TINT and Enter the Now are hosting weekly guided meditations so you can start, explore or deepen your mindfulness skills within a lively community.


Join us for a 15-20 minute meditation session during lunchtime (12:40-13:20) to inspire you for a productive study time and a life focused on the present moment. Afterward, there is plenty of time to share and connect within the group.


Meditation is a way of becoming aware of what’s alive inside of yourself. By meditating regularly, you will develop a stronger connection with yourself, others, and life. This connection can help you with finding more calmness in your days, increasing focus on what you’re doing, coping with stress, and building resilience.


08|06|2022 Open Stories


Sharing stories is how we connect as humans. Learning more about someone and their story enables us to understand them on a different level, inspires us to change, or takes us to places, situations and emotions that we have never imagined before... And we love that!!!


The 2nd Edition of “Open Stories” will be an evening to celebrate Pride Month and to inspire the Eindhoven student community to take more time to listen to the real stories around us.


For that, TU/e & Fontys organizations joined forces to find captivating storytellers from our community, who are ready to share their life stories with you in an intimate conversation. You can expect diverse stories from LGBTQ+, international experiences, and mental health, amidst other topics. All heartening, raw and honest stories that will broaden your horizons.

18|05|2022 Show Yourself to the World

Reflect on your personal traits and find more comfort in your own shoes guided by life coach Margit van Tuijl.

It's interesting how much effort we usually put into showing a perfect image of ourselves to the world. At the same time it takes a lot of energy to push those elements of ourselves away that we'd rather like to hide. While giving space to being yourself brings 'space to breath', pleasure, relaxation and in the end it also makes you stronger.
This workshop is a more elaborate version of the show yourself to the world workshop offered during the celebration of women in science 2022, read the review below.
