Rob van Waarde, Spiritual counsellor, Studentenpastoraat 010
Open to all students, regardless of your religious or secular background
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 Covid-era has changed. Daily routines need to be refound, many dear ones are at a distance, and it may be difficult to keep our motivation. Much of our sense of orientation has become uncertain. While these times are difficult to live through, they may also teach you about what is most important to you.
The best investment in yourself is taking care of your spiritual wellbeing. Finding your motivation, dealing with disappointments or loss contributes to personal leadership. This will remain valuable long after. Awareness of your personal inspiration helps you select a future employer worth your talent.
What participants to our activities say: ‘You can speak freely. You are urged to start your personal learning process, which really makes you grow. Taking charge of yourself … I really enjoyed it’

Team Training (for boards or committees)
What drives you personally and as a team? Learning to think and act as a team is an asset for life. You will learn how to deal with personal differences and use them to grow collectively. How do you respond wisely to disappointment or incapacity? Team trainings are always customized. Depending on your demand we will focus on, for instance, communication, conflict management or vision development.
Meditation: use an app, or join our live group
Practice spiritual wellbeing by meditation apps, e.g. the Insight Timer app, which offers exercises from a range of religious backgrounds, and you can meditate together with friends online
For personal (online) meditation you can join a session four times a week: Sunday 6pm and Monday 9.30am (both English), Wednesday 8pm and Thursday 9.30am (both Dutch). Enrol via info@Rapenburg100.nl. A session consists of a short introduction, a meditation of 20-25 minutes, and the opportunity to chat afterwards. No experience required.
What participants say about us
‘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.’
‘The workshop makes you aware of patterns in your behaviour and in society. In a small group you understand one anothers’ challenges, and you learn insights that help you in your personal situation. The conversation facilitator makes analyses and connections to increase the outcome.’
‘My experience of the Inspiration 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 Studentenpastoraat010. I really enjoyed it.’
