Mental preparation

Next week I will be joining in Yamabushi training, for the whole week. It starts on Monday, and ends next Sunday.

I keep having these moments when I am highly aware of myself, highly aware of what’s going on. When this happens, I picture myself in different situations, and I think this is a byproduct of Yamabushi training.

Which means it’s working.

Yamabushi training is all about being in the moment. I think this hyper awareness of the moment is what that means. And my guess is that holding this for the longest time is the best way to go about things. If you can imagine yourself in a future scenario where you are hyper aware, you can use this to your advantage in your training.

Nothing beats actually being in that moment, but if you can practice for it, say through Yamabushi training, why wouldn’t you?

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.
