Summary

"Ordinarily, events that change our path are impersonal affairs, and yet extremely personal. My teacher, Don Juan Matsus, said this is guiding me as his apprentice to collect what I considered to be the memorable events of my life.... Don Juan described the total goal of the shamanistic knowledge that he handled as the preparation for facing the definitive journey: the journey that every human being has to take at the end of his life. He said that what modern man referred to vaguely as life after death was, for those shamans, a concrete region filled to capacity with practical affairs of a different order than the practical affairs of daily life, yet bearing a similar functional practicality. Don Juan considered that to collect the memorable in their lives was, for shamans, the preparation for their entrance into that concrete region, which they called the active side of infinity." 

In this audiobook authored immediately before his death, anthropologist and shaman Carlos Castaneda gives us his most autobiographical and intimately revealing work ever, the fruit of a lifetime of experience and perhaps the most moving volume in his oeuvre.

Sheer Brilliance - a must read

This book raises as many questions as it answers, sewing and feeding the seeds of a real search for the Sorcerer's way.

Incredible and awe inspiring!

Thank you for the creators of this collective experience!
The personal experiences and elaborations of this work really open your mind to a world much more. After going through the authors first book TEACHINGS I had been lead to this work. I absolutely recommend going through the first before this in order to get the frame of reference and connotation this work is built upon. A must have experience for all seekers!
