Acem meditation psychology try to utilize the challenges involved in meditative actualization. Easy to avoid, but can we make it a gain?
The seminar highlights many factual and theoretical examples of actualization. To make the phenomenon more accessible, the seminar also speculates about how processes of actualization may have turned out for some celebrities we all ‘know’:  business entrepreneur (Steve Jobs), a politician (Nicolas Sarkozy) and some literary figures (e g Ihab in Moby Dick and the main protagonist in Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time).
Actualization can represent a demanding challenge - but with a heaven. It provides an opportunity to make one’s life more integrated and to realize one’s resources in a better way.
The personal rewards may be substantial if the insight gained through actualization may help one choose differently in everyday life where pain is really uncomfortable, and defeats truly defeat.
Few people have the gift of the author. But everyone has a story to tell, fragments to integrate, life events to understand more fully. Actualization of meditation can bring one closer to that story
