The first hour of the Beginner's Course is a FREE INTRODUCTORY SEMINAR. You may decide after the Introductory Seminar whether you will take the Beginner's Class right away or at a later time. No obligations if you drop off after the seminar.

Low prices. Half price for full time students and for the second person when family members learn the technique simultaneously

In the US, a beginner's course usually consists of two sessions, each providing ample opportunity for personal practice followed by guidance and discussion. Groups of 5-15 participants meet for altogether 7-8 hours. Topics covered include:

  •  Brief introduction and personal instruction
  •  Applying the basic principles to your own practice
  •  From stress relief to personal process
  •  Scientific research and the psychology of meditation

You learn how to use Acem Meditation for relaxation and stress management, and you lay the foundation for a fascinating process of personality development and self-understanding.

The book Acem Meditation - An Introductory Companion is included in the course fee. While you cannot learn the technique from a book, a CD, or the Internet, the psychology of meditation stimulates your practice and provides a fuller understanding of the process.

After the course, you can practise the technique on your own, whether you choose to become a regular meditator or to meditate whenever you feel the need.

If you wish, you may continue to discuss your meditation practice with a qualified guide after the course. You may also choose between a number of follow-up activities, such as group meditations, talks and lectures, the follow-up courses M1 and M2, as well as weekend retreats where you can get away for a while and recharge your batteries.

All instructors have been through several years of training and have long teaching experience.

Minimum age restriction: 16 years.
