Introducing our new Peace in Action Toolkit

Creating a World of Love & Justice Beyond the Dance Circle

DUPNA is committed to serving our Dance circles, leaders, organizers, and dancers in a way that allows for deepened participation in this transformational time.

The Peace in Action Projects & Resources pages aspires to provide tools and information to guide ideas and efforts to create connections, sacred space, and spread peace through the arts and with the Dances of Universal Peace.

May these resources increase the work of compassion and peace and promote mutual respect and understanding among diverse groups in our communities!

We are really proud of this project and excited to share it with you. Please contact us if you have a project to share.


Mandala Peace Project

We give thanks to Helga Schleeh from Montreal, Canada for sharing the materials for her Mandala Peace Project which is focused into a one day workshop that brings together children and adults from diverse communities to create a beautiful art mandala, sing and dance together, and connect and learn about one another's traditions to foster mutual respect and understanding.
