Women's Kyudo Retreat

with Lucy Halverson

June 1 - 4

Women's Kyudo meet at Karme Choling

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 biennial retreat began in 2014 and is open to women who have taken first shot. Class equipment is available.

While there is great benefit attending the entire program, participants may register for a single day or multiple days of attendance. The price for each individual day is $110. Contact Guest Services at 802-633-2384 or info@karmecholing.org for per-day registration. Class equipment is available.
