Carlos rips apart the veil between this reality and the world of magic. Some writers thought this must necessarily mark the end of his series. In Castaneda's first two books he describes that the Yaqui way of knowledge also required the heavy use of powerful psychoactive or entheogenic plants, such as peyote and datura. That proof hinges on the credibility of Don Juan as a being and Carlos Castaneda as a witness.

However, Spicer noted that the events described in the book were not consistent with other ethnographic accounts of Yaqui cultural practices, concluding it was unlikely that Don Juan had ever participated in Yaqui group life. These are the factors which are responsible for happier and sad moments in our life. Carlos died just as he lived: surrounded by mystery and enigma. This book is his account from one trip to another with bits of hippy-wisdom thrown in, like the oft-quoted "ask yourself if this path has a heart" passage.

And it did. Read what the skeptics say if you wish but don't be stopped by them. Castaneda claimed to have met a Yaqui shaman named Don Juan Matus in Beginning inRichard de Mille published a series of criticisms that uncovered inconsistencies in Castaneda's field notes, as well as several instances of apparent plagiarism. Up to that point the course of my apprenticeship seemed to have been a continuous building toward the collapse of that certainty. Yoda and Luke Skywalker were inspired in part by don Juan and Castaneda.

The Teachings of Don Juan book

Beginning inRichard de Mille published a series of criticisms that uncovered inconsistencies in Castaneda's field notes, as well as several instances of apparent plagiarism. Carlos Castaneda continued to chronicle his supposed tutelage under Don Juan, with each new book exposing new aspects of his training.

All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. Here is Carlos's own words, the last words of Appendix A. That alone should be enough to prove that this book can transcend its controversy and questions of its authenticity to become an educational tool for the seeking.

And to add to that point: There is nothing to do, per se, that is offensive in following the teachings Carlos Castaneda presents, but rather ALL to be gained. Then you need to read the Coffeehouse Mysteries. If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use.

The Teachings Of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way Of Knowledge (1983)

There is a number of things that matter is our life and which make our life beautiful. Carlos is learning to become a warrior.

A strong case can be made that the Don Juan books are of a different order of truthfulness from Castaneda's pre-Don Juan past. I then printed and proofread it about, literally, 18 times to get it right.

In reading the words of Castenada it is certainly important to decide why one is reading these books. He was the subject of a cover article in the March 5, issue of Time which described him as "an enigma wrapped in a mystery wrapped in a tortilla". This question is one that only a very old man asks.

And be willing to think about the questions and ideas in an abstract way. As an example, this passage from Tales of Power where Carlos Castaneda had told don Juan of his having taken his cats to be put to sleep and of how one of them, Max, had apparently sensed that all was not well and jumped out of the car and ran away when he had the chance.

These practices are devised to maximise the Warrior's personal power, or energy. He helped millions of people to regain control of their life and he died mysteriously in New York City.

He also used the term "nagual" to signify that which is unknowable, neither known nor knowable; implying that, for his party of seers, don Juan was a connection in some way to that unknowable.

I was deep into graduate school by then, attempting to earn my MFA while not losing my mind. This enemy is the cruelest of all, the one he won't be able to defeat completely, but only fight away.

Don shows people how to control the negative emotions of their life and live a positive life. The skeptics of Castaneda soon came along with one of them becoming quite well known for his book purportedly exposing him as a fraud I don't think the author quite put it so bluntly but he might as well have if he actually didn't.

Fans of Carlos will tell you to forget about all the controversies surrounding this book. In his book Wolf details how his life had been transformed by his association with Castaneda.
