Publisher's Summary

With The Teachings of Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda chronicled a journey toward enlightenment under the tutelage of Yaqui Indian guru don Juan. Having sold more than eight million copies of his books around the world, Castaneda has inspired countless readers with his awareness-expanding experiences. After spending five years with Don Juan in the early 60s, Castaneda returned to Mexico in 1968 to continue his exploration of non-ordinary reality and draw ever closer to his ultimate goal of becoming a man of knowledge. Far from Western civilization, Don Juan and his world of hallucinogenic drugs offer insight and inducements toward true awakening—wisdom that Castaneda passes on in this astounding work.

Not for everyone, but everyone could learn from it

What did you love best about A Separate Reality?

Luis Moreno is a very good, engrossing narrator for the Castaneda books. Of course, it can't hurt that I am totally enthralled by the story and experiences portrayed.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, more laughter than tears but there were experiences at both extremes.

Any additional comments?

This is a very powerful story and while I disagree, some extreme religious readers may find too much issue with the perspective portrayed to get the real meaning and truth behind the story.

The story was gripping - one wanted to know always what was going to happen next...

when Carlos began to understand towards the end what it means to be a sorcerer and becoming aware of his powers - his opening towards this knowledge. <br/>

Which character – as performed by Luis Moreno – was your favourite?

Don Juan

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really!

Any additional comments?

I would highly recommend.. i found it very helpful to go over sections again few times to understand - it helped me to let go of my thoughts and I felt on a similar path to Carlos at times even though I don't take the psychotropic drugs, that was what i found fascinating
