1.0 von 5 Sternen Castaneda's books are hoaxes
When I first read this book, I completely swallowed it and became obsessed with the idea of this separate reality and way of knowledge described by Castaneda.
However, a modicum of skeptical thinking marks this and the rest of Castaneda's books as shameless hoaxes. And not very good ones, even... Comparing his different books it's easy to find lots of...

Von Ein Kunde
This book is a must for beginners, who like to use their own intelligence and intuition to discover the absolute truth of the universes. Carlos Castaneda gives a vivid non-judgemental account of his own experiences with Don Juan Matus, which involves the consumption of psychotropic plants that can change the self-perception of reality completely. Although I would never recommend the usage of any of these plants (there are much safer but equally powerful alternatives), it gives a very valuable insight and a glimpse into the realm of multiple realities, which can actually be experienced while dreaming or meditating. 'The Art of Dreaming' throws considerable light on this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Castaneda gets smacked by Don Juan!, 2. Juni 2000
I always love when I find out about a new man of wisdom... To me Don Juan's teachings point to the moon of Zen. Reading about the way of the warrior something arises in you. You become more ready to handle the truth and realize that your journey on this Earth experiencing the fountain of Life is more important than the respect that you sought before.
Don Juan also uses "power plants" to facilitate Castaneda's awareness of the land beyond the mind. It would be foolish to write this off as purely drug use. Our "modern" society aside, these plants of the Earth were often used for spiritual realization. It isn't the end, but can open a door...
This book is best understood in context of the other books in the series which go into greater detail on the essential teaching.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good book, 3. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way Of Knowledge (Taschenbuch)
This is a very good book, although it talks a little too much about Castaneda's use of drugs and not enough on the teachings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intense,Amazing,Fascinating., 8. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way Of Knowledge (Taschenbuch)
Castaneda writes in brilliant & vivid detail his experiences with an Indian sage,guru & sorcerer on the otherworldly realities induced by hallucinogenic intake.He is a talented writer with the skill of depicting scenes that put you there,giving it a realistic feel that transforms the book into one of the landmarks of world literature & human thought.I would describe it as coming close to a "Non-Fiction Novel'.The only question I have on the entire experience is whether these "altered states of thought' had any relevance in magic or were just merely the products of a stoned mind.Closer reading inches to the former.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, 30. Juni 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way Of Knowledge (Taschenbuch)
This is one of the best books I have ever read. Focusing on the Yaqui Native American magick and the journey on the path to become man of knowledge. Unlike books of Scott Cunningham and Raymond Buckland this book unfolds and reveals the knowledge and the teachings of don Juan through a first person narrative. A definite plus.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Modern Myth, 29. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Anyone who's familiar with the process of writing knows that Castaneda fabricated Don Juan. I'm not going to argue that was the reason why Castaneda shunned media since his thesis was based on a fictional and/or composite character named Don Juan. Nevertheless this book provides an important account of ancient trance rituals and drugs that enhance hallucination BUT it totally misses the point that one does not need magic mushrooms to be drunk spiritually. I recommend this book. It is far superior to Celestine Prophecy and most New Age books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This world is just a description guided by dreams..., 11. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Are these going to be your dreams? Yeah but only if you read this book... Learn how to stop the confusion in your mind, induced by the shamans of mass culture. With Castaneda's help you are going to become the shaman of your own life. Highly practical book, and a start of a wonderful journey. If you seek wisdom this book will give you a lot. If you seek something else your mileage may vary...

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent piece, whether fact or fiction., 18. Oktober 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way Of Knowledge (Taschenbuch)
I have read widely on psychology and philosophy and see so many elements of different academics, writers, religious groups etc reflected by Castaneda's writing. His work encourages strengthening of elements of the self including discipline and will. It also gives insight into a culture so unlike ours. His work certainly has the potential to broaden one's mind, as it has mine. Tales of Power should not be missed.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way Of Knowledge (Taschenbuch)
When I first read this book, I completely swallowed it and became obsessed with the idea of this separate reality and way of knowledge described by Castaneda.
However, a modicum of skeptical thinking marks this and the rest of Castaneda's books as shameless hoaxes. And not very good ones, even... Comparing his different books it's easy to find lots of inconsistencies. They, of course, can be rationalized by the true believer by saying that Castaneda's own perception of this reality was evolving, but I'd rather use Occam's Razor and say that they signal a sloppily-constructed hoax by Castaneda. Unfortunately, even a sloppy hoax is enough to fool lots of people and make lots of money.
If you are thinking about buying this book, please do yourself a favor and read Carl Sagan's "The Demon-Haunted World" instead. After that, reconsider.
