Don’t detach yourself

When we listen to interviews and pieces on other people, it’s easy to use how they’re different from us as reasons to not copy or at least consider what they’re doing for ourselves. Of course their experiences are indeed different, but if we detach ourselves completely, we risk missing the lessons that they could teach us.

Don’t detach yourself from the lessons you could learn.

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.
