It was when I came across Alan Watts that my mind began to explode, implode, and come back together in ways I never knew possible. Alan Watts was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. He is an incredible example of the power of language – if we can learn to articulate for others, then we create an opening for people to take in an unfamiliar concept.

You’ll find 4 mixes of chillset and classical music intertwined with some of his best lectures.

I meditate to these. I play them in the background while I’m working. I listen to them when I’m feeling a little off and want to get my head back on straight. They’re amazing for road trips through the desert. Lay around with your friends and listen to them while you stare at the ceiling pondering life.

A huge thank you and shoutout to QMAmusic for producing these mixes. Check out their YouTube channel here.

About Lauren Rains

Hi my name is Lauren Rains. I write about the human experience. Through thick and thin, I’m dedicated to growth, adventure, integrity, and love. The Mad To Live is based on my pursuits, experiments, research, and lessons of challenge and triumph in all areas of life, including being entrepreneur, a writer, a philosopher, a traveler, a teacher, a student, a creative, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a significant other, a stranger and the list goes on. At the end of the day, I believe human beings are here for two reasons: 1.) to love one another with total acceptance, and 2.) to see what we’re made of as we create the possibilities for an abundant life for ourselves and for others. No more bullshit, let's just enjoy our lives.
