Confluence: "a flowing together, especially of two or more
There is often powerful turbulence
at the place where rivers meet. People, like rivers, may find
turbulence at their confluence, where differing goals, needs,
skills and styles present obstacles to "flowing together."
A mediator can help people navigate
the rapids of change and conflict more skillfully, so they can
use the energy of differences for positive results.
