In Journey to Ixtlan, Carlos Castaneda introduces readers to this new approach for the first time and explores, as he comes to experience it himself, his own final voyage into the teachings of don Juan, sharing with us what it is like to truly “stop the world” and perceive reality on his own terms.

Originally drawn to Yaqui Indian spiritual leader don Juan Matus for his knowledge of mind-altering plants, bestselling author Carlos Castaneda immersed himself in the sorcerer’s magical world entirely. Ten years after his first encounter with the shaman, Castaneda examines his field notes and comes to understand what don Juan knew all along—that these plants are merely a means to understanding the alternative realities that one cannot fully embrace on one’s own.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power food This book shows many new aspects and includes important details. I didn't quite understand because of the writing but I recommend to anyone who feels they don't understand to read "The Celestine Prophecy" which supports "Journey to Ixtlan" very well. Many aspects like 'seeing' I couldn't comprehend but will become clear later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic I think it's a great book, to let you get in touch with your imagination, and a very different world view. I can't say it in my words, you have to read it.
