Putting yourself out there

Today I was very pleased to be featured in Transit Magazine. I have been featured in magazines before, and even BBC travel, but I think a lot of these come from just putting yourself out there.

I’m fine if people just want a private life, if that suits you fine, then great! But if you have something the world can benefit from, I think you owe it to the world to share it. That for me is the Yamabushi culture and philosophy.

Either way, it wouldn’t have happened had I not been doing things like writing this blog, making YouTube videos, or working with the Yamabushi, so I for one am very happy to get some attention to what I think is a very unique part of Japan the world can benefit from.

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.
