Publisher's Summary

Alan Watts became famous first as a brilliant intellectual and then as a serious student of Buddhism and meditation. In the 1970s, the last years of his life, he retreated to a small, isolated cabin deep in the woods. He meditated every morning and then wrote. Still the Mind consists of several talks he gave in his later years, recorded and edited by his son, Mark Watts, and then published as a book. His speaking shows a maturity and wisdom that can only come after years of meditation, and his teachings are still as visionary today as when they were first spoken.

In his teachings, Alan Watts uses words to take us beyond them. He instills in listeners not only an understanding of meditation but an experience of it as well. Whether you have been meditating for years or are just beginning, Still the Mind will deepen your practice. It takes you on a journey that shows you the great miracle of who you really are.

What the Critics Say

2000 Winner Listen Up Award: Religion/Spirituality
"Watts' lighthearted delivery is as interesting as his message. He often breaks into spontaneous laughter, and the listener can tell that his audience is friendly and enthralled." (Publishers Weekly)

    Overall
    "Very little content, so not worth price."

    Very little actual content. First 40mns nothing to do with meditation per se. Second 40mns very little coverage of meditation. A lot of pauses, a lot of background noises. Regret the price of admission.
