THE CONVERGENCE EXPERIENCE
Over recent years, spirituality, science and the arts have converged in an attempt to cultivate a more compassion in society. Inspired by this process we have developed a new music and meditation program The Convergence Experience that draws on ancient traditions of meditation and mindfulness practice, more recent principles of evolutionary science and neuroscience, and the emotional potency of music to cultivate and enhance compassion and self-compassion.
The Convergence Experience can be utilized to relieve stress, enhance wellbeing, stimulate creative thinking and problem solving and nurture a more compassionate and cohesive work environment. Whether you’re an individual, company, organisation or institution fostering a relaxed, alert and creative environment where colleagues have respect for one another requires compassionate thought and action. Convergence is a research based program designed to nurture this kind of environment.
Developed by clinical psychologist Dr. Stan Steindl and SAO artistic director Dr. Anthony Garcia The Convergence Experience has been facilitated at Soul Space in Brisbane, the UQ Compassion Symposium and at recent CHOICE Conference sponsored by the UQ psychology department. Ongoing research into the efficacy of the Convergence approach continues with the support of Dr. James Kirby.
