Stories

Stories are an insanely important part of what it means to be human. It’s precisely because we have the ability to form stories that create a collective understanding between multiple people that we can move multiple people at once to take action.

The next point though, is what we use those stories for. The story you tell yourself, the story you share with others, are they for a better world? As humans, we have the chance to create a better world. And it starts with stories.

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.

Tim.
