Inspiration Workshop

‘My experience of the workshop?

Relief, the opportunity to express your thoughts and heart!

While the other persons in the group are new to you, the familiar and safe atmosphere helps you release the burden you felt before. Even online!

It helps to talk about what the future is going to look like, to collect my thoughts and focus on what I am learning from this.

You can speak freely, and you are urged to start your personal learning process (which really makes you grow).

Taking charge of yourself, with a little push by Motiv / Studentenpastoraat010 / Rapenburg100. I really enjoyed it.’

‘The inspiration workshop showed me that no one’s life remains unaffected by social distancing.

Exchanging personal experiences gave me the opportunity to learn how others – outside my personal networks – live with these challenges.’

Online Workshop

Living through uncertainty and disorientation – philosophical insights for daily practice

We all need a sense of where we are going in life, and what is our purpose.

Normally we take this for granted, but the world in this Corona era has changed.

Daily routines need to be (re)found, many dear ones are at a distance, and it may be difficult to keep the motivation.

Much of our sense of orientation has become uncertain.

A crisis is disturbing, yet it can be productive as well.

In this course we discuss useful philosophical insights for living through this period.

You will learn about the different phases of a crisis, and how to be open to new perspectives.

Letting go of old expectations allows us to find new motivations, which will be valuable long after the crisis.

Thursday: 12:00 – 13:00

Host: Motiv Staff

Coffee with Students

Every Thursday at 12 am (-1 pm) we will open a zoom meeting for students and PhD’s who just want to share their coffee moment.

How are you doing today? That is the starting question.

You come and quit whenever you like! If you’re planning to join:, we will invite you to the meeting.

Student board workshop

looking back and forward.

It has been a very interesting year!

Your board probably managed through the corona crisis and you are still there.

It may be good to sit together for a few hours in a friendly and quiet environment and talk about your personal experiences and the experiences of the whole team.

In order to get the most out of this year and the crisis we were (are) all in.

What do you want to pass on to the next board, what makes you proud?

We work on demand and will shape the workshop with you.
