First of all, I would like to extend my thoughts towards all the people affected by the current war in Ukraine – I hope you and your networks are safe. Voxel Hub is here to explore all perspectives critically; however, in moments of the clear attack on our humanity, we stand for peace. We stand we Ukraine and with each and every individual affected by the events in the region – regardless of their physical, national or psychological belonging.
Welcome to our February Newsletter. As we enter the lunar year of the Tiger, I am thinking a lot about the myth of the scary Internet. I was working with a fabulous therapist the other day, exploring my future plans and worries on a sand tray – a tool that helps us tap into the subconscious. What emerged for me as a critical challenge was the increasing negative bias most of us carry concerning social media and other connected platforms. Tools that were designed for collaboration are mostly seen today as beasts in their own right. Those inner worries we carry then affect our perception of reality, and thus we tend to make safe but limiting choices.
Welcome to 2022. Welcome to our January Newsletter. I hope you had a soft Holiday Season and managed to rest up. I also hope that you will see further opportunities to restore this month. I personally do not function well after a week or two of short holidays – I prioritise making time for rest every day, week, month, season instead. In fact, I prefer to adjust my life to the seasons in nature.
Welcome to our December Newsletter. As we enter the final month of this year, I am noticing the overwhelming need of my clients, friends and communities to slow down and to restore. So I hope that if you can, you are making time for yourself.
Welcome to our November Newsletter. Yesterday Voxel Hub was celebrating its second birthday, and it feels like this baby is slowly approaching the stage of early toddlerhood. In the next 12 months, we will be working softly on articulating the heart of our mission. We will simplify access to our content and write more and reach out to new audiences. We will focus on the core of our identity in relation to other, similar initiatives: the one to one relationship of humans with technology. So thank you for all your kind support so far, and stay tuned for this next stage of our journey.
Welcome to our October newsletter. This month we are talking about healing and the challenges that come with it. This month I reflect on the trauma of social injustice, individual and collective recovery. What is healing for you?
One most significant skill to learn for good digital wellbeing is managing transitions to and from online activities. Learning to negotiate our online and offline identities, connections and behaviours can be incredibly helpful but is frequently overlooked. I still see many articles about digital wellbeing and online safety assuming a clear cut line between the two worlds. That’s simply not the case.
Welcome to August, a month of holidays and first travel adventures for many of you. Time of well-deserved rest, especially this year. It also continues to be a busy time for some of you, especially if you cannot take time off at all. Last month I proposed the idea of active rest, so this time I would like to play with the other side of that coin: rest, reflection, restoration, smarter work and softer routine.
How do you feel, really? Welcome to July and our mid-year reflection. How are you? How are you feeling after all those months of storms and the unveiling of uncomfortable truths about our humanity? We have all come so far, and we all still have a lot of work to do. Many of us experience a lot of collective, generational and individual trauma. Many of us wake up to the …
How much do you know about empathy? Happy National Empathy Day! Happy Pride Month! Here, this month is a time of reflection about the diversity of expression and kindness that unites us in the UK. So what is empathy? Often confused with sympathy (feeling sorry for others), empathy is an ability to step into the other person’s emotional space. It is an ability to feel with them. We can do this in …
