Confluence is an alliance whose members are committed to exploring the interconnection between different traditions of meditative practice for people today.
By combining historical and contemporary approaches to meditation, we hope to enhance the practice of meditation within a variety of communities. We organise, interreligious dialogue events and academic and non-academic conferences on meditation. We develop programs and courses for use in educational settings and professional environments and undertake academic research on historical and contemporary issues related to meditation.
