Acem Meditation beginnersThose who have already begun to learn Acem Meditation take part in a course set up in one of the girls’ hostels. They meet some of the same challenges as people in other parts of India and the rest of the world. Many of them have pains in the neck, back, or shoulders, reflecting the stresses they encounter in their everyday life. In addition, many of them find it challenging to understand that in Acem Meditation, thoughts may come and go freely as a part of the technique, in sharp contrast to what they have heard about meditation in other contexts. Still, they practice meditation to good effect.

  1. Hi there! I’m quite sure that I have something that I can connect and interject, my book is about relevant lessons from my journey towards self-realization. Tried and tested by my activism during my grassroots movement to uphold democracy, I realized that the vigor of my convictions and capacity to uphold freedom was driven by my belief in my inner being. My strong sense of my personal responsibility to protect individual freedom led me to explore and test my inner capacity to sustain the spirit of freedom. I daresay, I launched a democracy movement in order to test my inner capacity to realize my ability to protect what is owed and natural to me in my body, mind, spirit and soul. The desire to be free is a soul searching self-realization.

    Our advocacy is to promote change for the better through self-realization we express the natural genius and open our minds to feel the flow of life energy as it courses through us. By experiencing the life form in its true creative genius we connect to our body, mind and spirit as it was meant to be. The learning from our inner experience in meditation allows us to know who we are. In meditation, we reevaluate life and are inspire ourselves to experience more fully our best selves.
