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.
Carefully selected from hundreds of recordings by Alan Watts' son and archivist, Mark Watts, Out of Your Mind brings you six complete seminars that capture the true scope of this brilliant teacher in action. On these superb, digitally restored recordings, you will delve into Alan Watts' favorite pathways out of the trap of conventional awareness, including:
- The art of the controlled accident—what happens when you stop taking your life so seriously and start enjoying it with complete sincerity
- How we come to believe the myth of myself that we are skin-encapsulated egos separate from the world around us, and how to transcend that illusion
- Why we must fully embrace chaos and the void to find our deepest purpose
- Unconventional and refreshing insights into the deeper principles of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Western philosophy, plus much, much more
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.

Gently mind-blowing Review by Al
Enjoying listening to 'Out of your mind,' an incisive and darkly humorous look at how we can break out of our conditioned human existence and see things as they truly are. Best thing I've heard in several years! (Posted on July 28, 2016)

Review for Out of Your Mind Review by Andrew Young
Eckhart Tolle meets John Eddie Izzard! No wait, that does not convey how brilliant, profound, and funny Alan Watts is on audio. I first tried to read "This Is It" when I was in high school and it made no sense whatsoever. Then I heard one of his talks ("The World as just So" which is in this audio set) and my entire sense of reality (and humor) has never been the same. Alan Watts is to Eckhart Tolle what Billie Holiday is to Madeline Peyroux (if you get that analogy you must be one serious public radio geek). - AY (Posted on March 4, 2009)
