The 2012 Meditation Marathon is a fundraising event designed to build community, deepen our meditation practice, and bring energy and warmth to our Sangha, in addition to raising money for a very worthy cause.

Our team of meditators will raise funds to support vital endeavors like:

  • maintaining and caring for our beautiful Buddhist center
  • making updates and upgrades to the facility
  • exploring new opportunities for classes, retreats, and workshops
  • supporting center staff
  • providing financial assistance to those of limited means who would like to attend events
  • expanding the possibilities for our community to spread the Dharma and help others to transform their lives

Just think: one Marathoner with ten donors who contribute $20 apiece will raise $200 for Aryaloka! And everyone who raises at least $100 will receive a free, customized Meditation Marathon t-shirt to wear with pride!

    Been hearing wonderful stories about how this marathon has benefited people's meditation practice! And look at all the money we've raised! In this final sprint to the finish line, I'd suggest sending out a "gentle reminder" to your folks. A lack of response doesn't necessarily mean a "no", but may be "I forgot". Hope to see you all at the celebration on Saturday. Thanks so much for all your effort for such a worthy cause. Saddhu marathoners!!!

    15 Marathoners on our team now, and we're a quarter of the way to our goal! Congratulations to our participants! Only two weeks to go until the official starting line. Time to pull out all the stops and make that final push for support before the event begins!

    I've sent out some personalized emails to OM who said they would donate, but not be a marathoner today. Will send out more to a bigger cirlced tonight. The competitive juices are starting to run...

    Hey folks, I'm offering Marathon participants the opportunity to join in the yoga classes at Aryaloka for free during the Marathon week. Regular class is Wed 5:30-6:30, a gentler class is Friday 4-5.
