Every Uketamo a chance to grow

During your time on the mountains with the Haguro Yamabushi, multiple times you will be required to say ‘Uketamo’.

Uketamo isn’t a word of tolerance, nor is it a word of harm. Uketamo is a word of accepting the current moment you are in, and looking to push things forward.

The constant repetition of Uketamo is because in order to push things forward, we need to accept our selves in that moment, but that we also need to do this multiple times so that it can lead to growth.

Every Uketamo, is your chance to accept the moment, and your chance to push forward and grow.

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.
