Join meditators from many traditions to generate a deep, peaceful vibration that will lift your spirit and nourish your heart! At the same time, you will be contributing to offer a childhood to children in Romania, living in AMURTEL Family, a children’s home run by a meditating yogic nun!
Is this marathon only for experienced meditators capable of sitting for hours?
No – not at all! You do not have to be an expert in meditation and first-time newcomers to meditation are also welcome. There will be an optional free intro to breath work and mantra meditation before the marathon for newcomers to meditation.
How does it work?
Decide on an amount you want to donate per minute of meditation and challenge yourself to meditate from 10 to 100 minutes!
Enjoy the silence and peace of meditation for as long as you can, benefitting from the collective energy of the gathering. You may surprise yourself with a new personal record! There will a soft bell chime every 10 minutes. When you are ready to quietly leave and join the herbal tea and sweets outside, your meditation marathon achievement will be recorded!
At the end of the 100 minutes – we will celebrate and those who reach 100 minutes will receive a special gift of appreciation from AMURTEL Romania.
Who will be benefitted?
Your meditation will bring hope, safety, and love to eleven children aged 5-16 years old from the AMURTEL Family Children’s Home in Romania. These children come from situations of neglect and abuse and are placed in the care of AMURTEL Family by child-protection authorities.
The home is run by Didi Ananda Devapriya, a yogic nun and meditation instructor since 2001. Besides helping spiritual seekers to find deeper meaning, peace, and bliss through teaching yoga and meditation practices, Didi has dedicated her life to serving vulnerable children and youth. She has been in Romania for the past 14 years, running AMURTEL Romania (www.amurtel.ro), a non-profit serving neglected, abandoned and abused children.
