The Power of Nature

It’s hard to put into words how key of a distinction this is, but for traditional Japanese attitudes to nature, I’ve found it’s not so much about ‘exploring’ nature, it’s more about accepting your place in nature.

We don’t ‘go into’ nature to discover nature, we ‘go into’ nature to feel a part of what we already are, a part of nature. It is this return to our roots, or a reminder even, that we have a place in something much larger than ourselves. This is what helps us feel re-energised and re-invigorated whenever we are ‘in’ nature.

That is the power of nature.

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.
