Holding the Rhythm Within the Change
By Hanna Maria
I like to find the Ďthemeí in each newsletter, which threads the articles together. This isnít always easy, like this time. Still, a slightly hidden thread here may be the importance of a daily (dance) practice and the benefits of a non-verbal practice for meeting what is. This year has reminded us clearly, change is always part of life. A daily practice offers a precious and stable frame, a holding, while everything around it keeps changing and moving.

However short or long, I believe meaningful daily rituals are the natural backbone to living life. A pulse. A rhythm. An offering to myself and life, an offering to me as life. Somehow, to me personally, this daily practice feels like truly being loyal to myself. Life IS deeply embedded in rhythms and cycles of various kinds and largeness, as we know. There’s repetition and a certain kind of commitment. In my time here (40 years) I have not yet been witness to the yearly spring flowers skipping a year, or the sun occasionally not showing up in the mornings.

I am currently nomadic, living in and passing different places, in search for a new home outside the city. Before leaving my last home (Cape Town), jumping into the sea was part of my regular centring and cleansing practice. Now, with much outer movement and travel, it’s been particularly valuable to hold this practice (movement, meditation, dance, yoga, writing, ...) and to take it with me to all these different places. An anchor. A red thread (I like threads ;-) that connects the places travelled. Something that’s certain. Something that returns.

For my ‘travel-home’ dance practice I have lately been enjoying Kristin’s brand new creations Klangkörper, which are guided Movement Medicine journeys in German. Kristin very skilfully creates and awakens the healing and multi-layered Movement Medicine landscapes within the German language and world, infusing the German fabrics with rich and beautiful word-frequency-images. The journeys are exquisite and just very well done!

Besides the daily rituals and practice, there are of course also the yearly and monthly cycles, ceremonies and celebrations. Which I loooove! Now coming up is the solstice (winter or summer solstice) and the School of Movement Medicine is holding another online Winter Solstice ceremony for that, so we can pray, dance, sing and connect 'together'.

I am super grateful for these (online) ceremonies! I feel this beautiful peace, joy, holding and belonging that my dance tribe keeps gathering, keeps connecting, keeps weaving those threads of dance, play, presence, ritual and commitment – together.
Thank you, Ya’Acov, Susannah and team!

Wishing you all a truly blessed time of solstice, of change, and of repetition and rhythm.

A Year of Greeting the Dawn
By Susannah Darling Khan
Dear all, I just wrote a long, beautiful poetic article sharing with you 21 gratitudes for this year I have just lived, and in which Iíve learnt so much. And now itís gone. All my and even YaíAcovís computer wizardry canít seem to bring it back. And the time I have to write this article has just run out.

I guess this mirrors many things about this extraordinary year, but what to do! I wanted to share what was in there with you. I remember being impressed, at the start of 2020, about the meaning of 2020 vision, but we just didn’t know what we were going to see. We’ve crossed a line and we are feeling it. That’s been our collective 2020 vision as far as I can see.

So, I’ll cut to the chase. I’m grateful beyond words to be alive, to be alive and warm and well fed, able to make a contribution and to grow older slowly, maturing into recognising the pure gift of being alive and able to dance, to walk, to smell the damp woods, see the stars, feel the cold water on my skin and relish my beloved’s warm embrace. I’m grateful to be part of a community and world wide web of people who seek to listen, to honour and respect difference and at the same time seek to live up to high standards of truth and kindness.

One day recently I was coming back from my weekly shop and realised that I had a queue of cars at my back, trying to get on and go faster. I stopped and let them past, and as I paused in the layby recognised that that is a role I know so well: “Go ON! Get a move on! Don’t you know some of us have got lives to live, people to see, work to do?!!!” Now I was the slow coach, enjoying meandering home with peace in my belly, gently swooshing through the lanes. I must be getting older! And I can tell you it’s very different here than I had thought. I’m loving going slower. I’m loving life at home and I bow to the guiding voice which whispered in my ear all last winter: “it’s time to stay at home and connect globally”.

I give thanks to the 21 Gratitudes Study Hub and to all those who have joined this ship. We are sailing on an adventure of ongoing learning through the lens of travelling around the 21 gateways of the Movement Medicine mandala. It’s deep for us; this adventure is stretching us in new ways and we are learning so much more about the work we thought we knew so well.

