Spring 2017 Series
Introduction to the Ideas and
Practice of the Gurdjieff Teaching
Presented by experienced members of the Society,
followed by questions
Next talk: Wednesday, June 7, 7:30pm Exchange as a Practice of the Gurdjieff Teaching
The Gurdjieff teaching
is a way of awakening and nurturing a lifetime of inquiry. An essential
part of the Gurdjieff practice is the effort to express our questions
about the undiscovered potentiality in each of us.
Our effort to articulate these questions regarding the nature of who "I
am," the world around us, and a possible spiritual development are
fundamental to this teaching.
Each of us is called in a unique way. The way in which we respond to
the call to being is the basis for an essential and helpful exchange.
We invite you to this evening's gathering with several of our members
to engage around your questions about inner work and the Gurdjieff
questions? Want to receive updates on future events?

evolution of man is the evolution of
his consciousness. And
'consciousness' cannot evolve unconsciously. The evolution of man is the evolution of his
will, and 'will' cannot evolve involuntarily. The evolution of man is the evolution of
his power of doing, and 'doing' cannot be the result of things which 'happen'.
