People have meditated for thousands of years, partly for health and well-being, partly for self-improvement, and partly for something numinous beyond such this-worldly concerns.

While Acem’s approach to meditation is modern and largely scientific, it is still worth asking: What do the experiences discussed in the various traditions of meditation have to tell us about the meditative process? What do they have to say about the baggage we are carrying with us into this process? Or about the need to liberate ourselves from this baggage?

More specifically, how do they think we should deal with distractions? And where will the wandering mind take us when it is set free?

 

The course is arranged by Acem International School of Meditation
