For the past few weeks, if not months, I have been getting excited about using Ghost.org instead of WordPress. It just seems so much more suited to what I want out of a blog. For those who don’t know, Ghost.org is like a combination of WordPress, Patreon, and MailChimp, three services I am currently using. …

Seeing a 15m tall Torii gate covered in snow, and then having freshly-cooked soup and a hearty lunch underneath it is just plain fun, and a great way to get into the great outdoors, and to really get refreshed. But there’s a bit more to it than that. The past couple of days and weeks …

When you’ve signed up for something, but then regret having done so, or simply don’t want to do it, it can obviously be really tough to truly enjoy the experience. But it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. Once the wheels are set in motion, you really shouldn’t fight it, doing so only makes the experience worse. Look …

This week I had to use my Hanko stamp, a stamp used in place of a signature in Japan, for two things; one an invoice, and one a receipt. I had been told that you don’t need to print these out, that you can just put a .png image of your stamp in red where …

Your accomplishments are much more meaningful precisely because of the struggles you had to overcome to get there. Think about your struggles, then think about how much more meaningful they would make your success in the future. When you look back on your life, look back at the struggles, but be able to say, look …

Sometimes it’s hard to emphasise with someone if you simply don’t have the experience. So when they repeatedly choose you as a complaining board it can be frustrating for you to have to listen to. But if someone straight up says ‘it’s not something I have to worry about’, it shows a complete lack of …

Derailment is what happens when you lose your direction. It can happen all of a sudden, or it can build up over an extended period of time. Some things creep up on you if you’re not careful. Once you realise they have crept up on you, you may think it’s too late, and although it …

TIM BUNTING – KIWI YAMABUSHI

OFFICIAL DEWA SANZAN YAMABUSHI NAME:

RYOSEN – SPREADER OF TRUTH

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 I made). 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.

Sign up for the Mountains of Wisdom mailer for updates, follow me on social (IG, FB, YT, Twitter, TikTok, CR, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email to get in touch.

Tim.
