Hi Everyone,

My apologies for closing this exercise the way I did.

I thought that everyone had finished & wanted to move on to the next exercise.

Apparently I was mistaken.

The person in these photos is Carlos Castaneda.

Here is his bio & his Tensegrity website link.

https://www.cleargreen.com/

Carlos Castaneda(December 25 1925 April 27 1998]) was an American author with aPh.D.inanthropology.

Starting withThe Teachings of Don Juanin 1968, Castaneda wrote a series of books that describe his training inshamanism, particularly a group that he called theToltecs. The books, narrated in thefirst person, relate his experiences under the tutelage of aYaqui"Man of Knowledge" namedDonJuan Matus. His 12 books have sold more than 28 million copies in 17 languages. Critics have suggested that they are works of fiction; supporters claim the books are either true or at least valuable works of philosophy and descriptions of practices which enable an increased awareness.

Castaneda withdrew from public view in 1973 to work further on his inner development, living in a large house with three women whom he called "Fellow Travellers of Awareness", and who were ready to cut their ties to family and changed their names. He foundedCleargreen, an organization that promotedtensegrity, purportedly a traditional Toltec regimen of spiritually powerful exercises.

Early life

Castaneda moved to the United States in the early 1950s and became anaturalized citizenin 1957. He was educated atUCLA(B.A. 1962; Ph.D. 1973).Castaneda married Margaret Runyan in Mexico in 1960, according to Runyan's memoirs.Castaneda is listed on the birth certificate of Runyan's son C.J. Castaneda as his father even though his biological father was a different man.

It is unclear whether Carlos and Margaret were divorced in 1960, 1973, or not at all, and his death certificate even stated he had never been married.

Career

Castaneda's first three books The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge;A Separate Reality; andJourney to Ixtlan were written while he was ananthropologystudent at theUniversity of California, Los Angeles(UCLA). He wrote these books as his research log describing his apprenticeship with a traditional "Man of Knowledge" identified asdon Juan Matus, aYaquiIndian from northern Mexico. Castaneda was awarded hisbachelor'sanddoctoral degreesbased on the work described in these books.

In 1974 his fourth book,Tales of Power, was published and chronicled the end of his apprenticeship under the tutelage of Matus. Castaneda continued to be popular with the reading public with subsequent publications.

In his books, Castaneda narrates in first person the events leading to his 1960 introduction to Matus, a half-Yaqui "Man of Knowledge", and his subsequent experiences with him. He also says the sorcerer bequeathed him the position ofnagual, or leader of a party of seers. Matus also used the termnagualto signify that part of perception which is in the realm of the unknown yet still reachable by man, implying that, for his party of seers, Don Juan was a connection in some way to that unknown. Castaneda often referred to this unknown realm as nonordinary reality.

The termnagualhas been used by anthropologists to mean a shaman or sorcerer who claims to be able to change into an animal form, or to metaphorically "shift" into another form through magic rituals,shamanismand experiences with psychoactive drugs (e.g.,peyoteand jimson weed Datura stramonium).

Castaneda was the subject of a cover article in the March 5, 1973 issue ofTimewhich described him as "an enigma wrapped in a mystery". When confronted by correspondent Sandra Burton about discrepancies in his personal history, Castaneda responded:

"To ask me to verify my life by giving you my statistics... is like using science to validate sorcery. It robs the world of its magic and makes milestones out of us all."

The interviewer wrote:

"Castaneda makes the reader experience the pressure of mysterious winds and the shiver of leaves at twilight, the hunter's peculiar alertness to sound and smell, the rock-bottom scrubbiness ofIndianlife, the raw fragrance oftequilaand the vile, fibrous taste ofpeyote, the dust in the car, and the loft of a crow's flight. It is a superbly concrete setting, dense withanimisticmeaning. This is just as well, in view of the utter weirdness of the events that happen in it."

Following that interview, Castaneda retired from public view.

