The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Furst

DEFINITIONS

Furst: Dan Furst is an actor, playwright, producer, astrologer, ceremonial artist and student of hermetic disciplines, including divination, sacred geometry, sound healing, and ritual theatre.

He has worked as an actor, singer, stage combat director, emcee, and announcer in the mainland United States and Hawaii, in Europe, India, and Japan. During his years in Kyoto, Japan, he was the first foreign professional actor ever to study and perform the classical kyogen comedy for a run of five years, in which he acted more than a dozen lead roles in theatres all over Japan. He is the only foreigner ever to receive a geimei, or art name, in the kyogen world. He founded the award-winning Sirius Productions theatre company in Kyoto, and was the voice of environmental conferences convened by Mikhail Gorbachev and H. H. the Dalai Lama.

Furst has written and maintains the popular Universal Festival Calendar on his website, as well as writing about important time windows for planetary transformation. While in Hawaii Dan also coordinated the Sacred Sounds group of Oahu, which he formed with sacred musician and sound healer Kimba Arem in 1996, and was a speaker, musician and priest at many Earth festivals and environmental gatherings.

In 2003, Dan was the first actor ever to play Mevlana, the Sufi poet Jelaluddin Rumi.

An accomplished astrologer, Dan Furst lectures, teaches, and offers personal astrology readings to clients worldwide. His latest book is Dance of the Moon: Celebrating the Sacred Cycles of the Earth.
