Viaje a Ixtlan : Las Lecciones de Don Juan

Anyone looking for answers to life’s little mysteries. It is also important to lose self-importance. But, it’s up to us, the reader, to make it our own, otherwise the value is meaningless. Other books in the series.

Journey to Ixtlan

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. He went to study and ended up on a series of strange journeys with don Juan Matus, a sorcerer or shaman, and the student became his apprentice.

I strongly recommend that kxtlan read this mind-expanding book!

A friend of mine, someone I’ve always admired, recently recommended this book along with several others. The drug bent to me seems just a way to lend his descriptions some plausibility for the reader until the reader gets far enough along to consider that altered states may indeed be achievable — even unavoidable — when stone cold sober.

Although, I was, as I am sure many readers would be, torn as to how much of this story to believe actually happened. In spite of all of viajje, 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 teachings to Carlos. Particularly given the ixtllan theme of viahe reality and the “phantoms” that populate it.

I have read all of Castenedas books and this is the one you should start with.


This book moved me. Believe it or don’t, either way, it is a fantastic read. Either way, this was not anthropology. If you are open to the teachings libr 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.

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. In a way the book seemed to be about a sense of personal power and confidence. Carlos learns about being inaccessible. En ese sentido, el lector ya sabe a lo que se atiene.

It seems to me that all the ideas in that book have been articulated a million times before, ixxtlan in more individualized, artistic and passionate language.

Viaje a Ixtlan : Carlos Castaneda :

Thanks for telling us about the problem. 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.

On the other hand it gave me insight into how some people see alternate realities and how ordinary cause and effect are seen much livro by some people. Yes, I think the teachings are real.

Castaneda starts off with a scientist view, as a skeptic and later is blown away by what happens to him, visje then becomes his life long pursuits. Well, almost 10 years has it been now, since I read this book. It is in this wonderful story that Carlos introduces many concepts, or rather elucidates on many w, which Don Juan had intro Many readers of Carlos Castaneda stop reading after A Yaqui Way of Knowledge. Don Juan is compelling enough, as are the ideas peppered throughout the books, that it doesn’t matter whether he was ever real or not.


Books by Carlos Castaneda. In here you ixtlab get an idea of what it is like to be a sorcerer, hunter and warrior. Taken just as it is, Journey to Ixtlan is a read of many rewards. View all 6 comments. In my opinion I don’t care wether the stories are bogus or true. This is my first book of the Don Juan series of philosophy and shaman ways, but I am told it is the most accessible, which I would agree with so far: Ok, I’m a boomer and I went through my own period of reading and living vijae Carlos Castaneda, his teacher Don Juan, and their world of indigenous Mexican shamanism.

The first three books tell the same story, but Ixtlan gets it right and you miss little of importance from the first two books. He moved to the United States in the early s and became a naturalized citizen in If you are looking for anthropology about Yaqui indians, Toltec shamans, Mexican brujos, etc. This is the second book in the series written by Carlos Castaneda. If so, some people who want to gain confidence in themselves might find the alternate perspectives in this book thought provoking.

They were new wave, new age anthropology, and an often dry academic discipline was given new life by this careful, almost childlike transcription of field notes. As Castaneda wrote more books, they became more fantastic, until even his most ardent supporters had to agree he’d linro the world of anthropology for some sort of science fiction or fantasy.

Just didn’t click with me.
