Workshop on Meditative Archery

31 May - 1 June & 7 -8 June

Manto Retreat, Pagoi

The "Intuitive Archery" is the beginning. Intuitive archery offers us ONE way to put reflective thinking on the back burner, something that keeps us so busy in everyday life. The focus on the outside is the goal, many find it easier to relax mentally in activity and contemplation than, for example, in classic meditation.


Through inner stillness we realize that we are not servants of our thoughts. Our heart gets more space. The subconscious sends us messages. Again and again in silence during drawing and releasing, our intuitive abilities are encouraged. In meditation we turn off the rational mind for a while. Mental relaxation, opening, self-reflection become possible.


Feel the presence just before letting go the arrow, relaxing the fingers.



First of all, of course, we learn how to use a bow and arrow in the first few hours.



Course time: 4 – 5 hours/day,

10:15 – 12:15 and 16:30 – 19:00 (adjustment possible)


PRICE: 125 €
