Exchange as a Practice of the Gurdjieff Teaching

​T​h​e 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 tradition.

All are welcomed.

Our talks are held at
First Parish Church of Cambridge
3 Church Street, Cambridge, MA
Harvard Square T-stop

The 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'.

G. I. Gurdjieff
