DANCE was initiated in early 2013 by a group of Dharma teachers, staff and friends of Gaia House – as a forum for the wider sangha to explore what might be possible in bringing Dharma responses to the climate crisis.

This group of co-founders continues to generate projects and share them here and on the Facebook page, but the core intention is to support creative ideas and initiatives, as well as perspectives, from a much broader base. Our invitation, then, is for you to connect not with only with us, but also with others, and to take action in whatever ways inspire and make sense to you. You may even want to start up a DANCE group in your local area – and please do contact us if you would like to post an event on this website. By sharing and working together, we can encourage, support and inspire each other in this great and beautiful heart-work of our times. We can make a difference.

    Hi friends, Just wondering if you´re aware of Buddhist Action Month (June every year) a Network of Buddhist Organisations UK initiative centred on Buddhist actions around climate change awareness but also encouraging Buddhist social action of any kind. This year it´s spreading into Europe via the European Buddhist Union.

    You can read about it on the NBO website: http://www.nbo.org.uk/get-involved/projects-campaigns/buddhist-action-month/

    and follow it on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/BuddhistActionMonth2015?ref=hl

    Dear Munisha,

    thanks for letting us know
    and yes, we are aware of the Buddhist Action Month.
    We have been in contact with NBO regarding our 2. Sanghaseva service retreat at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) in Mid-Wales in June.

    Be well,
