Josh van Konkelenberg
B.Mus. (Hons), Grad. Dip. Screen Composition, M.Mus.Perf, Ph.D.
Josh was introduced to meditation by Graham Williams, who also taught him piano as a teenager. Now a professional musician, Josh remains fascinated by the richness of feeling that meditation brings to his life, and he uses meditation in his personal and work life to maintain calm and sharpen his concentration.
In 2019 he undertook a year-long retreat that profoundly changed his outlook and approach to life. He is particularly grateful for a practice that is grounded in the rich heritage of Buddhism and that is also adapted to contemporary life. Helping others find their own meditative practise has become a passion for him since he began teaching in the same year.
Josh is the Artistic Director of Co-Opera, and teaches organ and improvisation. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, reading, and going to the gym.
