Book Description

7 Sep 2009

Movement Medicine is the kind of instruction manual you'll actually want to read. It is laced with personal stories from the authors' lives that are funny, inspiring and moving, as well as 38 recipes that will change the way you see and feel about yourself and your place in this world.

Anybody in a body can take part. So that means you. Take a deep breath. Your drum is calling you. Its rhythm is in your blood. We are being challenged as a species to raise our game. The 9 Gateways are a map and a guide for the critical times we live in. In them, you will see the ancient and the modern, the psychotherapeutic and the shamanic, the devotional and the traditional, the scientific and the mystical, all woven together into material that is strong enough to support you to 'Live Your Dream.'

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Bring the Life of the Dance into the Dance of Your Life

Movement Medicine is a grounding and uplifting modern meditation practice rooted in the traditions of ecstatic dance. It's suitable for anybody in a body. Everyone, no matter their age, shape or background, has a dancer inside them. This dancer has the capacity to access wisdom, vitality and creativity that we cannot access with intellect alone. The exercises in this book combine movement and meditation to guide you on a profound and transformational journey.

'Ya'Acov and Susannah are seasoned explorers of the psyche who have built up a fantastic and well-deserved reputation over the years.' - Barefoot Doctor

Movement Medicine invites you to take a journey to the soul through 9 Gateways. It is informed by a wealth of healing and transformational modalities, and is designed to support your soul to grow and flourish to face the challenges of life in the 21st century. The 9 Gateways are broken down into three journeys, each with a specific intent:

The Journey of Empowerment - the Gateways of Body, Heart and Mind

The Journey of Responsibility - the Gateways of Past, Present and Future

Living the Dream - the Gateways of Fulfilment, Interconnection and Realisation.

These 9 Gateways are all woven together to help you embody your essential self, expand your consciousness and live the most creative and fulfilling existence you can.

Susannah & Ya'Acov Darling Khan have studied with healers and shamans from the Amazon to the Arctic Circle, including an 18-year apprenticeship with Gabrielle Roth. Susannah's background is in anthropology, Gestalt, voice and music. Ya'Acov's background is in shamanism and visual communications. They both run the School of Movement Medicine, and have been teaching workshops and seminars around the world since 1989. They live in the south west of the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Treasure! 1 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
This a fantastic CD! In fact it is a double fantastic CD. CD One has 4 Movement Medicine Meditations on it (one of which spreads over 4 tracks) while CD Two has the music from CD One but without the voice over guidance plus a great bonus track which is itself over 16 minutes long. There is a Tree of Life Meditation, An Awakening the Dancer Meditation, An Elemental Journey (in Four Parts - for Earth, Fire, Water and Air) and A Journey to Meet a Wise Elder. The music is subtle and flowing played on a variety of mostly acoustic instruments. Unlike a lot of "New Agey" releases the music here is not pretending to be anything other than its self - it is not fake world music - though there are many influences and instruments from around the globe here - but like the Darling Khan's Movement Medicine work it is a thoroughly contemporary synthesis of many strands which ultimately stands on its own feet as a modern western system of shamanic, transformational, self-development.

I've attended workshops led by Susannah and Ya'Acov over the years and this CD release manages to both give a taste of their work and to give a flavor of how they teach in their workshops. These Movement Meditations help you to ground yourself in your body, to really feel and live your body so that your spirit can begin to go free. Even in a recording you really feel that Susannah and Ya'Acov's guidance if so deft, sure and above all safe. They really know how to hold the space - directing just enough to get you where you need to go - but always leaving room for the individual's own pace and for the different journey that each of us is on.

This release is a companion to Susannah and Ya'Acov's book Movement Medicine: 9 Gateways to Living the Dream. You could buy one and not the other but together they really give you some keys to changing your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music, Lovely Words 15 Sep 2011
By Hannah
Format:Audio CD
The C.D arrived very soon after I ordered it and was in good condition. The music is calming of mind and body, it's audible that the composers care a lot about quality of sound and meaning. Each sound stands beautifully and poigniantly alone and equally merges into the nature of the rest of the piece. The words (voice over on C.D. ONE) are really feeling & thought provoking too. It's fantastic to be given both C.Ds with and without the voice over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, Life inspiring x 4 Nov 2009
this is one of the most practical, helpful and insightful books i have ever read.
it makes sense on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. it evolves the beauty purpose and struggle of not only you as an individual, but also the whole universe and evey species, plant and human in it.

It also opens your eyes to how to be 'you' in relationships (intimate and wider.) and how you can control & relasie the way in which you are connected to the wider global community. it give you tools to self realisation and through that enables you to find your true passion in life. allowing you to manifest your wildest dreams for your life into a day to day practical REALITY!

an absolute necessity for modern living. an AMAZING guide to how we as individuals and as a global community can stop the mess we are in and step forward in a global evolution on a spiritual, environmental and just wave of ecstasy.

get this BOOK it will have a profound effect on your life, well it has mine and everyone i recommend it to.
