Psychology of Silence

This classic introduction to Acem's theory and practice of meditation, written by the founder, is available for the first time in English. It provides and easy-to-read account of the technique and it's effects on health and personality. The book also includes chapters on meditative silence and the cultural background of Acem meditation. This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with two new chapters, one that compares different forms of meditation and one that explores the depths of the meditation process. Acem’s down-to-earth approach to meditation originated in Scandinavia in 1966. Acem Meditation is now taught on all continents. This approach is based on intensive experience, a user-oriented psychology of meditation, and scientific research on the relaxing and transformative effects of mediation on brain and body.
