EIOS HACKATHOn | June to September | 18:00 - 21:00

Over these 8 intensive weeks, eight wellbeing practitioners are your partners and guides on your journey to wellbeing. 

Connect with your ultimate purpose and ignite your passion to achieve the ultimate vision of your life, career, wellbeing and relationships. 

1 journey. 8 weeks. 8 modules. 8 human behavior experts. 1 quest: become a #WellbeingChampion. 1 mission: #MakeWellbeingGoViral.

Week 1: Clean Up Week

Have you ever been hurt in your life? Do you sometimes feel like your whole body is crying? Do you know how to overcome fear, doubt, and discouragement?

In this module we will share a technique that will help you learn to uncover the source of unexplainable pains, sensations and emotions (psychosomatic illnesses). This will be the first step to set you forth on the path of effective handling for these conditions.

Week 2: Discovery Week

Are you often feeling exhausted? Do you sometimes lack the energy to even last the day? The answer may be, literally, in your heart. 

Believe it or not, your heart is not just a pump; it is directly relevant to business performance and results. We now have empirical evidence that demonstrates the connection between Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and performance. A 24-hour HRV assessment can reveal how much energy your have and whether your energy is being used efficiently or being drained. In this module, we’ll learn how to recognize subtle stress signals before they become chronic; powerful techniques to boost performance, resilience and quality of life; as well as how to be less reactive and maintain clarity under pressure.

Week 3: Preparation Week

Fulfillment is a right and not a privilege, and nothing gives a person inner fulfillment and peace like a distinct understanding of where they are going. Finding fulfillment in life starts with understanding exactly WHY we do what we do. More than ever, people are wanting more out of work than money. We want more meaning and more purpose. We want to be able to see how our contribution to the workplace or to the world makes a difference.


Get to the bottom of the big questions everyone asks themselves: Why am I here? What am I here to do? In this module we reveal six powerful exercises to help you discover and live your purpose.

Week 4: Competence Week

By now, you will have learned:

– to face yourself and understand your unconscious drives,

– to listen to your feelings and work from your heart

– to find your purpose in life 

You are ready to put all that you have learned into practice. In this module we will take you to the next level and help you achieve measurable results by identifying and defying any and all thoughts and beliefs that might be prolonging your distress or anxiety, or standing in the way of your success and wellbeing.

Week 5: Embodiment Week

How do you create a successful and meaningful project, venture or life? And how do you sustain generative states throughout life? Generative Leadership involves achieving outcomes that are completely new. The core focus is creativity. 

Creativity is the cornerstone of innovation and the hallmark of a self-actualized person. This module will help you unleash that.

Week 6: Discipline Week

By now you know what you want, you feel empowered and energized to put it all into practice; you have the tools, the know-how, the enthusiasm and the energy to turn your life around. How do you sustain this state?

This module will help you achieve and sustain clarity about what is important to you and a deeper understanding of the world around you. We will help you clear away the trivia and needless worries about unimportant things, nurture passion for your work and compassion for others, and develop the ability to empower the people in your around you.

Week 7: Wisdom Week

Have you been to more personal development workshops than you can count? Are you making measurable progress? 

The eiOS is not only unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, it offers you measurable oversight of your progress. This module is a cutting edge assessment (used in forensics). Here we will measure your Emotional Intelligence (EQ), and identify your potential for emotional health, and psychological wellbeing, making sure that you don’t only FEEL better, but also see measurable effects. 

Week 8: Integration Week

On our final day together, we will lock in our new purpose and empowerment. 


Technology has made the world we live in global and exponential. Yet, our brain evolved in a way that is linear and that is local. And this dissonance has measurable consequences on our wellbeing. 

The personal crisis has become a contagion. And this crisis is not only felt on an individual level. We are feeling it on a collective, and organizational level too.  


The current wellbeing landscape

If you often ask yourself: “How should I live my life in way that I can safeguard my future physical, mental and social wellbeing?” you are not alone! Uncertainty about an answer to this question permeates all layers of our society: 

  • Students: 44% of students don’t know what they want to do after graduation
  • Employees: 375M employees will need a career switch by 2030 due to automation
  • Remote workers: In the new economy, people have to juggle various concepts of “remote working” and “flexitime” that are seemingly presenting new opportunities for prosperity, but are in reality undermining emotional and psychological wellbeing. The ‘vertigo of freedom’ is the paralysis of too much possibility and gives rise to an epidemic of depression and anxiety
  • Entrepreneurs: 90% of startups fail
  • 45-plusers: 70% of the entire unemployed population in the Netherlands falls into the 45-plus age group category

Automation will continue to bring big shifts to the world of work, as AI and robotics change or replace some jobs, while others are created. These changes in the external environment threaten our internal body milieu. Uncertainty gives rise to stress.

“I have zero motivation to go to work!” 

87% of people in the world are in a state of persistent lack of interest and disengagement. We encounter difficulty with completing projects, feel a sense of hopelessness, lack desire and experience reduced levels of energy. Our creativity and concentration are challenged. 

In clinical psychology, the state when a number of symptoms, such as the ones listed above, are present at the same time for a period of more than several weeks and interfere with a person’s ability to optimally perform his or her day-to-day activities is diagnosed as a “disorder.” Disengagement is a global disorder. 

When we’re disengaged, we are cut off from our motivation. When we continue to exert ourselves in spite of how we really feel, we’re undermining our own wellbeing.

1MLN people in the Netherlands experience burnout every year.

As a result of these stressors – coaching is the 2ND fastest growing industry. There are currently 100k Wellbeing Practitioners in the Netherlands. But, there’s only so much one practitioner can do in a day.
