2750 - The Teachings of Don Juan - A Fiftieth Anniversary Reflection
In 1968, Carlos Castaneda, an anthropology student at UCLA, published an ethnography of his apprenticeship with an elder Indian sorcerer in the Sonora Desert. In his ground breaking book, The Teachings of Don Juan, Castaneda both shocked the sensibilities of anthropologists and awed the public with his frank discussion of pre-Columbian herbal and consciousness raising arts, still practiced only one day's drive from Los Angeles. In this class we will examine The Teachings and several important chapters from Castaneda's later books for both inspirational and practical insights . Riverdave will offer his own diverse cross-cultural herbal experiences to facilitate a lively discussion of Castaneda's work that was so instrumental in introducing a traditional-magical dimension of plants to modern readers. A class guest will include a former student of Castaneda who now resides in North Carolina. Facilitated Discussion
