About This Event

Kyudo demands that we let go of our goals and expectations and live fully in the moment. Through meticulous attention to detail, all aspects of the Kyudo form and movements provide a subtle mirror of the self, as well as an opportunity for deep study. In this outstanding retreat, beginners will receive training in the Seven Coordinations: holding the yumi (bow) and ya (arrow), sighting the target, creating a stance, lifting and drawing the yumi and releasing the ya to the target. The Seven Coordinations are the ground on which to balance the energy of the body, mind and bow, and provide the basis for more advanced practice. Intermediate students will receive personalized instruction in basic and formal group shooting. Formless aspects of Kyudo will be taught as well.

Over the years, the Monastery’s Kyudo retreats have developed a reputation for being foremost among Kyudo training opportunities in the U.S. We encourage all Zen students as well as anyone interested in the contemplative arts to engage this special training. The retreat accommodates both beginners and intermediate Kyudo students. Traditional handcrafted yumi as well as other necessary equipment are provided.
