Stay calm, stay home

Lockdown has the feel of a birthday as a kid or Christmas, the waiting sometimes becomes too much and you feel the urge to open your presents. Luckily we’ve all experienced this, so we know we can be patient by distracting ourselves until it’s safe to come out again.

Lockdown is going to be very good for society because people will appreciate the mundane, going to the cafe, going to the park, seeing our friends and family, going to a sports match, much more than before. The real test is whether or not we can last that long. We can. We just need to support each other.

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.
