I saw your post about working with and honoring dragons in pagan practices and spiritual work. I have always respected Japanese dragons greatly but never had the understandimg to work with them beyond deep respect. I have Nordic heritage so mostly I work with Northern Dragons. Can you recommend any books or literature for me to read up on Japanese dragons and working with them? And more over, to edify my very basic understanding of Shinto practices? I want to understand and be respectful!
