Have you ever been hesitant to speak your mind out of fear of hurting others?
Are you worried about the consequences of expressing your opinions?
Have you deleted a post from social media to avoid backlash?
Nowadays, it seems very easy to get in trouble for something one says, so it's natural to feel uncertain or confused about the difference between freedom of expression and hate speech. Society is always in ongoing change, but there are certain habits that can help you understand this important difference.
Our program manager, Kimberly, has recently attended an European training on this topic and she is excited to share her knowledge with the students of Eindhoven.
Explore how to communicate your opinions effectively and safely. Learn to recognize and deal with hate speech better and understand the impact it has on others. Delve into how to express yourself freely while respecting the rights and dignity of others.
Don't miss this opportunity to improve your communication skills, feel safer and provide that safety to others around you. Join us for an interactive event to explore this important topic together!
There are only 17 spots, so make sure to buy your ticket in time!
How much effort do you put into showing a perfect image of yourself to the world?
Why not give yourself more space for who you really are?
Reflect on your personal traits and find more comfort in your own shoes.
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. Giving space to being yourself brings 'space to breath', pleasure, relaxation and in the end it also makes you stronger.
The workshop given by our life coach Margit van Tuijl will help you free yourself from all the expectations you try to fulfill. The workshop is given in complete confidence and is a safe space for you to explore your personal traits.
Sign up below to secure a spot for yourself! There are only 15 spots for this workshop.
Are you really as open-minded as you think you are? The once very stereotypical ‘technical student’ or ‘STEM employee’ is nowadays way more diverse, but do all these different personalities feel welcome in our TU/e community? With documentary maker, critical thinker, and activist Sunny Bergman, we will discuss her work in which stereotypes and judging ‘the other’ are a regular focus. She invites you to take a critical look at your own views and biases towards your peers. Together we will explore how to put an open attitude into practice.
This program is jointly organized by TINT and Studium Generale.
Take a break and enjoy a guided meditation to help you focus for exams!

Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.
All people, all over the world experience love.
However, not everyone treats it in the same way.
Cultures have different traditions and habits around the topic of love.
What is unique about your culture’s way of loving?
Do you maybe struggle with different perceptions on love?
Can you be yourself and love the way you want?
Does long-distance pose a challenge?
TINT in collaboration with Cosmos, brings you an event to explore how love is interpreted across the globe, to dive into how to communicate about your needs and wishes, and how to be less confused with different conceptions!
Love is taken on its broader sense, so it can be romantic relationships but also friendships and family ties!
Don’t forget to bring your own (anonymous) questions, as we also want to hear what’s on your mind.
This event is part of the Dutch Happiness Week 2023, an initiative founded by Fontys University & Parktheater Eindhoven, that aims to raise awareness and promote happiness by collaborating with several partners for a week full of inspiring activities. Find the programe here.

When was the last time you stopped to reflect about your life?
How is everything going? What is your next step?
The workshop ‘Plan(t) your future’ aims to give that moment to reflect about your life with a nature metaphor: to think about your life as a tree. Weird?! Just trust TINT ;)
Humans are living beings like trees, so to grow tall and strong, we all need roots like the past experiences and relationships that made who we are now. While growing, a tree can be shaped by pruning to let the branches grow into the sky. In the same way, the choices that we make in our present moment influence our direction towards the future.
Personal growth is a process influenced by your past, that you control in your present, to achieve your dreams in the future. For this whole process you can count with the smooth guidance of TINT life coach, Margit van Tuijl, every step of the way.
Join this workshop and plan(t) the next steps for your future.

Life stories can take us to places, situations and emotions that we have never imagined before...
And we love that!

