This Class is Not For You

To the student sitting there talking Japanese when you’re supposed to be preparing for the speaking activity, this class is not for you.

To the student who is constantly late, this class is not for you.

To the student who spends the whole lesson talking and avoiding eye-contact with the teacher the whole time, this class is not for you.

To the student who is always on their phone, thinking the teacher doesn’t notice, this class is not for you.

The the students whose class this isn’t for, why are you coming?

Enrolment is important, but it should come from the student themselves, not their parents. It could also be argued that I need to design better activities, but you never know what will work, and some students are really just there to fill space. Just don’t waste my time or the time of your fellow students.

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.