The destination is soulful and congruent living and the way as embodied, heartful practice grounded in conceptual understanding so each person can own their own journey. We are loving sharing the harvest of our three decades of teaching movement practice as a way to grow human consciousness in these ‘wisdom nuggets’. I am loving being a mini film maker and bringing our work into a living library. AND I’m loving that it’s hugely more accessible geographically and financially than our work in the room could be.

And I ache to dance together again, to dance together through the intensity, catharsis, joy and tears into those ecstatic moments when the gates open. And I feel I could hug people for several days, once it is safe to do so. And at the same time this lockdown has mandated a retreat, a vision quest, a profound re-arrangement and re-ordering of priorities and turned life inside out and upside down, which I am so grateful for.

And I bow to all the people who have worked so hard to keep the systems which feed and water us and take away the rubbish and to keep all of that going. I bow to all the acts of love and kindness and mercy which have been noticed and which have not been noticed this year. And I know so many people have had and are having a very hard time.

There have been many moments this year of feeling a level of agitation, pain, fear and distress which has been overwhelming. As if the collective distress of our species is palpable in my very body. And then it’s been so important to have our practice, to dance and dance and dance and also to simply name what we are experiencing. Especially to name the fear and distress that I’ve been feeling without any one specific cause. As if it’s been in the air. Again and again this has helped me to land: dancing it, feeling it, naming it. That simple.

I am super proud of my Embodied Listening course which is available now. I felt this was the best contribution I could make to these challenging times. And making it has changed my life, as it brought this skill set into focus in me and between Ya’acov and myself in a whole new way. I wanted this work to be accessible and though I’m sure I brought a whole host of assumptions to the table, I know I did pretty well to break it down into simple steps and to being a vibration of peace to the practices and the explanations. I had the unreasonable luck to be able to work with Kata Mathe who created cartoon style illustrations for the concepts with deep understanding and gentle humour. As always, scholarship places are available for this as well as our other online courses.

I want to share the harvest of my life so far and this is the beginning. Those books (thanks to some of you for asking) which I’ve been cooking for a while took the back seat whilst ‘Embodied Listening’ got made. But they are beginning to cook again.

I thank my mirror master Exmoor ponies for teaching me and reaching me and including me in their herd.

One night recently it was wild out there with blustery wind and the air cutting wet with cold rain. For some reason I had to go up to the top field where the ponies were. With rainproofs on and a torch in hand, I climbed the hill and huffing and puffing arrived in their midst. They are not used to night visits from me and ran off fast in four directions. I called and let them know it was me. And then an unexpected and beautiful thing happened. All four of them ran to me, seeming to be filled with joy that I was there. We simply stood together quietly for a while in a cluster of gentle happiness. I hope you can taste a drop of that feeling.

Later someone asked if I had been scared of the horses, and I recognised that that had not even occurred to me, powerful and with their wildness lit up by the stormy night as they were. This was when I realised that it’s a mutual trust thing that we’ve been developing, gentle step by gentle step. They are very powerful and very sensitive. Just like you and me. Like all of us. And this is what I am learning with them, which is seeping into all my offerings, the dance of listening deeper, the joy of connection and of simply being alive and being able to share that.

I take my hat off to the Movement Medicine professional community and everything that has been offered through all their creative work this year. I’m proud to be amongst you. www.movemementmedicineassocation.org

I’m grateful for everything I have learnt this year and most of all for the experience of staying home with my honey, watching the seasons turn and for watching dawn after dawn bring its light to the dark with the rhythm of our early morning tea. I love my life. I love my husband and how we are still getting to know more and more of each other. I love the work I am drawn to offer and I love to be alive on this sweet earth. I pray for all of us that we find the way through so that future generations may enjoy the air, the birds, the waters and the joys of life lived in connection with life.

A couple of other highlights have been:

Interview with Alexandra Pope about Ya’Acov’s and my menopausal journey. Thank you so much to dear Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer for creating this meeting.

This podcast is a recent interview about how Ya’Acov and I met, why ‘listening is the new hug’ and about the dangers and seductive attraction of polarization thinking and some stuff about ethical magic/prayers. Amy Solara and Jeremy Renta got me going!

With love to you and your dear ones, and to the web of life.

Happy Solstice. I hope to ‘see’ you at the ceremony this Saturday!

Love!

