SHINTO Practical Wisdom for the Modern World
PRACTICE
SHINTO PRACTICE energy in silence The archer hits the target in deep night, or blind- folded. How do we grasp this secret of the archer? The answer lies in the practice of shinto-exercises. These are a non-verbal way to gain insight into the outside world as a reflection of the inner world. To hit the target outside, the archer closes his eyes and concentrates upon his inner core, his essence. Shinto has developed a series of exercises aiming at the balance of body, mind and nature, based on an awareness of space and time and the interconnectedness of all life in the cosmos. This awareness generates new energy. It is an effective way to prevent illness in today’s world, whether psychological or physical. The exercises transmit to us an ancient wisdom. They offer us powerful insights into humanity’s place within nature. The concept of nature is all-inclusive, encompassing family and friendship, work, human society, city as much as country and the cycles of life, death and regeneration.
