Please help us get this message out to a wider audience by pre-ordering it here:

This book is a deep, transparent, honest and luminous account of Ya'Acov's journey as a human being and as a shaman. To tell this kind of story in a way that honours the magic AND stays grounded and real is not an easy thing to do, and he's done it. I guess it'll be one of those books that you can't put down and don't ever want to end. I sense that this book is not only going to touch many people deeply, but also contribute to the ongoing conversation around the role of shamanism in the modern world. And I'm one proud wife! Thank you! Susannah Darling Khan

Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart by Ya'Acov Darling Khan
Let me share a prediction with you. Once you pick this book up, you’re not going to want to put it down. It will blow your mind and blow your heart open too. And I own my bias; I am Ya’Acov’s wife. However, I am not alone in feeling this. There are stunning reviews from many well known and respected people from many fields in the book. Here is one review from Debra Hall, one of the first to read the whole published book and give feedback: "There's a beautiful, modern greek word - Meraki which means to leave a piece of yourself -either your soul, creativity or love in your work. This book has all three and the feeling of soulfulness, love and honesty is visceral and very affecting. I found myself feeling very emotional right from the beginning in both explicable and inexplicable ways. It is no small feat to write about yourself, your life and what has mattered, still matters most to you from the incommensurable- the part which is completely unique but has a longing to share itself in order to be an inspiration, blessing and shelter to others. This book has done that with generous abundance. At the same time as being a fantastic, compelling piece of story telling embedded with wisdom, it is also a call to the soul in each one of us to overcome whatever inner and outer obstacles we face and become fully ourselves, not perfect, (the sharing of perceived imperfections and mistakes is one of the most beautiful aspects of the book) but who we know in our heart of hearts we can and deeply want to be. I love it, I can't recommend it enough." Debra Hall
