Hunter Muse & Jasun Horsley | The Mythos of Carlos Castaneda

    Hello i am suprised the discussion doesnt discuss the authenticity of the knowledge presented by casteneda and focuses on the personally rather than the knowledge presented.. My experience is that the knowledge presented if practiced is very practical Also a comparison to the yogic knowledge of india shows there is no real contradiction..These guests do not represent the teaching positively imo.
    and take much of it out of context.judging it by its followers rather than on its own merit…