In the 1990s, Castaneda once again began appearing in public to promoteTensegrity, a group of movements that he claimed had been passed down by 25 generations of Toltec shamans. On 16 June 1995, articles of incorporation executed by George Short were filed to createCleargreen Incorporated. The Cleargreen statement of purpose says in part:

"Cleargreen is a corporation that has a twofold purpose. First, it sponsors and organizes seminars and workshops on Carlos Castaneda's Tensegrity, and second, it is a publishing house."

Cleargreen published three videos of Tensegrity movements while Castaneda was alive. Castaneda himself did not appear in the videos.

Death

Castaneda died on April 27, 1998 in Los Angeles due to complications fromhepatocellular cancer. There was no public service; Castaneda was cremated and the ashes were sent to Mexico. His death was unknown to the outside world until nearly two months later, on 19 June 1998, when an obituary entitled "A Hushed Death for Mystic Author Carlos Castaneda" by staff writerJ. R. Moehringerappeared in theLos Angeles Times.

Upon his death,The New York Timesreferred to Castaneda's "dubious biography and shaman-like tales" that "few academics regard [as] serious scholarship."

Four months after Castaneda's death, C. J. Castaneda, also known as Adrian Vashon, whose birth certificate shows Carlos Castaneda as his father, challenged Castaneda's will in probate court. Carlos' death certificate states metabolic encephalopathy for 72 hours prior to his death, yet the will was supposedly signed 48 hours before Castaneda's death.[not in citation given]C.J. challenged its authenticity. The challenge was ultimately unsuccessful.

Castaneda's companions

After Castaneda stepped away from public view in 1973, he bought a large house in Los Angeles which he shared with some of his female companions. The women broke off relationships with friends and family when they joined Castaneda's group. They also refused to be photographed and took new names: Regina Thal becameFlorinda Donner-Grau, Maryann Simko becameTaisha Abelarand Kathleen Pohlman became Carol Tiggs. Another disciple, Patricia Partin, was renamed Blue Scout by Castaneda.

Shortly after Castaneda died in April of 1998, his companions Donner-Grau, Abelar and Patricia Partin disappeared.Amalia Marquez(also known as Talia Bey) and Tensegrity instructor Kylie Lundahl had their phones disconnected and also disappeared. Weeks later, Partins red Ford Escort was found abandoned in Death Valley.

Because the women in question had cut all ties with family and friends, it was some time before people noticed they were missing. There has been no official investigation into the disappearances of Donner-Grau, Simko and Lundahl. Luis Marquez, the brother of Talia Bey, went to police in 1999 over his sister's disappearance, but was unable to convince them that it merited investigation.

In 2006, Partin's sun-bleached skeleton was discovered by a pair of hikers in Death Valley's Panamint Dunes area and was identified by DNA testing. The investigating authorities ruled Partin's death as undetermined.

On August 2, 1998, Carol Tiggs spoke at a workshop inOntario, Canada. Since that time, she also has disappeared.

Reception

Despite the widespread popularity of his works, some critics questioned the validity of Castaneda's books as early as 1969. In a series of articles,R. Gordon Wasson, who had made psychoactive mushrooms famous, and had originally praised Castaneda's work, questioned the accuracies of Castaneda's botanical claims.

In 1976, author and ScientologistRichard de MillepublishedCastaneda's Journey: The Power and the Allegory, in which he argued, "Logical or chronological errors in the narrative constitute the best evidence that Castaneda's books are works of fiction. If no one has discovered these errors before, the reason must be that no one has listed the events of the first three books in sequence. Once that has been done, the errors are unmistakable."On these showings de Mille asserts,The Teachings of Don JuanandJourney to Ixtlan(his third book) cannot both be factual reports.

For his part, Castaneda in the introduction toA Separate Reality, his second book, addressed the incomprehensible nature of his experiences as only being able to be understood in the context of the alien system of perception from which they arose, suggesting that his books are by their very nature contradictory and incomprehensible (as to time and place especially) to academic and critical inquiry.

