Présentation de l'éditeur

Originally drawn to Yaqui Indian spiritual leader don Juan Matus for his knowledge of psychotropic plants, bestselling author Carlos Castaneda immersed himself in the sorcerer’s magical world. Ten years after his first encounter with the shaman, Castaneda examines his field notes and comes to understand what don Juan knew all along—psychotropic plants are merely a means to understanding alternative realities that one cannot fully embrace on one’s own. Journey to Ixtlan introduces these clear new ideas—omitted from Castaneda’s classic volumes The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality—to the reader for the first time. Castaneda explores, as he comes to experience it himself, his own final voyage into the teachings of don Juan, and shares with us what it is like to truly "stop the world" and perceive reality on his own terms.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 To feel joy, awe and sorrow simultaneously, is to read this book with intention. 10 mars 2015
Par Karl Weaver - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
It's been a long time since I first read this book. Recently I found myself feeling forced to download it to Kindle just so I could read a quote at a conference (not having the physical copy with me).

Yes, Castaneda wrote a lot of books. Yes, most of them are very interesting. Yes, it would be wise to start with his first, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge, and work forward to Journey to Ixtlan. Yes, Journey to Ixtlan is probably the single most powerfully moving of all his books--though most of them have beautiful and memorable passages in them.

You can skip the second half of the first book--the part where he tries to put what he says was Don Juan's teachings into anthropological mumbo-jumbo hoping he could (so he said anyhow) submit it for university credit. Ignore that part of book one completely.

You can also completely skip (in my own opinion) the book about using various physical poses.

Certain questions have gone unanswered, specifically: how much of what Castaneda wrote, did he believe himself, as opposed to creating a work of fiction and presenting it as actual experiences? I've seen some compelling arguments to suggest that at least some pieces are a deliberate fiction (like a passage about hiking all day in the heat of a Southwest summer day, without ever mentioning phenomenal water requirements or the possibility of death by heat stroke). There are other things suggesting he really believed at least a part of the experiences he describes (whether or not you the reader would literally believe them is an altogether separate issue). For example, the clumsy attempt to anthropology-study the experience, in book one, never repeated again after that, seemed legitimately like someone changing from the role of "university student" or at least "part-time student", to at least a part time APPRENTICE to this man he calls Don Juan. The book all about use of certain postures, much like a martial arts or a meditation book, also seems very matter-of-fact like, WHY BOTHER, unless someone actually instructed him in those things and he came to believe himself that they had some importance....

Perhaps what's most fascinating of all is that even though Castaneda seems to have been raised with a largely Westernized world view, the world-view which he presents as the teachings of his two mentors, Don Juan and Don Genaro (pseudonyms no doubt even if the individuals were real), is so COMPLETELY NON-WESTERN, it's quite an act for one writer to imagine the entire thing alone. And yet, despite being a world view unique from other cultures, he portrays some profound and universal truths about the nature of living, and of a life well-lived as opposed to a life stumbled through, that I think virtually anyone who reads this seriously will be deeply moved. Read it, and be moved. Let it change your attitude toward life.

Regardless of the controversies surrounding Castaneda, he writes far, far better than his critics, and he delivers the most penetrating analyses of the cognitive experience of the shamans.

I take a long time to make up my mind about books and authors of books on esoteric subjects. Honestly, I still am not confident about whether or not I should trust this one. The book was fascinating and that's why I've given it five stars. But as a source of practical information on esoteric practice, I'm going to need more time before I decide what to make of this one.

As an introduction to the story of Carlos Casteneda's initiation, this book may be a good place to start, because the events in it take place earlier in time than the events in the author's other books. But the author's understanding of his subject develops over time and therefore the reader will sense that the author does not completely understand the experiences he describes in this book or perhaps that he had not fully digested them at the time of its writing. In later books such as Fire from Within, the author has gone much farther into the world of the Toltec Seers and is able to explain his experiences with more clarity.

I was confused by some things in this book. For example, the author's teacher tells him that he is a sorcerer. However the teaching and experiences he describes do not correspond to my own impressions of sorcery in the sense that the characters in this story seem to be working toward a positive and constructive integration of the consciousness. In Fire from Within, which chronicles a much later part of the story, the teacher Don Juan explains that he felt it was best to present himself to Carlos as a sorcerer at the beginning of his training but that he and his compatriots actually call themselves "seers". This is a fascinating story but I recommend that those who would take it seriously should read it in context of the author's other works.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fact or fiction? 17 avril 2013

No matter. Castaneda is a master author and his story holds true to Southwestern U.S./Northern Mexico Natives beliefs. I've read the series and this particular book several times. I recommend those new to the series start with this book (the 3rd), then read the 1st and 2nd books. Then this one again before Tales of Power. The reader is cautioned to not turn Castaneda or Don Juan into some kind of heroes. They are witches. They are apart from the average Native person. And while brujos are not evil per se, they certainly can be, and Natives historically sometimes had to "return them to the Earth" if they became too dangerous. Anyway, this is an excellent read and a magical, mystical journey!

I have read pieces and pieces a hundred times. For me, It is just like seeing a student's joys and predicaments under a great Taoist, Zen or another esoteric and/or mystical master. If you take out the time, place and names of the protagonists, that is the essence. When we are ready, the master appears... and we never go back to what we were. Just like a pie from a circle: the larger the circle, the larger the pie. When the song "Beauty And The Beast" came out, I just paired it with this book.
