5.0 out of 5 stars Helping us to step into the shoes of our own true self, 6 Aug. 2008

This review is from: Shape Shifting: Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation (Paperback)
I admire John Perkins and his work for many reasons . . . not least that he dares to tell the truth. This book is for those who know that we, humans, both individually and collectively have to change how we see life and live it. John's words give us hope . . . and a very real alternative.

In this insightful book he suggests that our current human society is largely run by what he calls faithless dominators, as compared to faithful shapeshifters. Throughout the book he contrasts the predominant mental controlling attitudes with those of the true shapeshifters . . . such as the shamans of the Amazon and other indigenous peoples. Whilst most of us are brought up to believe in the strength and cleverness of humans, these wise men, elders not just of their respective tribes, but of our species, know that we have no real power. However, they also know that by allowing ourselves to take on other forms (either metaphorically or physically) we can work wonders. This is the essence of shapeshifting.

If I have one criticism of this book it's that, although it includes a few shapeshifting exercises for us to try, there are only a few of these, and they are buried within the text. This is perhaps because the book is written as a story . . . an action packed adventure, no less.

Indeed it is the tale of John's own personal journey from faithless dominator to shapeshifter, include first-hand and true accounts of some stunning occurrences and miraculous healings. In sharing such stories John helps us to see that although mind-boggling in their scope, shapeshifting ways are available to us all: whether we want to win at hide and seek . . . or transform our whole way of doing business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings great insight, 14 Nov. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Shape Shifting: Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation (Paperback)
"Only a handful of visionaries have recognized that indigenous wisdom can aid the transition to a sustainable world. John Perkins' wonderful story of life among the shamans brings great insight for an industrial civilization consuming and polluting itself toward catastrophy." --- Submitted by Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., Apollo 14 astronaut, Founder, Institute of Noetic Sciences

5.0 out of 5 stars A life-changing experience, 4 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Shape Shifting: Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation (Paperback)
John Perkins is a master story teller, and it is impossible to read his book without grieving for values and knowledge our country has sacrificed for greed and environmental devastation. There is more to life, and the Shamans of Ecuador appear to know how to access it. After you read the book, your next desire will be to book a trip to the Amazon with Perkins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Energizing values that support life's diversity and balance., 15 May 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Shape Shifting: Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation (Paperback)
The longer I live, the more I realize the importance of supportive energy in our lives. "Shapeshifting" has inspirered me to examine the value of the way we live our lives in our culture. I recomend this book for anyone who has the instinct to realize that our culture could live a more sustainable life. This book is for people who are ready to stop complaining about the things wrong in our lives, and instead, shapeshift into a positive future.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!, 23 Aug. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Shape Shifting: Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation (Paperback)
A must read. Its time we had a collective shapeshift in our beliefs of Mother Earth. Its time to put aside greed and start renewing the earth and purifing her. If we don't,she will reclaim herself in ways we do not understand. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT READING.
