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.

"It's impossible to view the world in quite the same way after reading him.... If Castaneda is correct, there is another world, a sometimes beautiful and sometimes frightening world, right before our eyes at this moment - if only we could see." (Chicago Tribune)
I'm curious & creative and I love new ideas about life!
Crazy people who like hallucinogenic drugs!
I kept waiting for something to happen or to get some kind of understanding from this book, but it just kept going on an on about these hallucinogenic trips. It was actually very dull & pointless. Of all the books that I've ordered, this was the only one that I couldn't bear to finish!
The stories were great but at times it felt like a lecture.
The experiences of the author while hallucinating. I found the section with the lizards very interesting.
I might try one more only because of recommendation from a friend
I wouldn't recommend this book since one cannot replicate any of the experiences.
flat and boring
