Gurdjieff Society of Massachusetts is an affiliate of the Gurdjieff
Foundation of New York.
The Society is nonsectarian and nondenominational,
and its membership is
composed of individuals from a wide variety of personal, ethnic, and
professional backgrounds. The aims
of the Society are
preserve the ideas and methods of the noted spiritual teacher George
explore what their practice requires in today's world,
maintain a community of seekers that welcomes new members who share
these interests, and
contribute to society's understanding of the human condition, both the
great promise and the great peril.
I tend to compartmentalize my activities—job, church, chores, yoga,
errands, fun. Some are mundane, but others have a spiritual
quality that remind me of my place in the universe and bring me closer
to a fuller connection with my life. I find that I need this
connection. It refreshes me and gives me a renewed purpose.
Yet I still feel imbalanced. My everyday activities tend to
dominate my life. I wonder if taking more yoga classes would help
balance things. If only I had the time...
We would like to examine this dilemma. How can I live a more
balanced, connected life? Can I find a new relationship with my
activities, a new attitude towards them? Gurdjieff used the
expression "work in life", but what does this really mean?
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'.
