This is the real world, not our lives that our filled with ego and control. Yet the book’s faux oxtlan style succeeds in making it just as real as it was before Castaneda’s trickery was discovered. The don Juan books were runaway best sellers in the 70’s.

A fabulous book in terms of starting one’s journey. Viaue 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.

Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda

In a sense, Castaneda is a throwback to the 18’th century, when there was a convention of presenting fiction as though it were factual travel writing; think of Swift and Defoe. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest you skip the first two books and begin the series with this one.

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. 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.

Anyone looking for answers to life’s little mysteries. Also, these books are not about peyote or other drugs. Nonetheless, there’s a lot of charm to Journey, in terms of what he writes about. Of course, like everyone, I inhabit them nightly and remember them under the rubric of dreaming.

Ixtln is a necessary stepping stone to get to an alternative state, whatever this might be. 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, either occasionally or regularly. His antics and personality are so like myself that I cannot help but love the character. Just didn’t click with me. 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.


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

Lists with This Book.

The wind can follow one, make one tired or even kill one. This book is published as fact, but many people believe it’s fiction.

Although, I was, as I am sure many readers would be, torn as to how much of this story to believe actually happened. This is the Castaneda book that many of my friends say is their favorite. Aug 01, Syl Sabastian rated it it was amazing. Carlos tells Don Juan that they are equals, while in actual fact he feels that as a sophisticated university student he is superior to him, who is an Indian.

It can be a worthwhile read for some, if taken for what it is, and not for what it purports to be. Castaneda presents the information in great, satisfying detail. In my opinion I don’t care wether the stories are bogus or true. I would read with a red pen, underlining what was of value, and could be applied, copying out those underlinings into large notebooks.

They demonstrate what a little character development can do as a pedagogical tool for making metaphysics accessible and light. Nov 16, Joseph Pfeffer rated it it was amazing. 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. Years of campfire tales about extraordinary experiences have led me to begin to intentionally ask people about such things and I’ve found it remarkable how ordinary non-ordinary states are.

There was no public service, Castaneda was cremated and the ashes were sent to Mexico.

Supporters claim the books are either true or at least valuable works of philosophy and descriptions of practices, which enable an increased awareness. There are many spiritual guide type of books that just don’t do it for me. 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.

Although it appears viajr 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 s This is the third volume of the liibro including The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality.
