Connecting Movement Medicine Communities across the globe.
Together we grow.

A warm welcome

-

Movement Medicine is a body-based movement meditation practice created by Susannah and Ya'Acov Darling Khan. It is an intentional movement and dance practice, bringing together ancient and modern wisdom by integrating shamanic, therapeutic, scientific and artistic intelligence. Movement Medicine offers transformative tools that re-connect human beings to themselves, each other, widening circles of community, as well as the wisdom and creative power of the natural world. Its practices expand our understanding of ourselves in relationship to everything else and open the door to a more full-bodied, full-hearted, open-minded living.

“By awakening the dancer that lives inside you, by giving the reins to the part of you that rests in the beat, and by connecting your mind with your body and your body with your heart, movement becomes your medicine. In the embrace of the dance, we shatter the binds of shoulds and shouldn'ts that squeeze the juice from life. Through this process, you will transform your relationship with the past, become more deeply engaged with the challenges and riches of the present, and unearth fresh inspiration to play your part in shaping the future.”

“We are proud to present to you the Movement Medicine Professionals that we have trained. The training they have each gone through is thorough and demanding. All Movement Medicine Professionals, including us, are required to have professional mentoring throughout their careers and to continue to be part of the Movement Medicine Association with its high professional standards. It is because of this that we can recommend each one of them to you. You can expect them all to hold the essential medicine that is Movement Medicine. At the same time, each of them is unique and brings the hard-earned wisdom of their own immersion in their lives, in this work and the other trainings and professional skills to their offering."

A growing community in motion

-

The Movement Medicine Association supports the work of Movement Medicine Teachers and Facilitators and through this nurture the community of Movement Medicine Practitioners. It was formed to nourish and grow Movement Medicine. The structure and methods of the Association are grounded in the work of Movement Medicine itself. The Association is held in the Movement Medicine Mesa, the balance of yin and yang and the alignment of body, heart and mind.

What we stand for

“Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free.”
