Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shapeshifting is a classic shamanic experience, state or practice. It can happen on many levels, though of course we are always most intrigued by the physical shapeshift. John Perkins has studied and written extensively about shapeshifting (http://www.spiritofmaat.com/archive/aug1/johnperkins1.html), and he has practiced it in amazing and deep ways. In essence, he has gone through an incredible personal shapeshift - a transformation from the inside out - in his career and life - moving from a shady economic terrorist (supported by both corporations and governments) to an incredible teacher and shaman of the art of shapeshifting. What we as a global community need the most right now however, is a paradigm shapeshift. John writes about perhaps the seed of this below...

What is our true nature?
We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves, revealing the flower within. Let peace begin with me.
Transformation starts with looking in the mirror at the self. It can be no other way. Simply put, taking responsibility for everything that appears in one's life, is the starting point...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: What is our true nature? Zen teaches us acceptance of all that is. In this acceptance, we allow ourselves to be compassionate for all things. When we feel lost,” our soul has not gone off track. It's more likely that we are totally on course and coming closer than ever to personal transformation. We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves - “As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner” (Rumi) Our true nature is infinity.
