Sam West

About us

Sam began kyudo in Boulder in 1980 with Sendai, Shibata Kanjuro Sensei XX, who had been invited  by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche to teach kyudo in Colorado. In 1984 Sam became responsible (Somo) for Toko Kyudojo in Manhattan.  He traveled to kyudo programs with Sendai during the 80’s and, in 1987, became responsible for Kozan Kyudojo in Nova Scotia.  Sendai sent Sam to help foster kyudo and develop dojos in Europe and the US. In 1999 Sendai requested Sam to organize and develop all the kyudojos  within Zenko International from Boulder. There, Sam lived with Sendai, cared for him, studied kyudo, organized and traveled with Sendai to teach programs in North America and Europe. In 2007, Sam returned to live in Nova Scotia from where he traveled to assist Sendai in teaching kyudo in North America and Europe until Sendai’s passing.  Sam continues to lead and assist kyudo programs at home and abroad under the current lineage holder of the Heki Ryu Bishu Chickorin Ha school of kyudo, Shibata Kanjuro Sensei XXI.

Chaos is what we've lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control. Terence McKenna

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
