Mandala Earth Story actually had many parents. It has been a shared dream with the many circles I have been invited to participate in for the last 5 years. Here's a few of the story circles I've helped out in.

KITES FOR PEACE was launched in July 2015 as a response to the killing of children in Gaza during the Israel-Hamas war. Inspired by the kites flown by Gaza children in 2011 to break the Guiness World Record, Kites for Peace was an action led by children to give voice to children calling for the end of armed conflict in their generation. Kites for Peace was endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet in November 2011. By December of 2015, we flew about 50,000 kites mostly from the Philippines together with other parts of the world for the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children and the 20th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
