Description

The legendary author, speaker, and self-described "philosophical entertainer" Alan Watts delights us on audio with a wealth of illuminations into the spirit and art of meditation, spanning many traditions

"What would it be like to see all as one?" Alan Watts asks. "We hear about attaining great states of consciousness. But the only way to have a real transformation is to stop thinking about it - and simply experience it." 

From the 1950s to the 1970s, this seminal teacher sparked the West's love for Eastern wisdom. Now, in these rare recorded gems, he inspires a new generation of inner explorers seeking deeper insights into meditation - its myriad forms, how they work, and what happens when we practice them. 

On the "artless art" of contemplative practice, Watts explores Buddhist and yogic paths, Zen koans, Hindu mantra chanting, deep listening, effortless awareness, and more. 

The key to all meditation, reflects Watts, is to give up trying to do it - to leave it be - and allow ourselves to be meditated by what is beyond our illusory self. 

For those looking for teachings seldom explored in the current tide of books on mindfulness, Buddhism, and yoga, Watts is here to enthrall us - as original, humorous, and relevant today as ever. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The best

This collection is great! I have listened to many hours of this man’s talking and read much of his writing. As far as the available talks, seminars, classes, etc. go, this is a favorite. It is succinct and comprehensive and shows his great ability to inspire, enlighten, inform and entertain.

This is the same book as “you’re it”

This book is exactly the same as “you’re it”.
Literally somebody took the same audio and slapped a different name on the book.

Not specific to meditation

Just another collection of Alan Watts lectures. Not specific to meditation.
This was a disappointing purchase. I like Alan Watts and the lectures are interesting. However, this is not guide to starting or furthering a meditation practice. I was mislead by the chapter titles. They arbitrary to sell the book and not a representation of what topic is covered in the lecture for that chapter.
If you want a collection of lectures to further your curiosity into various areas Eastern philosophy, this is a good resource. But, that is not the topic that was represented by the seller.

Best Watts Book

Best overview of Eastern religion-based philosophies, possibly ever! Listened to each chapter several times to glean the big picture presented here. I own and have read and heard most of Watts' material for decades and this book actually made me want to go back and revisit them all. Well done.

This audio book comes with a PDF!!!

Alan Watts is great!! But, This book has a PDF that comes with it. Whoever publishes these books. PLEASE!! add PDF's to "Out of your mind" That is a lot of audio that isn't labeled. Other than that. I think everybody needs to listen to Watts.

Alan Watts and his genius are concentrated here

I started with “You’re It” and then “Out of Your Mind” and they are amazing and wonderful. I do not know if they primed me for “Leave It Be” but I almost feel like “Leave It Be” has all the best lessons, applicable Eastern teachings and information for a Westerner encapsulated and organized in a marvelous way. If I could only recommend one of these three, or have only one I could take onto a desert island, it would be “Leave It Be.”

Essential listening.

Alan Watts is an inspiration. We would do well to listen to his perspectives and slow down a touch.

Leave It Be is IT!

Leave It Be is the perfect compilation of Watts’ wisdom into the essence of the Spirit behind all religion. His gift of understanding is just immense, as is his ability to communicate. This recording (actually from several recordings) is a treasure. If you listened to only one, this is it.

Informative & Practical.

Alan Watts is always a win but his lectures and exercises revolutionized my private practice. Watts is not a priest but a guide inviting you to observe the path and tell him how you see it.