Susannah DK

Encounters With Life
By Ya'Acov Darling Khan
Hey guys, weíve just passed the darkest night of the year, the dark moon closest to the Winter Solstice which always coincides with the 4th night of Chanukah, the Jewish festival of light. As we hurtle ever onwards on this mysterious (and perhaps increasingly so) journey as human beings on earth, Iím here to share a few thoughts as we cross the bridge into 2021.

There’s no doubt that this has been a year in which I’ve been glad for all those years of disciplined practice. Whether it was T’ai Ch’i, 5Rhythms, Ch’i Kung, ceremony and of course Movement Medicine, I’ve been digging deep into all that flow, all those tears, all those prayers, all those mornings when I just wanted to roll over and go back to sleep. I recently challenged our community of apprentices to be doing a minimum of an hour of practice a day. I’ve been doing on average two. Not to push myself or to impress anyone. But because I’ve needed it.

The physical stability that embodiment practice brings gives much more ground for emotional fluidity. I’ve cried more this year than ever before. Sometimes out of the sheer agony of the ways we hurt each other and call it justice. Sometimes out of the pain of recognising my own stubborn holding on to ideas and stories that are always on the look-out for any whisper of a hook to hang them on. At some point with Susannah recently, I was in the theatre piece of cold, cut-off menacing quiet, digging my heels in about some issue or another and I just woke up, like getting lucid in a dream. ‘Yes, it’s true. I’m hurting. And so are you. And I think I’ve been over this ground enough now. I’m going to be responsible for that pain I feel and make my love for you more important.’ What a liberation! Perhaps at the ripe old age of 56 and eight months, fast approaching the age that my papa died (56 and 11 months) I’m actually starting to grow up.

I’ve been challenged to my core at times but what I kept on discovering is that who I am is right there, at my core. And life just has this way of providing the perfect petty tyrants who are button hunters – just looking for any sore spots to mess with. Well, if we teach that Movement Medicine is all about learning to dance WITH whatever life brings, then we’d better be practising it.

I like the at home version of myself. I get up at 6am. Susannah and I share our dreams and our plans for the day with a little tea ceremony. This is now infused with the oxytocin of puppy life. Our little Moxi is up and raring to go at 6am too. And we’re both learning how to make space for what she brings and what we all need. She’s a medicine dog for me – of course she is. She’s such a teacher about consistent leadership and clarity. I’m having to learn a whole new language and I’m so blessed to have Susannah at my side, with her years of learning from her ponies and her teenage dog training experience – I know I’d be making a mess of this without her. I am learning so much about myself. It’s rare that I have any crisis of confidence these days but little Moxi has managed to find those places that still need wrapping up and bringing home.

After tea, functional movement practice for strength and fitness. Then Movement Medicine and Chi’Kung, followed by cleaning out the chickens, collecting eggs and then a run down the field with puppy racing ahead and a cold-water meditation in the lake. Shower prayers follow – how holy is that warm water after the Wim Hof dip! Breakfast is followed by walking Moxi. I see myself walking our land, walking down the magnificent River Erme valley and I wonder at who I’ve become. I don’t know who I thought I’d be when I grew up. But I know that my reality has far exceeded my dreams.

My life now is much closer to the indigenous shamans I’ve worked with. Everyday rituals and simple prayer. In my practice, I feel my love for my family, our community, our apprentices and the wider community and it shapes me in simple prayer. I am consistently aware of death at my shoulder and how precious this day is. And twice a week, Susannah and I make each other our number one priority and we catch up and light each other up with where we’re at. Getting to know one person so very well and love them more and more deeply is the biggest blessing in my life.

And ceremonies arise when they need to. And they do. The pain in the world shouts at me through my shoulders, through my wrists and legs. I have to sing so loud and dance so deep to find the strength to be with the tensions and the suffering that is present. The illusion that we were on some merry-go-round fairy-tale trip to material Shangri-La has somewhat shattered for so many. What’s left is a shit storm of opposing ideologies, and opposing ideologies have usually led us onto the battle ground. Have we learned our lessons yet? Are we able to do little Daniel Schmachtenberger style sense-making yet? Dare we think and feel a little beyond our conditioned reactivities and certainties?

I can feel how much at times I want to withdraw. And one day I will. Who knows what creates change in this world – running around trying to change the world or being peace? I’ve done plenty of one. I’m discovering more about the other. My vocation means that there is nowhere to run to and there is nowhere to hide. The agony and the ecstasy dance side by side. Do you know what I mean? Again, I give thanks for the foundation of practice, practice, practice.

