The communication course takes place at Halvorsbøle outside Oslo, Norway on 29 April–7 May, 2017. The course is an opportunity for in-depth exploration of patterns of communication and underlying psychological issues. It provides opportunities to enhance sensitivity, interpersonal social skills, leadership qualities, conflict management, understanding of group-dynamics, and self-knowledge. The benefits can be felt both in professional and private life. The course is suitable for first-timers as well as experienced participants.
Since 1970, communication courses have been developed by medical doctors and psychologists with an interest in Acem Meditation and personal development. These courses are now also available to English-speaking participants.
