Ya'Acov Darling Khan
Ya'Acov has been studying and practicing shamanism all his life. When he was 21, he was hit by lightening and resolved to learn to use the shamanic gifts he had experienced as a child.
He has been recognised as a practicing shaman (*) by Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon.
His workshops are inspiring, empowering, contemporary and practical and are attended by people from all walks of life.
He and his wife Susannah are the creators of Movement Medicine, a contemporary and dynamic practice designed to support people from all walks of life to be who they are and give what they’ve got.
They are the Founders of The School of Movement Medicine that offers a full curriculum of study worldwide including Apprenticeship and Professional Training. He is the Co-Author of Movement Medicine - How to Dance, Awaken and Live your Dreams, (Hay House) and he and his wife have created numerous CDs.
(*) ‘Shaman’ means traditional healer. It is a much over-used and maligned word and I use it with caution. It is not something that one can call oneself. It is a vocation and a student is traditionally given this ‘job title’ by their elders and teachers at a certain point in their journey. As with any vocation, one initiation is just the preparation for the next.
