Work as Play

This week I’ve joined Mary Jaksch’s Virtual Zen Retreat: How to Turn Anxiety into Inspiration. What a beautiful course – thank-you Mary, Deb, and Miraz… I’ll be talking to Mary later this month about her work in the Personal Journeys series of interviews here, so watch this space.

In today’s Zen post, Mary shared this video by Alan Watts, filmed over 10 years ago talking about Work as Play, spontaneity, pleasure, Hindu philosophy, the atomic bomb, Dante and enjoying our lives. It’s so NOT like the 15 second attention span, hi-speed, blip-verts that we’re so accustomed to watching these days… change gear for a few minutes and maybe be inspired – he even sings at one point – magical!
