Your Teachers

Ya’Acov has been studying and practicing shamanism all his life. When he was 21, he was hit by lightning and resolved to learn to use the shamanic gifts he had experienced as a child. He has been recognised as a practicing shaman by Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon. 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 teaches straight from the heart. His work inspires people, often with great humour, to remember who they are and give what they’ve got. He is the Co-Author of Movement Medicine – How to Dance, Awaken and Live your Dreams, (Hay House 2009) and the author of Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart (Hay House 2017).

Course Reviews

This course is brilliant. I have been a drum maker for over 20 years and can say that working with the drum has changed my life forever. Yacov’s teachings are clear and practical and filled with a depth that can only be reached by dedicated and surrendered practice. His way of teaching reaches the heart and made me pick up the drum and join him right away. Anyone that follows this course will find a path that leads straight into the essence of this ancient way of the shaman’s drum.

I have just completed the three modules of the The Shaman’s Drum and wanted to let you know how truly moving this experience has been for me. The ’traditions’ that you shared provided meaning and foundation to better understand the importance of drumming, which I had never previously known.
My experience has been so important and enjoyable that I have also just enrolled in your course ‘Standing at the Centre of Your Own Circle: The Elementals of Engaged Shamanism’ which I can’t wait to begin!
