    1. You may find this book has a lot of chaff on how they prepare peyote and other drugs, mundane descriptions in diary yet when you less expect it, they hit you with a boulder of wisdom that leaves you freezed.There is ONE core idea in the book that makes the price tag disappear You cannot pay for it It goes like this Anything is one of a million paths Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditio [...]


    2. I found this book in my friend s house in Spring Lake, New Jersey about 20 years ago Flipped through it, started reading, and couldn t put it down Since then I ve read all of Carlos Casteneda s books, but this is by far the best Sadly, the power of this work is often diminished by readers who mistakenly, and obtusely, attribute his experiences solely to tripping through the use of psychotropic plants in Mexico That s a book about tripping, people have told me But no, it really has nothing to do [...]

    4. I am going to give the same review to all the Carlos Castaneda books I read in that series, simply because they are all outstanding I was lucky to come across Castaneda very early on my magickal path My spells and rituals have always relied on the power of intent, and I have found no better education on how to focus your intent than in this series of books Back then 1994 they were classifed as nonfiction Lately, they say they are fiction All I know is much of what is in these books works And hav [...]


    5. Amazing Essential reading for any deep thinker and open minded person who has experienced non ordinary realities This book spoke to my soul I have had out of body experiences and know firsthand that our physical reality is not the only one I have personally experienced some of what is described here and not from ingesting peyote, but from spontaneous OOBEs I don t know why I did not read this sooner as I ve heard of Castaneda well before now It s comforting to have your personal experiences veri [...]


    6. The Best Advice that anyone has ever given me is all in this book This book is my spiritual guidance A warrior acknowledges his pain but he doesn t indulge in it The mood of the warrior who enters into the unknown is not one of sadness on the contrary, he s joyful because he feels humbled by his great fortune, confident that his spirit is impeccable, and above all, fully aware of his efficiency A warrior s joyfulness comes from having accepted his fate, and from having truthfully assessed what l [...]


    7. A young anthropologist goes into the desert, meets an old shaman and does a bunch of peyote, DMT salvia, and shrooms This book is his account from one trip to another with bits of hippy wisdom thrown in, like the oft quoted ask yourself if this path has a heart passage Beyond the tripping, the author doesn t seem to understand the spiritual aspects of what Don Juan is trying to tell him Like when he smoked the little smoke and thought himself to become a bird, he asks Don Juan afterwards did I r [...]


    8. Back in the 70 s, Carlos Castaneda a young anthropologist from the University of California was the shit amongst hippies, new agers and wanna be cool academics desperate to shed their stuffy tweed Now Not so much For many readers, Castaneda s death knell sounded when most of his accounts turned out to be factually speaking complete and utter BS To which diehard Castanites objected But, like, what is truth anyways, man I don t wish to get terribly enmeshed in the debate But to my logical, unenlig [...]


    9. The discussions on whether this book is fiction or non fiction are rather futile, and prevent the reader from engaging with it closely I think a smarter move would be to suspend judgment on the matter, and look into what one can learn from this account The Teachings of Don Juan may be read as a bildungsroman where the narrator anthropologist Carlos Castaneda engages with an alternative reality, under the strict guidance of Don Juan, on the path to becoming a man of knowledge As a means to becom [...]


    10. This obscure writer has a huge cult following who believe that Castaneda s semi fictious stories about Don Juan and the indigenous peoples of Mexico hold the keys to power and enlightenment Ninja is a skeptic She doesn t believe in any of that rot but they are best books being peddled as non fiction that I have ever read.Years ago, I caught an edition of Imprint on our local public television station TVO The host, Daniel Richler, was leading a panel discussion about native spirituality and its l [...]



    11. Every Seeker has at some point experienced an unexplainable moment These are great opportunities to expand your perceptions to begin to believe in something greater then yourself that cannot be explained by your culture, current beliefs or family Any of Carlos Castanada s books will give you the opportunity to discover another perspective about what reality really is For those who call themselves Seekers looking for the meaning of life this is a foundational book This was the first book I read t [...]



