The Bizarre Life of Alan Watts

Alan Watts, born in England and living most of his life in the United States, was a writer, speaker & philosopher. Watts was best known for making Japanese, Chinese, & Indian spiritual traditions in the form of Buddhism, Taoism, and Hinduism entertainingly accessible to a wide and popular audience throughout the world. Alan Watts also played a pivotal & central role in the spiritual revolution that shook the religious status quo of the United States during the 1960s. This change in the religious consciousness of the US brought to the American public ancient teachings from Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, Esoteric Christianity and other mystical religious traditions. This spiritual revolution changed the United States in ways that are still felt today. Yoga, meditation, vegetarian diets, chanting, nonviolent protests, therapies of all kinds, feminism, equal rights, herbal & alternative medicines & treatments, and much much more, were all first introduced to Americans in the 1960s and were products of the spiritual revolution. For many spiritual seekers in the United States & other parts of the Western World, Alan Watts was their trusted guide through this incredible spiritual change. Watts introduced people to spiritual and religious practices which would help to improve and intensify the lives of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people. And, Watts treated these unfamiliar and sometimes extremely unfamiliar religious traditions, paths, & practices in a very readable and accessible writing style.
