I became more straightforward – The Meditation Blog
Acem Training in Interpersonal Communication 21-29 May 2022.
Acem meditators from all countries can, again, participate in this very special event, after two years of pandemics. From early on in the course, you will discover that there is a lot underneath the surface of everyone. «I try to understand what lies behind the way others come across on the surface», says Liza Franke. Another participant from last year, Marte de Picciotto, puts it this way: «I want to become more aware of this in my daily life – in order to improve my understanding of others. The course has moved me profoundly».
Towards a widened perspective
Many come back several times. One of them is Per Storrø Petersen, who says: «I appreciate the opportunities to work with important personal life themes. In each course, there are new gains to reap.»
You spend much of the time in groups of six to nine people, with a completely open agenda. The group members and one or two very experienced leaders collaborate towards a better understanding of what lies behind the communication. A wide range of moods and emotions are activated, and personal reflection brings new insights about how we are driven by feelings we didn’t even know we had. The course is intensive. Towards the end of the week last year, Vadim Alekna didn’t want to go home; «I enjoyed all the activities in the group.»
