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 book / lectures are great for those who are seeking Satori. Listen and see if you can find it or if you should seek it :)
Challenge your understanding of the world and just have fun :)
If you have been doing meditation for even a few weeks, this books as a must read to explain some of the "thoughts" so to speak that are whirling around in your mind as you get deeper into practice. So glad I found this one.
Watts is a brilliant and captivating teacher. I will defintely be listening to this again
A collection of beautiful talks by a man who is obviously enjoying what he does. Watts is a wonderful and amusing speaker. He weaves a tapestry of eastern philosophy, delightfully absurd logic, poignant observations and personal tales and experiences. I would highly recommend giving this a listen.
I'm so thankful that Alan Watts was around for audio recordings and that he made it a practice to get many sessions in. There are some repeated lines and rants in this series, as it is a complication of seminars, still totally worth the time to really cement the ideas and shake loose the paradigms.
Always a great many things that we see as one way and not the other, when in reality you can't have it one way with out the opposite as well.
Use the world as your mirror as you're it.
"Great listen, with amusing explanations"
Great to hear a full lecture by Alan Watts, best parts are his humerus explanations and break downs of everyday situations and functions that we are not completely aware of. I would definitely listen to this audio book again, An inspirational person who simplify's aspects of life we rarely seem concensus of.
