In our rush to engage with technology in the future are we forgetting or getting side tracked from what we value about the simple pleasures of the natural environment, our past and traditions? 

By reconnecting  with these elements of life once again can we find the grounding, balance and peace we all deserve to live a purposeful life in the age of AI? 

Shinto (神道 Shintō)

Connecting past to present 

Shinto (神道 Shintō) Or kami-no-michi (as well as other names) is the ethnic religion of Japan that focuses on ritual practices to be carried out diligently to establish a connection between present-day Japan and its ancient past. But we could apply these principles regardless of where we live because it is a state of mind. Growing in popularity due to the increase in stress and the curiosity and growth in mindfulness, yoga, philosophy, spirituality, and gratitude practices.
