Are you ready to take part in the most important revolution in history… to harness ancient shamanic practices, awaken a fuller spectrum of your consciousness, and express your soul’s power?
It’s time to break free from the limits of your mind and the “trance” of western culture in order to co-create a more conscious, abundant and sustainable world.
Glaciers are melting and oceans are rising. Sixty-two individuals have more wealth than the combined assets of half the world’s population. And 7 out of 10 people live in countries where economic inequality has worsened in the last 30 years.
Perhaps the most important statistic of all: less than 5% of the world’s population lives in the U.S., yet we consume almost 30% of the world’s resources.
What do all these numbers add up to? A depleted, unstable and less hospitable world.
The ego-driven quest for endlessly accumulating material possessions has proven to be spiritually hollow, emotionally unsatisfying and environmentally unsustainable.
This broken system has created a failing global economy, one that John Perkins and other economists refer to as a Death Economy because it destroys the resources that support it and depends on militarization — the killing of resources and people — for its survival. It’s time for this unscrupulous and corrupt system to end once and for all.
As we stand at the precipice of this nightmarish dream, the big questions being asked of us are:
- How can we create a Life Economy, based on cleaning up pollution, regenerating devastated environments, recycling, and developing new technologies for energy, transportation, agriculture, communications, banking and more?
- How can we awaken from the unconsciousness of this dreadful dream to call forth a more enlightened, sustainable and empowering vision for ourselves and our planet?
- What can we do to make this incredible opportunity to participate in the greatest revolution in history as appealing as possible?
We access the ancient wisdom that shamans and healers from around the world have developed over millennia to empower us to literally change the form and content of our minds and bodies, which creates a whole new world of possibilities.
In other words, we shapeshift. By transforming ourselves, we can transform reality.
A Tale of Two Realities
There are two primary forms of reality: objective reality and perceived reality.
Humans, as far as we know, are the only life forms impacted by perceived reality.
A computer is an objective reality. The thoughts we express on it are perceived reality. Culture, economics, corporations and governments are perceived realities. We codify ideas about them into laws, which then impact objective reality.
John Perkins offers the following personal example:
Some years ago I joined the Peace Corps. I’d grown up in a prissy New England prep school where my dad taught French. The PC sent me to live with hunters and gatherers in the Amazon rainforest. I moved from an often snow-bound New Hampshire house to an open-air thatched-roof hut in the steamy rainforest.
Early one morning I got up with the family I was staying with and turned my transistor radio on to a station high in the Andes. Music blasted through the hut. I was shocked when the entire family dashed out and hid in the forest. After a while the man of the family came back. Carrying a spear, he crept up on the radio and knocked it over. It kept on playing. Finally, he sat down beside me and stared at it for the longest time. Then he turned to me and said, “All right, tell me the secret. How’d you get all those people into that tiny box?”
The radio was an objective reality. The people in it were his perception of reality.
Shamans describe this perceived reality as “the dream.” They say that “the world is as we dream it, as we perceive it.” To change ourselves and human societies we need to shapeshift the dream: our perceived reality. This can be personal, communal, global … or all three.
Whether your goal is changing your career, improving a relationship or transforming the world, it’s important to recognize that everything begins as a dream and that everything is made of energy. To a shapeshifter, emotions are a powerful form of energy. To recognize this is to understand that your personal power resides in how you choose to focus your energy, including how you direct your emotions.
The Power of Shapeshifting
In his travels and studies across five continents, John discovered that the common thread throughout different types of shamanism is the basic definition that “a shaman is a woman or man who journeys to other worlds and uses the power, wisdom and energy from these other worlds to affect change in this world.”
Shapeshifting is a potent way of changing both perceived and objective reality. It awakens a fuller spectrum of your consciousness through the power of journeys and ceremonies that access the subconscious and superconscious.
When you journey with specific techniques, you can effect rapid changes in your perceived reality. By changing the way you see your life, dissolving disempowering stories and dysfunctional patterns, refocusing your passions and directing your energies toward more beautiful outcomes, you also change objective reality — yours and that of the world around you.
In this 7-session course, John will share the potent tools he’s gathered from around the world to empower you in your capacity to evolve more rapidly and joyfully.
The course modules will draw from the Amazon and Andes, from the Himalayas and Africa, from North American indigenous peoples and Middle Eastern Bedouins.
The Benefits of Shapeshifting
The shapeshifting techniques you’ll learn will enable you to “reboot” yourself. They can be used for healing and transformation in many realms, ranging from the very personal to social and business domains. You’ll clear negative emotional residue and dissolve outdated beliefs about yourself.
You’ll learn a powerful set of skills for shapeshifting reality — for yourself and societies around you. You’ll become an integral part of the revolution to transform failed systems into ones that future generations will want to inherit.
Shapeshifting occurs in three areas: cellular, emotional and institutional. Through working these three levels (and the various elements of each), you learn to transmute negative, dense or blocked energies and channel them into your highest purpose.
Our bodies are manifestations of energy. When you learn to conduct and transmute energy, you liberate amazing abilities for healing, loving and changing yourself and the world.
Support from a Master Guide
John Perkins is a shining example of the power of this deep reboot. He was literally an “economic hit man” (EHM) profiting from exploiting developing countries before shifting himself into a leading teacher of 21st-century shamanism, a New York Times bestselling author, coach for corporate CEOs and the co-founder of one of the most significant shapeshifting nonprofits in the world, The Pachamama Alliance. Its “Awakening the Dreamer Symposium” is taught in 83 countries.
John’s life is one of joyful service to the world. Not only is he a living example of the work, he’s a powerful teacher of the methods he feels blessed to have learned from shamans around the world, methods you’ll discover in this course.
John has devoted his life to changing the world by combining his work as a shaman (described in 5 of his books, including Shapeshifting and The World Is As You Dream It ) with his experiences as an economist and corporate executive (described in 4 other books, including The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and Hoodwinked).
His program interweaves ancient traditions with the demands of a modern revolution. He says:
Everywhere I go I’m humbled by the amazing numbers of people who are waking up to the fact that our systems are failing. We simply must change. We must and we will win this revolution! Shapeshifting shamans have lit the torch that guides us into the new reality.
There is no doubt that major changes — nothing short of a revolution in consciousness — are required. In this course you’ll acquire tools for HOW to shift more rapidly, easily and joyfully.
If you’re ready to be part of the most important “evolution” in history — to begin harnessing ancient shamanic practices, awakening a fuller spectrum of your consciousness and expressing your soul’s power — this course is for you.
