TabooDana emerged from the need to have an environment, a place and a circle where one can be open and free. Where we can talk, listen and discuss about anything and everything which is considered “Taboo”. When we are in such a safe place, it leads to our growth and we emerge as a completely powerful person who is not consumed by power and still has empathy, a “Dana”.
Dana(Day-Na) is a word itself, created to define awesome people.
When we are growing up, there are a lot of things which we do and talk about in our innocence. At times because they sound funny, at times because someone said don’t do it and at times because they make us feel grown up. Gradually, we start forming perceptions about what is right and what is wrong, what is out of the ordinary and goes against the norm.This can be a practice, a culture, or a person or a thing. We believe in providing a place where anyone can express, discuss, vent about anything which is a Taboo. Our mission is to invest time, energy and money in building a society which is excepting to the exceptions. We do that, by creating programs and holding listening circles, providing necessary resources.
