On Acem Meditation

You don't try to relax. You just sit comfortably in a chair with eyes closed, practising a simple mental technique, allowing a deep relaxation to take hold of body and mind.

In Acem Meditation, you repeat a meditation sound mentally without effort, while thoughts and impressions are allowed to come and go freely. There is no attempt at emptying the mind.

Relaxation and personal growth

Relaxation comes naturally. Knots and ties unravel, stress and worries gradually give way to a calmer frame of mind. Afterwards you feel refreshed, energised and often more creative.

The free mental attitude activates our inner strength. In the long run, the inner freedom of Acem Meditation may initiate fascinating processes of self-understanding and personal growth. It's refreshing and creative and breaks mental barriers. The primary goal of Acem activities is not intellectual comprehension but rather the embodiment of an understanding reflected in the ways people relate and act in private and work-related life.

Daily time-out

Many meditate one half-hour every morning and evening, or once a day for 45 minutes. Others use the method when they feel the need. Ten minutes is better than nothing. It is best to meditate in a quiet and undisturbed room. Research indicates that the most pronounced health benefits come from relaxation techniques allowing spontaneous thoughts to pass freely.

Evidence-based

The understanding and teaching of meditation is based on first-hand experience and in line with scientific research and psychological perspectives. The Acem method is not based on any particular belief system or ideology.
