Castaneda, as the researcher, placed himself at the center of his book, writing it from the point of view of his own reactions rather than laying out an ethnography. I think we all want to believe that ancient primitive cultures librro a deep “knowing” ixtan we’ve all forgotten in our “civilized ways,” and tapping into that can be a pro I wanted to like this book and expected to get a lot out of it as my first read by Castaneda, but I found I had to force myself to read it in fits and starts and it took me the better part of a month.

I’ve classed this volume as psychology [one could also, legitimately, class them as religion or as fiction] because so much of its content has to do with what we conventionally call “altered states” and relegate to psychologists. It’s hard to set all this aside while reading Journey to Ixtlan. He moved to the United States in the early s and became a naturalized citizen in An older friend of mine recommended it to me.

This for me is always a good si This is the first in a series of books which Castaneda wrote after he realized that his prior emphasis on psychotropic drugs was a misleading and “erroneous” means of conveying the lessons he gained from his apprenticeship with don Juan.
