"Late in his life, Alan Watts presented a series of seminars called Zen Reconsidered aboard his houseboat in Sausalito, California." "His talks reflect a lifetime of, first, intensive learning and brilliant scholarship, and then many years of zazen, the practice of Zen meditation. He delighted in all forms of Zen practice, from zazen to calligraphy to tea ceremonies. He practiced what he preached - and in the course of his life transformed from an intense intellectual to a joyous and spontaneous free spirit who loved laughter, life, and Zen meditation." "Why practice Zen? Alan Watts said he did it for the pure enjoyment of it - and then he showed us how study and Zen meditation can lead to far greater pleasure in every moment of our lives."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
