Mindfulness and Archery

Take an inward journey as you employ the ancient art of archery.  Used by many as a form of meditation and inward exploration, archery can help increase your focus, self awareness, self esteem, emotional awareness, emotional control, and the search for truth. Each one of our workshops is designed to help you find the Spiritual Warrior within. Mindful Archery is one way to relax the mind and body, and to learn to let go of attachment with the release of every arrow.

The Spiritual Warrior:

Experience: YogArchery is a Pre-requisite

Workshop Duration:  3 Days

 The path of the Spiritual Warrior is to consistently prepare to face the universal enemy: self-ignorance.  In this 3 day workshop you will employ archery, yoga and meditation to bring awareness to who you truly are. Awareness brings to the conscious mind the subtle message that something is not quite right with the way we are living. Follow this awareness into a conscious exploration of the self by deconstructing the labels, intentions, thoughts, images, words, emotions and feelings which are believed to be you.

Through archery, yoga, and meditation begin a journey that will help you interrupt patterns that bind you to a continuous cycle which impedes personal growth in the search for happiness. 

The spiritual warrior has been created for those truly seeking to liberate themselves from the material bonds that we have been taught to depend on. 

This 3 day workshop will focus on awareness, focus and reflection. Evaluate how your archery ritual can be carried off the archery range and yoga mat and into your daily life. Share in the study of yoga philosophy and apply what you learn to discover who you truly are.
