Perspective well explained

Authentic experience (these are recordings of seminars or lectures) with inspirational content and a sense of humour. Brill.

Eastern thought with a Western accent.

Alan Watts is a spiritual entertainer. If you are not enlightened and entertained by this audio book, I'm sure Audible can refund your misery.

watts at his best!

Alan Watts is insightful, intense and entertaining. He cuts through the tradition of zen and other mystical traditions and brings out the essence.

Indeed

This is some of Alan Watts more obscure lectures but nonetheless a collection of gems.