Popular wisdom says that time and good friends are two things that become more valuable the older you get.
Maybe you feel that you have already some great friends; or you might have met some very interesting people at University that you would like to become closer with; or you are still looking for some deeper connections in your life.
No matter the scenario, friendships and a good social network are a very important part of our lives to have fun, make great memories, open our horizons, and support us in blue days.
But when was the last time that you reflected on your relationships?
How to preserve those friendships that were left in your home town?
How to create new lasting friendships at University?
Our relationships sometimes are taken for granted in the middle of our busy lives, in this workshop TINT Life coach, Margit van Tuijl, will guide you through a reflection moment about the people in your life, your social needs and which steps you can take to have the social life you truly want.
“Conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative.”
TINT & Cosmos agree with the old writer :P
Are you already tired of the same questions?
What’s your study? Where are you from? What do you think about Eindhoven so far?
What to ask beyond the obvious?
Friendships and a good social network are a big part of our lives, especially during University times. However, meeting new people can sometimes be challenging although very exciting.
For that reason, TINT & Cosmos join forces to bring you “Strike Up the Conversation”, a fun evening to meet other freshmen or the old wolves of Eindhoven in a different way.
The life coach Laura Curta will share all about the art of having an interesting conversation. Enjoy useful tips & tricks on how to start a conversation easily, even if you are a bit shy, and how to get to know people beyond the surface.
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.
Both advanced meditation practitioners and beginners are welcome!

Some people have experienced truly amazing adventures that inspire us to believe that our wildest dreams may be possible.
Others have overcome such tough moments that prompt us to put our lives into perspective and feel more grateful for what we have.
Others have just challenged the odds and enjoyed the serendipity of life.
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.
Can you recall a thing you acomplished you were very proud of?
Do you have a skill/trait you really like about yourself?
Do you know what others admire in you?
I'm sure you can think of some things, and that's great!
But sometimes, it's needed to get a little reminder that you are a great human being!
Being happy with yourself is a challenge for everyone sometimes.
In this event we get together to reflect and support each other in taking the next steps in your self-love journey. Join us, and let's go on the ride!
This event contains a new format, where our coaches Laura Curta and Margit van Tuijl, will guide you through exercises that challenge you to reflect and learn by doing them and discussing them with your fellow participants.

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.
Do you often feel that most people are having a better time in uni than you?
More parties? Adventures? Flings? Travels? Friends?
Do you find yourself saying ‘Yes’ to everything when you rather want to have some rest from your busy schedule?
Do you think that by the time you are 25, you should have done a bunch of stuff and time is not on your side?
Maybe then you might be feeling some FOMO: ‘Fear of missing out’!?
No worries, most of us have experienced it especially after these years of pandemic.
But how to avoid this dissatisfaction about our lives to control us?
Is there a way to change these feelings around?
Yes, there is!
And the life coaches Margit van Tuijl & Laura Curta are going to tell you their secret on how to do it.
Explore the reasons behind these thought processes, learn tools to deal with these feelings and create your mantra to balance your mind, heart and body with your present life!
"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."

‘The Power of Vulnerability’ by Marjan van Ganzenwinkel, Communication Expert & Recruitment Manager

Our society faces many challenges. Climate change, inequality, racism, poverty, polarization, anti-Semitism, and Islamophobia are major issues that concern us all. How can we shape a society where every person matters? How can we build a shared future with the lessons from the past?

We organize an 'exposure weekend' and a 'museum lab' for a maximum of 30 students from Eindhoven, Maastricht and Antwerp. During this exposure weekend you will receive lots of impressions to get you started.
You will also get to know the other participants and learn to work with a diverse group of students.
Part of the Maastricht exposure day is the exhibition 'Survivors - Faces of Life after the Holocaust' by Martin Schöller. In addition to visiting the exhibition, we will organize lectures, watch documentaries, take city walks and much more. Both in Maastricht and the next day in Antwerp.
With all of the information from the exhibition weekend, we organize a ‘museumlab’ in which you process your impressions in a joint production.

