Summary

In 1968, with the publication of Carlos Castaneda's The Teachings of Don Juan, the spiritual search was revealed to be as incredibly exciting as any death-defying adventure which human beings may be drawn to undertake.

As the years have passed, Dr. Castaneda has come to be seen as an anthropologist of the soul, showing us that the inner world has its own inaccessible mountains, forbidding deserts, and awesomely beautiful dangers which we are all called to confront.

Listen and marvel as Coyote and Castaneda draw us into a breathtaking world of magical reality and ultimate truth.

©1968 Carlos Castaneda (P)1998, 2016 Audio Literature, Phoenix Books

Critic reviews

"Coyote makes us listen to Don Juan's vision with fresh ears; he enlivens this mystical search with a sense of mystery and poetry." (Listener's Guide to Audio Books)

A look into an ancient knowledge

Very easy to listen to and a great entry into the world of "sorcery" -for lack of a better word-

Thrilling and transcendental

Beautiful story, rich in wisdom and very well performed by Coyote. What stays with me most is: All paths lead to nowhere.The only way to chose a path is to ask: Does this path have a heart? I hope to move forward in my life with this belief, always.

Excellent audio read by Peter Wolf

This audio talks only of the teaching between Don Juan and Carlos Castaneda. The physical copy of the book has more information than is givin here. Still excellent 👍

Essentially spark notes version

Great story but this version is extremely condensed and leaves out so many details. Would look for another audio book version. The 10 hour one.

*LESSON: “Careful for what you ask for…”

As a Yaqui myself… As I was listening to the teachings of Don Juan, I honestly felt I was on the edge of my seat, hands / feet sweating, my heart was racing… as if I was the apprentice being taught. When the book ended I wanted more ~ immediately after finishing the audible book I listened to it again!

Beautiful

Read so well, so articulately, the few Spanish phrases were so beautiful- I wanted to hear all of it in Spanish, though I don’t speak Spanish. Thank you Peter Coyote. The edit seemed very good too. I’m 65, I loved revisiting this work.

LSD trips are not my cup of tea

Struggled to finish. Some universal truths, but too much about taking mushrooms to get there.
