    Carlos Castanada was a student of anthropology when he met Don Juan Matus, a Yaqui shaman and the inspiration for Castanada’s The Teachings of Don Juan. In this controversial work, Castanada relays his experiences being challenged by his mentor on his perception of the world and all living things in it.

    Story
    If you could sum up Journey to Ixtlan in three words, what would they be?

    closure.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Don Genaro.
    His teaching style is so different to that of Don Juan. He plays a much more important role in this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The perceptions of reality without the use of psychotropic plants. (the lost car in particular)
    Close second is the details of the feud with Catalina.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Don Genaro's story at the end made me cry. The insight he gives into the life of a 'Man of Knowledge' was something Don Juan never touched on.


    Any additional comments?

    You must listen to the first 2 books before this one

  • 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

    In this riveting, accessible work of science, Charles Mann takes us on an enthralling journey of scientific exploration. We learn that the Indian development of modern corn was one of the most complex feats of genetic engineering ever performed. That the Great Plains are a third smaller today than they were in 1700 because the Indians who maintained them by burning died. And that the Amazon rain forest may be largely a human artifact.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better layout either by time or regions.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator reminded me of a boring college class that you hate but need the credits.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 1491?

    I would piece it together better.


    Any additional comments?

    I really thought it would have better structure than this. Very hard to listen to and harder to follow.

    For over 40 years, Carlos Castaneda’s The Teachings of Don Juan has inspired audiences to expand their world view beyond traditional Western forms. Originally published as Castaneda’s master’s thesis in anthropology, Teachings documents Castaneda’s supposed apprenticeship with a Yaqui Indian sorcerer, don Juan Matus. Dividing the work into two sections, Castaneda begins by describing don Juan’s philosophies, then continues with his own reflections.

    What made the experience of listening to The Teachings of Don Juan the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is great. Story is amazing. The wisdom is so unique and one of kind.


    What other book might you compare The Teachings of Don Juan to and why?

    So unique it's hard to compare to anything else.


    What does Luis Moreno bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    TONE!! Luis has an amazing ability to transition between characters so well. So far he is the best narrator I've heard.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The extent a person is willing to go to acquire knowledge. Reminds me of me.


    Any additional comments?

    An absolute must for all students of shamanic culture.
