I have just arrived back from a trip to Japan for further training in Shugendo. During mountain training, we go through various trials that represent different negative states of mind and confused perceptions that test us in daily life. These include long treks in the mountains, days fasting, nights without sleep and daily sessions standing under freezing waterfalls or being exposed to chilli smoke in a confined space.

When we experience our own emotions and limitations under such extreme conditions we can overcome them to some degree and recalibrate our perceptions.  When you have experienced extreme hunger or tiredness and return to the normal life you find your perception of hardship has radically changed.

About Martin

My life's work has been to learn and master the art of meditation. To do this I have practiced and studied meditation with unbroken, daily discipline for over two decades as taught in the works of Franz Bardon. However, just like Bardon himself, I have also dedicated my life to gathering what is of use from different traditions around the world - whether hidden in the Japanese mountains, Egyptian desert or with the Indian yogis.
