The beginner's course provides ample opportunity for personal practice followed by guidance and discussion. Topics 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.
