#howslowcanyoubow Today I revisited my alternative challenge and fashioned a new spindle and tested the set first 😀once I knew the set was good I embarked on the speed challenge … well the how slow can I bow challenge. You don’t need to go hell for leather . Slow down.
With good pressure and a steady pace an ember was coaxed in just over 1 minute on the first attempt. slowing down allows more awareness and to spot any issues which may need addressing.
I feel that It also allows me to more enjoy coaxing the ember out of the wood and to be more connected with the whole experience.
Do you dare take on this speed challenge!
Blessings on the ancestral fire 🔥🙏
