- Part one

Your inner shaman in the modern world.

An Intensive 6 Module Online Course
with Ya’Acov Darling Khan

your Inner Shaman

We all have an Inner Shaman inside us and are all capable of accessing shamanic states. 
In this intensive online journey, Ya'Acov will guide you to encounter your Inner Shaman in a safe, embodied way so that they become a genuine ally in your daily life.

For committed seekers.

Encounter is for people who are determined to make the very most of their lives, by embracing their biography, their ancestry and using it all as material to create with.

It is not for space cadets who think of shamanism as a competitive journey to have the most far out experiences as often as possible. It is for people who wish to know who they are, where they come from, what their medicine is and most importantly, wish to make a positive contribution in these changing times.

What people have to say

the journey

The Inner Shaman is part of our humanity. To encounter them and discover what they know is not reserved for some special brand of human being. They are as down to earth as you can get whilst remaining connected to the stars. They walk the bridge between how we imagine life to be and how it actually is. And discovering them is a matter of choice, practice, determination and often, humour.
In honour of your learning journey, you'll receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
Encounter Part 2
Encounter is part one of a four part series.
In Part Two, we'll work with the Inner Shaman’s relationship to sexual energy, the animal intelligence of the Shaman’s heart, Vicious circles and medicine circles, and the Movement Medicine alchemy of turning lead into gold. This all adds up to a deepening of your relationship to the Inner Shaman and the basket full of medicine that they hold already within you. I look forward to working with you.
“Your Inner Shaman recognises your place in the web of life. They are in touch with the indigenous wisdom of your people and your land. They honour your lineage and ancestors and are aware of your responsibility to the generations that will come after you. They recognise the importance of the cycles of life and understand the connection between how you imagine the world to be and how it is.” 
- Excerpt from Shaman.

ya'acov darling khan

Ya'Acov has been studying and practicing shamanism all his life. When he was 21, he was hit by lightning and through this, began a three-decade-long journey of initiation. He has been recognised as a practicing shaman by Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon. Together with his wife Susannah, he is the Co-Creator of Movement Medicine, a contemporary and dynamic shamanic practice designed to support people from all walks of life to be who they are and give what they’ve got.

Ya’Acov’s work comes straight from the heart. He inspires people, often with great humour, to remember who they are. He is the best-selling author of Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart (Hay House 2017), the creator of Shaman’s Song - Shamanic Journeys to Empower, Inspire and Re-Connect (Hay House 2018), and the Co-Author of Movement Medicine - How to Dance, Awaken and Live your Dreams, (Hay House 2009). His new book, Shaman – Invoking Power, Purpose and Presence at the Core of Who You Are was published by Hay House in Spring 2020.

from the community

Susannah is one of the most clear and embodied teachers I have had the pleasure to work with. I experience her to be able to listen deeply way beyond words, from heart, mind and body, and in her listening to bring forth new possibilities. I have experienced the transformative, affirmative and supportive power of her listening. To have her distil the essence of her practice into a course for others to learn from is a true gift. I know that we can all learn to practice this art of embodied listening and become richer for it.


I can feel that the intention of this course is to pass on this wisdom of Embodied Listening so that people can really use it in day to day life, to live in alignment with who they are. It’s simple and comprehensive. I hear you so clearly and I enjoy that each section is short, with illustrations like wonderful, clear cartoons. Having the script of your teaching in writing is so helpful. Thank you. I am sure this course will go very deep and far.


Susannah has been crafting and honing her capacity for deep listening over decades of dedication to being with, learning from and teaching others about the potency and power of embodied listening. I have personally learned so much, directly from Susannah over the years, that has shaped my own capacity for really listening to another and developing my own interoception which has profoundly changed my personal relationships and how I am as a teacher. Susannah has crafted a course which distills these decades of teaching to make these practical pearls of wisdom available and more accessible to you. I highly recommend this course which is tailored for these very specific times we are living in.
