Welcome to Brightwoods Spiritual Centre.
We are a Shinto shrine dedicated to providing a place where people can come immerse themselves in Great Nature and experience personal renewal through prayer and meditation. Shinto is a spiritual tradition from Japan that is thousands of years old. Through the rituals of Shinto, we may purify ourselves, restoring the original luster and luminosity and finding great joy in our lives.
We invite you to visit Brightwoods, to meditate and pray at Ki no Mori Jinja in the heart of the forested property, to experience walking meditation on the trails throughout the forest, to experience renewal through the practice of misogi in the ocean, and to participate in ceremonies and teachings in the Centre.
