Recurring Event Event Series: ONGOING – Sitting & Moving in Awareness

DROP IN PRACTICE GROUP: Sitting & Moving in Awareness

January 3, 2023 @ 7:00 am - January 3, 2024 @ 8:00 am PST

Sometimes we need stability. Sometimes we need flexibility. They’re both available, and can be cultivated.

This is an ongoing, hands-on class, offered from Seattle, Washington by Zoom, that teaches two simple but profound ways to boost mental, emotional, and physical health: sitting meditation (shamatha, “evenly abiding”) and mindful movement (qi gong, energy practice).
TIME AND DATE
The class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM for the year 2023
There will also be an 8:oo AM to Noon session on the last Saturday of each month.
The Zoom link is provided when you register.
You can attend any or all of these practice sessions. Instructions are part of the session. Feel free to begin any time. All are welcome. No prerequisites.
TEACHER
This practice event is led by George Draffan, a long-time dharma colleague of Lama Lekshe. George Draffan is a Seattle-based teacher and coach who is passionately interested in bringing together diverse Buddhist and Taoist practices to benefit people. He began studying Buddhism at the University of Wisconsin in the 1970s. Since then he’s received instruction and participated in many retreats with teachers in the Tibetan, Theravadin, and Zen Buddhist traditions. George has also practiced Taoist philosophy and qigong for many years. His practice of embodied movement has been deeply influenced by physical labor, mountain hiking, and the gentle therapy of Feldenkrais. George will be leading some classes and practice at Dekeling in 2023.
OFFERING (Dana) OPTION for the EVENTS
This class will meet Tuesdays, Fridays and some Saturdays on a drop-in basis. Instead of charging tuition, we’ve decided to link to George’s PayPal account and students can make a donation at a time of their convenience, according to their means. No need to offer for each individual class.
