Long meditations

One aim of the retreat is to help you master the three-hour level of long meditations. This mode of Acem Meditation furnishes for a calmer and more receptive frame of mind. Deep layers of mental stress and muscular tension are allowed to loosen up, and you can come in touch with yourself in new ways.

Daily guidance

Small guidance groups led by experienced instructors provide you with ample opportunity to discuss your meditative experiences. This enhances meditation skills and deepens insights into central personal issues.

Evening seminars

Evening seminars explore the psychology of meditation and help you to enhance your meditative practice.


Daily sessions of basic Acem Yoga have a refreshing effect and facilitate the practice of long meditations.

Social interaction

The activities of the retreat will enable rich and varied social interactions in an international milieu.
