Acem meditation has helped me deal with certain fundamental challenges in my life by altering the way I look at problems. The Acem way of counseling and the focus on developing a free mental attitude resonate with me. Through meditation, I’ve come closer to understanding the deeper currents of my sub-conscious and their influence on my life. And I’ve managed to free myself in some of these aspects through meditation.
I believe that what make this organization special, apart from its non-religious, no-frills approach, are the teachers. I admire and respect the meditation instructors from Norway for the professional yet deeply caring manner of guiding us through our mental landscape, helping us see things as they are, and in the process creating new possibilities.

What drew me to Acem was that it has a universal and scientific attitude to meditation. It is universal because Acem does not have any beliefs or religion associated with it and scientific because it provides a logical explanation for its effects. I was drawn to this universal quality attitude because I have always believed that the issues that we face are universal to all human beings. For instance, why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Since this desire for self-understanding is universal, I always felt that a universal approach can tackle these issues. Since religions and other belief systems tend to have a closed focus, one may never find an answer to these questions there.
I began my meditation in August 2009 and I’ve no idea about meditation
The beginner’s course from Mr Jayaraj was really a new experience in
my life. And later on when I met Mr Torbjorn Hobbel it only strengthen
my belief into this practice. Not only I continued the regular/daily
practice of it, I also started reading/surfing about the subject of
meditation, different techniques and different practices people do. It
has open a new world of knowledge which I was completely unaware of
before.And when I attended the first retreat at Rishikesh in 2009, I
understood the true meaning of Acem Meditation. Under the guidance of
Dr Are Holen I’ve been educated into the psychology of meditation &
how it works. I realised the people although from very far away from
my country but they practice the same satvik habbits what we’ve been
following from generations. I felt attached to a new family/group with
wonderful & like minded people. The daily practice began to show
results in my daily life.The Acem Meditation Daily Practice helped me in many ways. Now I’m
much more aware of what I’m doing. Some of the benefits — instant
energy, relaxation, awareness, personality development, decision
making and living a meaningful life. I think everyone must do half an
hour meditation daily. Its really worth doing. And to me I feel like
the meditation sound I got is my true companion for rest of my life.
