About the Author

Shakaim Mariano Ijisam Chumpi, married and the father of four children, lives in the heart of the Amazon, following the traditional ways of the Shuar. John Perkins, who first lived among the Shuar as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1968, lectures at universities and teaches workshops around the world as one of the founding members of Dream Change Coalition. His previous books include Shapeshifting, The World Is As You Dream It, and Psychonavigation.


"John Perkins has carried us effortlessly into a new encounter with an ancient world view. In the Shuar account the wisdom of the Amazonian rain forest prevails, where the spirit life teems as mercilessly and exquisitely as the biology. Spirit of the Shuar is filled with the poetry of authentic vision. It speaks the elemental language of the spirit-mind that journeys through all the levels of existence." * Stephen Larsen, author of Fire in the Mind *
"This book contains profound wisdom. In our modern age we lack the deep knowing of how to positively transform our culture. The Shuar give hope and direction that will benefit our children's children. Best of all, you'll love reading Spirit of the Shuar." * Stephan Rechtschaffen, M.D. CEO, Omega Institute for Holistic Studies and author of Timeshifting *
"We have much to learn from the Shuar; reading this book could change your world." * Susan Dobra, Magical Blend, Winter 2002 *
"After you have read it, you will know why Spirit of the Shuar has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. The tales contained within Spirit of the Shuar are told in a direct and elegantly simple style. The pages come alive as the reader is given a glimpse into what it might feel like to live among the Shuar." * June Rouse, The Monthly Aspectarian, December 2001 *
"Anyone interested in indigenous wisdom, different ways of living, or shapeshifting will definitely be fascinated by this excellent book by John Perkins and Shuar shapeshifter Chumpi. Spirit of the Shuar is a masterpiece that lives on in one's heart for a lifetime." * Cynthia Larson, RealityShifters News, September 2001 *
"The pages come alive a the reader is given a glimpse into what it might feel like to live among the Shuar." * Arthur E. Roffey, Parabola, November 2002 *
