About this title

Synopsis:

Thirty years ago the University of California Press published an unusual manuscript by an anthropology student named Carlos Castaneda. 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.

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 along with other plants sacred to the Mexican Indians were used as gateways to the mysteries of "dread," "clarity," and "power." The Teachings of Don Juan is the story of a remarkable journey that has left an indelible impression on the life of more than a million readers around the world.

"For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel, looking, looking breathlessly."—Don Juan

"Carlos Castaneda, under the tutelage of don Juan, takes us through the moment of twilight, through the crack in the universe between daylight and dark into a world not merely other than our own, but of an entirely different order of reality."—Walter Goldschmidt, from the Foreword

From the Publisher:

In addition to the publication of Magical Passes, 1998 marks the momentous occasion of another event in the works of Carlos Castaneda: the publication of a 30th anniversary edition of The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge. This special edition includes a new introduction by Carlos Castaneda, which provides a rare glimpse into the author's own view of experiences that encompass the total teachings of the shamans of ancient Mexico. What began thirty years ago with The Teachings of Don Juan has ceaselessly captivated readers worldwide, and this introduction will quite possibly offer the single most important overview of Carlos Castaneda's work.
