En ese sentido, el lector ya sabe a lo que se atiene. The book is full of incomprehensible statements and alternate ways of looking at reality which are difficult to understand–at least this was my experience.
Viaje a Ixtlan : Carlos Castaneda :
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Castaneda, as the researcher, placed himself at the center of his book, writing it from the point of view of his own reactions rather than laying out an ethnography. If we follow the second and erase personal history, we create a fog around iztlan, a very exciting and mysterious state in which nobody viake where the rabbit will pop out, not even ourselves. I think we all want to believe that ancient primitive cultures have a deep “knowing” that we’ve all forgotten in our “civilized ways,” and tapping into that can be a profound experience.
Preview — Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda. Castaneda died on April 27, in Los Angeles due to complications from hepatocellular cancer. Well, almost 10 years has it been now, since I read this book.
After a while, the ceiling appeared to invert and the little pieces of stucco, or whatever, seemed to be holes rather than protuberances. If we follow the first, we end up bored to death with ourselves and with the world.

Journey to Ixtlan
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. I began reading with few expectations and progressed with delight at how engrossed I became. 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: Terror is to see this world as not real.
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. We are all so very different and unique that nothing is truly the same for any us.
Lists with This Book. Las misteriosas lecciones resultantes son aplicadas de un modo tan poco convencional que provocan la curiosidad inmediata el lector It is in this wonderful story that Carlos introduces many concepts, or rather elucidates on many concepts, which Don Juan had introduced since their initial encounter; not-doing, stopping the world, living as a warrior, and dreaming.
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. Don Juan was either made up by Castaneda, or he was based on a real person whom Castaneda used as a libgo for fictional tales. I myself have experienced “other worlds” on a number of occasions.
So if you are only planning on reading one, pick this one. But, it’s up to us, the reader, to make it our own, viaie the value is meaningless.
Jul 05, Eric rated it it was amazing. That was heartbreaking to me, and, it would seem, heartbreaking to Carlos as well.
Viaje a Ixtlan : Las Lecciones de Don Juan
There is only time for decisions. Ok, I’m a boomer and I went through my own period of reading and living with Carlos Castaneda, his teacher Don Juan, and their world of indigenous Mexican shamanism. 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.
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. Ever wondered if the Wind itself could be an animated thing roaming around the world,interacting viajf playing with those who percieve him? I think we all want to believe that ancient primitive cultures have a deep “knowing” that we’ve all forgotten in our “civilized ways,” and tapping into that can be a pro I wanted to like this book and expected to 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 viwje a month.
Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda
It’s hard to set all istlan aside while reading Journey to Ixtlan. 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 Q Genaro Floresa close friend of his teacher don Juan Matus. A fabulous book in terms of starting one’s journey. This is the third book in the series but if you want to know the truth it is the first book that should be read.
It is looking for Carlos. If you are seeking metaphysical understanding, then reject these works as literal truth ixtan but decide for yourself whether they serve you well as allegory and metaphor. Jun 30, Don R Spears rated it it was ok. When I did that, all my regular thoughts slowly subsided until I had none whatsoever…that was my not-doing, and I think we forget those kinds of incidents.
