Unboxing?? What is unboxing yourself? Those were the thoughts after seeing the initial advert for TU/e in Dialogue. Since I love to explore; I signed up. I didn’t know what to expect but I was up for finding out more.
It turns out there were two concepts to the session.
The second annual Celebration of Women in Science was during the International Day of Women and Girls in Science and had the theme: Investment in Equality in Science, Technology and Innovation in the Era of Digitalization for Sustainable Development and, for this reason, we invited 3 amazing speakers. We ended with a workshop to activate the attending men and women and inspire them to become the inspiration needed in their own fields.
The event aimed to promote tolerance, understanding, and dialogue about each other’s’ identity struggles even when they were not directly relatable to our own experiences.

On Wednesday 20th of November Tint in cooperation with Groep-één hosted the event ‘Well-being among students’ in Atlas at the Tu/e campus. This event aimed to create a place for students to openly talk about issues concerning their well being and brainstorm about solutions. Here I give you a glimpse into my experience as a participant.
I was invited to dream about my future... This evening was a follow-up to the self-leadership workshop that I attended before, where we spent a night reflecting on our lives and core values. Both workshops helped me paint a more clear picture of what I want my future to be like.
The theme of this mindful dinner was ''Emotion''. Energetic Alchemist has been known to transform lower state emotions into higher, more joyful emotions.
Together, while guided by meditation, the participants experienced and transformed each emotion connecting deeper with themselves through the specifically designed dishes, all the way from anger to love.
Nowadays, many students deal with stress, anxiety, depression, which can all result in burnout, especially since people don’t like talking about these ‘sensitive’ topics, which just makes it worse. Just hearing that it’s okay to sometimes feel depleted or having a very unproductive day isn’t the end of the world, was enough for certain attendees to feel more at peace with themselves.
TINT invited Curious Piyuesh to teach students of Eindhoven a new way of presenting complex and abstract topics. Everything can be transformed into an exciting visual story from course annotations to your future dreams.
TINT and 'Enter the Now' have joined forces to bring you some mindfulness during the busy times of exams week in the third quartile for you to take a break from your studies to join a short meditation session during lunchtime.
The meditation session was guided by 'Enter the Now' to inspire you for productive study time.
