Decentering is a necessary stepping stone to get to an alternative state, whatever this might be.

In his later years, Carlos Castaneda became the leader of his own cult, something of a Jim Jones figure, a man who apparently induced several women to kill themselves just after Carlos himself died. Carlos learns about being inaccessible. Don Juan was either made up by Castaneda, or he was based on a real person whom Castaneda used as a springboard for fictional tales. The drug bent to me seems just a way to lend his descriptions 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.

Refresh and try again. I think we all want to believe that ancient primitive cultures have a deep “knowing” that we’ve all forgotten in our “civilized ways,” and tapping into that can be a pro I wanted to like this book and expected to get a lot out of it as my first read by Castaneda, but I found I had to force myself to read it in fits and starts and it took me the better part of a month.


Return to Book Page. If the book, indeed all his books, are read from the perspective of evaluating the wisdom value, which is independent of whether the origins are fictional or actual, then much is gained.

Apologies to all the Castaneda fans out there but for my money if you’re into this type of reading I think Paulo Coelho is better. It is in this wonderful story that Carlos introduces many concepts, or rather elucidates on many concepts, which Don Juan had introduced since their initial encounter; not-doing, stopping the world, living as a warrior, and dreaming.

Aug 27, Blaine rated it it was amazing Shelves: After the work of “stopping”, his changed perspective leaves him little in common with ordinary people, who now seem no more substantial to him than “phantoms.

So Castaneda and don Juan were discredited, and the man who had sold a total of something like 28 million books faded away. As the book progresses, we become changed in much the way Carlos does. Although it appears to be the case that Castaneda, the author, fabricated some of the material appearing in his accounts, including that of his doctoral dissertation which begins the series, it also appears to be the case that he knows a good deal about altered s This is the third volume of the trilogy including The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality.

If you are seeking metaphysical understanding, then reject these works as literal truth – but decide for yourself whether they serve you well as allegory and metaphor.

In later books, Juan describes that there are only so many kinds of men, and that Genaro is a man of action. This is an amazing book and part of an amazing series.

Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda

The first three books tell the same story, but Ixtlan gets it right and you miss little of importance from the first two books. Well, almost 10 years has it been now, since I read this book.

I myself have castzneda “other worlds” on a number of occasions. Moehringer appeared in the Los Angeles Times. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I started back towards the doorway but paused, reluctant to leave. Ixtlan is a hard-to-describe mystical or maybe viaaje magical state obtained only by a few.

Castaneda describes his journey as an average guy through different spiritual rituals and experiences, as he is taught by Don Juan about the shamanistic view of life. I’ve classed this volume as psychology [one could also, legitimately, class them as religion or as fiction] because so much of its content has to do with what we conventionally call “altered states” and relegate to psychologists.
