Ya’acov has travelled the world, met extraordinary teachers and experienced the wisdom of the shamans from the Arctic and South America to Wales. This detailed and honest account of the pathway he followed shines a light on an unconventional life. Few of us would have the vision and courage to enter the challenging world of shamanism and the reader has a sense of privilege in being invited to learn of his battles with fear, the confrontations with darkness and light and his own self. It’s a thoroughly compelling account, and an amazing adventure of a life that can inspire us all to adopt a more benign human presence.
