A surprising thing about music
Is that when you don’t hear it for a while, the sounds are intense when you do. I guess this isn’t that surprising a fact, but it is surprising how much clearer music sounds after, for example, a week in the mountains doing Yamabushi training.
I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, Yamabushi training helps you appreciate the mundane. Music is not mundane, but the very fact that we can listen to whatever we want whenever we want is. And music especially has a great power over humans, a power that I really felt after coming out of the 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.
