Recent National Events Inspire Meditation Marathon

Due to the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon; ricin-tainted letters sent to the president, a senator and a county judge; job furloughs and fiscal uncertainties; funding reductions in local and national programs; and debates over gun legislation, immigration reform and gender equality, the Meditation Museum of Silver Spring, Maryland is launching a month-long initiative entitled, “Meditation Marathon 13” which asks  everyone to Breathe, Believe, and Become our goodness as a country. The country is in need of reflection, silence, meaning, and personal power, more than ever before. This is essential to building a country that is a more peaceful and safe place.  On May 1, 2013, the National Meditation Museum will launch "Meditation Marathon 13," at the Meditation Museum, located at 8236 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, Maryland, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  There is no charge to the public, however, pre-registration is required.


Meditation Marathon 13” encourages everyone to calm their mind, empower their thoughts and enter into peace throughout the day.  “Sometimes we have to wonder, are some of the solutions hidden within this ancient practice of meditation or prayer?  Have we missed something where sages and prophets have been reminding us to pause more and look for the good in all?  That is what the Meditation Marathon 13 aims to remind us,” notes Sister Jenna, Director of the Meditation Museum. We have been hearing about the enormous benefits of meditation, yoga, silence and mantras, more and more, however, many of us grapple with silencing the noise in our minds. Emptying our minds is the hardest thing to do. 


There is a Meditation that says don't “empty” your mind but replace your mind with thoughts that inspire, motivate, create solutions, simplify situations and find the right response to challenging relationships.  Meditation Marathon 13 is all about engaging the nation in a 31-day practice of breathing in the good, believing you are good, and becoming good.  Maybe that's all it takes! Why not give it a try? Can you do it America?  We sure need some of those good vibes now more than ever!  Continued meditation practice reduces stress, creates clarity and a better knowing of ourselves; it even creates more happiness throughout the day and lays a foundation for a more peaceful world.
