Ya'acov Darling Khan

Ya’Acov Darling Khan, the author of the best-selling Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart (Hay House 2017) and Shaman (Hay House 2020), is known for his blend of down-to-earth strength, humility and humour. He is acknowledged as a practicing shaman by people who work with him world-wide and by indigenous elder shamans and communities from the Arctic to the Amazon.

Susannah Darling Khan

Susannah’s being, work and life are all about connection: body, heart and mind; individual self with the community of life on earth; the manifest and the world of spirit. Susannah’s knowledge of the unique magic inside every single one of us supports others to dare to share our inner worlds.

Mr & Mrs Darling Khan

We recognise relationship as spiritual practice. After all these decades of a potent cocktail of love and hate, seeing and blindness, hurting and healing, we have come to a new ground in the space between us. On this ground, we are discovering the delicate and demanding work of breaking the chains that have bound us to this ancient battle between feminine and masculine inside us, as well as between man and woman.
Our Relationship


Writing is powerful part of our lives, we have written four books including Ya’Acov’s best-selling Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart (Hay House 2017), Shaman (Hay House 2020), Movement Medicine (Hay House 2009) and The Walrog.

About the Book 

"A gentle spirit suffuses this book, which nonetheless brooks no nonsense."
- Charles Eisenstein

Movement Medicine Shaman and best-selling author Ya’Acov Darling Khan has come up with a diamond of a book for anyone who wants to get to grips with the essence of shamanism and increase their sense of connection to themselves and the world around them.

Ya’Acov’s honest and down-to-earth inspiration will empower you to encounter and work with the powerful archetype of the inner shaman in order to take responsibility for your life and dreams and bring them to earth.

The book is designed as a profound embodied journey for you, whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced practitioner, to bring the power, purpose and presence of the inner shaman into your day-to-day life.

“The practices that Ya’Acov is sharing with you are strong medicine and they will support you to meet or deepen your connection to the Inner Shaman. This part of you remembers who you are, what you are connected to, who your people and your guides are, and what your work is. They are also tuned in to the spirit guides of the forest and the universe. They can show you the necessary changes you need to make in your life in relationship to yourself, others, the community of life, your ancestors and guides and to the source of life itself so that future generations can survive and thrive in this world.”
From the foreword by Manari Kaji Ushigua Santi, Shaman and Leader of the Sápara Nation of the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador

About Ya'Acov

Ya'Acov has been studying and practising 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 as creative as they can be with the challenges and opportunities that life in a body on earth presents. The purpose is to help people recognise who they are and be able to fully give what they’ve got. Ya’Acov’s work come straight from the heart. He is on a mission to make the inner shaman archetype go viral. He believes that the inner shaman holds much of the medicine, wisdom and embodied knowledge of our inter-dependence with the whole web of life, that is our world is crying out for. His life's work is to support the re-emergence of real, practical and inspiring shamanic practice that is deeply  engaged with the profound diversity of the world around us, and of benefit to earth and all of life.

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).

"Ya'Acov is a gifted healer of the highest integrity who has written a masterpiece which 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.”
