Sintesi dell'editore

Mark Watts compiled this work from his father's extensive journals and audiotapes of famous lectures he delivered, in his later years, across the country. In three parts Alan Watts explains the basic philosophy of meditation, how individuals can practice a variety of meditations, and how inner wisdom grows naturally.

Classic Alan Watts.

I am an avid Alan Watts reader and listener. Most of this I had never heard. I will listen again.

Alan Watts Forever.

Yet again, Mr. Watts brings an accessible and engaging method to his teachings, allowing them to be earth-shatteringly profound and at the same time, fun. Anyone looking to dip their toes into fundamental, introductory meditation teachings would do well to start here.

Essential instruction for new meditators

These are clips from lectures where Alan Watts discusses the philosophy and practice of object-less meditation. He makes it easy to grasp what meditating does and does not entail. Highly recommend for beginners looking to explore a practice.

Awake

Through riddles and self realization Alan Watts gets rid of your desire to worry. This new age way of showing the zen mindset through different sounds and new koan.

Alan Watts is a loveable, accessible genius

Would you listen to Still the Mind again? Why?

The value of this audio title rests in the fact that Watts himself is recorded. Charming, revealing and empathetic, Watts is a brilliant speaker and his approach to understanding meditation is singular.

What other book might you compare Still the Mind to and why?

Titles by Ram Dass

Which scene was your favorite?

Watts makes the wisdom of the Vedas accessible to a modern, Western audience.

Insightful.

Nothing can quite beat the subtle reminder that we are capable of relieving our minds when we let go. Much like muddy waters, most of our thoughts are clouded until we allow it to settle.

Alan W. Watts provides a unique way of explaining this kind of process. With a captivating voice and wise choosing of vocabulary he can show you much of what you've been missing this whole time.

One of the finest Alan Watts performances

This book really hits deep. Some key takeaways are:

-Intellectual Theologians side with God because he's the big boss in the sky, with the biggest battalions. What the hell are we supposed to do about that?

-Life is now. Right now. We are straining ourselves with a nervous, overwrought sense of self that is a misunderstanding of how we are supposed to actually be.

-the self is an illusion, thoughts that can only think about thinking are lost

-the quivering self is what we are deep down inside, and meditation brings understanding to assuage that self.

-our sense of identity doesn't take into account our hippocampus, or pineal gland, or our physical body at all

there's more gold in hear, great to hear.
another good one was that when we meditate we can observe thoughts just as if they were on the outside of ourselves. we are the watcher

nonsense

Don't even bother to buy this or waste the time to listen to it. Absolute nonsense. An hour of blathering on and humming by what comes across as someone who likes to hear himself talk while drinking and smoking cigars. He finds himself much more amusing and insightful than I did.

Beautifully fantastic

Another great collection of Alan Watts lectures.
I listen to him every night as his voice is so soothing. I set a sleep alarm and let him take me away.
