Traditionally, Shinto (the way of the gods) is defined as the indigenous belief-system of the nation of Japan. According to the teachings of Ninzuwu, however, this animistic faith of the Japanese people was once a worldwide system of spirituality that also included, but not limited to, the primordial faiths of Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, Europe, Polynesia, and etc. Ninzuwu means “alchemy of Heaven and Earth, as in the divination of the Yi Jing. It is a spiritual path that is unique to the Sumerian god Ninazu, of which the Ninzuwu trace their lineage and is founded on the principle that we are “facilitators” of change, using our gifts for self-transformation and the betterment of all humanity. Thus, we find that Ninzuwu Shinto accurately describes an ancient global system of spirituality that operated in the same manner of what is known as Shinto today.
