Overview

Millions of readers worldwide have treasured the visionary brilliance of Carlos Castaneda, who first explore the world of the Yaqui Indian sorcerer in The Teachings of don Juan. Now, at last, don Juan returns in The Power of Silence—wise, infuriating, capable or working miracles and playing practical jokes, but always seeking the wisdom of the warrior.

The Power of Silence is Castaneda's most astonishing book to date — a brilliant flash of knowledge that illuminates the far reaches of the human mind. Through don Juan's mesmerizing stories, the true meaning of sorcery and magic is finally revealed. Honed in the desert of Sonora, the visions of don Juan give us the vital secrets of belief and self-realization that are transcendental and valid for us all. It is Castaneda's unique genius to show us that all wisdom, strength, and power lie within ourselves — unleashed with marvelous energy and imaginative force in the teachings of don Juan — and in the writings of his famous pupil, Carlos Castaneda

Library Journal
In this new work, Don Juanabsent from Castaneda's preceding three worksonce again appears prominently. To convey the advanced spirituality of the Yaqui shaman, Castaneda relates stories told by Don Juan and his own experiences with the don. Such mysterious concepts as ``stalking'' and ``intent,'' the ``knocking'' and trickery of the spirit, are all discussed. The vivid depictions of Don Juan's powers and personality will reawaken readers' fascination with earlier volumes, and since only one of three sets of six stories supposedly related by Don Juan appears here, doubtless more books are to come. Recommended for public libraries. C. Robert Nixon, M.L.S., Lafayette, Ind.
