Danny Sangra – animations for Waking Up

Watts going on

Waking Up is a hugely popular meditation and mindfulness app set up by neuroscientist and author Sam Harris. As well as offering daily guided meditations, it allows you to listen to philosophers, spiritual teachers and scientists, one of whom is the late Alan Watts. Watts was a speaker and writer on spiritual ideas, especially Zen, Buddhism and Taoism, whose recorded talks have continued to inspire people since his death in 1973. Among those people is Danny Sangra, so he was delighted to be asked by Waking Up to create some animations for their Alan Watts Collection. The first features audio from ‘Ways of Liberation’, with more to follow. So, sit back listen to Alan’s very Home Counties tones, and watch Danny’s visual interpretations.
