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 the 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. By sharing this centuries-old wisdom, from a tradition that stretches back more than 27 generations, 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. He 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.

Carlos Castaneda is the author of nine bestselling books, including the acknowledged classics The Teachings of Don Juan and most recently The Art of Dreaming.
