The Wounded Healer & The Power of the Unbroken

A Talk by Ya’Acov Darling Khan at Hay House’s I Can Do It! London.
29 September 2018, 2.30 -3.30 PM

Ya’Acov speaks from a heartfelt place of power and love for life. In this talk and shamanic journey, he will share the importance of connecting to the ‘wounded healer’ archetype and what he calls the power of ‘The Unbroken.’

Shamans are wounded healers. Initiation as a shaman means wilfully travelling into the shadow lands. The road across the arc of time challenges the initiate to transform the wounds of the past, both personal and tribal, into the medicine of the present. This healing journey is the basis of a shaman’s education.

A central aspect of our evolutionary journey as a species right now is to become conscious of the choices we each make about the meaning we give to our experiences. Out of this emerges the story we tell about who we are, about who ‘the other’ is, and about what life is.


Ya’Acov practices Engaged Shamanism which is an invitation to recognise our whole life as a creative project through which we can each discover, deepen and offer our medicine back to life. He says:

It brings us dignity and empowerment when we take responsibility for the powerful blend of the broken and the unbroken inside us. The acknowledgement of one and the reclaiming of the other creates the ground of our humanity and widens our heart enough to be able to see our way forward clearly. Our continued evolution as a species depends on us discovering the combined intelligence of body, heart and mind and through this, learning to work together. We are walking along the knife edge between an old dream of profound suffering rooted in ‘not enough-ness’ and a new dream where we have woken up to our potential to create a world that is just, sustainable and fulfilling for all.
