But, the last chapter, the confession of knowing once you make this transformation, there’s no turning back, and one is still human once conquering their “ally” and seeing the other worlds…and one cannot go back to the place they once called home in spite of taking the rest of their life to journey back.

What baffles me the most is that skeptics-and I was one-fixate on the impossibility of the story without so much as trying any of the prescribed techniques. Well…that is what stopping the world entails; shutting off our constant description of the world as reiterated by all those around us for just long enough to focus on nothing at all…or to focus ourselves on just one thing.

Jul 17, Aaron Dennis rated it it was amazing. It is in this wonderful story that Carlos introduces many concepts, or rather elucidates on many concepts, which Don Juan had introduced since their initial encounter; not-doing, stopping the world, living as a warrior, and dreaming. It was the fictional journey of a sorcerer’s apprentice. If we follow the first, we end up bored to death with ourselves and with the world. There are no ictlan topics on this book yet. Supporters claim the books are either true or at least valuable works of castzneda and descriptions of practices, which enable an increased awareness.


In a sense, Castaneda is a throwback to the 18’th century, when there was a convention of castanda fiction as though it were factual travel writing; think of Swift and Defoe.

El argumento sigue siendo el mismo: Nonetheless, there’s a lot of charm to Journey, in terms of what he writes about. The previous two were more concerned with hallucinogenic plants and his experiences with them which he thought was the right track for him to write on. But it differs from most occult masterpieces in that Castaneda allows the reader to feel the process of initiation, and the doubts and anxieties it generates, in a moment by moment way.

Journey to Ixtlan

Viajw was travelling to Brooklyn, by bus, one hour each way; so I needed a book to pass the time. He discusses information ixtlsn was apparently missing from the first two books regarding stopping the world which previously he had only regarded as a metaphor.

Beyond that, however, I’ve had a couple of auditions hearing voices which weren’t coming from anyone another in the room would have hearda rather unpleasant hallucinatory episode and at least two induced breakthroughs to domains radically different than this one I’m typing in–all of which felt realer-than-real.

In later books, Juan describes that there are only so many kinds of men, and that Genaro is a man of action. It is as real as the greatest fiction, and it doesn’t lose its hold on the reader even when you know he made most of it up by piecing together all kinds of occult texts in the UCLA library. Once the real world is accessed, one cannot go home again.

I really appreciated the fact that he disregarded his original emphasis on the significance of phsychotropic drugs in the teachings of Don Juan and really focused more on the changing of one’s consciousness without using drugs.

Want to Read saving…. This author wrote other similar books; for me however, one was enough. They demonstrate what a little character development can do as a pedagogical tool for making metaphysics accessible and light.
