Kyudo Practice Weekend: Intermediate Archery Program

with Lucy Halverson
September 11 / 12:00 AM - September 14 / 12:00 AM

Kyudo, the Way of the Bow, is one of the oldest arts of the Japanese tradition of contemplative warriorship. It is meditation in action. The aim is not the target, but synchronization of awareness and body in the present moment.

The idea of the Practice Weekend is for kyudo practitioners in the area and beyond to come together in practice with each other and to celebrate our shared journey. The program offers an environment in which beginning and experienced students can advance their practice together. The key is open-hearted participation.

"Through Kyudo one can learn to live beyond hope and fear, how to be."  – Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

"One is not polishing one's shooting style or technique, but the mind." – Shibata Kanjuro XX

The program begins Thursday at 1:30pm and ends Sunday at 2:30pm with a closing ceremony.

Intermediate students may register for a single day of attendance or multiple days.  Contact Guest Services at 802-633-2384 for daily rates.
