The Nagual Woman


The Internal Dialogue

One of Carlos Castaneda’s greatest lessons and most elementary principals was stopping the internal dialogue. This expression of consciousness was repeated by Don Juan – almost on a daily level – in Carlos’ apprenticeship.

For those of us who delve into the practice of consciousness – in any form – we see the power of disengaging from the voices and conversations we have with ourselves, and achieving a point of pure silence.

True listening.  True openness.  True preparedness, for what is yet to come: as a manifestation of the perfect union of intent and destiny.


There I stand, looking, looking, breathlessly...

“For me there is only the travelling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.”

~Don Juan Matus, the mentor, teacher, ‘Nagual’ of Carlos Castaneda
