So I found the Jinja Honcho Association of Shinto Shrines page and see that it mentions a course that one must take and pass in order to become a Shinto Priest. Any information on this would be appreciated. I have been working the last two years on building a private Shinto Shrine at my home here in the US, but there is little to no information available on the process. I am hopeful that this forum may add some enlightenment for me on this journey. I hope there is a way to make a connection with a Shinto Shrine in Japan and become a "sister shrine" here in the US, if anything like this is even possible.
