Building Your Perception Bridge

Monday, February 13       2:00 pm - 4:30 pm       Room: Century D


Perceiving New Personal/Global Realities


We have entered history’s greatest revolution: the Consciousness Revolution. Across the planet people are waking up: we must change the way we perceive our relationship to ourselves and the world. Quantum physics, chaos theory, modern psychology, and John’s experiences as economic hitman – teach that consciousness and perception govern human behavior. In this workshop John will discuss how ‘mindfulness’ combines with science, psychology, and shamanism to alter perceptions. You will learn about the power of the Consciousness Revolution to transform objective reality and you will be guided through a shapeshifting journey that brings inner peace and empowers your personal connection with global transformation.


Building Your Perception Bridge


Human activity is determined by the ways perceptions impact physical reality – both consciously and unconsciously. We have entered a time when we know we must change, as individuals and societies. The Perception Bridge is a tool that provides the ability to move from one objective reality to another by changing perceived reality. John has applied and taught it to facilitate major changes – in individuals, institutions, corporations, and nations. During this experiential seminar, you will explore the new realities you wish for your life and the world, how to build your own Perception Bridge, and apply it in your daily activities.
