October Board of Directors Meeting

Doc takes aim

Following a brief summary of the June 5th, 2011 GFAA “organizational meeting” regarding the Board of Directors, Officers, its purpose, mission and structure, Dr. Richard McCune, aka, “Doc”, addressed the origin of the concepts, plans and practices now working together as the GFAA.



While recuperating from a serious illness in ’08, Doc, the founder and, current CEO of GFAA, reaffirmed, this time for himself, the remarkable importance and power of what he had come to strongly recommend during the many years in practice to those who have sought his consultation.  His typical Rx: From mid-childhood on be taught/learn to take charge of and responsibility for one’s own life, so that/or, in times of recovery or impacted by a major change, one can set a practical course that works; then, stick to it as a life-long practice.

In summary, he concluded: “Discovering an accomplished practice of daily living leading to successful outcomes and healthfulness is formed upon a practical understanding based in a knowledge of how the world, in and around us, works--well or not well.  This is essential for success in all that we are to be and do: being in relationships, living ones life as fully and healthfully as possible.  But we should read the “warning label”: Practicing life solely through the discovery process (of self and/or other) “may be hazardous to your health,” addictive if used too long or often and, as we find in the news repeatedly, deadly! NOTICE: Frequent or prolonged use of “the discovery process” not necessary in a society where multiple generations live in close proximity. 


Enter: “On target mentoring”

  • Based in the proven principles of a disciplined living
  • Expertly fitted to the subjective needs of the trainee(s)
  • Provides ongoing coaching aimed as staying “on target”

The GFAA “On target mentoring,” presents a disciplined practice in the systemic interaction of these three processes.   When worked together and synergistically each of the three components builds upon and increases the potential of the others.  Mindfully targeted efforts addressed in this manner result in outcomes that are more that the sum of the parts! 

Our programs are “expertly fitted” for each individual or group and, include those learning for the first time or returning to relearning a practice in the art of archery. As such, our work brings with it more than 10 millennia of proven practice history and the most able theories and science of mindful living.

We believe such a practice will continue to assist many persons enjoy these results and apply the same to personal growth, mindful and health-filled relationships and life-long recreational opportunities.
