Through my clients’ journeys and my own, I have found that philosophy, in particular Mindfulness, has helped me to gain a calmer perspective on life, and although not part of any particular religion, faith or philosophy, I respect and admire every one. Below are some quotes that have, in some capacity, helped my clients and myself through the challenging parts of their lives
Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Born in Chislehurst, England, he moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York.
For me, although Alan Watts passed away over 40 years ago, his lectures, insights and explanations of philosophy, in particular Buddhism and Zen, have personally helped me through turbulent times.
If you have a moment, I encourage you to take a few minutes to listen to some of his lectures by pressing any of the play buttons on the right. They are not long, and can inspire some interesting thoughts and debates, especially with the world getting faster and faster, and more demanding.
Have a listen, I very much doubt you’ll be disappointed.
