As an air traffic controller in Karlsruhe, Germany, Benjamin Kartal has a stressful job. "I always have to think plan a, b, c and d. I need to be flexible. If I'm not, I'll build up anger and frustration. My daily meditations help me reduce stress levels a lot."

After ten years of yoga practice in Taiwan, Erin Tseng still felt stuck. For some reason, she could not breathe as deeply as some of the postures required. She was struggling. It was only when she learned how to “let go” in practice that she was able to relax and come closer to her own spontaneity. Now she is training to become an Acem instructor in meditative yoga.

Rather than just following the road already defined, I prefer an open-ended process."

This is for me!

For Elia Camacho, it took time before she finally decided to learn to meditate. “I had heard about meditation, but did not start before I moved from Mexico to Spain, after talking with a friend who had some experience. I chose Acem Meditation because it is non-religious.”

About one month after I had learned Acem Meditation, I found that I could write poetry again, an ability that I had lost for years. Meditation helps me to relax, both physically and mentally. Because of that my sleep has also improved.

He was only a teenager the first time he saw the watercolors of Swedish painter Lars Lerin. He felt like he'd had a revelation. The paintings spoke to him in a way he hadn't been spoken to before.
