    Journey to xtlan The Teachings of Don Juan 3 , Carlos CastanedaJourney to Ixtlan is the third book by Carlos Castaneda, published as a work of non fiction by Simon Schuster in 1972 It is about an alleged apprenticeship to the Yaqui shaman, Don Juan.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 Flores , a close friend of his teacher don Juan Matus Ixtlan turns out to be a metaphorical hometown or Place Position of Being to which the sorcerer or warrior or man of knowledge is drawn to return, trying to get home After the work of stopping , his changed perspective leaves him little in common with ordinary people, who now seem no substantial to him than phantoms The point of the story is that a man of knowledge, or sorcerer, is a changed being, or a Human closer to his true state of Being, and for that reason he can never truly go home to his old lifestyle again 1998 1360 323 1363 460 1366 1371 323 1373 323 9645996026 1375 1380 20 1365 293 1372 1374 1386 441 9789648155433 1973 1 The Teachings of Don Juan A Yaqui Way of Knowledge 1968 1365 2 A Separate Reality Further Conversation with Don Juan 1971 1364 3 Journey to xtlan Lessons of Don Juan ...

    This is the first in a series of books which Castaneda wrote after he realized that his prior emphasis on psychotropic drugs was a misleading and erroneous means of conveying the lessons he gained from his apprenticeship with don Juan.I began reading with few expectations and progressed with delight at how engrossed I became I felt and absorbed don Juan s teachings in a very heavy way I also found myself laughing out loud at various times throughout this book This for me is always a good sign There are many spiritual guide type of books that just don t do it for me The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle is a recent example It seems to me that all the ideas in that book have been articulated a million times before, although in individualized, artistic and passionate language Don Juan encapsulates the entire message of Tolle s book in two sentences because the only thing that is real is the being in you that is going to die To arrive at tha...

    Forty years on, what are we to think of Carlos Castaneda The Don Juan series, of which Journey to Ixtlan is the central volume, were initially acclaimed as a breakthrough in anthropological field research Castaneda, as the researcher, placed himself at the center of his book, writing it from the point of view of his own reactions rather than laying out an ethnography Journey to Ixtlan became his UCLA doctoral dissertation, and was the most noted book of the series because in it Carlos turns away from psychedelic plants and follows Don Juan as his apprentice He plays the role of the naive, sometimes dense and blundering student, which makes the book seem artless and laces it with subtle humor 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 The book takes an almost hypnotic hold on the reader, just as don Juan does on Carlos Carlos cannot break away from don Juan, no matter how irrational, even crazy, he seems, and neither can we As the book progresses, we become changed in much the way Carlos does 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 feels so real, and we get so involved with Carlos struggle to learn a separate reality, that we become in some sense believers in his alternative universe We become part of it The don Juan books wer...

    This is the third volume of the trilogy including The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality I read all three, one after the other, while working at the Chicago Womens Athletic Club during the summer between college and seminary.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 states of consciousness While the books may misrepresent the Yaqui Nation and so be bad anthropology, they remain important and worth reading.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 What is interesting about Castaneda, however, is that, for him, it is not so much a drug disordered state of mind creating hallucinations as an entry into other worlds In other words, the other worlds are real indeed, they are truer in the sense of being meaningful than the quotidian routines of our normal lives.Phenomenologically, this is certainly the case to many, whether they experience non ordinary realities through the use of drugs, spiritual...

    When one does not have a person history, he explained, nothing that one says can be taken for a lie 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 Well, since you can t be excited after explaining everything you have done, you lie in order to keep going From now on, he said, you must simply show people whatever you care to show them, but without ever telling exactly how you ve done it You see, he went on, we only have two alternatives we either take everything for sure and real, or we don t If we follow the first, we end up bored to death with ourselves and with the world If we follow the second and erase personal history, we create a fog around us, a very exciting and mysterious state in which nobody knows where the rabbit will pop out, not even ourselves p34 35 Death is the only wise adviser that we have T...

    Ok, I m a boomer and I went through my own period of reading and living with Carlos Castaneda, his teacher Don Juan, and their world of indigenous Mexican shamanism This and its follow up book Tales of Power changed my life when I read them in my mid 20s they helped me forge a new identity as an adult, as a warrior with an awareness of personal power, and taught me lessons for a lifetime that are still with me 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 mid 20s 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 easily ...

    I have read all of Castenedas books and this is the one you should start with The first three books tell the same story, but Ixtlan gets it right and you miss little of importance from the first two books From Tales of Power on, I give the books five stars To those who say it s fiction, I say so wh...

    Well, almost 10 years has it been now, since I read this book.There have been odd discussions about the truthfulness of of Castanedas books, about Don Juan and the experiences Castaneda describes.In my opinion I don t care wether the stories are bogus or true.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 was 16, when I read the book and I loved the way Don Juan perceives the world as so very alive and kind of magical.The book can be a good passageway to realize that the world is than our rationalistic eyes are used to conceive.Oh yesclearly the book doesn t want to give any answers, but rather it stimulates our imagination on how we perceive ...
