"Yamabushi training is the simple philosophy of placing yourself in nature and feeling, not thinking, in order to rejuvenate back to your true self." - Takeharu Kato (local Yamabushi guide)
Yamabushido is a new word that we are using to describe the wider practice of the Yamabushi (mountain priest training), as we explain it to an international audience. It includes not just the mountain training, but also the philosophy and the values of the Yamabushi. The aim of Yamabushido is to provide something for international guests that they can use powerfully even after they have returned to their ordinary lives.
During training, guests stay at the Daishō bō pilgrim's lodge; an important Shugendo location. Such pilgrim lodges until recently were reserved for Shugendo initiates, but with our training the doors are open to you too.
