Built on age-old tradition, Acem Meditation has been further developed in Scandinavia during the past thirty years.
Acem Meditation is different
Ancient insights have been supplemented by modern psychological skills and theory. Traditional teaching methods have been largely supplanted by modern teaching methods and group dynamics. This has increased the potency of meditation, with better effects for the practitioner.
Daily half hours
During the 30 years since Acem was founded, more than 50,000 people have learned Acem Meditation. For some, the method has been a passing experience. Others have found Acem Meditation to be an effective technique for relaxation, recreation and health. For some, Acem meditation has also become important as a way to find inspiration and stimulate existential reflection on their lives. For most, the daily half-hours of meditation are a habit they very much look forward to.
Relaxation and energy
For the beginner, the most obvious effects of Acem Meditation are relaxation and increased energy. Many find their ability to concentrate increased. Quite a few report improvements of their general well-being. It is now generally accepted that meditation techniques can be an important aid in managing stress, lowering blood pressure and mitigating other undesirable effects of the modern life style. On this level, Acem Meditation has been shown to have good effects on headaches, backaches, insomnia and other stress-related symptoms.
For the long-term practitioner, the effects of Acem Meditation are even more wide-ranging. Acem's psychological approach stimulates a fascinating process of self-exploration. On this level, Acem Meditation is a way to explore aspects of the unconscious, resulting in a deeper understanding of oneself and the human condition. It is an important source of increased self-awareness and personal growth in an existential sense. It enables you to modify some of your deeper psychological structures, provides a new and more constructive basis for daily life, and helps you to make better use of your potentials.
Easy to learn
Acem Meditation is easy to learn, and involves the repetition of a simple sound. The meditation method enables the mind to express its own needs under conditions of greater inner freedom. The point is not to control your thoughts, but rather the opposite - to let them go. In Acem Meditation, your mind sets its own agenda, which is particularly important when working with unconscious processes. Yet it is an active technique. Nobody influences you. Acem Meditation is something you practice on your own. The results obtained are solely the effects of the quality and length of your own practice of the method - they are not bestowed upon you from the outside - by the grace of God, a guru, spiritual powers, or the like.
