The classic introduction – available for the first time in English
This book presents the classic introduction to Acem’s theory and practice of meditation, written by the founder. Psychology of Silence provides an easy-to-read account of the technique and its effects on health and personality. The book also includes chapters on meditative silence and the cultural background of Acem Meditation.
New chapters – thorough revision
The English edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with two new chapters. The first: Diversity of Meditation Techniques compares different forms of meditation. It clarifies main characteristics of various techniques and what distinguishes them from each other. The second: Meditative Process explores the steps in deepening processes with longer meditations.
A Scandinavian approach to meditation
Acem’s down-to-earth approach to meditation originated in Scandinavia in 1966 and is now taught on all continents. This approach is based on intensive experience, a user-orientated psychology of meditation, and scientific research on the relaxing and transformative effects of meditation on brain and body.
Psychology of Silence was launched at the World Retreat this summer – where several hundred copies were sold.
