Here is one view of Shinto from an outsider on the inside looking out at the world - Shinto keeps Aussie Grounded.

Caitlin Stronell also wrote this piece for an ecumenical group.

Ms. Stronell's words are not necessarily representative of Shinto. Her essay is an expression of her experience of Shinto.

You're welcome.

By way of historical and cultural background, please see the links for Kokugakan Univ. that Rob H posted in the Hombu thread. I was intending to post that material, but he beat me to it.

I hope that the Kokugakukan info and Ms. Stronell's contributions to crosscultural understanding and political activism shed some light on the practices and contexts (and possibilities) of Shinto in Japanese culture.
