International One Week Deepening Retreat
A deepening retreat offers the possibility to experience the full effect of Acem Meditation, leading to essential changes in your meditative process and in everyday life.
You can check in from 15:00 and meditate in your own room.
A deepening retreat is suitable for Acem meditators who already have some experience with long meditations and who want to practise meditations of more than six hours.
A deepening retreat gives you an opportunity for daily long meditations of at least six hours. The retreat will focus on how to enhance your meditation. All activity under the course of the day is designed to stimulate the deeper meditative process.
The long hours of silence are followed by daily process-oriented guidance groups led by experienced meditation guides, in order to maximise the results of long meditations.
Questions arising from performing long meditations, along with meditative and existential topics will be covered in the evening seminars.
Walk and talk
There will be ample time for walks in the beautiful surrounding areas. Some of the walking time is combined with one-on-one discussions of themes and issues from your meditation.
Daily sessions of basic Acem Yoga have a refreshing effect and facilitate the practice of long meditations.