    12. Svakako da bi mi ova knjiga mnogo vi e legla da sam dvadesetak godina mla i i siguran sam da bih prona ao mnogo vi e paragrafa vrednih da zastanem i pro itam ih ponovo.Kao, na primer, ovaj No I m never angry at anybody No human being can do anything important enough for that You get angry at people when you feel that their acts are important I don t feel that way any longer Poslednja tre ina je suvoparna strukturolo ka analiza koja ubija svu ar itanja i magiju celokupnog opisanog do ivljaja, tak [...]



    13. This may be the first book that truly exposed me to psychedelic literature I have just completed it for my third time, and it was just as fresh as the times I read it during college.Carlos Castaneda was an American author who wrote a series of books about his experiences with traditional Mesoamerican Shamanism The books that follow The Teachings of Don Juan A Yaqui Way of Knowledge are also excellent, and I plan on re reading the series and reviewing it This book is written in first person by Ca [...]


    14. For anyone who has the vaguest interest in shamanism, this is an essential text It is Carlos Casteneda s seminal work and in my opinion is a work of art He has a very direct personal way of revealing his story, about an encounter with an ageing Native American man of knowledge, who takes Carlos under his wing and reveals to him some of the secrets of shamanism The range of psychedelics encountered are followed up in the book, after consumption, with vivid detail of the accompanying experiences F [...]


    15. I m just going to be honest here I did not like this book It was a struggle for me There were a few quotes that I liked, but they were few far between Since taking a class in college, I ve been interested in learning about Native American spirituality This book just wasn t what I was expecting The first section containing the teachings dialogue of Don Juan was interesting But the descriptions of non ordinary reality were oftentimes so bizarre that they sounded fake to me Granted, I ve never used [...]



    16. Whoa This one was a real trip and half UCLA grad student in botany goes down to southern Arizona to learn about plants in the 1960s Winds up studying under the tutelage of a local Yaqui shaman and explores the nether regions of human perception, induced through a variety of power plants as well as peyote its own special deity The is the first of a whole series of books and a large following that were largely inspired by the author, Carlos Castaneda I haven t read the others, but I like to think [...]


    17. Carlos Castaneda s series about Yaqui religion is a mixture of fact and fiction According to the article about him, the first three of the dozen or so volumes he produced constitute the academic work leading to his doctorate in anthropology However, only this volume, the first, has an academic tone Subsequent volumes are literary.Although Castaneda is rightly criticized for misrepresenting his work to the UCLA faculty of anthropology, the first three books still bear reading for his compelling [...]


    18. I was reminded of this book by a recent article, and I realized I had never read it when it first came out I was curious to see what the fuss was about I must say I was sorely disappointed the book is clumsily written and very sparing with its insights Not recommended for enlightenment or even a good read.




    19. I liked the first half of the book, but then it just seemed to be of the same, so I stopped about 3 4 of the way through Maybe I m just impatient, or maybe the story was going nowhere I understand why don Juan was annoyed with the narrator, he got on my nerves at times, too.There were good parts, though, I liked where they were out in the desert ingesting peyote, and he wandered off talking to the embodiment of peyote, or Mescalito , who told him to eat some , but he didn t have a knife, so he [...]


    20. This book was recommended to me a few years ago by a professor of mine I was deep into graduate school by then, attempting to earn my MFA while not losing my mind My work as well and my mental state were suffering.My professor told me I needed to learn how to see And this book would show me how.And it did It helped tremendously I did not approach the book as an anthropologist Nor did I approach it as a study of any kind I had no prior knowledge of Castaneda or any of the controversy his books ca [...]


    21. This book did to promote the youth of the sixties to try mescaline than any other social influence That was not Casteneda s purpose in writing the book It is an intriguing sociological study of the Yaqui society, and Casteneda s relationship with Don Juan There is a lot of advice for living in this book It is also a very good read.


    22. There are no right wrong easy difficult paths , only paths to follow All paths are the same , they may lead to somewhere or to nowhere your heart tells it all A man of knowledge finds knowledge by following his heart



    23. I recently attended a short course 8 hours at UCSD Extension entitled Principles of Clarity It could also have been called Mindfulness if that term is useful to you in envisioning the nature of the course Forewarning, this is the longest review I have ever written One of the readings recommended by Karen Dobkins the professor at UCSD instructing the course was The Teachings of Don Juan A Yaqui Way of Knowledge Her intent was to help us comprehend that there were ways of viewing the world than [...]
