(The Spiritual Library) Alan Watts explains how is it that through mistakes is that we learn from life. 

A prolific author and speaker, Alan Watts was one of the first to interpret Eastern wisdom for 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, where he wrote his pivotal book The Wisdom of Insecurity.

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. 

“Perhaps the foremost interpreter of Eastern disciplines for the contemporary West, Alan Watts had the rate gift of ‘writing beautifully the un-writable’. Watts begins with scholarship and intellect and proceeds with art and eloquence to the frontiers of the spirit. A fascinating entry into the deepest ways of knowing.”
