The Infinite Well
Selina Beit Oren, Israel
JUNE 7-10, 2023
Movement Medicine practice is rooted in what we call the 5 Dimensions of Relationship.
• 1st Dimension: Self
• 2nd Dimension: Others
• 3rd Dimension: Community
• 4th Dimension: The Spirits and the Imaginal world
• 5th Dimension: The Infinite Well or the Source of life
In this weekend workshop, our central focus will be the Infinite Well. We will begin by taking an inventory of who and how we are in the everyday world of relationship. Becoming conscious of what is, gives us the choice to take responsibility and evolve so that the past can become the strength of ‘lessons learned,’ rather than a weight that we must carry with us.
Our work with the first four dimensions will create the stability from which we can expand and authentically connect with the Infinite Well, perhaps the most intimate of all relationships. In order to live an empowered, responsible and creative life, we need frequent and genuine refuge. Accordingly, we will spend Friday in ceremony, travelling through the medicine wheel below with the intention of deepening our connection to the Great Mystery.
South – Be Present and Reveal Yourself to the Mystery
East – Connect and dialogue with the Mystery
West – Release and Surrender to the Mystery
North – The Shining Light of the Mystery
Centre – Dissolve in the Infinite Well and Become the Mystery
Our work will help you to find more resilience, a deeper sense of who you are and open the doors in our hearts to the ultimate power of peace.
Ya'Acov has been studying and practicing shamanism all his life. When he was 21, he was hit by lightning and through this, began a three-decade-long journey of initiation. He has been recognised as a practicing shaman by Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon. Together with his wife Susannah, 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’s work come straight from the heart. He inspires people, often with great humour, to remember who they are.
He is the best-selling author of Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart (Hay House 2017), the creator of Shaman’s Song - Shamanic Journeys to Empower, Inspire and Re-Connect (Hay House 2018), and the Co-Author of Movement Medicine - How to Dance, Awaken and Live your Dreams, (Hay House 2009). His new book, Shaman – Invoking Power, Purpose and Presence at the Core of Who You Are was published by Hay House in Spring 2020.
Who is it for?
Anyone who feels a genuine urge to explore and discover the movement in the flow of personal, interpersonal, social and global change. A change that happens any moment.
The workshop is for everyone! People from the movement world, treatment, guidance and process management, as well as people from other fields who are interested in a groundbreaking process. No need for previous experience, only the intention and the desire to take part and be present in the moment.
Who and what?
YaAcob's visit to Israel, following his successful visit to Israel in 2017, 2018 & 2019, is part of a process built over the last six years, a blessed collaboration between the School of Movement Medicine and "Simply Peace" - an NGO that supports and creates initiatives of personal, communal and global peace activities.
Participants from Israel and abroad will come to experience the teaching of YaAcov, a great master in his field, co-founder and leader of the Movement Medicine method. Yaakov will share a rare knowledge in a four-day deep shamanic experience.
We chose to hold the workshop in the magical and supportive space of Selina Beit Oren, a bright, pleasant and professional space at a high level, surrounded by the nature of Mount Carmel with a breath taking view of the Mediterranean sea, to enrich and enable an authentic support.
