On January 27th, 1966, a group of students came together in Oslo on the initiative of Are Holen, who was a student of psychology at the time, to found Academic Meditation Society (AMS). A few years later, the name of the organization was changed to Acem. Fifty years have passed, and an enormous amount of idealistic work has resulted in an international organization with centers and activities in many countries on several continents. Acem is unique in its focus on meditation guidance and the development of a down-to-earth and wide-reaching psychology of meditation.
