Improvisation

It’s an extremely useful thing for artists too, it’s basically what art is. Sometimes necessary, always useful, being able to improvise helps you deal with the unpredictable and can be cause for innovation as well. In the past year, many of us have had to improvise to simply get through. That in itself is remarkable. Through such unpredictable difficulty, our collective ability to improvise has enabled us to get through a world that has changed forever, while also being an agent of that change.

Never forget that you have the ability to improvise. It’ll help you get through the unpredictable.

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.
