Kyudo (Zen Archery): The Way of the Bow

LAURAJEAN STEWART


2008 CONFERENCE PAPER


Abstract:

Kyudo (Zen Archery) is a moving meditation that, with practice, becomes a metaphor for one’s life. Zen Archery is considered the highest body practice that comes out of the Samurai tradition. It requires discipline of the mind, body and spirit. The basic Kyudo form is a means for gathering energy to the heart, then releasing that heart energy with focus and precise intention, with no attachment to the results.