Participation is subsidized (and is therefore free for you!)
We look forward to meeting you!
During the pandemic, chatting with friends and having discussions moved to the online world. Having true human contact seemed threatened. When was the last time you had an attentive, in-depth, and personal conversation? Unfortunately, we usually take far too little time for such things. So, grab your chance now and join this evening full of inspiring conversations with fellow students and others at the TU/e!
Meet new people and listen to each other's personal stories, insights, and ideas. Every conversation will be be a unique experience. After all, everyone has a special story to tell. All conversations are centered on a selected theme, and this year’s pick is: Courage to connect.
UPDATE: You can only join this edition online via MS Teams due to recent Corona measures.
Also, you can choose to participate in either a Dutch or English conversation.
Number of participants is limited, so registration is required until 10:00 AM on Wednesday, 1 December
Courage to connect
Starting a conversation and connecting with others can sometimes be challenging.
For example, the pandemic forced us to only connect digitally, language differences can pose intangible barriers to engaging in conversation and understanding each other, and cultural backgrounds can provide different meanings to the same sentence or behaviors.
For all these reasons, making a connection with other people can often take some courage. You are required to step out of your comfort zone. Consider the courage it takes to make new friends at university, to dive in deep conversations with students from other countries, or to discuss a topic in which ideals and beliefs might collide. Connecting with others can be a dare to show your vulnerabilities. To challenge your knowledge and beliefs. But if you take that step, you'll notice that it broadens your horizon, you find new inspiration and you enjoy the new connections. By developing the courage to connect, you will discover the hero inside you who is connected to the world.
The conversation will be structured around the four steps of the ‘dialogue’ framework:
You will participate in a conversation with a group of 4 participants (max.) under the guidance of a facilitator. You will experience what it means to listen carefully to the personal story of others and to be able to tell your story without being interrupted. It is an evening for people who are open minded and curious about other people’s perspectives.
Starting and ending times
The event will begin at 7:30 PM, so make sure you have entered the Auditorium hall (offline) or the MS Teams meeting (online) by 7:15 PM at the latest.
If you participate online, you will receive an email with a link to the MS Teams videocall meeting prior to the event. The conversation will end at 10:00 PM at the latest.
If you participate, we assume that you will be present for the entire evening.
Dutch or English conversation
It is possible to participate in either a Dutch or English conversation. Only participate in a Dutch-language conversation if you are comfortable and fluent in speaking Dutch. Please do not use this evening as a language course. Prior to the event, you will receive an email in which you can indicate whether you prefer to participate in a Dutch or English conversation.
UN Sustainable Development Goals
Since 2021, Eindhoven in Dialoog has focused its mission and vision on United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These 17 goals, agreed upon in 2015, have been defined to safeguard a sustainable future for current and future generations, and have been linked to an ambitious plan of action. For the Dialogue as a method for inspiring conversations, the SDGs provide interesting, meaningful but also necessary themes and subjects to explore.
This year’s theme “Courage to Connect” is aligned with goal #17: Partnerships. This SDG emphasises the opportunity to connect to people, ideas, organizations, and goals, to find inspiration and create a meaningful future together.
This event is a joint initiative of TINT, Eindhoven in Dialoog and Studium Generale TU/e.
Perfectionism. It can be a blessing but also a huge burden.
You may excel in your studies and/or other things you do, but often with quite some stress and anxiety. But, did you know that there are also other ways to handle perfectionism?

