A Movement Medicine Inner Shaman Journey for Humans Who Care for Life
With Shaman and Co-Founder of Movement Medicine, Ya’Acov Darling Khan
What a wonderful and challenging time to be a human being! Though our future and the future of the next generations is in threat through the unsustainable ways we live as a species in the modern world, there is also a global movement of people waking up and standing up to meet the challenges we face.
This workshop is for all those who are working for change. In order to give our best to this life and not to burn out, we need to be resourced. The Inner Shaman is an ancient archetype that any of us can access with a little courage, focus and commitment. They are that part of our human inheritance that is already connected to the potency of nature inside and beyond us. They live with the law of reciprocity, the equilibrium of giving and receiving on all levels, that helps us to remain in dynamic and healthy balance in our lives. For indigenous people, to think clearly means to listen deeply and through the simple practices of Movement Medicine, that is what we will do.
During this profound journey, we will give space to the body, heart and soul of where you are in your journey. We will honour the work you are doing and in the supportive and safe atmosphere, unpack and release some of the stress and pain of being awake to the suffering and damage in the world. Entering into simple ritual, we will seek to strengthen your resilience and your capacity to take in the gifts that life brings. We will re-focus our intention to know our deepest purpose and to serve life in the best ways you can.
- Re-Source yourself
- Connect with your Inner Shaman
- Re-Focus and discover the importance of reciprocity in all areas of life
- Learn excellent tools to stay embodied and deepen your resilience
