For us to perceive any of the worlds that exist beside our own, not only do we have to covet them but we need to have sufficient energy to seize them. In this revolutionary book, Carlos Castaneda offers readers the key to this energetic conditioning for the first time, revealing a series of body positions and physical movements that enabled various sorcerers, and their apprentices, to navigate their own sorceric journeys. By sharing this centuries-old wisdom, Carlos Castaneda makes it possible for readers to travel to some of these other realms, which are as real, unique, absolute, and engulfing as our own world. Castaneda offers both a philosophical history of magical passes and an innovative, easy-to-understand instructional format, complete with more than 450 computer-generated illustrations. Written with humor, clarity, and authority, Magical Passes further illuminates the true meaning of sorcery and magic.
Carlos Castaneda was the author of the bestselling books, including the acknowledged classic The Teaching of Don Juan and most recently The Art of Dreaming and Magical Passes. He departed on his definitive journey in 1998.

From Our Editors

Carlos Castaneda explores the world of dreams and how Mexican shamans have come to interpret this process in Magical Passes: The Practical Wisdom of the Shamans of Ancient Mexico. In it, Castaneda looks at "tensegrity," the term he uses to describe the specialized movements of the body and magical passes, necessary to spiritual navigation. Castaneda demonstrates how these movements are the pathway to shamanistic dreaming and seeing, and shows readers how to master these movements so they can journey to new realms of perception. In addition to Castaneda's engaging text, this engaging book contains more than 450 illustrations.
