Carlos CastaÒeda is an anthropologist who has dedicated thirty years of his life to studying the world of shamans who lived in Mexico in ancient times. He has written ten books on this subject, during and after his apprenticeship with don Juan Matus, a Yagui Indian shaman from Mexico.
This book is a collection of quotes derived from those books. The quotations, by themselves, show a strand of continuity, which was not dictated by the teacher, don Juan Matus, nor by the student, Carlos CastaÒeda. It seems to be an independent trend set in motion by the shamans of old Mexico themselves.
Accompanying the quotations, Carlos CastaÒeda has written his personal commentaries. Together, the quotations and commentaries create a counterpoint of ideas that will be of great interest to the reader.

" Carlos CastaÒeda is one of the most profound and influential thinkers of this century. His insights are paving the direction for the future evolution of human consciousness. We should all be deeply indebted to him."--Deepak Chopra