TINT and Enter the Now are hosting a special edition of the Mindfulness Break for the Vitality Week 2021.
As the first quartile of this academic year proceeds, TINT focuses its events on deeper and deeper connections. We started with making the first contact and making friends, but now it is time to focus on one of the most mythical and deep connections there is, love.
Love is incredibly complex and knows many forms and faces.
Are you curious to learn more about this deepest connection?
Would you like to gain insights into how to ignite and maintain it?
Do you have personal questions you would like to have answered?
Then, this love lessons event is for you!
This event is perfect for all students who are interested to learn about love and the event will be insightful for any relationship status and sexual orientation.
The evening is filled with interesting theories offered by Love Doctor Inge van de Vorst and TINT life coach Margit van Tuijl .
But there is also space to (anonymously) ask questions yourself and to practice with the verbs of love. What those verbs are, you will learn at the event!
Some people have experienced truly amazing adventures that can inspire our wildest dreams to be possible.
Others have faced and overcome tough hurdles that prompt us to put our lives in perspective and feel more grateful for what we have.
Others have just challenged the odds and enjoyed the serendipity of life.
Life stories can take us to places, situations and emotions, that we have never imagined before...
And we love that!
The event “Open Stories” is an evening to inspire our TU/e community to take more time to listen to the real stories around us.
For that, we have chosen some captivating “human books” ready to share their life stories with you in an intimate conversation. You can expect heartening, raw and honest stories that will broaden your horizons.
This event is part of the TU/e Diversity Week 2021 in collaboration with TINT and Groep-één.
Friendships and a good social network are a big part of our lives, especially during University times. However, meeting new people can sometimes be a scary yet an exciting adventure.
For that reason, TINT & Cosmos join forces to bring you “First Connections”, a fun and insightful evening to meet other freshmen or the old wolves of Eindhoven in a different way.
The life coaches Margit van Tuijl and Laura Curta will share all about the art of connection-making.
Enjoy useful tips & tricks on how to start a conversation easily, even if you are a bit shy, and how to make your friendships more meaningful by building deeper connections with others.
Curious? Grab your friends or come alone, and enjoy meeting plenty of interesting people!
Would you like to kickstart the new academic year by balancing yourself on a board?
After the nice chaos of intro or coming back to University, TINT in collaboration with the SUP Coach, Paula van Loon, is giving you a break from all of that to reconnect with yourself in the middle of nature.
For about 2 hours, you can try out Stand Up Paddling with a small group of 7 people at the TU/e Dommel to enjoy the University from a new perspective.
The session starts with a set of instructions, then the group gets on the water (not in!) with a SUP board and after finding the physical balance with the standup paddling technique the participants are invited to also find the mental balance with mindfulness exercises.
Safety is very important and for that reason, TINT requires everyone who signs up to be ABLE TO SWIM. It is unlikely to fall in the water but better safe than sorry!
September can be tricky weather-wise. We all hope for a beautiful day but to manage expectations, TINT would like to inform the participants in advance:
- SUP Coach reserves the right to cancel the workshop in case of adverse unsafe weather with full-ticket reimbursement.
- Dress in layers so you can adapt to all temperatures (e.g. light layer + thermo layer or a wetsuit).
- Bring water shoes or shoes you don't mind getting dirty in case you get muddy going on/off the SUP board. Barefoot is not advisable due to the cold water.
- Preferably bring a change of clothes in case you get wet or dirty.
THE PILOT COURSE IS FULL. FOLLOW TINT ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR SIGN UP FOR THE NEWSLETTER TO STAY UPDATED

