Seiko warmly welcomes back instructor, Jim Boorstein from NYC’s Toko Kyudojo for our Annual Kyudo Program. This is an opportunity to join together for an extended period of group practice in a retreat setting. The program is open to all who have taken First Shot.

Kyudo, the Way of the Bow, is one of the oldest arts in 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.

Through Kyudo one can learn to live beyond hope and fear, how to be.
