Description

In order to come to your senses, Alan Watts often said, you sometimes need to go out of your mind. Perhaps more than any other teacher in the West, this celebrated author, former Anglican priest, and self-described spiritual entertainer was responsible for igniting the passion of countless wisdom seekers to the spiritual and philosophical delights of Asia and India.

Now, with Out of Your Mind: Essential Listening from the Alan Watts Audio Archives, you are invited to immerse yourself in 12 of this legendary thinker's pinnacle teaching sessions about how to break through the limits of the rational mind and begin expanding your awareness and appreciation for the Great Game unfolding all around us.

Whether you're completely new to Alan Watts or familiar with his work, here is a rare opportunity to experience him at his best, improvising brilliantly before a live audience on Out of Your Mind: Essential Listening from the Alan Watts Audio Archives.

Great series of conferences

Hearing Alan Watts has been a wonderful, mind blowing, challenging spiritual experience. This is better than a book since you can hear him speak and laugh. I’ve listened to it 3 times already. I do not get tired of it. But you have to be ready to challenge yourself, your beliefs and your thinking. Enjoy!

Brilliant. & Terrific to be able to listen rather than read!

Wonderful to have the chance to not only receive the wisdom of this brilliant man, but to also actually hear the material as the original talk (& not read by a narrator). Thank you to everyone that made this possible. Fascinating material, perfect format.

Another great book

This book is as amazing as other Alan Watts books. However, if you already purchased "You're it" then this book is very very similar with identical talks.

Be careful before buying

If you could sum up Out of Your Mind in three words, what would they be?

Great but watchout

Any additional comments?

Be careful when buying this audio book or any audio book being packaged with Alan Watts lectures because it seems they fill these audiobooks with the same lectures so if you buy two different books you might actually be buying the same thing twice. Unfortunately there is no way to figure this out ahead of time

One of the Best

This collection of original speeches by Alan Watts is amazing. It very detailed and very entertaining. Alan Watts has a way of taking serious ideas and explaining them in a humorous way. If you like philosophy, get this book.

Cause if you let your breath go... it'll come back

These lectures are great for anyone with an open mind, from the merely curious to those seeking satori. A self proclaimed "spiritual entertainer," Alan Watts takes various concepts from eastern religions and translates them for a western audience, providing both entertainment and insight along the way. If you ever need a new perspective on the human condition try giving Alan Watts a listen.

This man passed over a decade before I was born, but his voice gives me comfort and his words bring me peace. He's helped me through some tough times, and I return to his lectures, or his writings, from time to time when I need a refresher.

"So, translated into colloquial American, nirvana is 'whew.' 'Cause if you let your breath go... it'll come back."

A must for fans Alan Watts

Fourteen hours of wisdom from the legendary Alan Watts. I own all of the other lecture series by Watts that are available on Audible and I did not hear any repeated material from those. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute, the sound quality is excellent given the age of some of the recordings. This is a great introduction to Zen and Eastern philosophy in general. I can't recommend this highly enough, if you are a fan or just getting into this wonderful, entertaining philosopher you will not be disappointed!

Zen Buddhismus für westliche Menschen erklärt

Alan Watts war Religionsphilosoph, früherer Priester, der sich in diesen Lektionen mit den Weltbildern der westlichen Welt und der fernöstlichen Welt (China, Indien usw.) auseinandersetzt. Dies hilft, einerseits die monotheistischen Religionen zu verstehen, andererseits erklärt Watts auch das Phänomen der Moderne, den Atheismus.
In diesen Lektionen versucht Watts über diese beiden so gegensätzlichen Anschauungen hinauszuwachsen, was ihm meiner Meinung nach mit dem Zen Buddhismus sehr gut gelingt. Eine der wichtigsten Aussagen, die auch zu spiritueller Erleuchtung führen kann ist, dass das Ich kein individuelles Wesen ist, sondern wir alle, Menschen, Tiere, Pflanzen, aber auch Steine usw. ein kleiner Teil des großen Ganzen sind. Nur eben in unserm Fall in der Form eines Menschen. Wir sind nicht einfach in diese Welt gesetzt worden, wir sind aus ihr erstanden, wir sind die Schöpfung, wir sind der Urknall. Wer dieser Kenntnis folgt, ist Watts zufolge erleuchtet. Das Thema Tod nimm in den Lektionen ebenfalls einen großen Teil ein, wobei ich sagen muss, dass sich viele Aussagen von Watts immer wieder wiederholen, allerdings anhand von unterschiedlichen Beispielen. Zusammengefasst: Es kann kein Sein geben, ohne das Nicht-Sein. Gleichzeitig ist das Nicht-Sein nicht nichts. Hört es euch an!

Thank you!

Alan Watts probably changed my thinking more than all other philosophers combined. Everyone ought to listen to this.

Out of this world!

A phenomenal set of lectures by the late, Alan Watts. He is not only teaching one to look at him or herself, and the world in a different light, but is also very entertaining and amusing at the same time. What he says is as important now, if not more so, than it was when these recordings were made. Highly recommended for anyone who has enjoyed he likes of thich naht Hahn or Eckhart Tolle.

Erleuchtend!

Alan Watts erklärt in seinen Vorlesungen einfach und anschaulich seine Interpretation östlicher Philosophie, Mystik und Ontologie. Schwerpunkt ist dabei der Zen-Buddhismus.
Wie bei jeder echten Kunst, erscheint auch hier alles leicht und unaufgeregt.

Eine Woche mit Watts

Aus dem Hören vorm Einschlafen wurde ein Hören des Rythmus in der Stille, zwischen den Dingen enthüllte sich die Leere. Gratulatiere, du wirst sterben!
