A deepening retreat gives you an opportunity for daily long meditations of at least six hours. The retreat will focus on how to enhance your meditation. Daily guidance groups are scheduled to maximise the results of long meditations. Questions arising from performing long meditations, along with meditative and existential topics will be covered in the evening seminars. There will also be time for walks in the beautiful surrounding areas. Daily sessions of basic Acem Yoga have a refreshing effect and facilitate the practice of long meditations.

Who may participate?
Deepening retreats are for regular meditators who already have experience from weeklong Acem Meditation retreats.

Lactovegetarian meals
The Halvorsbøle cuisine is based on lactovegetarian food well suited for long meditations.
