Description

For over 40 years, Carlos Castaneda’s The Teachings of Don Juan has inspired audiences to expand their world view beyond traditional Western forms. Originally published as Castaneda’s master’s thesis in anthropology, Teachings documents Castaneda’s supposed apprenticeship with a Yaqui Indian sorcerer, don Juan Matus. Dividing the work into two sections, Castaneda begins by describing don Juan’s philosophies, then continues with his own reflections.

Commentaires

"It's impossible to view the world in quite the same way after reading him.... If Castaneda is correct, there is another world, a sometimes beautiful and sometimes frightening world, right before our eyes at this moment - if only we could see." ( Chicago Tribune)

Fiction or Non Fiction? You decide

Lots of skepticism around this book. Worth checking out and deciding for yourself. I loved it and find relevance regardless whether it is a true account or not.

I liked it better when I was in high school

The Teachings of Don Juan was an influential book for me in high school. It was my introduction to thinking about “the meaning of life” and the ephemerality of life... that we are all beings that are going to die. Castaneda says the real struggle of man is with infinity, and is actually an acquiescence to infinity. His key message that still resonates with me, even this second time through....that all paths lead nowhere, but the path with a heart makes you strong.

While I still relate to and embrace this message, the cadence of the book, and professorial-like instructions / teachings, especially at the end of the book, seemed less meaningful to me than they did in high school.

Maybe it’s just another reason why getting old sucks!

great story

What does Luis Moreno bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Moreno gives a great reading of this story. I am happy with his narration.

The Teachings of Don Juan

I was very fortunate to have actually met the author. This was sometime in the late seventies or early eighties. I was living with my teacher, who was a native american medicine person. When this odd sort of person just showed up one day and stayed for... somewhere around one or two weeks. He would always sit away from the main group and simply watch, listen, and write. I do not wish to elaborate here, but I have to say that the personal experiences I had when I would notice him were enough to make me believe that Mr. Castaneda did indeed have a spiritual gift and that he had also received some very real training. He ended up leaving a notebook behind when he left and I did read what he had written. One page included an unpublished declaration of release, by Don Juan. To this very day, I still use it!

I can't believe I ever thought this was great

I read this ages ago, when I was in college. Why I ever thought the ramblings of some grad student getting high was worthy of my praise is kind of beyond me now. It was a period piece. Served its purpose when I was 20. I'm 'way past this now.

Absolutely enthralling from beginning to end

Best narration! Even better story! I honestly am not sure whether I'm in the reality of the book or this reality while listening it was so we'll done!

Outstanding, great book and best narration. When it comes to Carlos Castaneda's audiobooks, Luis Moreno brings the books to life.

Excellent story and presentation

Includes note from Carlos Castaneda that were added to the 30th Anniversary publication edition. I found these most useful in tying together many of his early and later works. Luis Moreno does a wonderful job reading the work and additional comments.

Not quite what I expected

If you could sum up The Teachings of Don Juan in three words, what would they be?

The world is a dark and frightening place that's out to get you unless you have a powerful ally or access to magic powers.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Didn't make it to the ending.

If you could give The Teachings of Don Juan a new subtitle, what would it be?

For shamanic practitioners

Any additional comments?

I can't quite blame it on the book, to be honest. Rather it was a case of misplaced expectations on my part. For some reason I expected it to be a story of an inspiring spiritual journey, self discovery and rising consciousness. Instead it was a very detailed and meticulously transcribed personal encounter with shamanic culture and rituals. I found the narrator talented and artistic, who used his quite voice skillfully to enhance the drama of the story. Again, you may find the book fascinating if you are interested in the shamanic culture. I am not, so I never made it to the end, although I found it amusing at times but not much more.

Fantasy or Reality

The Holy Bible is like that. But Carlos Castaneda is a world you can touch and be a part of as the story unfolds.

Enttäuschend

Ich habe es wirklich eine Chance gegeben als Kultbücher der 70'er Jahren aber nach 5 Stünden der langweilste und seichtste Prosa man sich verstellen kann, habe ich es aufgegeben. Schade!
