About the course

Breathing meditation

At the first meeting, you will receive group instruction in Acem breathing meditation, a simple relaxation technique that you are recommended to practice for 15 minutes daily until the next meeting.

Sound meditation

At the second meeting, you will receive individual instruction in Acem meditation. You learn the meditation sound, a sound suitable for meditation - without linguistic meaning. When you meditate, you sit comfortably in a chair, close your eyes and repeat the sound effortlessly in your mind. It makes body and mind relax. To try out the technique and for best results, 2 x 30 or 1 x 45 minutes of daily meditation is recommended.

Stress management and personality development

The last three meetings take place in groups. The meetings start with 30 minutes of joint meditation. Experiences are discussed and each meeting has a theme:

  • What is correct meditation?
  • Results and research
  • Personality development and the way forward

Environment and technical

All you need is a computer with a camera, headphones and a microphone.
