From a young age, Ya’Acov has been drawn to the down-to-earth connection with the spirit world that shamanism invites. He has been recognised as a practicing shaman (*) by Elder Shamans from the Sami (European tradition), and Achuar and Sápara peoples of the Amazon.
Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart is a magnificent adventure story that travels like an arrow right into the heart of what it means to be a conscious human being. Like all stories told with unflinching honesty and humility, this one has the potential to heal the reader, and help him or her remember who they really truly are. - Dr Christiane Northrup, New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
Ya'Acov Darling Khan has written an exquisite and important book that places the great and deep work of shamanism in its rightful context in this critical time in human history. Ya'Acov's story of his 30-year initiation into the shaman's world is an invitation for us to look deeply into what matters most to us and to find the courage to live from this place. - Lynne Twist, co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance and author of The Soul of Money
What strikes me the most of your story is the unyielding passion that kept you on track your entire life. You were passionate enough in your quest to not stop or get lost in your quest, despite the no-boundaries and even often times risky approach that you took. As it happens when the journey is real; it seems to me that in the end you did not “find” your path, but that instead you created your path. As much as your credit your teachers, I credit you for what you have accomplished. - Victor Sanchez, Author & Founder of El Arte de Vivir A Propósito
