What’s your interpretation?

When it comes to Yamabushi training, that’s the big question. For me, it’s also one of the most interesting parts of the training, seeing how other people interpreted our shared experience.

All we can do is offer our own interpretations of the experiences, of which Master Hoshino has written books about, but what’s really important is the participant’s own interpretation, in other words, how they felt. This is why Master Hoshino pushes people to feel first, then reflect on their feelings.

The thing is, you can take other people’s interpretations of training at face value, or you can come and experience it for yourself, and make your own interpretations. I know which I prefer.

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.
