About Ya'Acov

The School of Movement Medicine is directed by the founders of Movement Medicine, Susannah and Ya’Acov Darling Khan. They teach a wide variety of workshops, including introductory Move! evenings, online webinars, weekend workshops, in depth intensives, and Professional Training.

Ya'Acov has been studying and practicing shamanism all his life. When he was 21, he was hit by lightning and through this, began a three-decade-long journey of initiation. He has been recognised as a practicing shaman by Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon. Together with his wife Susannah, he is the Co-Creator of Movement Medicine, a contemporary and dynamic shamanic practice designed to support people from all walks of life to be who they are and give what they’ve got. Ya’Acov’s work come straight from the heart. He inspires people, often with great humour, to remember who they are. 

He is the best-selling author of Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart (Hay House 2017), the creator of Shaman’s Song - Shamanic Journeys to Empower, Inspire and Re-Connect (Hay House 2018), and the Co-Author of Movement Medicine - How to Dance, Awaken and Live your Dreams, (Hay House 2009). His new book, Shaman – Invoking Power, Purpose and Presence at the Core of Who YOU Are was published by Hay House on March 31st 2020.

"Given this particular Coronavirus moment in time Ya'Acov and myself, the founders of Movement Medicine, are creating an online study hub for Movement Medicine called 21Gratitudes for those who want to learn, practice and become part of a global movement of transfomration.
