An ancient indigenous technique for identifying and pursuing your higher purpose can unlock hidden potential, transform your business practices, and support you in this time of transition.
We have entered a time prophesied by many cultures for shapeshifting into higher consciousness. Polynesian shamans shapeshift through oceans, Amazon warriors transform into anacondas, Andean birdpeople and Tibetan monks bilocate across mountains. These shamans have taught John Perkins that shapeshifting -- the ability to alter form at will -- can be used to create
a new reality, techniques that are particularly useful during this time of planetary crisis.
A great way to end your week and begin your weekend is to awaken your body, mind and heart through a series of powerful, playful movements and breathing exercises that shake up stagnant energies. Guided by Hemalayaa, these yoga and Indian dance inspired movements will help you find a sense of inner freedom, and an expression of wholeness that genuinely allows you to embrace yourself from the inside out.
Since 1968 John Perkins has trained with shamans and other healers, teachers, and "miracle workers" around the world. He has learned that all life is energy and that personal and global transformation occur when we alter our energy patterns. This can happen on the physical, emotional, and psychological levels -- as well as for governments, businesses and other institutions. In this session, John teaches you how to apply these approaches to your personal life and also for helping others transform -- friends, family, communities, the world!
