Monday morning before our 9 o’clock walk and before our first ever Women’s Archery Retreat convenes for it’s final session. This has been grueling and a complete success. Sounds like the Camino. And yes, we covered a lot of ground in a very short time and have a few sore spots but we are still smiling.
By a long shot ( good pun ) this is the most intensive archery program that I have been involved in. We went from basic form Saturday morning the Saturday to shooting moving targets yesterday. Who else does that? Today we are going to have fun with some games and we are going to wrap it up with some last minute philosophy.
I am so so glad that we did this. We have another retreat in August or September, we haven’t decided as of yet. So, hopefully I can get some more of you to drive and fly in for that one. We will take what we have learned and improve on the program, just like always. Always improving, that’s us.
So Felipe, what does this archery thing have to do with the Camino thing wanyway? Why are we talking about it on Caminoheads? Well, excellent question and I have been thinking about that. They both seem to offer a gateway to things deeper not only in our past but in our basic makeup. Things that are hard to get to from our high tech world of speed and progress.
We seem to live our lives in the thin layer of the upper most layer of the body of water called life. We live in those fast moving reflections of other things. Taking the time and effort to dive down to the depths is refreshing, fulfilling, vital. That’s what we were trying to achieve this last weekend. I’m pretty sure everyone felt that.
OK, the walk here in a few minutes. We are on our way back from Muxia to Santiago on our “walk in Spain”. Here I go, love, Felipe.
