Graham Williams was born in Australia. A concert pianist and teacher, he graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Ph.D. and Grad. Dip. Ed. and taught there for 20 years. While studying in Paris he realised that music was one of the few living traditions of meditation in the West. This led him to over ten years’ training as a teacher in both the Burmese and Tibetan meditation traditions, and six years in intensive retreat. He has concentrated on bringing the advanced techniques of these incredibly rich traditions into an easily accessible form.
Graham has created a uniquely Australian form of meditation which embraces the rich natural environment and Australian art and music. He is founder and director of the Lifeflow Meditation Centre and has been teaching meditation for over 25 years. He has trained a team of nine teachers who now work together in the Centre, which has taught thousands of people how to meditate and trained hundreds in the more advanced practices.
Graham is also an Adjunct Lecturer in the School of Medicine at Flinders University and a consultant to a national company of corporate psychologists and still teaches piano.
