Shin Dao, simply translated from Japanese Kanji, is Heart Way or The Way of the Heart.
A Shin Daoist is one who walks the Shin Dao Path.
As a Shin Daoist, you stand in service to your highest good with the characteristics of a Spiritual Warrior – strength, courage, honesty, integrity, humility, dedication and compassion. As a Shin Daoist you follow the wisdom of your heart, taking focused action with the guidance of your conscious mind, committed to sharing your unique gifts with the world. Your Shin Daoist journey is filled with love, joy, passion and the playfulness of the Divine.

There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first; when you learn to live for others, they will live for you.

You rise above drama and self-doubt to develop the determination and will power needed to take the necessary actions to create health, happiness and well-being in all aspects of your life – no matter what! – so that you are able to be in full service, as your heart desires.
Live from your Heart, Follow your Bliss… and Be the Love you want in your life!
