Welcome to Spectrum

Flourish in diversity

Happy April, Dear Ones!!! 😀

We hope you had a good Easter in Nature, with/without our beloved (human) beings, abroad or around Wagenigen.

In April almost everything around us is manifestly awakened: flowers are blooming and “dressed up” with their most beautiful colours, bumblebees are pollinating them, all the diverse perfumes from the earth pierce even more through our noses, animals start coupling, and us… Are we awakening/awakened to All This Beauty around us and within us?

Look at what Dr. Malcom Sayer (Robin Williams) said about being awakened in our human spirit in a movie that we recommend you watching: “Awakenings” (1990). He told:

“The human spirit is more powerful than any drug..it needs to be nourished with: work, play, friendship, family.”

Can you joyfully smile at the human beings you meet at the University or around the streets?
Can you still be amazed by the rising up and setting of the Sun that each days dies and is born again for us?
Can you experience the immense gratitude of walking on this Earth, kissing it with each of your footsteps?
Are you nurturing your human spirit with fun activities, friendship and family?

We hope that our activities this month will awaken you to all that it is here, now, around you, within you, and through you, with a compassionate, attentive, and kind glance at everything/everyone! Coming to our monthly activities, in chronological order we will have:
