About Carlos Castaneda

Portrait of Carlos Castaneda

Carlos Castaneda (December 25, 1925 – April 27, 1998) was an American author. Starting with The Teachings of Don Juan in 1968, Castaneda wrote a series of books that purport to describe training in shamanism that he received under the tutelage of a supposed Yaqui "Man of Knowledge" named don Juan Matus. Doubts about the veracity of Castaneda's work existed from their original publication. There is now consensus that Castenda's books are works of fiction, and that it is unlikely that don Juan Matus existed.
