Publisher's Summary

From Carlos Castaneda's first book, The Teachings of Don Juan to The Power of Silence, millions of readers have long enjoyed the fantastic teachings of don Juan Matus, the Yaqui shaman from northern Mexico. Here, Victor Sanchez offers practical techniques based on Castaneda's writings, including experiencing the body as a field of energy, the not-doings of the personal self, stopping the internal dialogue, the magic of attention, setting up dreaming, the warrior's greatest love, and more.

    "Too much time on techniques"

    I would have preferred to read the Don Juan books and caught the process(es) in the narrative of what Sanchez was summarizing here: Climbing trees. Getting permission from trees. Hanging 35 feet in the air on a harrass. Impersonating the fool both to yourself and to strangers, in an bid to transcend ego ("not doing") and attain heightened awareness. These images and more are contained in the strategies of this audioook.

    Nope, not for me! :(

    Not only are some of these techniques creepy, like caressing the (living) skeleton of your girlfriend, for example, many of these directives are unnecessarily difficult and impractical to execute logistically.

    I was hoping this audiobook would discuss the principles of reality and non-reality. What I heard after the first hour was a manual on how to confound your ego and freak out your co-workers. Learning magic or shamanizing is not my ultimate intent, I just want to read about the experiences, get to the revelations--cliff notes style--and meditate on what I read. :)
