Spectrum Foundation
Being a part of Spectrum is like walking into a room that is filled with a cozy warmth, but which also exudes a subtle mystery that touches something deep within you. It's finding yourself home in a room full of strangers, and having meaningful and laughter-filled conversations until dawn. Whether it's yoga or meditation, Taizé or philosophy; Spectrum has a place for all of you: body, mind and spirit
