基金會名稱由來 Dancing With The Elephant 名稱是由英文的諺語 elephant in the room 啟迪而來。希望所有的個人及家庭能轉化這隻阻塞自己及家庭內在連結的大象，透過一種更適合自己的生活方式，與我們的人生課題和諧共舞，得到深刻的幸福。 中文名稱 「舞象」 除了表達英文名稱的意思更諧音無相 （梵語： animitta ）。
Origin of Our Name The elephant in the room is an English idiom that refers to an obvious problem that people do not want to talk about. Through our programs, we hope to help families have congruent conversations to address the elephant in the room, learn to dance with the lessons of life, and be freed from suffering.
Aside from the allusion to this English metaphor, Dancing Elephant in Mandarin is a homophone for "animitta " in Sanskrit, which refers to seeking truth without perceptual attributes.
