Viaje a Ixtlan : Las Lecciones de Don Juan

Terror is about a decision to let go of what one loves, what is familiar, and to make the leap to the ineffable, to the true reality.

Don Juan was either made up by Castaneda, or he was based on a real person whom Castaneda used as a springboard for fictional tales. 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.


The journey to Ixtlan is not for the weak. The line-per-line prose writing style of this books is of poor quality. Yet the book’s faux naif style succeeds in making it just as real as it was before Castaneda’s trickery was discovered. The Teachings of Don Juan 1 – 10 of 12 books. For example, a heightened sense of awareness brought on by silence, or observation, or exertion, or viewing nature such as sunrise, sunset, thunderstorms or night time in a wilderness setting.

Now that all the controversy is over and the people who pursue that sort of thing have gone on to other interests, it’s possible to sit back and read the don Juan books purely for the enjoyment of their ideas, their unexpected lyricism, their emotional wallop. This is an amazing book and part of an amazing series.

It is looking for Carlos. Quotes from Journey to Ixtlan.

I started back towards the doorway but paused, reluctant to leave. I am not sure why I held off reading Castaneda’s works for so long, perhaps I just wasn’t at a place to enjoy them, who knows.

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. As Castaneda wrote more books, they became more fantastic, until even his most ardent supporters had to agree he’d left the world of anthropology for some sort of science fiction or fantasy.

Terror is to see this world as not real.

After a while, the ceiling appeared to invert and the little pieces of stucco, or whatever, seemed to be holes rather than protuberances. Journey to Ixtlan is presented as though it’s a factual work, when it is a fictional one. I felt and absorbed don Juan’s teachings in a very heavy way. When he realized all the real information that he had dis It is books like this that I really enjoy finding. Castaneda presents the information in great, satisfying detail. 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.


Viaje a Ixtlan : Carlos Castaneda :

When he realized all the real information that he had discarded which were the core teachings of Don Juan he wrote this book. In spite of all of that, I feel as though I picked up a lot from reading it, and I felt as though much of what I go through in my own life has only been confirmed by Don Juan’s vijae to Carlos. These are but a few of the topics that Don Juan teaches Carlos about. A hunter should know the routines of his prey and, most importantly, have no routines oneself.

I remember being a small child. I really appreciated 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. If you are seeking metaphysical understanding, then reject these works as ixttlan truth – but decide for yourself whether they serve you well as allegory and metaphor.

The book is full of incomprehensible statements and alternate ways of looking at reality which I took this book out of the library libfo a whim, because I like looking at different points of view. They demonstrate what a little character development can do as a pedagogical tool for making metaphysics accessible and light. A lot of authors, religious authorities and messianic “teachers” have enriched themselves by tapping into our need xitlan be part of something bigger, and in the end that’s how Castaneda struck me.

If we follow the first, we end up bored to death with ourselves and with the world.

This is an amazing book. Jul 23, Douglas rated it it was amazing.
