Ya’Acov Darling Khan, the author of the best-selling Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart – the Real-Life Initiation of an Everyday Shaman (Hay House 2017), and the recently released ‘Shaman – Invoking Power, Purpose and Presence in the Core of Who YOU Are’ (Hay House March 31 2020), is known for his blend of down-to-earth strength, humility and uplifting humour.
He is acknowledged as a practicing shaman by the people who work with him world-wide and by many indigenous elder shamans and communities from the Arctic to the Amazon.
Travelling the world for more than three decades to work with groups delivering Movement Medicine, Ya’Acov has spoken to audiences across the globe at some on the most pre-eminent platforms driving the transformation of world culture and sustainability (California’s Esalen organisation, The Embodiment Conference), as part of line-ups which include our most influential voices of spirituality today including Marianne Williamson and Ken Wilber. Presently, he is offering his work online through 21 Gratitudes and his one-to-one work.
Ya’Acov’s message? Contemporary embodied Shamanism, and the Inner Shaman in YOU, far from being irrelevant, fantastical and a way of avoiding reality, can provide keys to restoring and evolving our connection to ourselves, to each other and to the power and beauty of nature and solving our interpersonal and world issues in the process.
