What we're about

Have you ever felt that the way you see life has changed since moving to Sweden? Do you feel sometimes that no matter what effort you put into learning the language, it's still hard for you to be understood or to be included in society? Do you feel like you lack enthusiasm to do what you always used to do? Have you lost your inspiration? Does the weather change your perceptions and energy? If you have a job, do you feel welcome there?

If you are a Swede and also feel lost in the middle of this society sometimes , getting confused and disoriented feeling that people treat you in a different way, you are also more than welcome to share your views and thoughts with us.

We are positive, happy, and motivated people who want to relate with other people who also feel challenged to make meaningful friendships and connections here in Stockholm. We believe that we can re-spark our energy, inspiration and love for living by sharing our experiences and ways of creating energy and joy.

Sometimes we just feel lonely. Many of us are away from our family, friends, culture and the sound of our mother tongue. Sometimes we just miss it all. So, if you feel that way and would like to share your story and come away from our meet-up with some tips, strategies, meditations, podcasts, articles, books, frameworks, etc. to keep our personal energy up in this city which can feel dark, quiet and disconnected at times, you are very welcome to join us!

Over time, we hope to build some meaningful relationships, and continue to learn about ourselves and ways we can become resilient to loneliness, low energy, and a lack of inspiration. Together we can create more sparks and passion in Stockholm. So come with a story to share, or just with an attitude open to listen. You're very welcome!

Vulnerability Sunday!

Impact Hub Stockholm

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” -Brené Brown Maybe it doesn't sound so inviting, but I consider vulnerability to be one of the key ingredients to creating a meaningful friendship. It's part of the premises of how this group was created--sharing with a friend some of my fears, insecurities and stories in my life which I wanted to improve. It takes a lot of courage to show up to yourself-- really looking deep inside and working on those areas where you maybe quickly change the subject or turn off your brain & switch on Netflix. So, let's start step by step with arming you with a few "tools" and mental tricks to stick with yourself and really grow in those areas that are uncomfortable. I understand it sounds possibly strange to have a workshop with some strangers on a topic that's so personal. We'll have a balance of solo & group discussions, and I promise that sharing your journey with others will make it even more powerful & effective. The hope is that you'll be able to take away some "next steps" in working on vulnerability on a personal level, at work, in a relationship, at school, or any role where you could be shining even more. The other hope is of course that you meet some friends who are also on the journey of learning and improving. As always, the more you put in, the more you get out! The workshop will be held at the Impact Hub in Stockholm, on Luntmakargatan 25 (behind Urban Deli, near Hötorget). We'll start promptly at 10:30, but you're welcome to join us at 10 to grab a cup of coffee & meet some people before we get to WORK! We'll finish at 13. The cost of the workshop is 75kr, including a fika, which you can swish to Maria to secure your seat (further instructions to follow after you RSVP). Please RSVP only if you plan on joining! Can't wait to see you there!
