This book helps established practitioners of Acem Meditation, but also TM and other non-directive mantra meditations to maximise their benefits from the practice. The book discusses psychological, philosophical and existential aspects of Acem Meditation. Readers wanting to explore the relevant issues in a broader context, or who simply are looking for advice for how to deal with aspects of their meditation practice may find this book to be a source of inspiration.

In English-speaking countries, the book is used as course material for physical beginner's courses and is included in the course fee. (Online beginner's courses use digital excerpts instead.)
