Over the years, we have worked together in my village and in the UK, where every year I join Ya’Acov and Susannah’s Long Dance ceremony. So I have come to know him both as a friend and as a very genuine and compassionate shaman. He has put his knowledge in the service of healing through music, sound and movement, and leads very powerful ceremonies that transform thousands of people, helping them to deal with their suffering and answer their most important questions. He is a great healer who has helped me in my shamanic spiritual growth.
Encounter on-line has been a precious meeting with my inner shaman as well as been seen and heard by the community. All aspects were gold to me to encounter this archetype of the inner shaman. Big respect and thank you
I received the wisdom of the ancestral lineage, the tools for rituals, and the tree of life... ooh so good! The connection back to the body, feeling the earth, the elements…so beautiful and so powerful. Noticing the fear of my own fire, my own inner power, inner warrior. To connect to that strength…to that potential… to feel free, alive, full of joy. Supa blessed to have joined this gathering and circle!!
With Ya'Acov, creating and holding this sacred space and announcing the steps and filling them with life, I could go very deep into, strengthen and intensify my connection to the elements, the ancestors, the tree of life and the lower and the upper world, the Universal Shaman, the Unbroken and to my Inner Shaman... and for me, personally, the most valuable aspect is, that I could clarify my purpose in life and to develop the certainty that I am held and supported by my Inner Shaman to fulfill this purpose

I have danced and worked in this field of embodiment, Movement Medicine teaching and Movement Psychotherapy for many years: originally as a primary school and Special Educational Needs teacher in London and since then in Newcastle as a freelance artist, Movement Psychotherapist and dance/aerial teacher. I’ve also co parented 3 children.
This fulfilling, challenging field of work took a turn for the richer and the deeper when I started my apprenticeship with the School of Movement Medicine … this deepening has continued and Movement Medicine is now an embedded and deeply valued part of my resources, my work and my ways. My Movement Medicine teaching includes work in nature, ceremony, SEER and ritual, open classes and workshops. I work with teenagers, adults living with Parkinsons and with children and families. I also weave Movement Medicine into my groups and 1:1 work with pregnant women and new mothers.
