This is the first book in Carlos Castaneda’s fascinating saga detailing his spiritual journey toward knowledge and enlightenment via the Yaqui sorcerer, Don Juan.
In a series of fascinating dialogues, Castaneda sets forth his partial initiation with don Juan Matus, a Yaqui Indian shaman from the state of Sonora, Mexico. He describes Don Juan’s perception and mastery of the “non-ordinary reality” and how peyote and other plants sacred to the Mexican Indians were used as gateways to the mysteries of “dread,” “clarity,” and “power.”
The Teachings of Don Juan initiated a generation of seekers dissatisfied with the limitations of the Western worldview. Castaneda’s now classic book remains controversial for the alternative way of seeing that it presents and the revolution in cognition it demands. This classic book is a dazzling work of wisdom, mystery and magic, and an intriguing look at the world of alternate reality. Download and start listening now!
