Transforming Fear Into Positive Action: A Shamanic Journey
While living with hunter-gatherers deep in the Amazon rainforest, John Perkins was told by shamans that in order to positively transform the modern world must “touch the jaguar” in order to stop global destruction. We know we must change, yet we fear change; a jaguar stands on the “bridge of our perceptions,” scaring us away from crossing out of old, destructive paradigms into new, more constructive ones.
Shamans, like psychotherapists, quantum physicists, and advertising executives, understand that we change reality by altering our mindsets, our dreams — our perceptions. When you “touch the jaguar,” you confront your fears and channel them into perceptions that can alter reality in positive ways.
In his presentations, John will highlight sections from his latest book, Touching the Jaguar, and share the process we can use to cross the perception bridge and transform our fear – both personally and collectively. John’s story is one of hope, an affirmation that by changing perceptions, we can transform our individual lives and turn a “Death Economy” into a “Life Economy” — we can create a new reality for what it means to be human on this planet

John Perkins focuses on transformation – personal, communal, and global. A leading authority on shamanism, he learned about the power of using perceived reality to change objective reality from shamans in the Amazon – and then with other shamans on five continents. He has used shamanic practices to help individuals, corporations, universities and governments. His 10 books, including the latest, Touching the Jaguar, have sold more than 2 million copies. In addition to his ground-breaking book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and other three nonfiction books on global intrigue, he has authored five books on indigenous cultures and transformation, including Shapeshifting. He is a founder of Dream Change and (along with Bill and Lynne Twist) the Pachamama Alliance, nonprofits dedicated to creating a regenerative, peaceful, and thriving world. He was awarded the Lennon Ono Grant for Peace, 2012.
