Publisher's Summary

With The Teachings of Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda chronicled a journey toward enlightenment under the tutelage of Yaqui Indian guru don Juan. Having sold more than eight million copies of his books around the world, Castaneda has inspired countless readers with his awareness-expanding experiences. After spending five years with Don Juan in the early 60s, Castaneda returned to Mexico in 1968 to continue his exploration of non-ordinary reality and draw ever closer to his ultimate goal of becoming a man of knowledge. Far from Western civilization, Don Juan and his world of hallucinogenic drugs offer insight and inducements toward true awakening—wisdom that Castaneda passes on in this astounding work.

    Story
    "I loved it!!"

    This was wonderfully done and I would love it if Audio would obtain other audio books by Casteneda and read by Luis Moreno. I would especially like to see "Tales of Power" and The Power of Silence."
    Carlos Castaneda is a masterful storyteller and Luis Moreno was a great choice to read his works.

    Story
    "Not for everyone, but everyone could learn from it"
    What did you love best about A Separate Reality?

    Luis Moreno is a very good, engrossing narrator for the Castaneda books. Of course, it can't hurt that I am totally enthralled by the story and experiences portrayed.


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

    Yes, more laughter than tears but there were experiences at both extremes.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very powerful story and while I disagree, some extreme religious readers may find too much issue with the perspective portrayed to get the real meaning and truth behind the story.

    "As perfect a reading of this amazing text as can b"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd read the Castaneda books multiple times in college, and knew the reading would have to be very special to preserve the beauty and integrity of Don Juan's words. Moreno is pitch perfect.

    He's a fine voice actor.

    "Mind shifting"

    A necessary follow on from the first book. Lots of food for thought. There weren't as many messages as in teachings. But those that there were, are a total mind shifter.

    "Great story! Great narration!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Luis Moreno gives a great performance and reading. The sound quality is great. Also, the reading is matched with a good narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good story of a Shaman of Mexico. It is a great historic documentation of a somewhat primitive culture.

    Story
    "Universal Knowledge is Power..."

    The knowledge Don Juan shares with Carlos is beyond the normal society's terms of practical. It is a way to become eternally conscious and truly see... I feel proudly blessed to have come across this information and know it's wisdom will endure eternity.

    Story
    "Excellent all round"
    What did you like most about A Separate Reality?

    The story was gripping - one wanted to know always what was going to happen next...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Separate Reality?

    when Carlos began to understand towards the end what it means to be a sorcerer and becoming aware of his powers - his opening towards this knowledge.


    Which character – as performed by Luis Moreno – was your favourite?

    Don Juan


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

    Not really!


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend.. i found it very helpful to go over sections again few times to understand - it helped me to let go of my thoughts and I felt on a similar path to Carlos at times even though I don't take the psychotropic drugs, that was what i found fascinating
