To meet and discuss with fellow meditators improves your understanding of the technique and enhances your personal process. It may also help you to get back on track if you have got out of the habit.
Upcoming Acem Meditation Retreats in India.
After the beginner’s course, you can choose between a variety of follow-up activities. All of them combine meditation with discussions aimed at enhancing your practice and integrating meditation in your everyday life.
Meditating together is often a pleasant experience. Talking about your meditation makes it easier to discover new possibilities. Listening to others provides important input and inspiration.
Long meditations followed by guidance stimulate your motivation for daily meditation and improve your command of the basic principles.

The follow-up courses M1 and M2 make meditation theory come alive, improving the quality of your practice, and boosting both the short-term and long-term results. You may participate in a full course or go to individual meetings.
Weekend retreats help you overcome obstacles to successful meditation, leading to deeper relaxation and initiating fascinating processes of personality development.
International 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.
International deepening retreats are for Acem meditators who already have experience with weeklong retreats and who want to practise meditations of more than six hours daily.
You may also make an appointment to discuss your meditation practice with a qualified guide.
With experience, meditators may find it helpful to practise long meditations, but this should only be attempted in the context of a retreat or a similar setting in which qualified meditation guides are available to discuss the meditative experience with them shortly afterwards. A meditation guide can be helpful in identifying detracting meditation practices.
As suggested above, Acem Meditation requires patience and willingness to consider our meditation practices honestly. It also requires a certain refusal to take shortcuts or detours, as these tend to prevent us from reaching our meditation goals. If we are, however, patient and willing to devote a year or more to refining the process, we will become more and more skilled at meditation and provide ourselves with challenging opportunities to be enriched from within.
