Celebrating the Life & Works of Alan Watts

Celebrating the Life & Works

of Alan Watts

When you stop talking to yourself and are simply aware of what is… you suddenly find that the past and the future have completely disappeared!”

— Alan Watts from Philosophies of Asia

About Us

The Alan Watts Organization is a descendant of the Electronic University, which Alan and his son Mark Watts co-created shortly before Alan’s death in 1973. Our goal is to perpetuate Alan Watts’ legacy by providing a definitive online resource for information about Alan’s written and recorded works.


We also maintain and curate the vast collection Alan Watts’ audio and video works. Theses recordings were created by Alan, and recorded by Alan, Mark Watts, and American sound artist and humorist, Henry “Sandy” Jacobs. In addition to the original lectures, Mark and his father crafted audio courses guiding listeners through Alan’s recordings, and we’re presently working to complete our digital archive by converting reels, cassettes, VHS, and early digital formats produced by the original Electronic University.


Moving forward, our efforts will go into making Alan’s work more accessible by continuing to develop public synopses, robust search functionality, and linked samples of his recordings. Overall we hope to make Alan’s work more widely available, and to further enhance the archive that has been maintained since the mid-1970’s through remastering and creative derivations.
