Touching the Jaguar

Transforming Fear into Positive Action

John Perkins

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 we 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 two latest books, Touching the Jaguar (2020) and Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, 3rd Edition (2023). The former includes a process we can use to cross the perception bridge and transform our fears – both personally and collectively. The latter describes the ways China has learned from US mistakes and successes and presents a plan for a global effort to end climate change and the other crises facing us. 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 being on this planet.

Offered as 3 satsangs and 2 workshops (subject to change)

As a major consulting firm Chief Economist John was advisor to the World Bank, UN, Fortune 500 corporations, and governments in many other countries. His twelve books, including the Confessions of an Economic Hit Man trilogy, Shapeshifting, Psychonavigation, and The Stress-Free Habit, spent 70+ weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, are published in 38 languages, and sold millions of copies.

John has lectured at more than 50 universities and been featured on ABC, NBC, CNN, Time, The New York Times, Elle, Der Spiegel, and others. John first learned about the power of using perceived reality to change objective reality when he was initiated by Amazonian shamans in 1968-71 and later from other teachers around the world; he has used this knowledge to help individuals, corporations, universities, and governments.

John is a founder of the nonprofits Dream Change and The Pachamama Alliance. He has received many awards, including the John Lennon/Yoko Ono Peace Prize – along with Lady Gaga and Pussy Riot.
