A deepening retreat gives you an opportunity for daily long meditations of at least six hours. The retreat will focus on how to enhance your meditation. Daily guidance groups are scheduled to maximise the results of long meditations. Questions arising from performing long meditations, along with meditative and existential topics will be covered in the evening seminars. There will also be time for walks in the beautiful surrounding areas. Daily sessions of basic Acem Yoga have a refreshing effect and facilitate the practice of long meditations.

Evening talks
Evening seminars explore the psychology of meditation and help you to enhance your meditative practice.

 Deepening retreats are for those who have:
• practised Acem Meditation regularly for at least 3 months ahead of the retreat
• at least 20 hours of long meditations beyond the 3-hour limit (corresponding to a 1-week retreat).
