Embracing Simple: the Art of Hygge

Dim the overhead lights, grab a cozy blanket, make your favourite warm drink, and join us for online conversation about the art of hygge (pronounced hoo-ga).

Hygge is a characteristic of Danish culture that refers to a quality of coziness or being comfortable that produces feelings of contentment and well-being. Meik Wiking, the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, describes hygge as "basically like a hug, just without the physical touch."

Please join us for Embracing Simple: the Art of Hygge (it's like an online hug!) on October 21 from 7 – 8 p.m. through the Zoom link below. To honour the time of fellow participants and to minimize disruptions, please arrive to the conversation a few minutes early. Once the conversation begins, access to the Zoom link will no longer be available to the public.

This conversation is hosted by Right from the Start, YWCA Banff, and Canmore FCSS.

The Town of Canmore is located within Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta. In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge the Canmore area, known as “Chuwapchipchiyan Kudi Bi” (translated in Stoney Nakoda as “shooting at the willows”) and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Îyârhe Nakoda (Stoney Nakoda) – comprised of the Bearspaw First Nation, Chiniki First Nation, and Wesley First Nation – as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Blackfoot Confederacy comprised of the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3, within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. We acknowledge all Nations who live, work, and play and help us steward this land and honour and celebrate this territory. We commit to working to live in right relations and to advance Truth and Reconciliation.
