Through Kyudo one can learn to live beyond hope and fear... how to be.
            - Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

This retreat will be taught by Sam West, 'Somo' of Kozan Kyudojo.

Kyudo integrates technical skill with the development of a completely focused and disciplined mind. Influenced by Shintoism and Zen, it is a path of self-development and meditation that requires the archer to cultivate precision, a clear mind, and freedom from fear. Originally a samurai discipline, the purpose of Kyudo now is to purify one's heart and mind, awaken natural human dignity, and to go beyond the obstacles of ambition, aggression or confusion.

The weekend presents the opportunity for both beginning and continuing students to learn and practise an ancient form of kyudo using traditional Japanese bows (yumi). Students 12 years and above are welcome.

Tuition: 200.00 plus accommodations.
