Om: Creative Meditations

Alan Wilson Watts was a British philosopher, writer and speaker, who held both a Master’s in Theology and a Doctorate of Divinity. Famous for his research on comparative religion, he was best known as an interpreter and popularizer of Asian philosophies for a Western audience. He wrote over 25 books and numerous articles on subjects such as personal identity, the true nature of reality, higher consciousness, the meaning of life, concepts and images of God and the non-material pursuit of happiness. In his books he relates his experience to scientific knowledge and to the teachings of Eastern and Western religion and philosophy.

Although presented in book form, Om: Creative Meditations is actually transcribed speeches from Alan Watts rather than his usual direct writing. The book was released after his death by son Mark Watts and perfectly captures his father’s wisdom and wit.

“Each chapter coming from a different speech, Watts deconstructs our ideas of identity, conscious and sub-conscious, the perspective of other and self, and much more metaphysical goodness. Drawing from both ancient wisdom and modern thought Watts is able to reference 2,000 year old Chinese texts as well as modern art and futuristic science to illustrate his points.” – JD, Like Mind
