Shinto: Seeking the Divine in Nature

Presented by: Supasari (Nokomis, FL) | Touring Roster Artist, Asian Dance & Theater by Supasari

Shinto “the way of divine spirits” is Japan’s indigenous faith and precedes the arrival of Buddhism in Japan.  Shinto is based on ancestor worship and belief in sacred power of both animate and inanimate beings in nature.  Its influence on Japanese arts, culture, traditions, values and beliefs is extensive.  Supasari, a native of Japan and accomplished performing artist and lecturer, will explore the Shinto faith in relation to myths, culture, arts, landscape and garden architecture.
