Daniel Giamario is the Director of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School and creator of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm. He joins together an academic background in Comparative Philosophy and Religion, with teaching meditation in two worldwide organizations, and extensive world travel.
Daniel learned astrology in the late 1960’s and was part of Dane Rudhyar’s humanistic astrology movement in the 1970s. After a vision quest experience on Mount Shasta in 1981, his astrological vision and spiritual path became more Earth centered and a shamanically oriented astrology was born. For many years, his specialty has been connecting astrology to the night sky at secluded locations and sacred sites in an “As Above So Below” direct experience. He has been a full time astrological consultant since 1984.
Shamanic Astrology has evolved as a rich blend of psychological, mythological, spiritual, and shamanistic elements, specifically designed to assist in the unfoldment of the individual’s life purpose and in navigating this pivotal point of the Turning of the Ages.
In the early 1990s, with the help of Cayelin Castell, the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School was conceived as a land based, nomadic, and virtual curriculum for training counseling and therapeutic professionals in the use of the most important and transformational astrological tools and techniques.
Daniel’s first book, The Shamanic Astrology Handbook, was revised and updated in 2012 and again in 2014. A variety of other Shamanic Astrology books are currently in development. Daniel has written numerous articles for Mountain Astrologer magazine and other publications. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, Daniel traveled extensively, teaching workshops in over thirty locations. He currently is traveling less, except for regularly scheduled events in the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School curriculum.
Daniel is available for personal and phone consultations, lectures and workshops. He is also a lively and stimulating radio and television guest and has hosted his own radio show on the Seventh Wave Network.
