Return to Book Page. On the other hand it gave me insight into how some people see alternate realities and how ordinary cause and effect are seen much differently by some people. Also, these books are not about peyote or other drugs.
This is the first in a series of books which Castaneda wrote after he realized that his prior emphasis on psychotropic drugs was a misleading and “erroneous” means of conveying the lessons he gained from his apprenticeship with don Juan.
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. 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.

Journey to Ixtlan
If you are open to the teachings in 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 Ixtoan and the American Southwest so I could visualize from Finland the landscapes and culture they were part of.

Viaje a Ixtlán: las lecciones de don Juan by Carlos Castaneda
This for me is always a good sign!

Apr 16, Sam Rosenthal rated it really liked it. Academic critics claim the books are works of fiction, citing the books’ internal contradictions, discrepancies between the books and anthropological data, alternate sources for Castaneda’s detailed knowledge of shamanic practices and lack of corroborating evidence.
