Natural Awareness

  • George Draffan has trained since the 1970s in the Tibetan and Theravada Buddhist traditions, and in body-based practices including taiji-qigong and Feldenkrais. In his teaching George emphasizes body-based awareness, stability (shamatha) and clarity (vipassana), and compassionate awareness of¬†the habit-patterns that prevent us from being present and responsive. He encourages students to connect with their own situation and motivation. George¬†offers workshops, retreats, and one-on-one coaching in person or by video. In the past few years he's led workshops and retreats in Washington, Oregon, California, Canada, New York, Ohio, and Tennessee. George also works as a research consultant to environmental and social change campaigns. He served as president of the Northwest Dharma Association from 2001 to 2005, and returned in 2015 as executive director.
