Alan Watts Student Forum Info Meeting

220px-Alan_WattsThe almost too-friendly-to-function Bryan Garrett-Farb ’14 wants to learn you something:

This half credit student forum engages with the work of Alan Watts, a
beat generation philosopher who popularized Zen Buddhism, Daoism, and Hinduism in the West. The class will read and discuss Watts’ work and the work of other related thinkers. It will also provide a framework
for students to implement Watts’ philosophy into their lives through
practice. To learn more, please come to one of two intro sessions this
week. Tuesday 1-28 at 6 pm in Allbritton 004 and Thursday 1-30 at 6 pm
in Allbritton 304. Please email me if you are interested in showing up
so I can let you know of any changes to time or location.

Date: Tuesday, January 28th and Thursday, January 30th
Time: 6pm
Place: Allbritton 004 and Allbritton 304, respectively
