Acem Meditation Retreats

Long meditations provide relaxation and stimulate personal development. Guidance improves the quality of your practice, and seminars increase your understanding of the process. Most retreats also have ample time for strolls in the woods, refreshing yoga sessions and interaction with other meditators.

There are three basic types of Acem retreats:

  • Weekend retreats help you overcome obstacles to successful meditation, leading to deeper relaxation and initiating fascinating processes of personality development.
  • Summer retreats usually take place in beautiful natural surroundings at Acem’s retreat centres in Scandinavia. Deep layers of mental stress and muscular tension give way to a calmer and more receptive frame of mind.
  • Deepening retreats are for Acem meditators who already have some experience with weeklong retreats and who want to practise meditations of more than six hours daily.

For all retreats, the book Practical Guide to Acem Retreats will be of great help.
