Alan Watts: How to Connect with Your Higher Self
For spiritual seekers of many generations, Alan Watts earned a reputation as one of the most accessible—and entertaining—interpreters of Eastern philosophy in the West. For this week’s Producer’s Pick, Sounds True producer Randy Roark offers a selection from You’re It!, a collection from the audio archives of Alan Watts. What Randy finds most refreshing about this material is that instead of trying to explain and direct our spiritual paths, Watts wants to dissolve our insistence on knowing who and what we are—leading us to a place of not-knowing. In this episode from You’re It!—a one-man “spiritual jam session” recorded before a live audience—the legendary “stand-up philosopher” deconstructs the goal of self-improvement.
