The Scientist and the Shaman

An Evening of Embodied Enquiry and Experience with
Dr David Hamilton PhD and Ya’Acov Darling Khan

To celebrate the launch of Ya’Acov’s new book – Shaman – Invoking Power, Purpose and Presence at the Core of Who YOU Are – we invite you to join us for what will be a fascinating and enlivening evening of embodied enquiry with two engaging speakers and teachers, exploring the ever-closer relationship between science and shamanism.

The evening will begin with a short meditation to bring us all to a condition of presence in the body, heart and mind and to allow you to find your personal intention for the evening.

Two short, interleafed talks will follow on the subject at hand. David and Ya’Acov will share their personal experience of each other’s disciplines and their own latest understanding of the crossover between them.

David will talk about the impact of the mind on the body and also explore the science of interconnectedness. Ya’Acov will talk about the rational mind and the imaginal world and the relevance of shamanism to our current opportunity/crisis as a species.

This will be followed by an embodied journey through the Tree of Life (Ya’Acov) leading into a Quantum Field Healing meditation (David).

The evening will end with some time for questions and answers.



David Hamilton has a PhD in organic chemistry and spent several years in the pharmaceutical industry, developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their health.
He is now author of 10 books, including, ‘The Little Book of Kindness’, ‘How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body’, ‘I Heart Me’ and the Amazon bestseller, ‘The Five Side Effects of Kindness’.

When Ya’Acov was 21, he was hit by lightning and through this, began a three-decade-long journey of shamanic 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. 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 – Opening the Door Between the Worlds will be published by Hay House in Spring 2020.
