Quotes from Journey to Ixtlan. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Well, since you can’t be excited after explaining everything you have done, you lie in order to keep going. After years of pursuit, Castaneda decides he is not ready to take this final leap. A lot of authors, religious authorities and messianic “teachers” have enriched themselves by tapping into our need to be part of something bigger, and in the end that’s how Castaneda struck me. I think we all want to believe that ancient primitive cultures have a deep “knowing” that we’ve all forgotten in our “civilized ways,” and tapping into that can be a profound experience.

It is iixtlan this wonderful story that Carlos introduces many concepts, or rather elucidates on many concepts, which Don Juan had intro Many readers of Carlos Castaneda stop reading after A Yaqui Way of Knowledge.


Now that all the controversy is over and the people who pursue that sort of thing have gone on to other interests, it’s possible to sit back and read the don Juan books purely for the enjoyment of their ideas, their unexpected lyricism, their emotional wallop.

Particularly given the primary theme of questioning reality and the “phantoms” that populate it. I also refuse to call this “nonfiction”. This for me is always a good si This is the first in a fiaje of books which Castaneda wrote libgo he realized that his prior emphasis on psychotropic drugs was a misleading and “erroneous” means of conveying the lessons he gained from his apprenticeship with don Juan.

Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda

Moehringer appeared in the Los Angeles Times. I was 16, when I read the book and I loved the way Don Juan perceives the world as so very alive and kind of magical. The don Juan books were runaway best sellers in ljbro 70’s.

The first three books tell the same story, but Ixtlan gets it right and you miss little of importance from the first two books. He went to study and ended up on a series of strange journeys with don Juan Ixtan, a sorcerer or shaman, and the student became his apprentice.

But, the last chapter, the confession of knowing once you make this transformation, there’s no turning back, and one is still human once conquering their “ally” and seeing the other worlds…and one cannot go back to the place they once called home in spite of taking the rest of their life to journey back.

By the end, the apprentice begins to get an idea of what don Juan means by power, and how one can become a warrior in the Yaqui sense. Apr 30, Iona Stewart rated it it was amazing. Castaneda presents the information in great, satisfying detail.

View all 6 comments. Taken as allegory, these books may well have value for many readers. It is looking for Carlos. And, I can see why my friend recommended it to me. The book can be a good passageway to realize that the world is more than our rationalistic eyes are used to conceive.

After the work of “stopping”, his changed perspective leaves him little in common with ordinary people, who now seem no more substantial to him than “phantoms.

You can keep doing everything you do. Aug 18, Mike Bull rated it it was ok. This book moved me.

I also found myself laughing out loud at various times throughout this book. This is an amazing book and part of an amazing series. He learns the gait of ixtla and the tricky art of not-doing.

Phenomenologically, this is certainly the case to many, whether they experience non-ordinary realities through the use of drugs, spiritual exercise or because such things happen to them, either occasionally or regularly.
