yoga, karadi sadhana and archery. I don’t know why people have given up the skill of archery in the present day.”

    I have a manufactured bow and the bow I made with Lars shoots so much more accurately even though it does not have a sight – it is like we are one. Weird…but great! Comment from a previous participant.

    Thanks for a great weekend with the longbow making workshop. I appreciated the mix of longbow expertise with the more meditative elements and advice that could be applied to other areas of life. To paraphrase: Don’t get too hung up on the final product without enjoying the journey. You need to enjoy the journey. If you don’t enjoy the journey, you’re missing the point. It was a relaxing time and I’m proud of the work I completed. I would definitely recommend the longbow workshop to others. David
