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.
Working with Ya'Acov is a gift. So grounded and committed to truth with a humility which belies the depth and gravitas of his life and professional experience, to have the privilege of working with him is to say a resounding yes to your own healing and expansion. Unquestionably one of the most powerful and authentic teachers I have experienced, I cannot recommend him more highly.
Ya’Acov is a gifted healer of the highest integrity. His work will help you understand, embrace and harness the power of your Inner Shaman. His words and guidance serve as a path to live with greater purpose and create a world where we can turn suffering into healing. Thank you, Ya’Acov, for being such a blessing, in and for our world.
The Phoenix work with Ya’Acov and Susannah is one of the most important tools I have worked with on my personal journey in Life. I have used it often during my journey with Movement Medicine and it has really supported me in transforming a lot of shame – not being good enough! – being wrong! – do I have the right to be here on Earth? etc. Without the Phoenix I would not have been where I am right now – it has simply guided me to come back home to my essence, to be able to live much more fully in contact with my True Self and my Soul.
The Phoenix Retreat is the most transformative thing I have ever done. I feel very empowered by the tools we were given to become conscious and dissolve patterns we don’t need any more. And how beautiful and encouraging is this way of creating a new story, a new future for our lives!
Phoenix Rising is a fantastic, strong and deeply magic tool… I feel like I finally arrive somewhere with all my potential and talents that I carry as well as with my fears and limitations.
