Daniel Perez marked it as to-read Dec 12, Quotes from Journey to Ixtlan. Castaneda starts off with a scientist view, as a skeptic and later is blown away by what happens to him, which then becomes his life long pursuits.
Journey to Ixtlan became his UCLA doctoral dissertation, and was the most noted book of the series because in it Carlos turns a Forty years on, what vizje we to think of Carlos Castaneda? After years of pursuit, Castaneda decides he is not ready to take this final leap. The previous two were more concerned with hallucinogenic plants and his experiences with them which he thought was the right track for him to write on.
One of the most creative things about Castenada is his ability to identify “non acstaneda reality”, or insinuations of it, in otherwise mundane but overlooked aspects of daily life. Either way, this was not anthropology. The don Juan books were runaway best sellers in the 70’s. I also refuse to call this “nonfiction”.
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 viajee been confirmed by Don Juan’s teachings to Carlos.

But, it’s up to us, the reader, to make it our own, otherwise the value is meaningless. This is a tough one for me! If you are looking for anthropology about Yaqui indians, Toltec shamans, Mexican brujos, etc. To those who say it’s fiction, I say so what? Jul 01, Lauren rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Sandra marked it as to-read Dec 25, It is classified as a book of nonfiction, and it is written as a first person account as to what Carlos says he experienced.
This is the Castaneda book that many of my friends say is their favorite. If we follow the first, we end up bored to death with ourselves and with the world. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
One way to read this is as a Tao-like tome — to stop trying to control the world and to fit in as one among the many. This author wrote other similar books; for me however, one was enough. If he succeeds in his hunting he becomes a man of knowledge.
Apr 16, Sam Rosenthal rated it really liked it. This book moved me. He weaves the concepts of some modern philosophers into an entertaining tale, filled with ideas to ponder and discuss. Starting with The Teachings of Don Juan inCastaneda wrote a series of books that describe his purported training in traditional Mesoamerican shamanism. In other words, the other worlds are real–indeed, they are truer in the sense of being more meaningful than the quotidian routines of our normal lives.
I strongly recommend that you read this mind-expanding book! I began reading with few expectations and progressed with delight at how engrossed I became.
Viaje a Ixtlan : Carlos Castaneda :
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. After the work of “stopping”, his changed perspective leaves him little in common with ordinary people, who now seem no more substantial to him than “phantoms.

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, casaneda occasionally or regularly.

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 Floresa close friend of his teacher don Juan Matus. Once the real world is accessed, one cannot go home again. We are all so very different and unique that nothing is truly the same for any us. 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.
Much rather, I should say, the very last chapter moved me and nearly had me expressing tears. I wanted to like this book and expected fastaneda 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. The book is full of incomprehensible statements and alternate ways of looking at reality which I took this book out of the library on a whim, because I like looking at different points of view.
If you have read them and think they are phony, you may want to consider quieting your mind tonight when you lay down in bed, and try to find your hands in your dreams.
The book can be a good passageway to realize that the world is more than our rationalistic eyes are used to conceive.
