    It's good to hear you are receiving a book. I feel sometimes that I should invest more time reading about such topics. In regards to meditation, I used to experiment with it... I always focused...

    Re: Shinto Group Thread

    Well, there are several different "parts" to Shinto, Folk Shinto and Shrine Shinto for example. I understand that this is a very simple explanation, but Shrine Shinto pertains to the official...

    Oh, I understand about the tea.

    The way you talk you would think that you live in the Holy See or something :P If the kamidana is in your home, who is going to raise a fuss about it?
