The teachings of don Juan is the story of a remarkable journey: the first awesome steps on the road to becoming a "man of knowledge" -- the road that continues with A Separate Reality and Journey to Ixtlan.
"For me there is only the travelling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel, looking, looking, breathlessly." -- Don Juan
First published in 1968, this landmark book is the first and best-loved of Carlos Castaneda's spiritual bestsellers, transfixing a generation. Initiated while a student of anthropology at UCLA, his interviews with shaman known as Don Juan introduce us to new definitions of cognition, infinity, and energy. As Walter Goldschmidt notes in his foreword, "By experiencing other worlds we see our own for what it is."
