Carlos Castaneda - The Teachings of Don Juan. The friend who had introduced me to don Juan explained later that the old man was not a native of Arizona, where we met, but was a Yaqui Indian from Sonora, Mexico. At first I saw don Juan simply as a rather peculiar man who knew a great deal about peyote and who spoke Spanish remarkably well. But the people with whom he lived believed that he had some sort of "secret knowledge", that he was a "brujo". The Spanish word brujo means, in English, medicine man, curer, witch, sorcerer. It connotes essentially a person who has extraordinary, and usually evil, powers.

The book is divided into two sections As a work of anthropology, The Teachings of Don Juan isn't fit to wipe a monkey's ass. As a novel, it's decent enough, but potentially harmful.

The book is divided into two sections. The first section, The Teachings, is a first-person narrative that documents Castaneda's initial interactions with don Juan. As a work of anthropology, The Teachings of Don Juan isn't fit to wipe a monkey's ass.

Author: Carlos Castaneda The Carlos Castaneda books have floated around colleges for years, and for all I know, still do. A fellow student I can no longer remember pressed the series on me and insisted I read it. I read just enough to think, This is weird, and pass the dog-eared copies o. He attempts to learn the ancient ways of the Yaqui Indian medicine man. In his diary, Castaneda relates his most extraordinary, spiritual, and supernatural encounters with the candid, humorous, lucid, enigmatic, practical, and knowledgeable don Juan, who guides him in his quest to understand what it means to seek the path of a cosmic warrier.

Carlos Castaneda, under the tutelage of Don Juan, takes us through that moment of twilight, through that crack in the universe between .

To reach it he had the aid of mescalito, yerba del cliablo, and humito - peyote, datura, and mushrooms. Don Juan has shown us glimpses of the world of Yaqui sorcerer, and because we see it under the influence of hallucinogenic substances, we apprehend it with a reality that is utterly different from those other sources. This is the special virtue of this work.

It was written by Carlos Castaneda and submitted as his Master's thesis in the school of Anthropology. It purports to document the events that took place during an apprenticeship with a self-proclaimed Yaqui Indian Sorcerer, don Juan Matus from Sonora, Mexico between 1960 and 1965.

To reach it he had the aid of mescalito, yerba del cliablo, and humito - peyote, datura, and mushrooms

This is Castaneda's first book in the "Don Juan" series. He meets Don Juan and is introduced to his magical world and philosophy by means of hallucinogenic plants and special exercises. The author's other books include "The Fire Within" and "The Quest for Ixtlan".

If you're buying the Audible book...beware..it's abridged. I was following along with my physical book and found whole sentences left out on the audio version. I'm very disappointed by this. No where does it tell you on the sight that it's abridged.

I had a great time reading this book. I suggest reading the book with a student's mindset, a student of what is is to exist/experience. Try to see what the book can teach you about your current observations of what you think is reality. Also, take a break after a chapter, be aware of the on-goings in your life, see how they relate to what you have read. Can you find curious co-incidences?

As for the contents of the book: The first part of the book is the extraordinary experiences of Carlos under Don Juan's guidance. The last part is a systematic analysis of Don Juan's teachings by Castaneda. This can readily be applied to further conscious explorations of the infinity of possible realities by purposefully designing your own rituals or habits. Expanding mind and consciousness opens up to the power of co-creating your experience and life to a very high degree and expands what is possible in many new, interesting and magical ways!

I put off reading Castenada for some time because of all the claims he was a con. After reading this I have to say those who argue over the authenticity of Castenada completely and utterly miss the point of his work.

This book started it all. I first read it when it was published in the late sixties. Reading it again 45 years later, I have a much better understanding of both the material, and also of the author.
Many kudos to Mr. Castaneda.

Excellent rendition of a book that at times is an involved read. To hear it and be able to replay passages to redigest concepts and thoughts is a great plus. The voice reader did a great job of intonation and intimating thoughts and actions and observations of Carlos Castenada.

A classic

I would love to reread these Casteneda classics, beginning with this one, but was astounded to learn that it is not available for kindle. Are you kidding? All the others are, but not the first?
This is not just an anthropological treatise on Shamanic lore. The Don Juan series of books offer the inquiring mind a view outside our smartphone universe. And once we start peeking behind the curtain......
