Re: Lack of Spiritual teaching in Japan?

Opinion: Spirituality isn't just the domain of stoned hippies, talking BS about abstract philosophies.

To me it can be a meal with your family, a smiley kid or hard physical training. No need for the soul/body split as Peter mentioned.

A friend here in the States commented that people here talk about their religion and spirituality a lot, whereas in the UK (and maybe Japan?) it's more of an implicit, personal matter. But what do I know, time to shut up and get the washing
