Kyudo Intensive

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

Seiko Kyudojo welcomes kyudo teacher Don Symanski. As a longtime kyudo practitioner and meditation student, Don’s teachings align the technical form with the contemplative aspects of the practice. 

This is an opportunity to join together for an extended period of group practice in a retreat setting. Along with offering thoughtful insights into the meditative qualities of the form and practical instruction, Don will share his extensive knowledge of yumi care and maintenance.
