Shinto, “the Kami Way,” is the indigenous faith of the Japanese people. Deeply connected with nature, Shinto finds a healing and purifying power in mountains, streams, wind, and trees. The essence of life energy in natural phenomena is deified and worshipped as Kami. The four elements of worship are purification, offering, prayer, and symbolic feast. The goal of Shinto is the removal of the “dust” which hides the divine nature of human beings.
