This book opened up a new vista, a possibility of living in a meaningful and honourful way, something I had been looking for all my life, but which always eluded me. In the past I had read the books of Carlos Castaneda, I loved them but the question remained: how does it relate to my daily life. Well, this is the REAL thing: Théun Mares, gives the answers and they are not easy and not glamorous. It is about taking the gap to freedom through learning to meet your challenges impeccably in daily li ...more

I was very glad to push my reading of the Toltec writers further and read Return of the Warriors by Theun Mares. He presents a very sober account of his knowledge, what is particularly on my mind about this book is its emphasis on recapitulation, and explanatory notes about the process.

This series demystifies the Toltec tradition by replacing allegory with the practical application of Toltec techniques. That being said, there is a lot of implied knowledge of Toltec terminology which makes this series somewhat inaccessible to anyone that is not familiar with the Carlos Castaneda body of work. Will you still gain useful insights? Absolutely. Will you derive full benefit without first reading Carlos Castaneda? Probably not.

“Average man is arrogant, because he is ever impressed by reason and always bows his head to it. Reason makes us believe that our challenges in life are to be avoided at all costs. This is to be a coward who does not have the self-respect needed in order to honour the marvellous gift of life.” 4 likes
