What do the participants say?

I was not at all sure how it would be to attend a retreat online but decided to give it a try. From the beginning welcome and small group introductions I knew I had made the right choice. There was trust and a sense of community that developed almost immediately, which I think is quite unusual. 

I appreciated the regular guidance throughout, which really helped me gain a better understanding of the technique and process. And it was so helpful to learn through the experience of other meditators too. 

The benefits of the retreat stayed with me for some time afterwards! I look forward to online Acem retreats being a regular part of my life schedule and meditation. And online retreats have the added advantage of no airfare or packing or suitcase required.
