Putting in the reps
I’ve noticed a problem with my most recent video, I’m going to have to put in a lot of effort just to maintain the standard!
However, at this stage this is not realistic. I know I have these videos in me if I have the time (and money), but my focus now is to maintain the standard as much as possible, and put in the reps by creating weekly videos for this year at least.
In the time between taking this video and releasing it, I recorded two other videos.
The first video I’m afraid the sound was ruined (I didn’t use the right settings on the GoPro), and I also used the GoPro a lot, which I really should have avoided. This first video was taken on a bit of a whim, I knew I would be going to the mountain but wasn’t sure whether I would film. I could always just not use this footage, however, I promised myself to make a video each week no matter what.
The second video I have also put together, but there are a few pieces to the puzzle that are missing. The main story is there, but I don’t think it is as interesting as this week’s video.
So, my thinking here is, I have these two videos, and I’m going to release them. They may not be at the same standard as my other video, but they are videos nonetheless. What’s important isn’t making a perfect video every time. What’s important is making the videos. And that’s what I’m going to do! (Who knows, they may turn out quite well!)

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.
