Emily's 48h Marathon: 24h Meditating, 24h Painting

This year, for the meditation marathon, I am adding a second 24hour marathon to my first one.


My plan is to meditate for 24 hours to complete the Third EnlightenNext Marathon, have a good cup of coffee, and then start up again and complete a creativity marathon, where I will paint for 24 ongoing hours.

Why? I'm excited to do this because it's a challenge that… terrifies me a little bit, but also because I'm set out to demonstrate that human beings are capable of feats beyond the rational mind when they align with the deepest parts of themselves and the nature of reality.

What is it that enables someone to sit for 24 hours and be fully awake the whole way through? What is it that is inherent to creativity that activates us at a much higher level than we usually operate?

It's something that goes beyond the rational mind and the material universe--and that's why I'm posing myself a challenge that seems downright irrational.

If all my friends give me $10, I'll hit my goal. It equals $50 per hour of my 48 hour marathon. So show me some support!

I truly appreciate any donation and will be sure to thank you after I've slept, on Dec 13.

Much love to all,

If you donate $50 or over, receive a small painting from the day of my marathon. If you donate $100 or over, receive a larger painting from the day of my marathon!
