Red & Leonore, Mounted Archery at Horses & Pathfinders Equine Guided Education 2013
 Intuitive Archery is an ancient art and skill that can awaken a  deep resonance  

 within us, and open a doorway to shareexperience  with all ancestral heritages. 
It is a wonderful moving meditation.
It is a common language.  Archery invokes the energies and attributes  of deities from every culture and continent, male and female, just to name a few : 
Artemis, Apollo, Diana, Osoosi, Rama, Shiva,  Arjuna,  Ullr,  Freya, Marduk, Chiron, Houyi and Fudo-Mayo and more.  The list of living cultural, historical and  folkloric heroes/heroines is  too lengthy to mention here, but spans all cultures past and present. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              image: Mary Anna Abuzahra, Mazahra Arts©2014 by Aart Nutgeren
  My Archery Mission                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Archery can help to build confidence, self-esteem, healthy body image, enhance goal envisiong and spiritual calm.  Archery in a grou can deepen bonds, and initiate healthy patterns in new relationships. I strive to encourage and  inspire these lasting experiences in a safe  and supportive environment, for individuals and groups.

Basics of Intuitive Archery will be presented to the group and to each individual as they take up the bow.

Detailed information and directions are sent to pre-paid registrants prior to day of event.
Every safety rule for archery is required and participants who are not keeping safe will be asked to leave and their payment refunded.
All participants take part at their own risk.
My events are open to all adults who can keep safety at the forefront of their experience.
All are welcome, teens under 16 need a parent' or legal guardian to accompany them, over 16 with written parental/guardian permission.
If children would like to attend, please inquire to arrange a special time frame.  
Younger children do best with their own kind of atmosphere and lesson, which I can provide for them.
I have many years of professional experience in the field of Early Childhood Education as a Montessori Educator and Licensed ECE Program Director.
Please do not bring pets.  It is very distracting and difficult for group work, even though we are dog lovers!!!
