MOVEMENT MEDICINE ~ Ya'Acov Darling Khan


Movement is Life, Movement is Change, Movement is Choice,
Movement is Creativity, Movement is Flexibility, Movement is Connection,
Movement is Presence, Movement is Communication, Movement is Medicine

Movement Medicine is an exhilarating body-based movement meditation practice that integrates artistic, shamanic, scientific and therapeutic wisdom. It offers a powerful pathway to reconnect to the wisdom of living from the heart, the joy of knowing who you are and the satisfaction of making your unique contribution to life. Movement Medicine is at the leading edge of conscious dance in Europe and we are so excited that it is seeding itself in the USA and at Madrona MindBody Institute.

Return of the Light with Ya'Acov Darling Khan

Bring the life of the dance into the dance of your life


In this workshop, you will:
• Learn to trust and follow the inspiration of the dancer within
• Give the body, heart and mind a ‘spring clean’ releasing what no longer serves you
• Welcome the return of the spring and the light into your dance
• Refresh and sharpen your sense of direction and your commitment to being who you are and giving all you’ve got
• Embody and dance your prayers for yourself, others and the world

This workshop is an opportunity to engage in a deep, joyous, dancing journey of personal renewal through Movement Medicine practice.

It is open to beginners and to experienced practitioners of all ages and abilities. The only prerequisite you need is the willingness to move and the courage to dare to dream.

Ya’Acov teaches with mastery, one ear listening for guidance from beyond. He creates a field of trance in which the psyche can build and mend. His workshops are vast landscapes where the soul can dream wholeness.
— Andrew Holmes, 5Rhythms Teacher

Ya’Acov Darling Khan

From a young age, Ya’Acov has been drawn to the down-to-earth connection with the spirit world that shamanism invites. He has pursued this yearning throughout his adult life, studying and practicing with many gifted teachers around the world. He has been recognized as a practicing shaman by Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon. His Movement Medicine workshops are inspiring, empowering, contemporary and practical and are attended by people from all walks of life.
