Book Review: Sorcerer's Apprentice - My Life with Carlos Castaneda by Amy Wallacecategories: Books, Biographies & Memoirs, Specific Groups, Women, toltec
Wallace ReviewWallace illuminates Castaneda's own truthfulness to his teachings and her misunderstanding of what he was trying to do even after years of reflection. She abhors his alleged guru control over people while acknowledging the fact that he tried desperately many times to remove himself from her obsessive presence. However, she admits that she followed his seminars at enormous expense around the country just to be seen by his associates with hopes of getting back in his good graces.
This picture is hardly the mind washing "cult" experience of a Jim Jones like horror sect that many conclude from a reading of the book. Castaneda is shown by the book as following the life that he preached in his book. He tried to show Amy Wallace that her life of me me me is very destructive to the achievement of attempting to understand the flow of energy in all things. She was obsessed admittedly with her romantic love for Carlos to his annoyance.
