Alan Wilson Watts
A prolific author and speaker.
Alan Watts was one of the first
to interpret Eastern wisdom
or a Western audience.
Born outside London in 1915,
he discovered the nearby Buddhist Lodge
at a young age.
After moving to the United States in 1938,
Alan became an Episcopal priest for a time,
and then relocated to Millbrook, New York,
In 1951 he moved to San Francisco
where he began teaching Buddhist studies,
and in 1956 began his popular radio show,
“Way Beyond the West.”
By the early sixties, Alan’s radio talks aired nationally
and the counterculture movement adopted him
as a spiritual spokesperson.
He wrote and traveled regularly until his passing in 1973.
There are so many videos
from his lectures online
so I decided to create some videos
from a few lectures and present them
with all credits to this awesome man and
