Our story

Lifeflow Meditation Centre is a non-profit, independent organisation established in Adelaide in 1981.

Since then it has steadily moved towards the common goal of translating the knowledge, skill and wisdom of the meditation tradition (principally two of the Buddhist traditions – Tibetan and Burmese) into a form that is relevant and applicable to contemporary Australian life..

Lifeflow owes its existence to the effort and dedication of the Director, Dr Graham Williams, and the many members who contribute time and energy to the organisation, both on a paid and a voluntary basis.
