Touching the Jaguar
Changing Reality by

Changing Perception


When aliens arrive,

how will they deal with our planet and us?

They’ll certainly be impressed by Earth’s beauty and abundant resources, and dismayed by the destructive actions of its people. They’ll be shocked by the brutal ways we treat each other and our planetary home. They may well decide that if we continue to kill and destroy, they’ll have no choice but to save the planet by eradicating us.


Journey to Other Worlds


Following up on his Keynote Workshop, John will prepare you to experience the type of UFO journey he took while studying with a shaman in the Amazon rain forest. You will delve deep into the power of the Perception Bridge that transports us as individuals and societies from one Reality into another one. John will guide you on your own life-changing journey. Like his UFO experience, it will open you to your powers to alter reality – yours and the world’s.


                                                What can we do to prepare?

This is not a frivolous, science fiction question. How to prepare for the aliens is the big question of our time, because they are about to arrive.They are coming from the high-tech labs of Google, Amazon, and lots of new start-ups. Scientists in those labs tell us that AI (“artificial intelligence”- robots, aliens), soon will become more intelligent than human beings, probably within the next two decades.

These higher forms of intelligence  will surely recognize that we humans are behaving irresponsibly, that we must change our ways, or else. . .

What can we do to prepare?
The people of the Amazon rain forests know the answer. Touch the jaguar.
