Affected by expectations

We purposely don’t explain much about Yamabushi training before we do it. This is because the more you know about something before actually doing it, the more your experience is affected by expectations.

On the surface this may seem a bit unnecessary, but you will find with new experiences that you start comparing the experience to your expectation, rather than simply enjoying the experience, or doing the experience for the sake of doing the experience.

So, for an experience like Yamabushi training or something where you don’t need to know much in advance, I try not to know too much in advance so I am not as affected by expectations.

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.
