Susannah And Ya'Acov Darling Khan's book about Movement Medicine.

Movement Medicine is Susannah and Ya’Acov’s book illuminating the practice and fundamentals of Movement Medicine as an embodied practice to bring us into alignment with our deep purpose here in this one precious life.

This book supports our understanding of the energetic and empirical connectedness with all life within which we all live as inter-dependent beings and shows how this connects to conscious movement practice. In this book you will find much to consolidate your understanding of the elements, the inter-connection of body, heart and mind, the weaving of past, present and future and personal fulfilment, inter-connection and realisation. Susannah and Ya’Acov give conceptual background, suggestions for practice (recipes to try at home) and intimate, personal life stories to illustrate.

"Susannah and Ya'Acov's book is just so readable, in particular the personal bits that brought the pages alive and validated my vulnerability in being human. My spiritual side so loved the delicious recipes, the intention and purpose written clearly in easy to follow instructions and most of all the way it resonated with a big "yes" from within my soul!" Francine Swaby

Reviewed by Wendy Stokes in Eternal Spirit magazine:
"We have seen with delight the paintings of the dancing girls of ancient Egypt and we know that King David danced before the Ark of the Covenant, so it is with acceptance that we take a modern journey of the dance of life that connects us with all life forms. Susannah and Ya'cov Darling Khan are dance specialists and their comprehensive knowledge is presented in an articulate and interesting self development course. Guided meditations are provided that use movement and dance to enter an inner and personal space which allows healing and rejuvenation whilst the art and creativity of self expression through movement is described. Movement is instinctive and therapeutic and necessary for our physical, emotional and mental health. Dance also encompasses the spiritual dimension and is the next step to joy and exhilaration." Review published in Eternal Spirit Magazine issue 10

"A quiet accepting smile and an immediate decision to buy the book was the only appropriate response when my wife handed me a copy of Movement Medicine with the words "this looks like your sort of book". The jewellery shop in a small village in South Africa stocked less than twenty books yet somehow had obtained one of the first copies of Susannah and Ya'Acov's book. My delight came yet another reminder of the playful interconnectedness of our world. It had been ten years since I had first driven the winding roads from Dartington to Rattery for my first dance experience with Susannah and Ya'Acov."

A Totnes resident had heard of this South African academic who loved dancing who was attending a Schumacher College course and invited me to accompany her. Five years later was fortunate enough to be able to return for a second helping. And then a week before unearthing the book, I had heard that Ya'Acov was due to run a weekend session in Cape Town in 2010 and had already signed on. My wife knew none of this! In Movement Medicine, Susannah and Ya'Acov have taken us into their world of dance at a multitude of levels inviting us to join them in awakening, dancing and living our dreams through the exploration of nine major gateways. Throughout the book they share their life stories which form the foundation of their growing awareness as well the reasons for the importance of each gateway. There is a breadth of wisdom from a variety of sources and an invitation at each stage to take time out to practice a ceremony or dance to deepen our understanding and practice. One night I was at the end of my tether with frustration with someone and I opened the book at random to find myself looking at the section on 21 Gratitudes. I followed the practice and a wonderful calm and acceptance of the situation and person came over me and I was able to handle the situation with far less fear and judgment the next day. Movement Medicine has arrived in my life at an important time as I continue my own teaching and learning on the challenges of leadership in complex times and the reconnection of mind, body and spirit. It is proving to be a real gift. Chris Breen 

"I found susannah's and ya'acov's first book wonderfully fresh, open and seamlessly intertwined with complimentary real life stories that touched me deeply and gave further meaning to my own dancing path. there is a youthful and expansive energy contained within the pages and it is brim full of excercises and ideas to encourage spiritual growth." Jason Rowe
