Sharing his experiences as a shaman which began in the Amazon in the 1960s, his life as an economic hit man, corporate executive, and consultant to Fortune 500 companies, John Perkins leads you on a journey of optimism for creating a sustainable, just, and peaceful world. “We have entered a period in history,” he says, “that is prophesized by many cultures as a time to leave behind a colonizing world view and recognize that we are one community of fragile species living on a tiny planet.” These prophesies are consistent with shifts in policies that John sees occurring throughout the corporate world.
