Tami Brunk is a Fully Certified Shamanic Astrologer and past president of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School, and an Active Dream Teacher through Robert Moss’s intensive Dream Teacher program. Her life passion is to call in and re-awaken the Priestesses and Earth Mages through ceremonial work with Venus and her cycles, and by marrying the worlds of Dreaming and Shamanic Astrology.
She was the first, since 2010, to begin leading circles through the entire 19-month Venus Cycle as ceremony guided by the Inanna Descent Myth.
She has conducted in-depth research into the Venus Return Cycle for women, and is co-founder of Venus Alchemy with Shamanic Astrology Mystery School Co-Founder Cayelin Castell. Through Venus Alchemy, Tami and Cayelin lead a dynamic global community of women and men through the entire 19-month Venus Cycle as a re-enactment of the Inanna Descent Story.
The inspiration for this course emerged from Daniel Giamario’s research into the Venus Synodic Cycle, which linked the Venus Synodic Cycle and the ancient Sumerian Descent Myth of Inanna.
As is true with every practitioner of Shamanic Astrology, my greatest teacher has been the night sky. I have visited Chaco Canyon, Machu Picchu, and Chichen Itza. The site where I received my most illuminating insights during my training as a Shamanic Astrologer was in a small canyon in the Ojito Wilderness, surrounded by hoodoo rock formations, and the beautiful silence.
I was born into a family of 9 children and was fascinated from an early age by the diversity of personalities within our household. As a Neptune empath with a Gemini Moon mastery of duality, I could connect to and appreciate the often contrasted and conflicting values and needs of my parents and siblings, seeing the truth in each individual’s preferences.
Astrology for Earth Renewal
I have always felt a deep kinship with the natural world, learning the names and uses of native plants in the land surrounding my parents small Missouri farm. My sisters, brother and I would sleep under the stars every August, watching the Perseid meteor showers. This awoke within me a fascination for celestial cycles, linking my love for the land with an appreciation for the vast yet intimate sky, and the cycles of the sun, moon, stars, and planets.
I love to approach life as a grand adventure, and to stretch my limits. In my twenties I fell in love with the West, backpacking the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the flanks of Mount Rainier, Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains, Oregon’s Eagle Cap Wilderness, Hell’s Canyon, and Denali National Park. I have explored the landscapes and rich cultural traditions of the Peruvian Andes as well as the sacred landscape of Israel and Palestine.
I have always sought a healing interface between the natural world and modern human culture. I see equal importance in liberating the wild and magical impulse within each human being and protecting the wild landscapes that so nourish my own spirit. I believe each human possesses an indigenous soul—the capacity to tune into Earth consciousness and align their life in service to the whole.
