During the last decade of his life, Alan Watts lectured across the country on the relevance of Eastern thought to contemporary Western culture. Drawing from his numerous journals and audiotapes, his son Mark has compiled Still the Mind. Part One begins with "Out of This World," in which Watts shows that inner wisdom grows naturally. Part Two charts the path of soulful contemplation with "The Philosophy of Meditation." Part Three, "Contemplative Ritual," leads the reader into a variety of meditation practices.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
