Alan Watts Being in the Way Podcast

Take a deep dive into the collected recordings of Alan Watts with Alan’s son, Mark Watts.

Being in the Way is the official Alan Watts podcast series and will take you through a tour of the Alan Watts Archive’s 100-hour tape collection – including recordings not heard in 40 years. We will meet some of the people being influenced by the works of Alan Watts today and learn a little of the history behind how these remarkable recordings were made.

Mark and his guests offer reflections on Alan’s ideas— ideas that were radically innovative and groundbreaking in the sixties and seventies, and yet seem to have come of age today.

Being in the Way is brought to you by the Alan Watts Organization, in partnership with Ram Dass’ Be Here Now Network.


So awesome! I love having these incredible minds all on one podcast network together!


This time on the Being in the Way Podcast, Alan Watts delves into questions of identity, purpose and buying into the ‘Myth of Myself’.

This series is brought to you by the Alan Watts Organization and Ram Dass’ Love Serve Remember Foundation. Visit for full talks from Alan Watts.

“The most fascinating problem in the world is who am I? What do you feel when you say the word I? I myself?

This problem has fascinated me for many years. Most Western people locate their ego inside their heads. This is the ordinary average conception of what is oneself.” – Alan Watts

In this episode, Alan Watts explores:
  • The question of our own identity and our place in the world
  • Myths of the self handed down through history
  • Viewing ourselves and the world with a “floodlight consciousness” – rather than the narrow “spotlight consciousness” we are taught to see the world through
  • How we are not born into this world, but grow out of it – “In the same way an apple tree apples, the Earth peoples.”
