Movement Medicine


Movement Medicine is a contemporary practice rooted in ecstatic dance, which integrates shamanic, therapeutic and devotional pathways. Developed by Ya'Acov and Susannah Darling Khan, and influenced by their many years teaching 5Rhythms, it offers body-based ways of knowing who and what we are. Its purpose is to facilitate healing, growth and connection to the sacred.

The Movement Medicine maps are structured around the mandala and their essential vessel is the Dance. The core movement practices are the Tree of Life meditation, dancing the Elements and the M.E.S.A. work. Everything is underlaid by an awareness of the ultimate Oneness of all things and the sacred polarities of Yin & Yang. Alongside and around the dance, Movement Medicine also includes ceremony, poetry, singing and a number of other pathways.
