Spouse Community Update
Tak for sidst!We had a fantastic week at Spouse Community Aarhus. We spent a mindful evening last Thursday, when we gathered together and learnt techniques to be in the present moment, appreciate the smaller things in life, acknowledge challenges faced as an expat or spouse and tackle them with positivity. Special thanks to Carmen Manea, our professional coach, from CM-Camp.
We spent yet another morning of great company, conversation and coffee at our Monthly Coffee Morning! Many thanks to Merchant Coffee Shop for hosting us and all the lovely people who showed up on a wintery Friday!
We rounded up the week at our Salsa+Socializing event on Saturday evening. We had a beginner's lesson with our lovely Salsa instructor, relaxed ourselves with some drinks and danced into the night! Big thanks to Mambo social Aarhus for hosting us.

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.
