Can our experience with metathoughts – self-critical thoughts during meditation – help us understand the origins of our shame? Is understanding shame helpful even if we cannot get rid of it? May shame be passed on through generations? What is the role of shame in society – from the “shame dumping” of political debates to the omnipresence of racism and prejudice? And how should we relate to shame during different stages of life, including old age, where the overarching aim is reconciliation with who we are.

This webinar will be based on a recent issue of Acem’s Nordic periodical Dyade (no. 1 2020), written by the two speakers.

While often understood as simply getting new ideas, innovation is not mere invention, but also the implementation of these ideas. Empathy, perseverance, and an open mind are some of the personal qualities useful in this process. Most ideas don’t turn into successful innovations but need to be abandoned or re-thought.
This webinar explores how practicing Acem Meditation can support an exploratory innovation process that embraces the uncertainty that surrounds us.