In a 1968 radio interviewwith Theodore Roszak, Castaneda, while confirming that his mystical experiences were absolutely true to life, did explain that he took some chronological license in his writing about actual events: "The way the books present it seems to heighten some dramatic sequences, which is, I'm afraid, not true to real life. There are enormous gaps in between in which ordinary things took place, that are not included. I didn't include in the book because they did not pertain to the system I wanted to portray, so I just simply took them away, you see. And that means that the gaps between those very heightened states, you know, whatever, says that I remove things that are continuous crescendos, in kind of sequence leading to a very dramatic solution. But in real life it was a very simple matter because it took years between, months pass in between them, and in the meantime we did all kinds of things. We even went hunting. He (Don Juan) told me how to trap things, set traps, very old, old ways of setting a trap, and how to catch rattlesnakes. He told me how to prepare rattlesnakes, in fact. And so that eases up, you see, the distrust or the fear."

At first, and with the backing of academic qualifications and theUCLAanthropological department, Castaneda's work was critically acclaimed. Notable anthropologists like Edward Spicer (1969) andEdmund Leach(1969)praised Castaneda, alongside more alternative and young anthropologists.

The authenticity of Don Juan was accepted for six years, untilRichard de Milleand Daniel Noel both published their critiques of the Don Juan books in 1976. Later anthropologists specializing in Yaqui Indian culture (William Curry Holden, Jane Holden Kelley and Edward H. Spicer), who originally supported Castaneda's account as true, questioned the accuracies of Castaneda's work.Other criticisms of Castaneda's work include the total lack of Yaqui vocabulary or terms for any of his experiences, and his refusal to defend himself against the accusation that he received his PhD from UCLA through deception.

Others[who?](including Dr. Clement Meighan) point out that the books largely, and for the most part, do not describe Yaqui culture at all with its emphasis on Catholic upbringing and conflict with the Federal State of Mexico, but rather focus on the international movements and life of Don Juan who was described in the books as traveling and having many connections, and abodes, in the Southwestern United States (Arizona), Northern Mexico, and Oaxaca. Don Juan was described in the books as a shaman steeped in a mostly lost Toltec philosophy and decidedly anti-Catholic. Dr. Clement Meighan, one of Castaneda's professors at UCLA, and an acknowledged expert on Indian culture in the U.S., Mexico, and other areas in North America, up to his death, never doubted that Castaneda's work was based upon authentic contact with and observations of Indians. Later, Miguel Ruiz also verified the existence of Indian "Brujos" in Mexico with native teachings much like Don Juan's.

A March 5, 1973Timearticle by Sandra Burton, looking at both sides of the controversy, stated:

...the more worldly claim to importance of Castaneda's books: to wit, that they are anthropology, a specific and truthful account of an aspect of Mexican Indian culture as shown by the speech and actions of one person, a shaman named Juan Matus. That proof hinges on the credibility of Don Juan as a being and Carlos Castaneda as a witness. Yet there is no corroboration beyond Castaneda's writings that Don Juan did what he is said to have done, and very little that he exists at all.

A strong case can be made that the Don Juan books are of a different order of truthfulness from Castaneda's pre-Don Juan past. Where, for example, was the motive for an elaborate scholarly put-on?The Teachingswere submitted to a university press, an unlikely prospect for best-sellerdom. Besides, getting an anthropology degree from U.C.L.A. is not so difficult that a candidate would employ so vast a confabulation just to avoid research. A little fudging perhaps, but not a whole system in the manner of The Teachings, written by an unknown student with, at the outset, no hope of commercial success.

David Silverman sees value in the work even while considering it fictional. InReading Castanedahe describes the apparent deception as a critique of anthropology field work in general a field that relies heavily on personal experience, and necessarily views other cultures through a lens. According to Silverman, not only the descriptions ofpeyotetrips but also the fictional nature of the work are meant to place doubt on other works of anthropology.

