Embodied Listening whole heartedly improves all of our relationships including the one we have with ourselves. This course offers the skills, knowledge and practices to be a life-long game changer.
In these times of physical distancing it could be said that "Deep listening is the new hug". Listening is a powerful life skill which most of us are simply not taught. It means more than turning off our phones and distractions, though that's a good start. It means actually showing up; in ourselves, with and for each other. It is simply, deep medicine for the body, heart and soul of our common humanity. This course is a step by step guide to learning this skill set, which will then be with you for the rest of your life, with the capacity to enhance ALL your relationships.

Susannah Darling Khan is one of the most experienced and dedicated of embodied awareness teachers. She has dedicated her professional life to playing her role in the evolution of our human presence on this planet into a humane human presence. Her work enables people to deepen their compassion towards themselves, each other and the biosphere.
For the last 3 decades she has been teaching life-skills through intentional movement practice with her husband, Ya’Acov Darling Khan. Teaching a wide variety of events in diverse situations, she has developed a sophisticated knowledge of the transformational power of embodied practice in supporting self-awareness and empathy for others. Throughout this time, she has developed and taught embodied listening skills to thousands of people around the world. Through this, they have become much better able to accompany others with warmth, honesty and respect. Now, more than ever, as a human community, we need these skills. Susannah’s intention is to bring this work to many more people worldwide through this online course.
Her background is in Gestalt Psychotherapy, Family Constellations and Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms, all of which have profoundly influenced the development of Susannah and Ya’Acov’s co-creation, Movement Medicine. She is currently deepening her knowledge of how our nervous systems work, both through study and through her relationship with the wild-born Exmoor ponies she works with. Her teaching marries ancient wisdom with neuro-science and intellect to profound effect. Susannah is the co-director of the School of Movement Medicine, works for the prestigious Kingsfund and is the co-author of Movement Medicine: How To Awaken, Dance and Live Your Dreams (Hay House 2007).
FILMAKER & ANIMATOR
I'm a multidisciplinary artist, working mostly in documenting and creating animations, to support the shifting of this paradigm . 10 years ago I created a small video production company, called NU frame, in Totnes, Devon UK. With the aim of giving a voice to all the alternative projects, focusing in creating a more caring, conscious and regenerative way of life. I'm a Permaculturalist and I've been practising Movement Medicine for the last 7 years.
Kata Máthé has been drawing all her life. With a background in traditional Graphic Arts, she started drawing live at events in 2013 to support learning and understanding with powerful images. Her passion is to build bridges through visuals: to create well-structured and aesthetic illustrations, infographics and animations that help people understand each other better and navigate the complexity of our world in a joyful way. She is dedicated to support communities and causes with her work that bring healing and compassion onto Earth. She has been dancing since 2005 and now she is a Movement Medicine Apprentice.

“The potency of these practices has been massively important in our day-to-day lives. They have helped us both to listen and to experience what it feels like to be actually listened to. We have been together for 34 years and are experiencing the harvest of all the work we have put in to ourselves and the space between us. At the core of it all? Embodied Listening. Learn these practices and apply them and your experience of being human will change. You deserve it and so do the people you love. And for that matter, so do the people you don’t.” -YDK
“Susannah Darling Khan has an extraordinary sensitivity for the deep listening of the vibrational field of consciousness. It is no surprise to me that Susannah listened to the call of these unprecedented times crafting a series of Embodied Listening practices to re-ignite this almost lost natural trait. Her years of experience and expert guidance will help us navigate through the wonders of deep vibratory listening. Thank you, Susannah for the vibrational listener and wise woman you are."
"Susannah has been honing her capacity for deep listening over decades. I have personally learned so much, directly from her that has shaped my own capacity for really listening to another. Developing my own embodied awareness has profoundly changed my personal relationships and how I am as a teacher. Susannah has crafted a course of practical pearls of accessible wisdom. I highly recommend this course which is tailored for these very specific times we are living in."
"The whole ethos of Susannah and Ya’Acov’s work is actually listening. Listening to yourself, listening to what your body is telling you and listening to others. I felt I was really heard for the first time in a long time and that helped me listen and understand what was going on within myself. I’m so glad she has made this course to share these life affirming skills with people far and wide."
