Magical passes: the practical wisdom of the Shamans of ancient Mexico
1st Harper Perennial ed.
For us to perceive any of the worlds that exist beside our own, not only do we have to covet them but we need to have sufficient energy to seize them. In this revolutionary book, Carlos Castaneda offers readers the key to this energetic conditioning for the first time, revealing a series of body positions and physical movements that enabled various sorcerers, and their apprentices, to navigate their own sorceric journeys. By sharing this centuries-old wisdom, Carlos Castaneda makes it possible for readers to travel to some of these other realms, which are as real, unique, absolute, and engulfing as our own world. Castaneda offers both a philosophical history of magical passes and an innovative, easy-to-understand instructional format, complete with more than 450 computer-generated illustrations. Written with humor, clarity, and authority, Magical Passes further illuminates the true meaning of sorcery and magic.

|display_description||Translates the magical passes used by Yaqui Indian sorcerers into a series of movements and exercises that can be used to increase immunity and heighten well-being. "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.|
