Shinto Meditations for Revering the Earth
Complementing Buddhism, Shinto is Japan's 2,000-year-old worship tradition that celebrates the relationship of humans to the natural world. This modern-day collection of Shinto-inspired devotions shows the reader how to commune directly with Great Nature for health, wisdom, and serenity.
Structured litanies address mountains, waterfalls, rocks, trees, etc. Includes instructions for performing authentic "waterfall purification" and a section on experiencing Shinto in North America.
