Running on reserves

I’m failing at my own goals. I had said that if I was ever too busy to go for two swims in a week, that I was doing something wrong. Now I’m too busy to even write this blog. But I’m kind of stuck. Teaching 8 classes a week is really taking its toll (especially for students who actively don’t want to be there 🙁 ). I think I need to better blank out spaces of time, otherwise I’m running on reserve fuel, and that’s never a good thing.

Tim Bunting Kiwi Yamabushi

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.
