|A YAQUI WAY OF KNOWLEDGEThe teachings of don Juan is the story of a remarkable journey: the first awesome steps on the road to becoming a "man of knowledge" -- the road that continues with A Separate Reality and Journey to Ixtlan."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|

Mesoamerican shamanism interests everyone right? Or was it Mescalito, Mushrooms, and Datura stramonium that brought you here? Whether Castaneda's work is fiction or anthropological fact is debatable. It's entertaining quality is undeniable. The Yaqui shaman named don Juan Matus is an unforgettable character. Whatever your theology, I believe Toltec shamanism (or the synthesis of shamanism) and Castaneda's books contain important and relevant information to today's world. Non-ordinary reality should be investigated, but beware, it is non-ordinary, and not exactly well taken with anthropologists anymore (at one time, they did believe in the authenticity of Castaneda's work). I sum it up to say those interested in the New Age, or Occultism, or even good story, should check Castaneda's series of books out!
This a must read for all who seek enlightenment through the use of natural botanicals.
Carlos spent many years in the field doing his research and tutelage under Don Juan.
