Originally drawn to Yaqui Indian spiritual leader don Juan Matus for his knowledge of psychotropic plants, bestselling author Carlos Castaneda immersed himself in the sorcerer’s magical world. Ten years after his first encounter with the shaman, Castaneda examines his field notes and comes to understand what don Juan knew all along—psychotropic plants are merely a means to understanding alternative realities that one cannot fully embrace on one’s own. Journey to Ixtlan introduces these clear new ideas—omitted from Castaneda’s classic volumes The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality—to the reader for the first time. Castaneda explores, as he comes to experience it himself, his own final voyage into the teachings of don Juan, and shares with us what it is like to truly "stop the world" and perceive reality on his own terms.

Im Zentrum dieses Berichts steht wieder Don Juan, der große Zauberer und Lehrmeister, der die Schar seiner Schüler, darunter den Autor, durch seine Einsichten und magischen Künste verblüfft und mit ihnen zusammen eine neue Welt plant und zu konstruieren versucht. Der mit der Erzählweise Castanedas vertraute Leser findet sich in der 'Zauberwelt' in der 'anderen Wirklichkeit', sofort zurecht, und der neue Leser wird keine Mühe haben, den belehrenden, fast platonischen Dialogen zu folgen und sich den verschiedenen Handlungssträngen, die immer wieder von magischen Ereignissen durchkreuzt werden, anzuvertrauen. Die Welt Castanedas ist für viele seiner Leser zu einer Alltagswelt geworden, und die Anziehung, die von seinen Erkundungen im Reich der Phantasie, Visionen, der Denkmöglichkeiten und - unmöglichkeiten ausgeht, scheint ungebrochen zu sein.

History is littered with evidence of humanity's fascination with drugs and the pursuit of altered states. From early Romanticism to late-nineteenth-century occultism and from fin de siècle Paris to contemporary psychedelic shamanism, psychoactive substances have playedcatalyzing people. Yet serious analysis of the religious dimensions of modern drug use is still lacking. the use of drugs and the pursuit of transcendence from the nineteenth century to the present day. Beginning with the Romantic fascination with opium, it chronicles the discovery of anesthetics, the psychiatric and religious interest in hashish, the bewitching power of mescaline and hallucinogenic fungi, the more recent uses of LSD, as well as the debates surrounding drugs and religious experience. This fascinating and wide-ranging sociological and cultural history fills a major gap in the study of religion in the modern world and our understanding of the importance of countercultural thought, offering new and timely insights into the controversial relationship between drugs and mystical experience.

Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the account of an extraordinarily talented lucid dreamer who goes beyond the boundaries of both psychology and religion. In the process, he stumbles upon the Inner Self. While lucid (consciously aware) in the dream state and able to act and interact with dream figures, objects, and settings, dream expert Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. He was able to interact consciously with the dream observer - the apparent Inner Self - within the dream. At first this seemed shocking, even impossible, since psychology normally alludes to such theoretical inner aspects as the Subliminal Self, the Center, the Internal Self-Helper in vague and theoretical ways. Waggoner came to realize, however, that aware interaction with the Inner Self was not only possible, but actual and highly inspiring. He concluded that while aware in the dream state, one has both a psychological tool and a platform from which to understand dreaming and the larger picture of man's psyche as well. Waggoner proposes 5 stages of lucid dreaming and guides readers through them, offering advice for those who have never experienced the lucid dream state and suggestions for how experienced lucid dreamers can advance to a new level. Lucid Dreaming offers exciting insights and vivid illustrations that will intrigue not only avid dreamworkers but anyone who is interested in consciousness, identity, and the definition of reality.

Er nimmt sie mit in seine Hütte und gewährt ihr für ein paar Tage Unterschlupf. Der zurückgezogene Künstler spürt jedoch, dass die wunderschöne Frau ein Geheimnis mit sich herumträgt, das zu schrecklich ist, um es ihm anzuvertrauen. Zu schrecklich, um überhaupt jemandem zu vertrauen. Schritt für Schritt kommen die beiden sich näher. Der Maler und die Frau, die er liebend gerne malen würde – und in seinem Leben behalten würde.

In diesem wohl erstaunlichsten und zugleich persönlichsten Buch Castanedas wird der Leser gleichsam in das Zentrum der Zauberlehren Don Juans entführt. In keinem der früheren Bücher werden Vorstellungskraft und Vernunft derart auf die Probe gestellt und die Grundlagen des alltäglichen Glaubens an das 'Natürliche' und 'Logische' so erschüttert. Die von Castaneda entworfene Szenerie ist voller Schreckensbilder, geheimnisvoller Kräfte und verwirrender Einblicke in unter- oder übernatürliche Welten. Doch dank der klaren wie geschliffenen Sprache und der unerschöpflichen, immer neue Bereiche eröffnenden Phantasie des Autors wirken Landschaften und Gestalten wie von einem Blitz erhellt. Das Land der Zauberer, in dem Castaneda sein magisches Wissen vervollkommnet, das Land mit seinen Wüsten, Bergen und Höhlen ist beherrscht von der Allgegenwart des nur körperlich abwesenden Zauberlehrers Don Juan, der Castaneda nach beider beinahe schon legendärem Zusammentreffen auf eine abenteuerliche Reise in die Welt der Zauberer und Geister mitgenommen hat.

In terms of public opinion, new religious movements are considered controversial for a variety of reasons. Their social organization often runs counter to popular expectations by experimenting with communal living, alternative leadership roles, unusual economic dispositions, and new political and ethical values. As a result the general public views new religions with a mixture of curiosity, amusement, and anxiety, sustained by lavish media emphasis on oddness and tragedy rather than familiarity and lived experience. This updated and revised second edition of Controversial New Religions offers a scholarly, dispassionate look at those groups that have generated the most attention, including some very well-known classical groups like The Family, Unification Church, Scientology, and Jim Jones's People's Temple; some relative newcomers such as the Kabbalah Centre, the Order of the Solar Temple, Branch Davidians, Heaven's Gate, and the Falun Gong; and some interesting cases like contemporary Satanism, the Raelians, Black nationalism, and various Pagan groups. Each essay combines an overview of the history and beliefs of each organization or movement with original and insightful analysis. By presenting decades of scholarly work on new religious movements written in an accessible form by established scholars as well as younger experts in the field, this book will be an invaluable resource for all those who seek a view of new religions that is deeper than what can be found in sensationalistic media stories.