Donald Wieve cites Castaneda to explain theinsider/outsider problemas it relates to mystical experiences, while acknowledging the fictional nature of his work.

Related authors

Two other authors, Taisha Abelar and Florinda Donner-Grau, wrote books in which they claimed to be from Matus' party of Toltecwarriors. Both Abelar and Donner-Grau were endorsed by Castaneda as being legitimate students of Matus, whereas he dismissed all other writers as pretenders. The two women were part of Castaneda's inner circle, which he referred to as "TheBrujas," and both assumed different names as part of their dedication to their new beliefs. They were originally both graduate students in anthropology at UCLA.

Felix Wolf, one of Carlos Castaneda's apprentices and translators, wroteThe Art of Navigation: Travels with Carlos Castaneda and Beyond. In his book Wolf details how his life had been transformed by his association with Castaneda. While touching on all aspects of the teachings, Wolf highlights what he perceives to be the overriding and essential transmission that came through Castaneda's work:The Art of Navigation.

Amy WallacewroteSorcerer's Apprentice: My Life with Carlos Castaneda,an account of her personal experiences with Castaneda and his followers.

InCarlos Castaneda e a Fenda entre os Mundos Vislumbres da Filosofia nahuacah no Sculo XXIBrazilian writer Luis Carlos de Morais analyzes the work of Carlos Castaneda, its cultural implications, and its continuation in other authors.

Sanchez's first book,The Teachings of Don Carlos: Practical Applications of the Works of Carlos Castaneda(1995), provides in-depth techniques and commentary on a path of "self-growth" based on the wisdom of the Toltec descendants. His approach in this book is bringing the proposals of Castaneda down to the earth focusing on those parts of Castaneda's book that can be applied in everyday life and used for personal development. Sanchez has published three further books:Toltecs of the New Millennium(1996), providing an overview of and background on the author's experiences with theWirrarika;The Toltec Path of Recapitulation: Healing Your Past to Free Your Soul(2001); andThe Toltec Oracle(2004). Sanchez's recapitulation technique bears some resemblance to Sandra Ingerman's soul retrieval technique, but is probably the most comprehensive approach to the subject that has been published so far. Other shamanic teachers using similar techniques include Michael Harner, PhD founder of "core shamanism", and Ken Page, founder of Heart and Soul Healing. Some have associated Sanchez's work with Toltec authorDon Miguel Ruiz, author ofThe Four Agreements.

Have a phenomenal weekend <3

Thanks for posting one, N.A. Happy 4th.

Genius.

Doctor.

Mixed racial ancestry caused him some troubles. Parents well off from hard work.

Confident in his abilities.

Seems reserved and rigid, but is not on the inside.

May have discovered something in Pediatrics.

I see him working with polio or other problem that causes difficulty in walking in children.

Vitamin deficiency disease.

Snappish if interrupted when working or reading, but loved to play with kids.

Intellectual, free thinker, stubborn as hell and I'm right and you are all wrong. This guy knew what he wanted but his peers just refused to see it his way. He tried to move it forward and raise the bar but was partially successful. What he did affected lots of people. Sorry don't do names just situations. Thank you for posting this guy. Interesting as can be. Cat, you having fun?

Paul,

Yes I'm having fun, thanks, I like this guy a lot, even though I think he might piss me off in person, unless I agreed with him 100%, like you said.

I'm only 1/4 through with what I'm calling the monstrous month of 8 useless doctors (GACK, I hate conventional medicine) and need all the diversions I can get.

Hubby is working today; no rest for the wicked. Thanking God for my white noise machine so I can get some sleep tonight. Hope you're having a good holiday.

Back to our PHOTO:

Think he is married. Affectionate towards the wife, but patronizingly misogynistic and sees her more as a means to an ends, ie. his children. I get several, maybe 3 boys and a girl. The girl is adorable, with long dark curls and dimples.