For most of us, the ongoing world-wide pandemic has added an increasing amount of stress to our daily lives. Mindfulness can help in coping with stress and building resilience. Have you always been curious about what mindfulness can do for you? If not, give it a try for a couple of weeks! Do you struggle to stay motivated during this #stayhome period? Start your day with us, and we can support you to reduce your stress and increase your focus and motivation.
Together, PROOF, Enter the Now, and TINT have developed a mindfulness program for everyone. Though the sessions are meant as an introduction to mindfulness for beginners, to help you try out mindfulness and make practice a regularity, anyone at TU/e is welcome to join. The program will help you start your day more grounded and focused.
A new pilot has started with a 5 week course for smaller groups which come together online once a week. Each session consists of a relaxed start and a mindfulness meditation exercise of about 10 minutes. In the end, there will always be room for sharing tips, tricks, and experiences that can inspire you to have a relaxed and productive working day.
Meet our mindfulness guides Dan & Nuriye
Nuriye, you might already know as a TINT event organizer. She is a third-year Bachelor student at Applied Physics. She discovered mindfulness through yoga, when she was still in high school. When she started university, this 'skill' became even more relevant. Suddenly, the world demands so much more from you. She found the Tuesday Mindfulness Breaks by TINT and Enter the Now, now she also guides this more advanced session as well.
Dan is a second-year student who is active in Enter the Now, our campus’s association involved in creating a community around consciousness, spirituality and mindfulness. He began his journey when he used it as a tool to help deal with personal circumstances that were affecting him emotionally.
Are you curious about mindfulness, but committing to it on your own is a challenge? Then the 5 week course is a good way to get you started and keep you motivated!
Let's start the conversation and make the TU/e community stronger!
In the past years, there has been an increasing interest and willingness to have more courageous conversations about systemic racism. And TINT would like to start such a conversation with the TU/e community as well!
This event aims to create a place as safe as possible, where you, a TU/e student or employee who has experienced racism yourself, feel comfortable to share your experiences, learn from each other, and deconstruct misunderstandings.
To help with that, TINT counts on the expertise of Kaylee Rosalina, Education & Policy Advisor, who will provide us with important foundations for a constructive dialogue about systemic racism.
If you are a person of color (POC), you have a multicultural background, or you are interested to learn more, join us for an offline evening that will strengthen our TU/e community!
Kaylee Rosalina is an educationalist from Eindhoven with a focus on inclusion and social justice. In her work, she combines scientific knowledge with insights from practice. As an educationalist, she likes to work with boards and teacher teams to ensure that educational institutions and government agencies, among others, (start) working for a world in which everyone is given their due.

Do you want an answer to the most elementary question of human life that is 'Who am I'?
Do you want to have more confidence in yourself and create a vision for your future?
Do you want to know what brings people together at a profound and meaningful level?
TINT is giving you that opportunity!
This workshop aims to boost your confidence in who you are, where do you want to go in your future and how to get inspired by meaningful conversations with people surrounding you!
You will be defining a vision for your (future) self, but also learn how this vision supports you to make
better decisions and to comfortably connect with others.
Confidence is key.
Today we travel faster than ever and further than ever. At the same time, the expectations placed on our shoulders are getting heavier. When faced with so many expectations and so many options, the most important question becomes: "Who am I?". Being confident in your identity will help you clarify your future goals, your future decisions, and the way you live. The same question becomes relevant when cultures and different beliefs come together. Looking beyond the appearances fosters understanding so that people come together with an open mind and willing to communicate at a deeper level.
Has your curiosity awakened?
Then, "Who will I become?" is a workshop just for you!
When you sign up for this workshop, you will also receive a workbook filled with inspiration, but we will leave the exact details as a surprise.
TINT and Enter the Now are hosting online guided meditations so you can start, explore or deepen your mindfulness skills within a lively community no matter where you are.
Join us for a meditation session during lunchtime (12:40-13:20) to inspire you for a productive study time and a life focused on the present moment. 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.
Both advanced meditation practitioners and beginners are welcome! The meditation is guided by TINT or Enter the Now and will take about 15-20 minutes. Next to the meditation, there is plenty of time to share and connect within the group.

