Kyudo, the Way of the Bow, is one of the oldest arts of the Japanese tradition of contemplative warriorship. The focus of the practice is working on the mind rather than on marksmanship. Working with the precision of the form, a natural process gradually unfolds through which the practitioner has the opportunity to see the mind more clearly. The target becomes a mirror reflecting one’s mind at the moment of the arrow’s release.
Grace DiNapoli, Director and Instructor of Seiko Kyudojo at Karma Choling, is offering a Kyudo demonstration for the Burlington Shambhala community immediately following Sunday morning practice and Social. Everyone is welcome to witness this elegant and profound practice.