On the work front, we are continuing to discover so much more about Movement Medicine and these 21 gateways. Though I miss working in the room with you guys and I’m so looking forward to those ceremonies that are going to blow the roof off wherever it is we eventually get to be together again, I am totally loving the discovery of working online. Making short lessons for our 21 Gratitudes Study Hub keeps me on my toes creatively. Yes, we could put out what we knew last year. But now is the time and now is different than then. We’ve got several offerings for the Solstice and New Year. We know many of you are having to tough it out and we’re so glad that technology has given us the means to stay in touch.

Holiday Season Events Coming Up:

We’ve got our Tribal Heart solstice gig on 19th December from 19.00-22.00 (UK time) with special guest, the extraordinary Estas Tonne.

Encounter – The Inner Shaman in the Modern World Part One
I’ve been dreaming of how to bring my own particular predilection of working with the Inner Shaman to you guys more deeply and I’m delighted I’ve found a way. I’m going to be offering an intensive (I do mean intense – it’s not for the faint of heart) 6-week course from Thursday 25th February to April 1st.

Entrance to the course will be by interview. I’ve got a strong team of 15 assistants and you’ll be able to see full details at www.21gratitudes.com in the New Year.

Here’s a little excerpt from the write-up:

The course has limited numbers and is for committed seekers. It is for people who are determined to make the very most of their lives, by embracing their biography, their ancestry and using it all as material to create with. It is not for space cadets who think of shamanism as a competitive journey to have the most far out experiences as often as possible. It’s for people who wish to know who they are, where they come from, what their medicine is and most importantly, wish to make a positive contribution in these changing times.

In short, this course may be for you if you wish to:

  • Stand Up – and be more of who you are in this world
  • Grow Up – and take more responsibility for your life
  • Play Your Role – and be more of service to the evolution of our species
  • Build a solid and useful bridge between your sense of the mystery of life and your day-to-day

OK dear fellow humans, this is from my heart to yours. May the season bring the power of peace to you and your families and to all our relations. The Mystery really is Great and the time is now. One of the beautiful things about this past year for me has been to discover more of the dignity and strength of my own Jewish ancestry. And so, to end, here are some words from the Talmud that I have found particularly helpful in these last months.

With love and 21 Gratitudes for the chance at another journey around the sun.

YDK. December 2020.

"Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now. Walk humbly now. You are not required to complete the work but neither are you free to abandon it."

Movement Medicine in German
By Kristin Glenewinkel
Dear Dancers! Itís been my dream to create guided Movement Medicine journeys in German language since I started teaching in 2013. When translating the powerful Movement Medicine tools into my mother tongue, I find the vocabulary and images that match the vibrational field. I have taught many classes in the last seven years Ė mostly in German Ė and the album is the harvest of gathering my voice as a German MM teacher in Switzerland.

My experience of a regular practice that continues at home after receiving a teaching is very important. Daily practice is the backbone of any spiritual path. I have experienced this with practising Yoga as well as Buddhist meditation over the last 25 years. Movement Medicine is for me a profound and integrative modality that embraces creativity, therapy and the art of movement and so much more!

This offering is for all German speaking people who love the method and want to receive the medicine in their own mother tongue. And it might also be fun to dance to a guidance you don’t fully understand and let yourself be carried by the music.

I have been dancing with Ya’Acov and Susannah Darling Khan since 2001 and began an intensive training with them in 2010. I am a fully qualified Movement Medicine teacher, and am in continued professional training with Ya'Acov and Susannah. I've been teaching Movement Medicine since 2013 in Switzerland and sometimes on invitation in Germany and France. I am a trained physiotherapist, mother and yoga teacher. My understanding of the body supports my work and my guidance in the dance. My long training of the mind and heart in Buddhist meditation practice deepens my ability to hold space with compassion.

I feel called to overcome the divide between body and mind and to establish dance as spiritual practice, fully embodying the living heart.

My gratitude goes out to many helping angels and supporting spirits, and especially to the beautiful guidance of Ya'Acov and Susannah Darling Khan who are amazing leaders and keep refining the depth of the Movement Medicine Mesa. Danke!

Thank you so much. I wish you blessed times with the opportunity to deepen your dance practice at home.

