The retreat is an ideal place to learn meditation. All instructors have been through several years of training and have long teaching experience. Each day provides ample opportunity for personal practice followed by guidance and discussion. Topics covered include:

  •  Brief introduction and personal instruction
  •  Applying the basic principles to your own practice
  •  From stress relief to personal process
  •  Scientific research and the psychology of meditation

You learn how to use Acem Meditation for relaxation and stress management, and you lay the foundation for a fascinating process of personality development and self-understanding.

The book Acem Meditation - An Introductory Companion is included in the course fee. While you cannot learn the technique from a book, a CD, or the Internet, the psychology of meditation stimulates your practice and provides a fuller understanding of the process.

After the course, you can practise the technique on your own, whether you choose to become a regular meditator or to meditate whenever you feel the need.

If you wish, you may continue to discuss your meditation practice with a qualified guide after the course. You may also choose between a number of follow-up activities, such as group meditations, talks and lectures, the follow-up courses M1 and M2, as well as weekend retreats where you can get away for a while and recharge your batteries.


The course is arranged by Acem International School of Meditation
