Life is the ultimate game of hide and seek... and the good news is that you're it! With the combination of playful irreverence and penetrating insight that made him a legend in Western philosophy, Alan Watts investigates the surprisingly liberating concept of "the universe as play" found at the heart of Hinduism, Zen, and other wisdom traditions.
Carefully selected by his son and archivist Mark Watts, You're It: On Hiding, Seeking, and Being Found features more than 10 hours of newly restored historic talks from the "spiritual entertainer" who helped define Eastern thought to audiences in the West. Here is a rare chance for listeners to experience the enduring brilliance of one of the greatest spiritual voices of the 20th century.

The most cut and dry education of sense of the self I have heard so far. Alan has a pragmatism about his speech that makes black and white seem beautiful. Good stuff!
Definitely an interesting series of lectures. Interesting material on the history of eastern religions and philosophies. Alan watts manages to present these in an accessible way with a lot of humor, making it understandable for everyone. Although you might not agree to all his interpretations, the lectures guarantee an interesting points of view to think about.
Alan Watts collection of lectures should be mandatory listening for anyone who has struggled with the backwords view in which we see the world today. As separate when we are intrinsically linked to our environment. Great translation of Buddhist and Hindu concepts to be digested by the western world of today. Can listen to these several times, learning new concepts each listen.
