Today we welcome back John Perkins to the podcast. If you are new to John, he is the author of the New York Times bestseller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. He has written and spoken extensively on the global economy, American imperialism, and the so-called “death economy”.
However, there is another fascinating side to John. He has studied shamanism for decades, dating back to the late 1960s during his time in the Peace Corps in Ecuador. John is also the founder and a board member of both Dream Change and the Pachamama Alliance, both of which are organisations dedicated to establishing a world that future generations will want to inherit.
John’s latest book is called Touching the Jaguar – Transforming Fear Into Action to Change Your Life and the World. This is a book in which John combines his background in the global economy with his experience in shamanism, healing, and indigenous wisdom. Here at All Things Risk we strongly believe in the power of combining domains of knowledge and expertise and John provides that.
This is a conversation that is inspiring – with the authentic, grounded and wise type of inspiration we so desperately need given where things seem to be going in the world. In it, we discuss John’s background as an “economic hit man”, shamanism, ayahuasca, but the bulk of it focuses on fear and perception. This is what the “touching the Jaguar” metaphor is about. John also describes and exercise we can all do to help us make change happen. Enjoy!
