A lesson from snowboarding

There are a lot of lessons to be taken when it comes to skiing and snowboarding, but my favourite is that when you feel as though you are about to fall over, a lot of the time you can more easily than it seems just push yourself back up. Although it may not seem like it, sometimes you don’t in fact need to fall over.

Sometimes of course you do fall over, and whenever you do, it’s best to embrace and enjoy it. (Depending on where you are) It’s just powder snow, so you can just get back up.

I hope you have had the best year possible given the circumstances, and I hope that your 2022 is the best year it can be! Here’s to another year of blog posts, and another year of mountains!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
