Zen and Now
With Alan Watts
In Zen and Now, Alan Watts emphasizes the Zen philosophy of living daily in the Now. This inspired scholar of Buddhism encourages us to appreciate the beauty of our own backyard.
"One need not travel the world to see the universe," Watts says. The rich visual content of this film, in fact, consists of nature shots from a single garden.
For several minutes of the film, the audience is invited to meditate when Alan Watts suggests: "Don't name anything; allow light and sound to play with your senses." Watts and Zen and Now offer all a rewarding experience.
"Useful in many situations, from creative writing to psychology."
