Weekend Intensive with the Swiss

Six Swiss kyudo students, along with two practitioners from New Mexico, swept into Boulder to join locals from Zenko Iba in creating a transformative weekend intensive. The collective mood was serious yet warm, focused yet easy. Though we came from varied backgrounds and different parts of the world, a circle of togetherness was palpable. Sharing the practice and resolve to learn the way of the bow from Shibata Sensei was a tremendous joy.

Sensei responded to the positive atmosphere by teaching... and teaching... and teaching. We did our best to soak up his offerings, and carry them into our practices with care.
