How The Plants Are Guiding Us To A New Consciousness
John Perkins, Author and Pachamama Foundation Co-founder: You are part of the most important revolution in history. A Consciousness Revolution. Everywhere people are waking up to the fact that our systems are failing. They – we – are determined to change. The glaciers are melting, the oceans rising. 62 individuals have more assets than half the world’s population. We live on a fragile space station, earth, and it is headed for disaster. We have to change. We need a revolution and the outcome of this revolution will determine whether or not we survive as a species. The plant world speaks loudly to us. It knows about extinction of species and about the power of adapting and evolving. The trees, the flowers, the grasses, the plants and fungi are guiding us to a new consciousness.
John Perkins first learned about the power of this revolution from the sacred Ayahuasca plant in the late 1960s when he lived with the Shuar deep in the Amazon rainforest and was initiated as an Ayahuasca shaman. Since then he has studied with shapeshifting shamans on 6 continents and here shares their wisdom, describing the magic of plants, the power they have to help us evolve, and the important role that each of us has in the Consciousness Revolution.
This video contains a 15 minute guided drum meditation to discover answers to an aspect of your world that you feel needs change. You will journey with a plant to help guide you to a new consciousness.

John was Chief Economist at a major international consulting firm and advised the World Bank, United Nations, IMF, U.S. Treasury Department, Fortune 500 corporations, and leaders of countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. After being brought back from the brink of death by a shaman in the Amazon he decided to blow the whistle on the ecologically destructive nature of capitalism and American Imperialism and wrote the New York Times best-seller Confessions Of An Economic Hitman. Followed by The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man in 2016 John brings the story of economic hit men and jackal assassins up to date and chillingly home to the U.S. It goes on to provide practical strategies to transform the failing global death economy into a regenerative life economy.
The first edition of Confessions Of An Economic Hit Man spent 73 weeks on the New York Times non-fiction bestseller list and has been translated into 32 languages. It, along with his other books, The Secret History of the American Empire (also a New York Times bestseller) and Hoodwinked, were ground-breaking exposés of the clandestine operations that created the current global crises; they set the stage for the revelations and strategies detailed in The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
John is a founder and board member of Dream Change and The Pachamama Alliance, non-profit organizations devoted to establishing a world future generations will want to inherit, has lectured at Harvard, Oxford, and more than 50 other universities around the world, and is the author of books on indigenous cultures and transformation, including Shapeshifting, The World Is As You Dream It, Psychonavigation, Spirit Of The Shuar, and The Stress-Free Habit. He has spent decades with shamans and indigenous elders in tribes such as the Shuar, Mayans, Kichwa, Quechua and Q’ero.
He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CNN, CNBC, NPR, A&E, the History Channel, Time, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Der Spiegel, and many other publications, as well as in numerous documentaries including The End Of Poverty, Zeitgeist Addendum, and Apology Of An Economic Hit Man. He was awarded the Lennon Ono Grant for Peace in 2012, and the Rainforest Action Network Challenging Business As Usual Award in 2006.