TINT and WISE (Women in Science Eindhoven) are joining forces again to prepare an inspiring evening marking the 6th United Nations’ International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
Join us online on February 10th 2020, from 19:00-21:00, to celebrate girls and women in science in Eindhoven, listen to amazing speakers and meet inspiring people.
This year’s theme: “Growing towards a female role model”.
This event explores the journey from a high school student towards a full professor.
We focus on three stages: choosing a STEM University track, becoming a PhD candidate and applying for a Tenure Track. Each stage is introduced by an interesting speaker followed by a sharing moment.
This event is an opportunity to honour the increasing contribution of female scientists in technical fields and, also, a place to share personal stories and sources of inspiration by role models in the study and career choices.
We welcome ALL colleagues and students of Eindhoven to join us in celebrating Women in Science in Eindhoven!
Listen to the podcast below full of girl power.
New Academic Year, New weekly Mindfulness Break series.
Do you want to understand how you are more than your physical appearance and your upbringing?
Are you interested in finding out how your identity can connect you with others in a profound and meaningful way?
'Finding Common Ground' is a workshop by life coach & personal development coach Laura Curta, about self-determination and positive regard.
Today we travel faster than ever and further than ever. At the same time, expectations placed on our shoulders are getting bigger. When faced with so many expectations and so many options, the most important question to answer becomes: "Who am I?". That answer will help you clarify your future goals, your future decisions, and the way you live. The same question becomes relevant when cultures and different beliefs come together. Looking beyond the appearances not only creates inclusiveness, but it also flattens conflicts. It fosters understanding so that people come together with an open mind and willing to communicate at a deeper level.
Join this event to get to know yourself better, participate in a meaningful conversation about the power one has to build their own identity,
and allow yourself to be inspired.
Self-Leadership can be defined as having an idea of who you are, what you can do and where you want to go. But, how to find all this deep knowledge about ourselves? Let TINT help you out with that! During an informal evening, the participants will go through different exercises that will shed the light about the core values that guide their lives. TINT life coach, Margit van Tuijl, and the international life coach, Mymza Wever, will help to incorporate those values in the daily life and future dreams.
Do you want to take the lead of your life?! Yes! Then, this workshop is for you!

No registration needed!
Just join the online session by the Microsoft Teams Link below.
Do you sometimes long for a deeper connection with others around you?
Do you wish to have more time to connect with yourself and your dreams?
Do you want to understand and express your feelings in a more effective way?
If this year has taught us anything is that humans crave for social contact and thrive by connecting with each other. But what about connecting with ourselves? Do you take the time to look inside and accept what you are feeling with no judgement?
That’s tricky, right? Well, you are not alone in this!
An important tool that helps us acknowledge our feelings, understand what their role is and, most importantly, create the trust we need to express ourselves in a vulnerable way is non-violent communication.
During this workshop, we will explore the basics of non-violent communication by engaging with different practical exercises. The goal is to provide a safe space for the full range of emotions, to connect with one another, and to learn a few tools that will help you connect with others in a more authentic way.
Would you like to find balance in life?
Nowadays we spend a lot of time on our computer, tablet or phone. Instead of moving outdoors, we spend a lot of our time inside. This has its effects. We get easily overwhelmed, distracted, and tired.
Stand Up Paddling (SUP in short) can help you to:
That is why TINT organizes again a Supcoach workshop!
For about 2 hours you can be Supping with a group of 4-6 people while being guided into relaxation with mindfulness and meditation exercises. The session starts with instructions, then we get on the water (not in!) and after finding your physical balance with the stand up paddling technique, we will find also mental balance with some mindfulness :)
You will be more relaxed and leave with a clear head at the end of the session, we promise!

Date: Wednesday, 9th September 2020.
Time: meeting at 16:45, departing on your SUP trip at 17:00.
Location: Eeuwsel, Dutmalapad at TUe Eindhoven.
Safety is important, that is why we require everyone who signs up to be ABLE TO SWIM. It is unlikely to fall in the water but better safe than sorry!
Are you really as open-minded as you think you are?
The once very stereotypical ‘technical student’ or ‘STEM employee’ is nowadays way more diverse, but do all these different personalities feel welcome in our TU/e community?
With documentary maker, critical thinker, and activist Sunny Bergman, we will discuss her work in which stereotypes and judging ‘the other’ are a regular focus. She invites you to take a critical look at your own views and biases towards your peers.
Together we will explore how to put an open attitude into practice.

This program is jointly organized by TINT and Studium Generale.
