In the next installment, The Second Ring of Power, published in , he becomes a full-fledged sorcerer. To be clear, the "first ring" was Castaneda's specialty when he was first recruited by the Yaqui sorcerer Don Juan in attention to the body, the realm of reason, that part of a person engaged early in life.

Most people believe that it is all there is. The "second ring" is quite different, however, as Don Juan continually tried to explain during Castaneda's apprenticeship.

It is the capacity to place your awareness on the non-ordinary world, that realm of will Yaquis call the Naqual. In the fifth chapter of his epic adventure, Castaneda is no long either an apprentice or a "rational" anthropologist. He is making progress on the path of the warrior. The book begins with some unfinished business. Castaneda is still unraveling his last meeting with Don Juan, Don Genaro and his fellow apprentices. It ended with his jump off a cliff and seeing his own body disintegrate.

He couldn't rationally believe that it happened, so he has returned to central Mexico to resolve his conflicts. But his greeting by Pablito's mother, Dona Soledad, just raises new issues.

How has she become so much younger - and more attractive? Why would she want to kill him? And could Don Juan have planned it? Fortunately, the old Yaqui's teachings have taken hold and Carlos is able to resist an initial assault. Once he has defeated Dona Soledad in psychic battle, the Sisters show up. They too have been trained by Don Juan, and were told by him to view Carlos as his replacement. They aren't impressed at first.
