Wellness Sessions With The Nest Project

Local wellness and mental health promotion organization The Nest Project has been providing a series of wellness sessions funded by the County of Vermilion River (CVR).

Weekly online sessions began in March as Nest Project educators opened conversations and provided tips surrounding mindfulness, journaling for wellness, and will wrap up the series of sessions with the topic of choosing joy.

“The response has been wonderful,” said Nest Project educator and co-founder Kerri Lorenson. The sessions have a max of 40 participants to foster a more intimate space where more conversations can happen. According to Lorenson, each session has 20-40 participants.

Choosing joy sessions began via ZOOM on April 20 at 7 p.m. and will conclude on May 4. Sessions are recorded and registration will be open until the final week. To register, go to TheNestProject.ca/join-us.

Following the Nest Project sessions with the CVR, in partnership with Thorpe and funded by Lloydminster Mental Health’s Project Sunrise, the Nest Project is offering “Living Well” sessions from April 26 to June 15 and will be covering similar topics surrounding wellness and mental health promotion.

Registration for sessions with Thorpe and Project Sunrise are open on Lloydminstermentalhealth.ca/livingwell where it will be hosted every Monday at 7 p.m. and anyone can register.

“It’s been really exciting to get into the community of Lloydminster,” said Lorenson.

The Nest Project looks forward to offering another series of wellness sessions funded by the CVR in the fall.
