Enjoy exciting new perspectives and reflection by joining these two Acem Webinars in October and November.
Shame – how to understand our painful companion
Saturday 03 October 2020 16:00 CEST (Oslo, Berlin, Barcelona)
Can our experience with metathoughts – self-critical thoughts during meditation – help us understand the origins of our shame? Is understanding shame helpful even if we cannot get rid of it? May shame be passed on through generations? What is the role of shame in society – from the “shame dumping” of political debates to the omnipresence of racism and prejudice? And how should we relate to shame during different stages of life, including old age, where the overarching aim is reconciliation with who we are.
By Ole Gjems-Onstad and Merete Hetland
This webinar will be based on a recent issue of Acem’s Nordic periodical Dyade (no. 1 2020), written by the two speakers.
Embracing Uncertainty – Acem Meditation and Innovative Thinking
Saturday 07 November 2020 15:00 CEST (Oslo, Berlin, Barcelona)
Which activities favor innovative thinking? How can meditation help us develop these?
While often understood as simply getting new ideas, innovation is not mere invention, but also the implementation of these ideas. Empathy, perseverance, and an open mind are some of the personal qualities useful in this process. Most ideas don’t turn into successful innovations but need to be abandoned or re-thought.
This webinar explores how practicing Acem Meditation can support an exploratory innovation process that embraces the uncertainty that surrounds us.