I am wondering about Equus's reference to the Swedes. I am getting that both of his parents are from India, yet he looks half white to me.....curious. He also does not look Indian, so not sure why I'm picking that up. Maybe some hanky panky somewhere? (interesting aside: I read that a DNA study done in Australia showed that appx. 30% of kids there are being raised by men who do not know they are not their kids real dads! Probably just as true everywhere....Prince Harry anyone?)

I am hearing "grant money". Maybe sharing grant money for a joint project with the Swedes and wanting it all done his way. That would combine what everyone else has said so far.

He has the eyebrows of someone who is very low in thyroid hormone, but I feel he is very healthy and energetic, with no patience for those who want to work 9-5 and quit for the day, but do not bother him when he's reading his newspaper or he'll bite your head off. He feels it's important to be well informed. Politics may have had something to do with whether he got the funds he wanted or not, and this is why he followed the news closely.

Late 1930's clothing? (wish SnakeMedicine would clock in; she's such an expert on the fashions).

C.Cat,

You pick up a lot!!!! What you are hearing about "grant money" is kind of the impression I got after hearing that...Just now, I looked at the picture and started to see his aura, I think: first I saw some very light lavender, some whitish silver(not sure what that means), then I started seeing very light teal and lighter greenish-yellow, which makes me think he is definitely a healer of some kind and I'm not sure what else....

Just a side note: I had a psychic reading done yesterday and, while the woman did very well (mostly accurate), I don't think she would have been as sharp as you are at reading this gentleman:)

I'm sorry that you are dealing with the Hell that is Western Medicine:( Have you heard any good doctor's jokes lately? If not, I'll pm you some:)

Hi Equus,

I have no idea how accurate what I picked up is; could be all wrong. Still fun to try and encouraging to know you also feel grant money may be involved.

Yesterday I got a cartoon from someone that was a bunch of doctors on strike holding protest signs. Of course, the writing on the signs was totally illegible and nobody knew what they were protesting, lol. All doctor jokes are welcome. I am thinking of getting a dart board to decorate with their names and taking out my frustrations on it. I wish I could still afford the Integrative doc. She was incredible and I got spoiled.

Glad your reading went well. Aryi got permission for us to read each others pics in this group. I hope we start that soon. I would love a reading with ideas on how to heal myself, because these docs sure can't.

Back to our subject, his aura sounds beautiful. I can't see auras at all; wish I could. Do you feel he is an unconventional healer rather than a regular doc like I picked up? Maybe a homeopath? I can't remember the time period when Rockefeller set out to destroy homeopathy despite using it exclusively himself, so he could sell his patented poisons unopposed and get rich, but I think it may have been around that time. Anyone know? I'll try to find out.....

Wrong time period unless he was involved with Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia,the only homeopathic hospital still open after 1920, according to Wikipedia. It closed around 1940. Of course, I could be all wrong about the time period of his clothing, so all bets are off.

C.Cat,

I'm not sure yet what kind of healer I think that he is. I will have to try to tune in more.

I forgot to mention yesterday that I also saw a little bit of magenta in his aura, too!

His style of glasses remind me of the glasses that you see in President Woodrow Wilson's pictures (circa WWI maybe?) I think that he also has hazel eyes that tend to get a little dark and deep when he gets angry or jealous or feels threatened - not in a really dark way, just as someone who may feel flustered a little too easily some times because he may be a little insecure about some aspects of himself.

I am not really 100% sure yet, but I think that I am picking up kind of a prickly, aloof, maybe arrogant energy off of him.....

Paul,

I think that you are right in that he has that defensive everyone is wrong, I'm right mentality with some arrogance.

Hi CC,

Some have considered him a Genius.

He was a doctor as in he had a PhD, but he worked medically too.

He was quite confident in his abilities & some thought that he acted standoffish & rigid at times but for the most part he was a disciplined & friendly person.

I'm not sure if his mixed ancestry caused him difficulty but he was from a mixed ethnic heritage.

