Journey To Ixtlan
Recently I found myself feeling forced to download it to Kindle just so I could read a quote at a conference not having the physical copy with me. Yes, Castaneda wrote a lot of books. Yes, most of them are very interesting. Yes, it would be wise to start with his first, The Teachings of Don Juan: Yes, Journey to Ixtlan is probably the single most powerfully moving of all his books–though most of them have beautiful and memorable passages in them.
You can skip the second half of the first book–the part where he tries to put what he says was Don Juan’s teachings into anthropological mumbo-jumbo hoping he could so he said anyhow submit it for university credit. Ignore that part of book one completely. You can also completely skip in my own opinion the book about using various physical poses. Certain questions have gone unanswered, specifically: I’ve seen some compelling arguments to suggest that at least some pieces are a deliberate fiction like a passage about hiking all day in the heat of a Southwest summer day, without ever mentioning phenomenal water requirements or the possibility of death by heat stroke.
There are other things suggesting he really believed at least a part of the experiences he describes whether or not you the reader would literally believe them is an altogether separate issue. The book all about use of certain postures, much like a martial arts or a meditation book, also seems very matter-of-fact like, WHY BOTHER, unless someone actually instructed him in those things and he came to believe himself that they had some importance And yet, despite being a world view unique from other cultures, he portrays some profound and universal truths about the nature of living, and of a life well-lived as opposed to a life stumbled through, that I think virtually anyone who reads this seriously will be deeply moved.
Read it, and be moved.
Let it change your attitude toward life. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. As a long term avid reader of Castaneda I find “Journey to Ixtlan” a delightful read. Sometimes I can almost feel as if “Don Juan” was talking to me directly.
