Don’t make me yawn

I was watching a presentation this morning and the presenter stopped part way through to ask one of the viewers to stop yawning. Teaching, I have always thought it is your job as the teacher to keep people engaged. If they aren’t engaged, they aren’t learning. Then there’s no real point to being there.

So I can see why you would ask people to stop yawning, but you also have a responsibility to stop that. Take it as a sign that you need to change something up.

Well, the real crux of the matter here is not engagement, but enrollment. Are people there because they want to be there? If so, I think you’ll find minimum yawning. Then it’s a matter of finding something worth enrolling for.

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.
