Spiritual well-being

Spiritual wellness has different meanings for different people.

Companionship is a main form of service in spiritual well-being.

At its core, however, it is the ability to engage with other people or the things around us - such as nature - for mental relaxation, happiness and peace of mind.

A supportive presence is an important aspect of spiritual health, and here's where Hovos can help you.

Spiritual wellness can also be about prayer, affirmations and meditation.

Hosts: Define your spiritual project

On our website, you'll find volunteers offering their assistance in your spiritual projects to bring it to fruition.

Does your project have religious elements, such as Bible studies or recitations of Hindu Vedic chants or learning the basic tenets of a new religion? Or do you want volunteers who can teach you meditation or yoga?

On our website, you'll find volunteers offering their assistance in your spiritual projects to bring it to fruition.

Regardless of your spiritual aspirations, you're sure to find individuals with a strong sense of spiritual self to guide you in the right direction.

In a different situation, may be you have a certificate in spirituality, health and healing, and you're planning to offer classes. You may want to get a feel of it, practice a bit, and get feedback before going live.

Volunteers can assist in this trial phase, providing you honest opinions while also benefiting from your knowledge.

For some host families, a spiritual project may simply involve practicing yoga or going for nature walks with companions.

Spiritual wellness can also be about prayer, affirmations, meditation that resonate with your belief system.

If your idea of spiritual support is music companionship, you're bound to find musically talented volunteers who are perhaps trained singers or proficient at an instrument.

Most of our volunteers perform more than one activity. For instance, they may not only contribute to your spiritual project but also assist with animal care, light cleaning around the house or gardening. You also have the opportunity to learn a new language from them.

Wins from this experience
