TabooDana

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.

Our Belief

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.

What people say about Us

It was very nice meeting you and the lovely ladies on Saturday. I especially liked the way the session was conducted. The rounds of social humour kind of cemented the thing together, adding the fun element. The ambiance too made people feel at ease, which helped them cross their internal barriers. It would be interesting to see how the topic unfolds, if it’s a mixed group of men and women, boys and girls

-Swati

It was a new concept for me, I had never been to one before. Ofcourse, I had attended gatherings where such games were played but not a gathering where ‘conversation’ was given so much of importance. Well, what I feel is, in today’s chaotic and busy world that we live in, we have stopped having coversations. Be it on any topic, but talking by letting go of judgements and prejudices can be so helpful in many ways.

-Tripti

About the Listening Circle last evening, was a nicely crafted talk which made women comfortable. Though I went with the flow, as I already mentioned, am not open to the discussions, never have been. Maybe I am not only old school but you can categorise me as being pre historic! The ambience created was interesting while being compassionate and understanding all the time. Maybe women will slowly open up to identify their feelings better and segregate them. Let the Durga in every woman be a symbol of power in all the things that manifests.
