The Teachings of don Juan: A Yaqui way of knowedge

by Carlos Castaneda - £9.99  Penguin (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780140192384 | ISBN 10: 0140192387

The first book in Carlos Castaneda's spiritual journey into the world of sorcery... In 1960 Carlos Castaneda first met don Juan, a Yaqui Indian feared and shunned by the ordinary folk of the American Southwest because of his universal powers. During the next five years don Juan's arcane knowledge lead Castaneda into a world of beauty and terror, ruled by concepts far beyond those of Western civilisation. Using psychedelic drugs - peyote, jimson weed and a mushroom called 'humito' - Castaneda lived through encounters with disembodied spirits, shamans in the form of huge wolves, and death in the shape of silver crows. Finally, after a night of utter terror in which he knew that his life was threatened by forces which he still cannot fully explain, he gave up his struggle to become a Man of Knowledge. 'The Teachings of don Juan' is the story of Carlos Castaneda's extraordinary experiences.
