Anne Watts’s philosophies are strongly shaped by her experience as the daughter of philosopher, author, and lecturer Alan Watts (1915–1973), who popularised Zen Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies for the counterculture of the 1960s.

“The Collected Letters of Alan Watts” is edited by his daughters, Joan Watts and Anne Watts, add rich, behind-the scenes biographical commentary that reveal the remarkable arc of Watts’s colourful and controversial life – from his school days in England to his priesthood in the Anglican Church to his alternative lifestyle and experimentation with LSD in the heyday of the late sixties.

His engaging letters cover a vast range of subject matter, with recipients that include C.G. Jung, Henry Miller, Gary Snyder, Aldous Huxley, Reinhold Niebuhr, Timothy Leary, Joseph Campbell, and James Hillman.

Anne Watts is a certified hypnotherapist and an educator and counsellor in the areas of human sexuality, sexual abuse, family stress, self-esteem, healing the inner child, and financial and ageing issues.

Since 1985, she has facilitated hundreds of workshops all over the world. She lives in Santa Rosa, California, in a deeply loving relationship with her husband, Mark Kupke.
