Meditating Twins

Twenty-one-year-old twins Elisabeth and Carina Heimdal feel that Acem Meditation has improved their relationships with other people.

They learned Acem Meditation in Norway four years ago, and daily meditations have been part of their life ever since. Both agree that Carina has become more self-assertive and articulate about her feelings, while Elisabeth has become less susceptible to fits of temper.

Carina says: “I have become more aware of my wish to communicate more personally and clearly in my relationships to others. Rather than holding back, I am now expressing more of what I feel in my daily life. Instead of thinking about what I should or shouldn’t do without finding an answer easily, I have learned to admit that certain things are a bit complex. Sometimes, though, I think it is better for me to think less and give more room for spontaneity. I particularly like the web-based guidance chats after retreats: at appointed times, we have a guidance chat, which works fine. Studying abroad for several years, I am alone with meditation most of the year, and the regular contact with others who meditate is very stimulating.”
