09:30 - 10:00 | Monday Morning Meditation
by Petra Kormendy | Innbetween, Capucijnenstraat 122
Let's start the week together in meditation. It is a good way to be present, ready, focused, and loving. It is half an hour of guided meditation and relaxation with Petra in which the experience of meditation is the most important.
Petra Körmendy has been teaching meditation for more than 10 years, she is trained in different meditation traditions, such as vipassana, Sufi, zen, mantra, kriya, tantra, and several Christian meditation techniques. She teaches basics of enabling your heart to feel, your mind to silence, and your whole being to open.
Because of the vulnerable nature of practising meditation, and thus in the interest of everyone attending, we like to ask you to join on time. In case you happen to be late, please simply join the next meditation on Wednesday at 12.00.

by UM SPORTS |University Sports Centre P. Debyeplein 15
Do you want to learn how to climb or just try it out once? This is your chance! During this workshop, you will be introduced to the physical as well as the mental challenges of climbing!
Among others, you will learn:
- The basics of safe climbing and securing
- How to safely secure yourself and your climbing partner
- To trust yourself, the material and your climbing partner
Climbing is a varied sport with physical challenges. In addition, there are mental challenges to overcome. For example, climbing can help you reduce or cope with fear of heights or trust/control issues. Therefore, this workshop is also a good opportunity to work on that.
At the beginning of the class, the instructors will ask you what your goal is, so they can focus on that goal.

15:00 - 17:00 | Speaking up
by Sex Matters |Inner City, Tapijn 11, room I0.011
We all come across discrimination. Whether it's directed at us or anyone else, unfortunately it's almost everywhere. Fortunately, you can do something about it yourself!
In the Speaking Up workshop, you will learn what counts as discrimination and harassment, why that is bad, and how you can effectively stand up for (or addressing) it to someone. We will go into sexist, racist, and homophobic comments and what it does to someone if these (sometimes seemingly innocent/small) comments are addressed to you.
You will learn to recognize these situations and how to respond to them. The result is that victims feel seen and supported and that harassment and discrimination are addressed.

by Sam van Broekhuijsen | UM city center: Grote Looiersstraat 17, Wellbeingroom (the Mindfulnest room)

19:00 - 20:30 | OPENING: Connecting in unthinkable extreme environments
Opening by Prof. Dr. Rianne Letschert & inspirational talk by Joseph Oubelkas | SBE Aula, Tongersestraat 53
President of Maastricht University Prof. Dr. Rianne Letschert will officially open the Wellbeing Week, followed by inspirational speaker Joseph Oubelkas.
Everyone has a story. That of Joseph Oubelkas (1980) is about dealing with adversity and change, about freedom of choice and perseverance. Joseph talks about always staying connected to yourself and with the world around you. This is always possible, regardless of circumstances, situation or environment.
At the age of 24, Joseph is wrongly convicted of drug smuggling. He is sentenced to 10 years in prison in Morocco. How does this affect you as a human being?
Joseph Oubelkas is an energetic speaker who inspires, moves and unites. He vividly shares the experience of his unjust imprisonment with passion, enthusiasm and even humour. Joseph takes you on a rollercoaster ride that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. This session will not only affect your reasoning but especially touch the heart. So it will have a real impact, and you will link your own challenges to Joseph's story.
These challenges may include:
- How do I motivate myself when the world around me is falling apart?
- What does it take to continue to believe in my personal values when those values are under daily threat: ‘Who am I and what do I stand for?
- How do I make the people around me feel like a team and how can I inspire others?
Attending his lecture will inspire ideas, thoughts and above all, positive energy!
