The Way of Liberation: Essays and Lectures on the Transformation of the Self
Alan Watts helped shape the thinking of a generation through his efforts to introduce and interpret Asian wisdom in the West. This collection of essays and lectures spans his career, from his first essay on Zen Buddhism in 1955 to his final seminar, given only weeks before he died in 1973. The last essay The Practice of Meditation is written and illustrated in his own hand.