A Call for Participants in a Research Project
By Dinah Pemberton
Hello, my name is Dinah Pemberton and I am currently studying a MSc in Consciousness, Spirituality and Transpersonal Psychology. I am doing an intuitive research project Reclaiming Your Virginity: Intuitive Inquiry, and I am looking for volunteers to participate. The study aims to help raise consciousness, and look for ways of how dance and creativity transform and honour the lives of women and men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse.

Recovering from any type of trauma is never easy, but for people who are survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA), the path towards transformation and healing can be courageous and a difficult journey. The long-lasting effects from CSA often manifests mentally and somatically, affecting the individual’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The three most common diagnoses given to survivors of CSA are post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. Due to not being able to openly express and share their stories when the abuse happened survivors have been unable to release their primal wounds such as denial, self-blame, numbing, guilt, and survival personality. Here in the UK, the recommendation for treatment for unresolved CSA trauma is through helplines, talk therapies, and medication. Non-Verbal modalities such as dance, art, or rituals for honouring are not high on the list for recommendations.

The embodiment of dance and creativity that calls to me remains in you, in your art of ancient lineage, rituals, and wisdom, which is known to help us to gently move into the intrinsic power that already exists within us. Dance is not about dance moves or being the perfect dancer. It is about intention, honouring, experiencing, and welcoming ourselves just as we are. Dance is a companion helping us to recall, download information, remedies, and medicine for transforming wounds into self-healing.

Right now, I believe humanity is facing a collective shift and I would like to contribute to the awakening in the rise towards the power of healing through the lenses of this intuitive research project. The study sets out to go beyond traditional support to help CSA survivors with their mind, body, and spirit survival skills.

I am looking for volunteers/participants who are CSA survivors, CSA dance/art practitioners/therapists, or dance/art practitioners/therapists who have worked with CSA survivors. The age range is from 18 years and over. I welcome various ethnicities, religions, genders, spiritual backgrounds, and volunteers/participants who are not religious or do not have a spiritual practice. The project is centred on the research question: How can dance and creativity transform and honour the lives of women and men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse?

Being a survivor of CSA and rape, the journey has been a struggle to voice – depressing, numbing, confusing, old memories resurfacing, and painful growing into adulthood. I have kept my story hidden and pretended to the world that I am ok. The personal motivation for the research project is rooted in the vows I took leading up to ordination, with the educational charity OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation. I was on a quest to trust, deepening my inquiry into self, and to know I am more than enough. In listening to the call, it brought me to a place of looking at the things in my life that had blocked me from connecting to the God of my understanding. Alcohol, addictions, depression, and unhealthy relationships were the most prominent, which led me into the hands of AA, the Open Monastery, and Ministers in Connection/Steering Group.

It was during a presence retreat I attended that the idea for the research project emerged ‘Reclaiming Your Virginity’ and the method ‘Intuitive Inquiry’. Intuitive inquiry (Anderson & Braud, 2011) for me is like a spiritual guide, it facilitates and assists the researcher to face ultimate fears, within a hermeneutic structure composed of five cycles. It allows the unfolding of a dynamic process, which invites a ritual for compassion and honouring to transform wounds into sources of inspiration for others. I believe it is time for us as CSA survivors, to welcome our lost soul parts back home to our bodies, give our attention to our inner self and what it is asking us to do. The body’s natural tendency is to heal and be healed and letting go of CSA trauma is inevitably threatening to the ego, but the spirit/soul brings something greater, deeper than the trauma.

The first step towards recovering and transforming CSA according to Levine & Fredrick (1997) is to enter into the recalling of painful memories as they are there to teach us to honour our body, what has happened, and that we have survived. When we begin to trust our body again, feeling the depth and allowing vulnerability, we have created a ritual for something special, inviting, and playful. We have entered into a mysterious journey through bodies.

The study aims to help raise awareness and improve an in-depth understanding of CSA, and find ways in which we can honour the trauma of childhood sexual abuse. It will hopefully encourage a shift in perception and alter the researcher’s, participant’s and reader’s way of seeing and being in the world.

If what you have read has touched you, and you feel called to participate in this project, which will take place next year please contact me at reclaimingyourvirginity@gmail.com for further information.


Dinah Pemberton is in her final year of studying for an MSc in Consciousness, Spirituality, and Transpersonal Psychology, with Alef Trust alongside Middlesex University. She's a mother of two beautiful children, an author of two books, a person-centred counsellor, and a OneSpirit Interfaith Minister.
