While living with hunter-gatherers deep in the Amazon rainforest, John Perkins was told by shamans that 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 upcoming book, Touching the Jaguar, and share the process we can use to cross the perception bridge – 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
Offered as 2 satsangs and 2 workshops (subject to change)
