Et fordybelseskursus giver dig mulighed for at opleve fuld effekt af Acem-meditation. Lange timer med stilhed og processorienterede vejledningsgrupper udgør hovedelementerne.

A deepening retreat is suitable for Acem meditators who already have some experience with long meditations and who want to practice meditations of more than six hours.

Long meditations

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.

Guidance groups

The long hours of silence are followed by daily process-oriented guidance groups led by experienced meditation guides, in order to maximize the results of long meditations.

This retreat might offer guidance groups in German and Scandinavian in addition to English, depending on the number of eligible participants.


Questions arising from performing long meditations, along with meditative and existential topics will be covered in the evening seminars.

Young edition

This retreats offers separate social events for participants under the age of 35. Get to know other young meditators from around the world and share your experiences.

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.


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