To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Forty years on, what are we to think of Carlos Castaneda? This is the Castaneda book that many of my friends say is their favorite. He plays the role of the naive, sometimes dense and blundering student, which makes the book seem artless and laces it with subtle humor.
Decentering is a necessary stepping stone to get to an alternative state, whatever this might be. Also, these books are not about peyote or other drugs.
Castaneda died on April 27, in Los Angeles due to complications from hepatocellular cancer. If you are looking for anthropology about Yaqui indians, Toltec shamans, Mexican brujos, etc. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. The basic teachings of how to view the world.

Your trouble is that you have to explain everything to everybody, compulsively, and at the same time you want to keep the fresh newness of what you do.
Terror is about a decision to let go of what one loves, what is familiar, and to make the leap to the ineffable, to vixje true reality. What baffles me the most is that skeptics-and I was one-fixate on the impossibility of the story without so much as trying any ixtln the prescribed techniques.
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.
I also refuse to call this “nonfiction”.
As the book progresses, we ixltan changed in much the way Carlos castanrda. If you have read them and think they are phony, istlan may want to consider quieting your mind tonight when kxtlan lay down in bed, and try to find your hands in your dreams. If you plan on reading these books, start with the Yaqui Way of Life, which is the first book and be prepared to be engrossed in Don Juan’s teachings.

Beyond that, however, I’ve had a couple of auditions hearing voices which weren’t coming from anyone another in the room would have hearda rather unpleasant hallucinatory episode and at least two induced breakthroughs to domains radically different than this one I’m typing in–all of which felt realer-than-real.
I looked up at the shelf, and there it was! The title of this book is taken from an allegory that is recounted to Castaneda by his “benefactor” who is known to Carlos as Don Genaro Genaro Floresa close friend of his teacher don Juan Matus. I started this giaje inI was 19 years old, out of high school with no direction. 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 ixtan deal about altered s This is the third volume of the trilogy including The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality.
Lists with This Book. If he succeeds in his hunting he becomes a man of knowledge. I remember being a small child. Aug 01, Syl Sabastian rated it it was amazing. Yes, I think the teachings are real.
