Franck Raharinosy

Franck Raharinosy is a socially-driven entrepreneur and co-founder of the ping-pong social clubs, SPiN. Driven by curiosity, Franck has managed to build a life out of turning his passion and purpose into business ideas that span genres. Over the last few years Franck attended many Sound Meditation and started witnessing the benefits by really slowing down, feeling more present and grounded. Out of love, Franck decided to learn to guide Gong Meditation and share this gift with friends, family, larger groups, his own work team and people in need of whom he often offers it for free.
