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.

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.

Profound and relaxing

I thought this was a great piece to introduce meditation to people and without the grave sense of purpose. It's a great introduction in the art of just being. Interesting work be I'll listen to more from watts.
