Sinopsis: Published in 1968 when Carlos Castaneda was still a graduate student in anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles, The Teachings of Don Juan experienced extraordinary success and generated intense controversy. Read by over a million readers worldwide, the book introduced many to shamanic traditions and the use of hallucinogenic drugs. The authenticity of the text was questioned by scholars when Castaneda refused to reveal the identity of his teacher, Don Juan Matus. Whether read as ethnographic fact or creative fiction, The Teachings of Don Juan remains an important document in late-twentieth-century American culture.
The Teachings of Don Juan initiated a generation of seekers dissatisfied with the limitations of the Western worldview. Castaneda?s now classic book remains controversial for the alternative way of seeing that it presents and the revolution in cognition it demands.
Reseña del editor: In addition to the publication of Magical Passes, 1998 marks the momentous occasion of another event in the works of Carlos Castaneda: the publication of a 30th anniversary edition of The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge. This special edition includes a new introduction by Carlos Castaneda, which provides a rare glimpse into the author's own view of experiences that encompass the total teachings of the shamans of ancient Mexico. What began thirty years ago with The Teachings of Don Juan has ceaselessly captivated readers worldwide, and this introduction will quite possibly offer the single most important overview of Carlos Castaneda's work.
