Engaged Shamanism is Ya’Acov and Susannah’s unique approach to bridging the creative and inspiring experiences that shamanism brings with the day-to-day way we live our lives.
Over the last three decades they have been discovering how to live the most fulfilling lives possible on personal, relational and professional levels, by doing this for themselves. During that time, they have brought their work to literally thousands of people from a vast variety of backgrounds around the world. Their intention is to share the down-to-earth and inspiring set of tools and practices that they have developed and found so helpful in their own lives.

The one most powerful compliment that I could offer you my sister Susannah, and my brother Ya’Acov is that your programs and your love, have given me additional tools and capability at this moment to remain grounded and centred during this devastating time in our history. A time when our humanity lacks answers and direction; and a time when the unconscious among us are lost.
This is the precise moment that we must activate and maintain our most vibrant relationships with the great spirit masters and our connections with our ancestors. This is what I see as the most valuable teachings that you both and other masters
have shared with me, and I am grateful that I am able to serve humanity in some way as a result.
Ya'Acov and Susannah are wonderful guides into the landscape of the body. Their guidance, sense of humor and spiritual truth never wears out. I have been supported to go deeper within and understand the community of life within myself. From this inner knowing I learn to relate differently to the outer world. The Online course "At the center of your circle" is a wonderful offer in beauty, music and drum and shared images that support the imagination. The course gives freedom and empowers each participant to journey on their own, in their time and create a unique path for themselves.
