Experience: Beginner 

Workshop Duration:  6 Days

The path of the Spiritual Warrior is to consistently prepare to face the universal enemy: self-ignorance.  In this 6 day workshop you will employ archery, yoga and meditation to bring awareness to your True Self.  

Your path as a Spiritual Warrior begins with bringing awareness to the Anamaya Kosha, or our physical sheath. Listen intently as you bring awareness to your Anamaya Kosha.  Experience the subtle changes in your body, as you rhythmically move through asana sequences especially designed to gently awaken the muscles which you will employ during the archery ritual.  

During the archery ritual focus on the present moment as you maneuver through the shot process.  Learn to let go…at first focusing on letting go.  Then, with practice, we learn to release without consciously thinking about it.  

Experience The Spiritual Warrior  Level 1 course and begin to discover how you are an integral part of what happens next.

What exactly is it?

The Spiritual Warrior is a course in which the many parallels between Archery and Yoga are explored  and experienced through asana practice, archery, and class discussions.  

What is the intention?

At Pura Veda we have been exploring these practices for years and we know that we will continue to learn from our personal experience and study.  We are happy to provide the space and the curriculum for people to embark on their own journey.  

Becoming a Spiritual Warrior entails becoming aware of who we truly are, keeping a sense of physical, mental and spiritual balance, and continuously bringing to awareness the subtle impacts that come with the creation of our thoughts, words, actions, and habits.
