Minzoku Neo-Shinto

What is Minzoku Neo-Shinto? The technical answer is, "A universalist approach to an existential Japanese folk religion." But what does that mean? To break it down, universalist means it's open to anyone who's sincerely interested, it's not just for people of Japanese ancestory. Existential means it's based on personal experience, not on scripture or dogma. Folk religion means it's a religion as practiced by the commons – the everyday people – and on a local basis; it's not a religion as taught in the seminaries, universities, or on a national or international basis. Why is it Neo-Shinto? While it is primarily Japanese Shinto, like most folk religions everywhere, it incorporates elements from other cultures and makes their expressions uniquely it's own. Locally, this includes practices, ideas, and forms derived from the various groups that make up Paganistan.
