Product Description

Teachings Of Don Juan Book

By Carlos Castaneda

Thirty years ago the University of California Press published a remarkable manuscript by an anthropology student named Carlos Castaneda.

"The Teachings of Don Juan" initiated a generation of seekers dissatisfied with the limitations of the Western worldview.

Castaneda's now classic book remains controversial for the alternative way of seeing that it presents and the revolution in cognition it demands.

In a series of fascinating dialogues, Castaneda sets forth his partial initiation with don Juan Matus, a Yaqui Indian shaman from the state of Sonora, Mexico.

He describes Don Juan's perception and mastery of the "non-ordinary reality" and how peyote and other plants sacred to the Mexican Indians were used as gateways to the mysteries of "dread", "clarity", and "power".  It is a Yaqui way of knowledge.

The teachings of Don Juan is the story of a remarkable journey:  the first awesome steps on the road to becoming a "man of knowledge"; the road that continues with A Separate Reality and Journey to Ixtlan.

"For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length.  And there I travel, looking, looking, breathlessly." Don Juan
