 A Movement Medicine Shamanic Journey through the 9 Cycles of Life

Our sense of self is a blend of unique essence with biographical, cultural and transgenerational history. On our journey towards integrating the dance into our day-to-day life, we must continually update the inner picture of who we are now. If we do not, we will continue to enrol each other into the undigested and unconscious stories of the past in a vain attempt to complete those unfinished gestalts. This causes all of us, and the life that we share this planet with, untold suffering.

Movement Medicine offers us the alchemical keys to develop the personal power needed to change the story we are telling and giving our life energy to.

In Who Are You Now, we will take an embodied shamanic journey through the 9 Cycles of Life:

Incarnation             Birth                     Childhood

Puberty                 Adolescence            Adulthood

Maturity                 Old Age                 Death

The intention of Who Are You Now is an audacious one:

  • To update your sense of self and bring a more empowered and dignified understanding to your journey through life so far
  • To take the next step in transforming the past into medicine
  • To dream your future and meet death as a teacher
  • To invoke an alchemical cocktail of loving self-acceptance and fierce self-inspection to embody and be who you are now, and give everything you’ve got before you die

In ritual, we will dedicate the harvest of our work in service of life and open the doors to a deeper relationship with the Great Mystery in its myriad forms.

I warmly invite you to discover Who Are You Now.

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 come straight from the heart. He inspires people, often with great humour, to remember who they are.
