"The Shamanic Soul is a must read for any spiritual seeker.  As a sanctioned teacher of Indigenous wisdom, Moler brings the mystical into our midst as he guides us through the profound, age-old wisdom, giving us practical applications to access embodied spirituality."  

Dr. Jill M. Strom,  DC, CACCP, FASA, Founder and Director of Cura Integrative Health Care and author of The Cura Convergence: Healing Through Science and Spirit

Featuring stories from Daniel's own journey becoming initiated in curanderismo, this book shows you how shamanism can completely change your life. You'll explore many aspects of its practice, including the seen and unseen realms, spiritual tools such as mesas and campos, and the three pachas (worlds) of the shamanic cosmos. This book also introduces you to vision quests, limpias, and rituals. Through hands-on activities and meaningful insights into shamanic theory and creeds, The Shamanic Soul is a guide to awakening your true Self.





“Daniel Moler’s The Shamanic Soul—in the tradition of one of his principal mentors, don Oscar Miro-Quesada—is a practical, clearly articulated “translation” of the therapeutic practices of Peruvian shamanism. Enhancing the author’s credibility is the manner in which he openly shares his personal growth showing how these techniques contributed to his own spiritual quest and that the key to successful initiation lies within the reach of each and every sincere seeker. Moler also shows how these practices have much in common with many of the mystical traditions of the world, which have tended to be esoteric and elitist. This exclusivity is not the case with Peruvian mysticism. In this sense Moler’s text is very democratic. It is offered in the same spirit as that of my Peruvian mentor, don Eduardo Calderón Palomino who had the following to say about his shamanic practices:

'Everything related to curanderismo (curing) is discoverable simply through the study of     natural forces applied to these so-called mysteries that are not mysteries. Rather, they are very, very susceptible to those persons who really feel the desire to learn. It is necessary to teach all so that they know what is about. One must never keep    secrets—secrets that are not secrets. Rather, one must bring all out into the light.' (Wizard of the Four Winds, 1978)”

Douglas Sharon, Ph.D., Director (Ret.) San Diego Museum of Man, P.A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, University of California at Berkeley

“In The Shamanic Soul, Daniel Moler guides those who are ready and willing through the reality portal into the shamanic realms. If you are new to shamanism or shamanistic pursuits, this book is a valuable resource with an impressive range, explaining terms, worldviews, energy dynamics, and shamanic practices, with an emphasis on the techniques of the Peruvian Pachakuti Mesa tradition.”


Joan Parisi Wilcox, author of Masters of the Living Energy and teacher of the Andean spiritual arts.



"In The Shamanic Soul, Daniel Moler has not only provided a template and guidance for an explorer to step into the Peruvian shamanic world, he has also provided support for the larger process we face of healing ourselves into vibrant beings of integrity, compassion and power."


Evelyn C. Rysdyk, internationally renowned shamanic teacher/healer and the author of several books including, Spirit Walking: A Course in Shamanic Power, The Norse Shaman and Shamanic Creativity



“It is those who heal themselves, and teach others how to heal themselves, who are the true masters. Daniel Moler is a true master. In his book, The Shamanic Soul, Moler weaves his profound understanding of an astounding array of spiritual traditions into an illuminating tapestry and, in doing so, brings light to The Self, as well as to the practicality and relevance of shamanic practices. A book of insight by someone who has undergone rigorous shamanic trials on many levels, Moler is a most credible voice of how being whom and what we are meant to be is the best way to heal our self, align with our true purpose and prepare us for the future.”


Steve Guettermann, author of How to Get Even with the Universe by Getting Right with the World and Julius V ~ Warrior Pope



“Daniel Moler opens up his life and practice in The Shamanic Soul and shows the transformative power of shamanism. He blends traditional workbook structure with personal storytelling to teach the concepts you need to build your practice. Uncover your unique path using modern and ancient shamanic practices. “


Jaymi Elford, author of Tarot Inspired Life



“Daniel Moler has created the most user-friendly, practical, accessible, and inviting resource for engaging in shamanic practice that I have ever seen. I know Daniel personally and his adamancy in trusting yourself and finding your own shamanic expression is matched only by his devotion to his own growth and spiritual development. A true modern shaman, Daniel reinforces the idea that we are all shamans regardless of upbringing, and that there is no “one right way.” Shamanism is a consciousness, a way of interacting with the living, animated world and no one is excluded from this elite club. With Daniel’s steady hand at the wheel, shamanic training is no longer something to be feared. And if you veer off-road, don’t worry…it’s all part of the plan anyway.”


Rev. Dr. Stephanie Red Feather, award-winning author of The Evolutionary Empath and Empath Activation Cards

“In The Shamanic Soul, Daniel Moler provides a thoughtful, well researched and wide-ranging exploration of shamanic magical techniques that skillfully blends indigenous wisdom, contemporary psychological ideas, and western esoteric practices. Enriched with personal stories and anecdotes, this book provides a masterful overview of the field, as well as plenty of practical exercises for readers to try for themselves. Recommended!”

Julian Vayne, author of The Book of Baphomet and Getting Higher: The Manual of Psychedelic Ceremony, co-director of The Psychedelic Museum, and trustee of The Friends of the Boscastle Museum of Witchcraft.


“This book is a gift to any who seek access to the creative power of their own shamanic birthright. In it, Daniel seamlessly weaves together a multilayered tapestry: The best of academic scholarship is offered together with powerful stories of his own shamanic apprenticeship and a host of accessible ‘practica’ that will greatly aid one’s own journey of discovery and transformation. Highly recommended!”


Bonnie Glass-Coffin, PhD, MDiv, BCC, Professor of Anthropology, Utah State University and Author: The Gift of Life: Female Spirituality and Healing in Northern Peru and (with don Oscar Miro-Quesada) Lessons in Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life

“I am not a shaman, nor have I ever been called to that path, but Daniel Moler’s The Shamanic Soul is a series of explorations into the work of becoming more open and better connected to broader realities which makes it of interest to most occultists and spiritual seekers. Daniel shares his personal experiences, teachings that he has received, detailed techniques, and their practical application with a writing style that is clear and a tone that fits the subjects. The traditions that are the overarching structures and the foundations in The Shamanic Soul come from Latin America but are a mixture of many cultures. This book is also a useful look into the process of blending systems, many of which were already mixed to begin with. The goal of the book is always evident, if you do the work the world you know will become larger.”


Ivo Dominguez, Jr., author of The Four Elements of the Wise and Keys to Perception

"An interesting and valuable read for anyone curious to delve deeper into the world of shamanic practice."


Melanie Marquis, author of Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot and Carl Llewellyn Weschcke: Pioneer and Publisher of Body, Mind, and Spirit
