The best way to get through

In winter, go snowboarding. In summer, visit the ocean. In autumn, take in the leaves. In spring, take in the cherry blossoms.

When it snows here, it really snows. There will be snow on the ground for the majority of December to the end of February. You can either complain about having to clear it, or you can go snowboarding!

Likewise, the warmer months are really nice, but can get a bit much at times. Even in the middle of summer when it’s boiling hot, you can go to the ocean or a waterfall or a mountaintop.

Whatever the situation, you have to find a way to embrace it. That’s the best way to get through.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
