A hunter should know the routines of his prey and, most importantly, have no routines oneself. The Teachings of Don Juan 3. I am not sure why I held off reading Castaneda’s works for so long, perhaps I just wasn’t at a place to enjoy them, who knows. The drug bent to me seems just a way to lend his livro some plausibility for the reader until the reader gets far enough along to consider that altered states may indeed be achievable — even unavoidable — when stone cold sober. After the work of “stopping”, his changed perspective leaves him little in common ixtlaan ordinary people, who now seem no more substantial to him than “phantoms.

Either way, this was not anthropology. I was 16, when I read the book and I loved the way Don Juan perceives the world as so very alive and kind of magical. Want to Read saving…. Beyond that, the usual psychedelic experience–and I’ve had scores–at least suggests these other worlds, worlds like those described by Castaneda, although one is not entirely thrust into them and out of this one.


Want to Read Currently Reading Read. If so, some people who want to gain confidence in themselves might find the alternate perspectives in this book thought provoking. But, the last chapter, the confession of knowing once you make this transformation, there’s no turning back, and one is still human once conquering their “ally” and seeing the other worlds…and one cannot go back to the place they once called home in spite of taking the rest of their life to journey back.

That was heartbreaking to me, and, it would seem, heartbreaking to Carlos as well. Yet the book’s faux naif style succeeds in making it just as real as it was before Castaneda’s trickery was discovered. The line-per-line prose writing style of this books is of poor quality. Castaneda died on April 27, in Los Angeles due to complications from hepatocellular cancer. And, I can see why my friend recommended it to me.

This is a tough one ixhlan me! When he realized all the real information that he had discarded which were the core teachings of Don Juan he wrote this book.

Supporters claim the books are either true or at least valuable works of philosophy and descriptions of practices, which enable an increased awareness. Journey to Ixtlan became his UCLA doctoral dissertation, and was the most viqje book of the series because in it Carlos turns away from psychedelic plants and follows Don Juan as his apprentice. But, it’s up to us, the reader, to make it our own, otherwise the voaje is meaningless.


After a while, the ixtlzn appeared to invert and the little pieces of stucco, or whatever, seemed to be holes rather than protuberances. I strongly recommend that you read this mind-expanding book! I looked up at the shelf, and there it was! One can erase personal history by not revealing what one really does, and by leaving everyone who knows one well. To arrive at that being is the not-doing of the self.

Journey to Ixtlan

However…well, there’s a lot of fantastic magic that takes place in front of this eye-witness. This and its follow-up book Tales of Power changed my life when I read them in my mids Books by Carlos Castaneda. The book is well-expressed, though the content is difficult to grasp.

You can keep doing everything you do. An older liro of mine recommended it to me. Decentering is a necessary stepping stone to get to an alternative state, whatever this might be.

It is books like this that I really enjoy finding.

Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda

He weaves the concepts of some modern philosophers into an entertaining tale, filled with ideas to ponder and discuss. A fabulous book in terms of starting one’s journey. This is an amazing book.
