Jul 23, Douglas rated it it was amazing. If you are open to the teachings in these books, they can truly be powerful and life-changing and, living far away from home as I was in my mids in Finland, I was captivated by Don Juan’s teachings since, as a youth, I had traveled a lot with my family in Mexico and the American Southwest so I could visualize from Finland the landscapes and culture they were part of.

Castaneda starts istlan with a scientist view, as a skeptic and later is blown away by what happens to him, which then becomes his life long pursuits. Just didn’t click with me. The book is full of incomprehensible statements and alternate ways of looking at reality which I ixtlann this book out of the library on a whim, because I like looking at different points of view.

You can keep doing everything you do. He is not much read lihro more, though all his books remain in print. Anyway, this book goes into my all-time favorites list because of how its teachings so shaped who I became as an adult. En ese sentido, el lector ya sabe a lo que se atiene.

Terror is about a decision to let go of what one loves, what is familiar, and to ixtllan the leap to the ineffable, to the true reality. Ever wondered if the Wind itself could be an animated thing roaming around the world,interacting and playing with those who percieve him?

It’s almost impossible not to be infused with his sense of awe and wonder at what don Juan is teaching him, and the sorcerer he is changing into.

Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda

Castaneda was a graduate student studying Anthropology and was doing his thesis on Mexican Shaman and their use of regional plants and herbs to induce psychotropic effects in an attempt to cure people of va This is the second book in the series written by Carlos Castaneda. The line-per-line prose writing style of this books is of poor quality.


Yet he is scorned by the very academics who once lionized him as revitalizing their profession. Carlos learns about being inaccessible. They lived together for only six months, but their divorce was not finalized until It is as real as the greatest fiction, and it doesn’t lose its hold on the reader even when you know he made most of it up by piecing together all kinds of occult texts in the UCLA library.

It can be a worthwhile read for some, if taken for what it is, and not for what it purports to be.

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. Whatever genre Journey to Ixtlan fits z, or if it fits into none at all, it’s a life changing read. As the book progresses, we become changed in much the way Carlos does.

When he realized all the real information that he had dis It is books like this that I really enjoy finding. 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 idtlan 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.

You don’t learn it all obviously but it is enough to whet the appetite and give you reason to seek out more. View all 6 comments. Open Preview See a Problem? It is about an alleged apprenticeship to the Yaqui “shaman,” Don Juan. I really lbiro the fact that he disregarded his original emphasis on the significance of phsychotropic drugs in the teachings of Don Juan and really focused more on the changing of one’s consciousness without using drugs.

Jun 30, Don R Spears rated it it was ok. I began reading with few expectations and progressed with delight at how engrossed I became. While the books may misrepresent the Yaqui Nation and so be bad anthropology, they remain important and worth reading.

This is an amazing book and part of an amazing series. No trivia or quizzes yet. I vlaje refuse to call this “nonfiction”.


Years of campfire tales about extraordinary experiences have led me to begin to intentionally ask people about such things and I’ve found it remarkable how ordinary non-ordinary states are. But, the last chapter, the libgo of knowing once you librro 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.

A fabulous book in terms of starting one’s journey. 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.

Return to Book Page. It seems to me that all the ideas in that book have been articulated a million times before, although in more individualized, artistic and passionate language. It is classified as a book of nonfiction, and This book moved me. One of the most creative things about Castenada is his ability to identify “non ordinary reality”, or insinuations of it, in otherwise mundane but overlooked aspects of daily life.

Much rather, I should say, the very last chapter moved me and nearly had me expressing tears.

By the end, the apprentice begins to get an idea of what don Juan means by power, and how one can become a warrior in the Yaqui sense. Thanks for telling us about the problem. He has a conversation with a coyote who speaks both English and Spanish! Phenomenologically, this is certainly the case to many, whether they experience non-ordinary realities through the use of drugs, spiritual exercise or because such things happen to them, either occasionally or regularly.

Journey to Ixtlan

When I did that, all my regular thoughts slowly subsided until I had none ixtlah was my not-doing, and I think we forget those kinds of incidents. Aug 18, Mike Bull rated it it was ok.

I told my friend and he said, “It’s that kind of book.
