you felt this, you are not alone. Together with mindfulness teacher and professional coach, Carmen Manea, we will explore how, through a mindfulness approach, we can look at these challenges from different perspectives, and how we can transform them into opportunities. You will learn new skills, habits and practices that can bring you more joy and fulfilment.
