Going to the core! – Training in Interpersonal Communication

2020-03-01T12:26:00+01:00March 1st, 2020|

Acem Meditation World Retreat 2021

Most of us have never been to Bulgaria, and even fewer have visited the Rhodope Mountains, close to the southern border toward Greece. After having spent considerable time searching, we have concluded that this is the ideal location for Acem’s third World Retreat, which will take place on July 24-31, 2021. […]

Emil Aarseth on Acem’s Training in Interpersonal Communication:
