Incorporate Silence into your Life

There is a point in Yamabushi training right when we finish chanting a prayer that everything around us falls quiet, and we are stuck in a silent limbo. It is impossible to describe how amazing this silence feels, you really do have to be there, but that this silence can provide such emotion is truly saying something. Of course this is only amplified because we are out in nature, the nature of the Dewa Sanzan at that, but it is in this silence that we truly fathom and come to terms with what is happening around us.

Silence provides us with the chance to reflect, and through this reflection, we come to realisations. These realisations help us grow and change our ways for the better. That’s why I think it’s important to incorporate silence into your life.

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.
