Intensive practice of Acem Meditation makes deep layers of mental stress and muscular tension give way to a calmer and more receptive frame of mind. Refining your meditative practice gradually enables you to recognise patterns and emotions previously hidden from your awareness. One aim of the retreat is to help you master the three-hour level of long meditations.

Evening seminars

Evening seminars explore the psychology of meditation and help you to enhance your meditative practice.

Daily guidance

Small guidance groups led by experienced instructors provide you with ample opportunities to discuss your meditative experiences. This enhances meditation skills and deepens insights into central personal issues.


Daily sessions of basic Acem Yoga have a refreshing effect and facilitate the practice of long meditations.
