SM17-4502-963John Perkins,

John Perkins—best-selling author, entrepreneur, and expert on shamanism and transformation—first learned that “the world is as you dream it” four decades ago while he was an apprentice to Amazonian shamans. After that he learned the lessons of an Economic Hit Man, through his work as chief economist at a major international consulting firm. Combining these experiences, he recently developed the “Perception Bridge,” a mindfulness tool that is the subject of his next book.

Join John Perkins to tap into your deepest creativity, honor your passions, realize your true potential, and shapeshift your ideas into projects, books, works of art, successful businesses, fruitful relationships, and ultimately the life you want. You also:

  • Break through barriers that have blocked your creativity
  • Develop a strategy for turning your “dream” into reality
  • Learn to shapeshift on cellular, emotional, and institutional levels
  • Transform “negative” emotions into positive action
  • Participate in shamanic ceremonies
  • Apply the “Perception Bridge” to shape your new life
  • Hone your skills for promoting your life’s work
