80 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this astonishing, luminous and terrifying work, Carlos Castaneda at last completes the long journey into the world of sorcery that began with his now-legendary meeting with don Juan ... In a sense, Castaneda's three earlier books, each of them the story of a triumphant and daring journey into the unknown, have been merely the long pereparation for Tales of Power, in which don Juan's task of educating Castaneea, of making him 'a man of knowledge' and 'a man of power, ' is brought to an unexpected conclusion in a series of dazzling tricks, visions and lessons, ending in an explanation which is at once an initiation and a deeply moving farewell"--Cover

100 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The art of dreaming by Carlos Castaneda( Book )

68 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With The Art of Dreaming, you will learn, as Carlos did, how finding the way to alternate realities through the consciousness of dreams is the essence of the great sorcerers; how ancient, remarkable, and sometimes dangerous beings now live among us; and how don Juan's training allows two or more people to dream and explore together. You will witness an adventure of the psyche unlike any other you've ever experienced, and you will participate fully in Castaneda's latest discoveries and explorations - discoveries and explorations that are as eye-opening and thrilling as anything he's ever written about before. Most of all, however, you will be utterly captivated by the story of this man's remarkable life and journeys of the soul; journeys that could only come from the teachings of don Juan, and the writings of Carlos Castaneda

Una realidad aparte : nuevas conversaciones con Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda( Book )

42 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En estas nuevas conversaciones con su maestro, el brujo yaqui Juan Matus, Carlos Castaneda reanuda su pugna por asimilar el conocimiento arcaico que hace del mundo un lugar pletórico de maravillas y misterios, poblado por entidades extrañas - imágenes arquetípicas, concretizaciones de energía telúrica - y que permite al iniciado vivir una vida verdadera y ganar poder sobre las cosas. La batalla del aprendiz es doble, pues además de enfrentar peligros mortales en sus contactos con la "otra" realidad debe vencerse a sí mismo y superar moldes de pensamiento inculcados desde la infancia. Pasado el estupor de la primera inmersión en lo desconocido, narrada en Las enseñanzas de don Juan, este segundo aspecto de la lucha crece en importancia; el relato se vuelve más personal, más inmediato, y se amplía también la visión del ámbito social en el que don Juan se mueve
Viaje a Ixtlán : las lecciones de Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda( Book )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in Spanish and German and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En el tercer libro sobre su iniciación como hombre de conocimiento, Castaneda desanda camino hasta los primeros tratos con su maestro, el brujo yaqui don Juan, y añade al recuento de prodigios las arduas lecciones de disciplina física y mental que, desde un principio, lo preparaban para un acto decisivo de poder: parar el mundo, suspender la percepción ordinaria, situarse entre esta realidad y la otra, la inculcada por el maestro. Esa realidad aparte, eje de las enseñanzas anteriormente reveladas, cobra así nuevo sentido como punto de apoyo, y el centro se desplaza hacia la mística del guerrero, el hombre sin rutinas, libre, fuido, imprevisible, que fiel a su esencial naturaleza terrena vive una vida impecable. El tema cierra con el relato del viaje al que alude el título, intimación dramática de la soledad y la áspera nobleza de tal vida." Viñeta: Francisco Toledo (portada)

The eagle's gift by Carlos Castaneda( Book )

56 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carlos Castaneda takes the reader into the very heart of sorcery, challenging both imagination and reason, shaking the very foundations of our belief in what is "natural" and "logical." His landscape is full of terrors and mysterious forces, as sharply etched as a flash of lightning on the deserts and mountains where don Juan takes him to pursue the sorcerer's knowledge'the knowledge that it is the Eagle that gives us, at our births, a spark of awareness, that it expects to reclaim at the end of our lives and which the sorcerer, through his discipline, fights to retain. Castaneda describes how don Juan and his party, left thisworld'"the warriors of don Juan's party had caught me for an eternal instant, before they vanished into the total light, before the Eagle let them go through"'and how he, himself, upon witnessing such a sight, jumped into the abyss
The fire from within by Carlos Castaneda( Book )

40 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each of Carlos Castaneda's books is a brilliant and tantalizing burst of illumination into the depths of our deepest mysteries, like a sudden flash of light, like a burst of lightning over the desert at night, which shows us a world that is both alien and totally familiar -- the landscape of our dreams. Fire from Within is the author's most brilliant thought-provoking and unusual book, one in which Castaneda, under the tutelage of don Juan and his "disciples," at last constructs, from the teachings of don Juan and his own experiences, a stunning portrait of the "sorcerer's world" that is crystal-clear and dizzying in its implications

Voir : les enseignements d'un sorcier yaqui by Carlos Castaneda( Book )

23 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in French and Multiple languages and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage ethnologique, publié en 1968, est un excellent reportage sur la sorcellerie contemporaine dans un contexte encore primitif mais loin d'être primaire. Très intéressant en ce sens qu'il constitue la relation fidèle d'une expérience vivante et très révélatrice qui, en plus de la sorcellerie que le contexte exotique évoque et même provoque, tient compte des implications parapsychologiques qui en ressortent.

Magical passes : the practical wisdom of the Shamans of ancient Mexico by Carlos Castaneda( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thirty years ago, Carlos Castaneda published The Teachings of Don Juan, the story of a magical journey into the unknown. Under the tutelage of don Juan Matus, the young anthropologist entered another world and emerged to give readers of his first book glimpses of the "nonordinary reality" of a Yaqui Indian sorcerer. Castaneda wrote eight more books, most recently The Art of Dreaming, which describes don Juan's teaching methods as well as the sorcery arts he made Castaneda practice." "Castaneda learned that for us to perceive any of the worlds that exist beside our own, we must not only covet them but find sufficient energy to seize them. Magical Passes offers readers the key to this energetic conditioning for the first time. In his revolutionary new book, Castaneda reveals a series of body positions and physical movements that have enabled various shamans and their apprentices to navigate their own sorceric journeys." "The magical passes described in this unusual new volume allow those who practice them to travel the same road as the Mexican sorcerers and their apprentices - in addition to Carlos Castaneda, the apprentices of don Juan include Florinda Donner-Grau, Taisha Abelar, and Carol Tiggs - and to honor don Juan's quest while embarking on their own exploration into unknown worlds. The movements described in Magical Passes allow the practitioner to achieve new levels of physical and mental vitality."--Jacket
