Publisher Comments:

"A man of knowledge is free...he has no honor, no dignity, no family, no home, no country, but only life to be lived." --don Juan

In 1961 a young anthropologist subjected himself to an extraordinary apprenticeship to bring back a fascinating glimpse of a Yaqui Indian's world of "non-ordinary reality" and the difficult and dangerous road a man must travel to become "a man of knowledge." Yet on the bring of that world, challenging to all that we believe, he drew back.

Then in 1968, Carlos Castaneda returned to Mexico, to don Juan and his hallucinogenic drugs, and to a world of experience no man from our Western civilization had ever entered before.

Synopsis:

In The Teachings of Don Juan Castaneda published the account of his five-year apprenticeship to the Yaqui Indian Sorcerer don Juan. Now, in A Separate Reality, Castaneda tells how he returned to Mexico, to don Juan, and to a world of experience no man from Western Civilization had entered before. It is a fascinating journey into the heart of magic readers will not forget.

This is not the book to read if you are sleepy or can not concentrate on the topic at hand. I read this book when I was young, and perhaps that is why I did not grasp the concept and oddity of Don Juans flowing energy. However, I did like it enough that it is still on my book shelf many years later. I think I will try to find the time to reread this book and see just how much more makes sense to me.
