Carlos Castaneda's books and Tensegrity

These books contain storys about using human inner power. I'v read them all.
Castaneda was an anthropologist. He is talking about stuff what happen after he met old indian shaman in Mexico.

Well, many people think everything Castaneda said is a lie, that these books are full of fantasy and he made all storys up. I don't know what to think about that. Fact is, these books really inspire lot of people including myself.

I think its easy to find them in your local library.
If you enjoy or enjoyed Harry Potter, then I'm sure you enjoy Castaneda too.

If you already know about him, then hit a comment about what you think of his books and storys.

Internet is full of "how to use Castaneda books practical side, how to Lucid dream, how to defeat your EGO" etc. There are also groups of "followers" around the world. They call these techniques a Tensegrity. I'v been in a Tensegrity group but I wasn't sure, this is the "Thing" I seek, so I just quited being with them. I can't say anything bad about their attempts, because just sitting and doing nothing isn't better.


  1. Which Carlos Castaneda book did you find was the most enjoyable? I might pick up a copy if it is good.

    1. I read them over 30 years ago. I can't remember the 1st book but they are in as series. At least the 1st several. I know A Separate Reality & Journey to Ixtlan were right up there. Seems like inside the cover it named previous books in order. Last one I read was The art of dreaming. Still today I can control certain aspects of my dream state. I don't want to say too much. Just enjoy the trip. It's quite the adventure!

  2. Enjoyable for me may not be so enjoyable for you.

    Maybe you want to try to hear your inner voice or just pick a random one, that comes to your hand.

    5 years ago, I asked my friend to bring me some book that talks about paranormal stuff. He brought me Carlos Castaneda's "The Art of Dreaming". There are 13 books. That was the 9th.

    But for you... Maybe "Journey to Ixtlan: The Lessons of Don Juan" (©1972)sounds good?:D

  3. I've never heard of this author. I should check him out.

  4. I've read The Art of Dreaming. Great book but I haven't had the chance to read any other of his books yet since I already got plenty to read for school. I might get my hand on one for the holidays! Thanks for sharing.

  5. This is a legit blog you got here, you got yourself a new follower!

  6. I'll try picking up a copy gonna flip through it a bit and maybe take it home with me..very interessed in all that lucid dreaming and stuff

  7. Sounds like a great author, ill try to find some of the books as they seemed quite interesting.

  8. I've read them all too. It's great story. He is a great master. These books started to me like an adventure books or some kind of fantasy, but when i realized that they are so full of energy and intention. I had some special mood when i read it. It's great to see and feel that our world is not just what it seems to us.
    He is one of my greatest teacher in this life.