To my knowledge he didn't work with polio, etc. though he did devote a great portion of his time to alternative healing methods.

Hi CC,

He was married, I believe he had one son.

The women & girls you are seeing may be his followers (it is said that he had women who had cut off all ties to their family, friends, etc. & moved in with him.)

I won't say anything else about how much I've admired his work, so others can keep working it out.

I could be waaay off, but I am really stumped by this guy! I googled some leads as to what type of person/who he specifically might be and did not find anyone, and then the idea of "psychic surgery" popped into my head, along with the strong feeling that he is from somewhere in South America, like Brazil or Argentina.

Again, I am not really sure if this information is correct, but I am thinking that he performed psychic surgeries that made him famous-maybe he successfully removed cancerous tumors?!

Usually They are left open and not closed after the reveal. Sometimes there is more that can be learned. I still feel we are dealing with multiple personalities here as I felt that this guy carlos castaneda, feels like a group entity to me. Never heard of the guy and do not feel the need to know more. There is a really weird/bizarre feeling/vibe coming from this group. I get a con-job of sorts. Of course, some like him, I don't. Now I still do not understand what it is he's supposed to have done. The first pic seems like from the 20s but the later ones for the 60s and 70s. It just does not make any sense. BTW who is this vincent exposito and howard anton? I must ask whose pictures did we see? Great disconnect here. I am really really confused here. Weird as hell but interesting. You know, I get a similar feeling like I get from Al Bielek of the montauk project with time travel.

Paul,

Those other names are the photographers who took the pictures.

As far as Castenada, I must surmise you were not a "hippie" or you would have read all of his books and discussed them endlessly like everyone I know did. READ THEM. He was a professor and shaman. The book about Don Juan alone is more than worth the price of admission. You can find plenty about him on Google.

He did a lot of psychoactive drugs to come up with his insights, mostly peyote, before anyone heard about LSD. A lot like the people doing Ahuyausca (sp.?) now. Maybe this split his entity somehow and you picked that up.

Al Bielek is questionable, IMO, and if you get that feeling about this man honor it. But I'll bet you got that feeling about Bielekafterreading what he had to say, so give Castenada a chance, please. His account of the spiritual journey and the questioning involved therein is mind expanding to the nth degree.

It was fairly recently we decided to keep threads open after someone solved it. The original rule was it was closed as soon as someone got it right. The group leader here never shows up, so we made a collective decision we wanted to change the policy, but others might not know and therefore cannot be blamed for not knowing, though it would be nice to have a reveal post for those who don't know who he is. I am guessing younger people don't know, and you must be younger than I thought.

Can we let Aryi do the next one now?

Hi Paul,

The pictures of when he was younger were taken probably in the 30's or 40's since he was born in 1925.

He died in 1998 so the remaining pictures where taken during his lifetime.

As for the names attached to the pictures or the captions attached to the pictures (Example : with a child) I can only speculate that the names were the photographers & the captions were what were used to categorize, etc.

I actually like his body of work a lot & thought that he would be a good candidate for this exercise.

As for closing the exercise, I had wrongly assumed that since Aryi had posted twice about wanting to post the next challenge & wanting to know if this challenge was over that maybe I should close it so she could post the next challenge/exercise.

For that I have already apologized.

All of the pictures you see here are of CarlosCastaneda.

Have a wonderful day <3

When I post a subject I start with early life pics and move on to the later ones. also rename the pictures so there is no clue available. But with this guy, it seemed to me that it was different people I was looking at. Maybe its what he did with drugs and some entities came in and he was a subject of a walk in. Even when I searched for his picture I could not get a definitive answer and all these other names kept popping up. When You closed it I thought this Castaneda had one of the moderators close it. And that would suggest he was alive. I could not post just message and I did to Cat. This has for me been the weirdest experiment ever and we have had some doosies... Well Aryi, do your best now. I think I'll go after you.
