In his teachings, Alan Watts uses words to take us beyond them. He instills in listeners not only an understanding of meditation, but an experience of it as well. Watts first became famous as an intellectual and then as a serious student of Buddhism and meditation. Still the Mind consists of several talks he gave in his later years, recorded and edited by his son, Mark Watts. His speaking shows a maturity and wisdom that can only come after years of meditation, and his words are still as visionary today as when they were first spoken. Whether you are experienced in meditation or just beginning, Still the Mind is an invaluable guide. It takes you on a wonderful journey that shows you the great miracle of who you really are.

This recording is of an introductory meditation lecture Watts gave during his years as a public speaker. As with anything Watts produced in this sort of setting, his discussion is filled with his personal brand of intelligence, wit and enthusiasm. Although this title is short, you will nevertheless get a good lesson that traces the history of meditation and you'll soon realize why practicing it daily is valuable. As an added bonus, Watts gives an example of how he meditates himself. It would have been nice to be there while this title was being recorded. Watts is one of my favorite people ever, so you could do worse than picking up anything he has on audio.
