PENDING: Women's Kyudo Retreat

with Lucy Halverson

July 23 - 26, 2020

2019 Women's Kyudo RetreatPENDING: By June 1, we will announce whether this program will go forward as planned.

Along with individual and group practice, as well as reviewing basic skills, the retreat considers the unique strengths and challenges of women and the practice of kyudo. Whether you have been away from kyudo for a while or are a regular practitioner, consider this opportunity to explore your practice in a nurturing environment. We'll come together in the spirit of open heart to celebrate our shared journey. This is the fifth women’s retreat which began in 2014 and is open to women who have taken first shot.

While there is great benefit attending the entire program, participants may register for a single day or multiple days of attendance. Contact Guest Services at 802-633-2384 or info@KarmeCholing.org for per-day registration. Class equipment is available. 

NEW for the 2020 program -  a special Women's Retreat Scholarship Fund was established in 2019 for those paying in Canadian funds, email SeikoKyudo@KarmeCholing.org to apply or for questions regarding the retreat.
