Conditioning for the big moment

It’s much easier to practice when you have a set goal you are working towards. However, in recent years a lot of those goals have been taken away from us, meaning it takes much more to get motivated.

When it comes to something like exercise or even writing a blog, I like to think of it as being able to pounce when you need to. It’s about getting as ready as possible for when the big moment comes. Equally, it is about creating these opportunities for the big moment to come, or at least putting yourself in the position that you can take advantage of them when they arise.

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.
